Liquid water on the surface of Mars! NASA has just announced news that it has observed the phenomenon shown above. These dark surface flows in the Southern hemispheres seem to be a volatile substance, and the leading hypothesis is that it is heavily salty liquid water. [full video] [NASA TV] [more]

NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander snapped this true 3D image of a trench it scraped. Grab those 3D glasses and get ready for red-and-blue splendor.
Known informally as the “La Mancha” trench, the nearly 2-inch (5-cm) depression reveals an ice layer beneath the Martian surface. Phoenix uncovered the first solid evidence of ice water on Mars, although previous probes had detected suspected quantities of such subsurface ice.
