Did yall hear? The Curiosity rover found an old streambed that shows that water used to run on Mars. :3

"From the size of gravels it carried, we can interpret the water was moving about 3 feet per second, with a depth somewhere between ankle and hip deep,"

"...suggests flows continued or repeated over a long time, not just once or for a few years."

Oh god yes I love Mars

A widely accepted theory as to why the water vanished is due to the likelihood of a solar flare in the form of a CME (coronal mass ejection {pockets of convection just below the surface of the sun reach critical mass}), which came along and blew away most of the magnetic strength from the core of the planet, and wiping out most of the ozone layer.

Thanks for sharing what you know. It's interesting stuff.

Well, this was not the pic I was looking for, but highly relevant. Lol.

And thank you! I find Mars a very interesting topic.
