Water on Mars? Scientists See Possibility of Salty Water in Martian 'Seasonal Flows'

A team of scientists, led by Alfred S.

The potentially game-changing discovery, which was enabled by an analysis performed by an undergraduate student, has got the astronomy, planetary and astrobiology science communities rather excited.
