Mars = water

In an exciting press release (at least as exciting as scientific press releases go), NASA announced today that it is nearly certain that at one point Mars had significant amounts of water.

And water, as we know, equals life. Nearly every aquatic environment on earth has some life…extremophiles abound, dealing with heat, pressure, and pH as needed to continue living in terrifically difficult conditions. I think that everyone believes that we’ll find evidence of life at some point.
