White veins of minerals coursing through rocks on the floor of Mars's Gale Crater are providing the strongest evidence yet that the rover's landing site once was a wetter, warmer place. Logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.

Interesting for scientists, but not so interesting for people below the poverty line. They can see the billions that have been spent to get that picture, while they are thinking were to get the next meal for their family.

Lets look outside our world to the stars beyond - it can't all be about us all the time; sometimes it is wonderful to look to the stars and the possibilities that the endless galaxies may unravel before our very wide in our life time!! Space Rocks!!

Fascinating, as is the finding, reported in the Smithsonian Magazine, that "molecules of glycoaldehyde, a simple sugar-an essential biochemical building block," has been found in gases "surrounding a Sun-like star 400 light years distant,"
And numerous reports have been made of finding H2O molecules in vast parts of inter stellar space.
