NASA scientists say they have found new evidence that a groundwater-fed lake may have existed in an Mars crater that adds to the increasingly complex picture of the Red Planet's early evolution.

Sorry, but "MAY HAVE" doesn't do it for me. NASA, FACTS only please

Fascinating,but , Terry, NASA can not at this point along the evidentiary PATH, give us a "fact" about past water flow on Mars. The fact is that at this time they can only say that "We see these things, and they point to such and such, which leads us to believe such and such." Anything beyond that would be improper science.

By the way, I think it worth mentioning, here, that according to the Smithsonian magazine astronomers have found , "...for the first time, molecules of glycolaldehyde,, a simple sugar-an essential BIOCHEMICAL building block- in gases surrounding a Sun-like star 400 light-years distant."

That this has been found appears to be a fact, that it points to possible origins of life, is a speculation...but an exciting one.
