Who Says There's No Good News? There's Water on Mars

Water, water everywhere? But not a drop to drink.

Mars rover Curiosity finds water in first sample of planet surface "One of the most exciting results
from this very first solid sample ingested by Curiosity is the high percentage of water in the soil," said Leshin. "About 2 percent of the soil on the surface of Mars is made up of water, which is a great resource, and interesting scientifically." The sample also released significant carbon dioxide, oxygen, and sulfur compounds when heated.

It is still amazing to realize that we have a robot.... on Mars.
