Water on Mars, and other Solar System News.

The latest indicators are back to saying that Mars contains significant quantities of water, which would be good news for future exploration and fans of Kim Stanley Robinson.

Also, gaseous seas have been spotted on Titan.


And there’s this weird football shaped object near Pluto.

    My Money Is On Enceladus
    The easiest place to look for life in our Solar System now seems to be Enceladus, a moon of Saturn which is nice enough to spray water right out into space where it’s easy to pick up and bring back to Earth for analysis.

    And Technically…
    …it was LIQUID seas that were detected on Titan via radar, of a material that is GASEOUS here on Earth. A "gaseous sea" is a contradiction in terms.

      Of course, but language is used loosely here. We pour (liquefied) "gas" into our cars. However, the headline could have been phrased differently.

        Please tell me you’re joking.
