NASA's Curiosity rover has uncovered signs of an ancient freshwater lake on Mars that scientists say could have been a perfect spot for tiny primitive organisms to flourish if they ever existed on the red planet.
A researcher has spotted lava flows shaped like coils of rope near the equator of Mars, the first time such geologic features have been discovered outside of Earth.
ATLANTA (AP) — Nearly three-quarters of new mothers in the U.S. are breast-feeding their babies, but they are quitting too soon and resorting to infant formula too often, federal health officials said yesterday.
Mr. Paige, who is not part of the Curiosity team, added, "The question of whether life existed or exists on Mars today is still open."
This "illustrates just how complicated Mars' geologic history appears to really be," Paige wrote in an email.
