Long-running rover Opportunity has come across an area of water-formed clay minerals on Mars.
Discovery News said:
NASA's long-lived Mars rover Opportunity that beat newcomer sister probe Curiosity to an area containing water-formed clay minerals, has rolled into a region that may be far richer than scientists first realized.
This is indeed a great find. One more notch for the water-on-Mars belt. Gale Crater was thought to be full of liquid water back several billion years ago, so hopefully Curiosity will have a similar find, or better :) Oh and of course, YAY Opportunity!
