White House Briefed on Potential for Life on Mars

I did a double-take when I read the news on Slashdot this morning (the original article is on Aviation Week). The White House has been briefed by NASA officials concerning new data that is “much more complex” than the results of the test that confirmed water on Mars.

They’ve confirmed “Earth-like” soil and water. This latest news that has sparked intrigue may be related to the wet-chemical tests, where water from Earth is stirred with Martial soil. My mind is roiling with the possibilities. We may have to wait two to four weeks before an official announcement is made, though.

Go Phoenix!

I saw this news on Science Daily, and was thrilled.

I also saw you on AW--I'm Anya Smith over there, but seldom visit the site lately.
