Flowing Water On Mars? NASA Reports Stunning New Discovery

8/4/11 06:42 PM ET

NASA reported on Thursday that new pictures revealing “dark, finger-like features” on Mars that change seasonally indicate the possibility of flowing salt-water on the Red Planet.

The pictures were captured by its Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), a craft launched in 2005.

“NASA’s Mars Exploration Program keeps bringing us closer to determining whether the Red Planet could harbor life in some form,” NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said in the statement, “and it reaffirms Mars as an important future destination for human exploration.”
