Mars water discovery just 1 piece of the puzzle in figuring out which planets can sustain life

NASA, in a highly anticipated paper published in the journal Nature Geoscience, revealed strong evidence that seasonal salty water still flows on the Red Planet. Thanks to new techniques and the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, scientists confirmed the dark streaks visible in this photo, released on Sept. 28, 2015, are caused by flowing water.
