NASA : Mars once had water

"NASA scientists say the Mars rovers have found what they were looking for --
hard evidence that the red planet was once "soaking wet."
"We have concluded the rocks here were once soaked in liquid water," said
Steve Squyres of Cornell University. He's the principal investigator for the
science instruments on Opportunity and its twin rover, Spirit.
"The second question we've tried to answer: Were these rocks altered by
liquid water? We believe definitively, yes," Squyres said."
So, perhaps at one time there was a Deja Thoris, and golden skimmers plied
the placid Martian canals.

Maybe there was more truth in the "canals" than previously thought!
