SUMMARY: Scientists working with the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit believe it's discovered another rock that was affected by liquid water in the past.

Indeed&#33; At least they mentioned that Oppotunity had finished inspecting its heat shield. <_<

marsanomalyresearch.com more about liquids on Mars, amongst other finds.

is it possible that the rovers have lasted so long because Mars actually isn&#39;t as inhospitable as we have been led to believe?
