Who else is amazed and excited by this discovery?!

Just goes to show there are some smart folks out there that constantly push mankind's knowledge further than ever before.

Now back to the Kardashians...
 
DH mentioned this earlier! I haven't had a chance to look it up yet. Im sure its all a lie though. Just like walking on the moon ;-)
 
I'm kind of upset. I'm packing to go there, only to find out I need to take my 10-stop ND filter now. :angry:
 
Where's the pics?

*Flowing* water... :)

We already knew of frozen water.

Eegads, you aren't one of those "lunar landing conspiracy" folks are you ??
 
1. It looks like wind-blown sand to me.

2. If there was water sometime in the past, where did it go?

3. So what?

4. How much is this costing us?

1. They ran spectrographs and detyermined it to be water.

2. It's still there just less than there was at one point.

3. Furthering mankind's knowledge

4. A hell of a lot less than we spend trying to kill other humans in some desert.

It's way too easy to say: "What did NASA do for me? I don't see any benefits". However, in addition to runnah's comments, NASA has benefited humans through multiple inventions, inspirations, or research:

  • LEDs
  • Infrared ear thermometers
  • Artificial limbs
  • Ventricular assist devices
  • Anti-icing systems
  • Increased highway safety
  • Improved radial tires
  • Chemical detection/release alarms
  • Video enhancing and analysis systems
  • Land mine removal
  • Fire-resistant reinforcement
  • Firefighter gear
  • Temper foam
  • Enriched baby food
  • Portable cordless vacuums
  • Freeze drying technology
  • Harnessing solar energy
  • Pollution remediation
  • Water purification
  • Better software
  • Structural analysis software
  • Powdered lubricants
  • Et cetera

The movements they observed took place over four years
