    We'll get better pics than even Hubble of Pluto and it's surroundings due to this thing.

    Curiosity Rover Drills Into Mars Rock, Finds Water - Yahoo News


    Evidence has now been found that helps fill in the gaps about Mars' past and when it lost it's water.
    The [NASA Curiosity] rover drilled into a piece of Martian rock called Cumberland and found some ancient water hidden within it. Researchers were then able to test a key ratio in the water with Curiosity's onboard instruments to gather more data about when Mars started to lose its water, NASA officials said. In the same sample, Curiosity also detected the first organic molecules it has found.
    Curiosity measured the ratio of deuterium (heavy hydrogen) to "normal" hydrogen. This D-to-H ratio can help scientists see how long it takes for water molecules to escape, because the lighter hydrogen molecules fly toward the upper atmosphere more freely than deuterium does.

    The D-to-H ratio in Cumberland is about half the ratio found in the Martian atmosphere's water vapor today, NASA officials said. This suggests that the planet lost much of its surface water after the Cumberland rock formed, space agency officials added in the same statement.

    But the water sample is also about three times "heavier" than Earth's oceans. This means that if Mars' surface water started off with a D-to-H ratio like Earth's, then most of the Martian water likely disappeared before Cumberland formed about 3.9 billion to 4.6 billion years ago.

    You still think there's no way there can be other life than on earth?.......

    Think again...

    Because NASA's Kepler telescope, permanently observing a relatively minuscule patch of universe, has passed the 1000 mark in terms of verified exo-planets, with a total of more than 4000 planet candidates discovered.

    Good that Elon Musk won't give up and do another test with landing those rockets next month!

    SpaceX To Attempt Rocket Landing For Second Time

    7 mins until another attempt for the SPACEX.

    However they've got 5 mins to fix 2 issues, so I'm doubting it'll happen.

    Edit: Launch aborted, how fun, lulz.

    Yeah I was really looking forward to it.

    This always happens, I've watched so many rocket abortions but I always forget or I'm too busy for the successful ones
