    Mars 'Curiosity' finds first evidence of water - a river of it

    This map shows the path on Mars of NASA's Curiosity rover toward Glenelg, an area where three terrains of scientific interest converge. Arrows mark geological features encountered so far that led to the discovery of what appears to be an ancient Martian streambed. The first site, dubbed Goulburn, is an area where the thrusters from the rover's descent stage blasted away a layer of loose material, exposing bedrock underneath. Goulburn gave scientists a hint that water might have transported the pebbly sandstone material making up the outcrop. The second feature, a naturally exposed rock outcrop named Link, stood out to the science team for its embedded, rounded gravel pieces. Such rounded shapes are strong evidence of water transport. The final feature, another naturally exposed rock outcrop named Hottah, offered the most compelling evidence yet of an ancient stream, as it contains abundant rounded pebbles. The grain sizes are also an important part of the evidence for water: the rounded pebbles, which are up to 1.6 inches (4 centimeters) in size, are too large to have been transported by wind.

    Is That a 'Traffic Signal' on Mars?


    NEW YORK: Are aliens using traffic signal to cross roads on Red Planet? Fun apart, NASA's Curiosity Mars rover has clicked a picture on the Martian surface that resembles a "traffic signal".

    The "traffic signal" was spotted by a British UFO enthusiast named Joseph White.

    Curiosity, while busy scanning the surface, snapped the photo.

    "I have been following the images from NASA since the start and I flick through them on the NASA website every day," White told the Western Daily Press.

    "I saw this one and I thought 'Hang on, that looks a bit strange," he added.

    As we wait for NASA reply, in all probability, it looks like another rock, the report added.
