Mars Exploration Rover Mission

It's a bit "old news", but do you follow the Mars Exploration Rover (MER) Mission?
I find it quite fascinating myself.

Visit the official Mars Rover site:

for the latest updates on the Mars Rover Spirit explorations.

Yes yes NASA needs that success but there is terrible news. Something is wrong with Spirit, they do not know exactly what yet. NASA has lost "intelligent contact" with Spirit. Since Wedsnday all they have recieved is unintellagble nonsense. If Spirit is lost, it is perhaps the most terrible thing that could have happened to NASA right now. Her twin Opportunity is scheduled to land Saturday. Lets hop for the best. Heres the story http://www.nzherald.co.nz/storydispl...toryID=3545193

I also heard that they now have proof that there are water(ice) on Mars!
This has been suspected for a while, but not confirmed until now..

They have also found channels wich they suspect could have been rivers....
Great News!
This may prove that there has been (or still is) life on Mars.
Even if it's only primitive life, it will be one of the greatest discoveries ever!
A lot of major religions will have some serious explanations to do!

Finding water does absolutely nothing to guarantee finding life. I am 100% certain life outside this planet will never be found.

Personally I don't think it really matters (theologically) if life is ever found outside Earth, I don't think it will be, but it sure wouldn't change or affect my beliefs in any way if it ever were.

Cool..

I'm 100% sure that we will find life outside earth someday.
All the weird places life exists on Earth is proof enough for me that life can exist other places than here.
And the fact that water has been discovered on Mars makes me even more sure..
