Life on Mars

This summer NASA confirmed liquid water exists on Mars. Humans have been collectively dreaming of life elsewhere in the universe for so long, now, it almost seems like complete fantasy, the fever dream of science fiction. Isn't it thrilling to think we might actually wake tomorrow to hear of LIFE on Mars? For our kids and our grand kids to see life unfold in real time on another planet? Think of all the questions this will answer about earth, the beginnings of life, about evolution, about our place in the Universe ... And think of all the new questions this will raise about, well, everything! Science is beautiful and exciting and so very humbling. Thankyou NASA for all the important work you do!
