Mars Rovers find more signs of water

Having vented my spleen about the recent elections in Australia in my previous article here’s a more upbeat story.

A heap of sites are reporting that the NASA Mars rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, have not only survived their Martian winter hibernation but have now both returned more evidence for water having existed on Mars.

This is a remarkable achievement given that both rovers have survived well past their 90 Martian days “warranty” (Spirit has managed 184 to date, Opportunity 163 as it landed just under three weeks later than Spirit).
