Did you get a chance to watch the live coverage by NASA about their discovery of evidence that liquid water has existed on the surface of Mars in the recent past? If not, they'll be rebroadcasting it over the course of the day. I watched CNN, but they cut it off after the first 15 minutes or so. The actual press conference went on for almost 2 hours, so there's lots more information.

If you want to watch it on the Internet, link to http://www.nasa.gov/ntv/ntvweb.html and choose one of the video stream providers.

What you didn't get to see on TV was that Keith Cowing from Nasawatch got to ask the first question to the researchers. Keith was the guy who broke the story in the first place, and got everyone so excited, so I'm glad NASA gave him the opportunity to ask a question.

NASA PRESS CONFERENCE CLEARS UP MARS water DISCOVERY

Although rumors have been flying around the Internet for the last couple of days, NASA officially announced evidence this morning that liquid water could have been on the surface Mars in the recent geological past. Photos taken recently by the Mars Global Surveyor show gullies formed by recently flowing liquid water - in one case, the deposit of rock and debris from one of these channels obscures recently created sand dunes.

DISCOVERY CHANNEL SPONSORS MARS RESEARCH STATION

The Mars Society recently announced that it has gained a major new sponsor for the Flashline Mars Arctic Research Station - a simulated mars exploration base located on Devon Island in the Canadian Arctic. In exchange for generous sponsorship of the project, the Discovery Channel will get exclusive TV media rights to activities within the station for the 2000 and 2001 seasons.

EIGHT NEW extrasolar planets DISCOVERED

Astronomers at the Geneva Observatory in Switzerland announced that they have discovered eight new extrasolar planets, ranging in mass from less than Saturn to 15 times that of Jupiter. The observations were made using the 1.2 metre Leonhard Euler telescope at the ESO La Silla Observatory in Chile.
