    Anyone want to take a guess at what the finding is?

    I am guessing they found Waldo.

    Rumored to be an announcement of having found flowing water.

    Flowing water would be massive news!

    I don't know it too. But OIL isn't it for sure... Costs to much to bring it to earth. I think it's as it always was with human kind: we need to explore and own.

    oh so it not OIL then! Big Smile does that mean you think it may be WMD or OBL !?

    Oil would be huge news, seeing as how it's generally comprised of dead creatures.

    It's got to be water, although perhaps they've found the Colonel's Secret Recipe?

    I keep trying to tell you,  it's Martians.  You just find it hard to believe because they use mind-rays to control your thoughts.

     

    I've got a tin-foil hat.

    Water would be pretty interesting, though.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they've found water.

    Back to your question about what's significant about Mars?

    Eventually we will have to move off Earth to find other inhabitable planets, I guess colonizing Mars is naturally the first step to take.

    Meanwhile, over on the other side of the planet Earth, it's Convert or Else.

    Um, yeah. So when does the colonization start?

    Why will we 'have' to move off Earth?

    I'll call your crazie & raise you a crazie:

    ...
    Nabil Shaath says: "President Bush said to all of us: 'I'm driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, "George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan." And I did, and then God would tell me, "George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq …" And I did. And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me, "Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East." And by God I'm gonna do it.'"

    Instead of colonizing Mars, we should blow it up, after blowing up the moon.

    Sure that's a valid point. Tongue Out What I'm wondering in general is if they find something, that is rare on earth, is it worth it bringing it back to earth... Transport costs a lot from mars to earth.
