Here are more interesting results revealed by NASA’s Curiosity rover on the planet Mars.  According to data sent by the rover, Martian soil and weather conditions "could put liquid brine in the soil at night."  That may be enough moisture to support life.  Some scientists have suggested that Mars may have been covered by a shallow salt water ocean millions of years ago.  The rover is trying to find evidence that simple organisms may have lived in that long ago sea.  The search of life beyond Earth continues.  Aloha, Russ.
