So, to save you all the click

Some random internet guy named "WowForReeel" watched some rover footage saw some relatively darker spots on the ground and decided that it's water all by himself.

You'd think so.  But as part of their deal with the underground reptilians, NASA has to suppress certain knowledge about Kaw'we'mah or "Mars" as we surface people call it.  It's all about making sure they keep the secrets of...     ***CARRIER LOST***

Betting that it is too cold for water, so probably something else.
Not sure it is cold enough for CO2 to condense though...

Well, they are thinking that really super salty water, as might exist there, could sometimes flow as a liquid. However these are pictures of dust around some rocks.

NASA Scientist; We just found water on Mars!  This is huge, this changes everything.  This could mean there was or is some sort of life there we have to tell the world.

NASA Administrator:  What do you say we publish a few hundred photos along with the one showing the water and just let people notice for themselves.  Besides we don't want to compete wit the superbowl for air time

Omg, and look, moisture lines in between where the rover tracks are too!!! Definitely not darker oxidized rock/dirt under the sand that was uncovered or kicked up any by the rocks or the rover...!!!!

KellyX: Omg, and look, moisture lines in between where the rover tracks are too!!! Definitely not darker oxidized rock/dirt under the sand that was uncovered or kicked up any by the rocks or the rover...!!!!


Exactly.

That's not water, just darker sand with light dust on top and wind around some rocks revealing the darker sand below. As pointed out, notice how the rover tracks have some darkness where the blades dug. What that most likely means is the area has dense sand and a layer of dust on top from a dust storm. Dense sand may look darker or at least a different color then dust and this is likely what we are seeing where the tire tracks dug in. Also the wind around stones will be more intense and lighter dust will blow away instead of settling there, again revealing the dark sand below. It would be great if it was water, but this is exactly what you would expect to see in a sandy area after a dust storm.

The more important sketchy Mars thing, in a long line of unusual behavior for NASA was not taking a single close up photo of the 'rock' that appeared out of literally nowhere.

We're given a "yeah we checked it out its a rock, trust us." I mean, they could have easily taken more pictures and released them to the public but instead choose the "nothing to see here move along" route.

I hope in 50 years we look back at this as one of the largest failures of NASA ever. We've got seasonal methane changes, organic compounds in the soil. definitive history of liquid water, dark plumes that appear seasonally on the surface, and we're busy pointing lasers at rocks. Just embarrassing.

This.

I'm not a scientist, but my understanding is that if there were any liquid water on Mars, it couldn't be on the surface.  It would have to be underground where it could reach the right pressure and temperature to actually be water.
 
2014-02-05 12:31:51 PM
I thought water can't exist on the surface of Mars as it sublimates due to the low atmospheric pressure. Either our understanding of the physical properties of water is wrong, all of the pressure measurements we've taken and validated through design and use of aero-braking is wrong, or that isn't water.

I'm not a scientist qualified to comment on Martian geology, but if there was a dewatering from below of salty water, it would approach the surface in the fashion you see in the photo.  Most of the time, the water below the surface won't be forced up so much as running down, and I'm not sure the way the surface is here would allow for this.  In other words, don't expect a gusher from below to just this spot.

Water or not, it's a very interesting color change I don't think the rover has seen before. I'd be surprised if it wasn't investigated and explained. The way the color obviously does change slightly below the surface crust doesn't explain the way the dark is in a ring shape without more obvious aerial erosion/exposure like the rock in the upper right of the photo.  In other words, you can't rule anything out yet.

TL;DR: It's time to poke it with a stick.

Yea, NASA makes it sound like they got a text from aliens every time they discovered some mundane (to the rest of us) particle.  If they found water on mars they would probably collectively lose their minds and rub feces all over themselves.

Are you trying to say that Phoenix found Polyethylene Glycol? I think that would be a bigger shock than finding salty water.
