I was unable to post this when the news broke on the 26th of this month, but I am finally getting around too it now. The Mars rover named Curiosity has discovered water locked into the soil of the red planet.
Each cubic foot of Martin soil has about two pints of liquid water, usually bound to other minerals reports the article in The Guardian news report by Alok Jha.
