It’s about time! Yes, while the world at large is craving a frothy beer or a beautiful glass of wine, both Science and Nature have had a yearning for briney water. Well, at least for chemical reactions that can show the recent contact with such delicious libations.

Although the swimming holes and alien fountains that come to the imagination may not be the reality of said discovery, it does make a stronger argument for the existence of living bacteria on the red planet.
To that end, let’s raise a toast with your drink of choice and cheer NASA for a job well done.
