Life on Mars

I have a friend on Mars. Do you? Along with 22,000 plus people, I’m receiving tweets from JPL’s Phoenix Mars Rover. JPL is sending out twitter messages from the Mars rover like: “ Are you ready to celebrate? Well, get ready: We have ICE!!!!! Yes, ICE, *WATER ICE* on Mars! w00t!!! Best day ever!! ”

Woah. That means water on Mars. That’s totally worth a 2 year journey throughout the Milky Way. JPL is even answering individual questions about the rover program.

If you’re not on twitter go to and sign up, or text “Join” to 40404 and then add MarsPhoenix as one of your friends. Intergalactic tweets and I thought my tweets from India were cool.

  1. They’ve assumed that for a while, but it’s nice that we got a “taste” of it as they say (although this “taste” would in reality kill us).

    It’s nice to know that space exploration takes precedence over the mortgage crisis.
