Here's an interesting note regarding mars, about a billion years
ago, when there may have been water.

WASHINGTON, Feb 2 (CNN) - NASA officials unveiled a photograph
Monday that proves for the first time that there was once a
flowing river meandering across the planet.

Vice President Al Gore, who was on hand for the unveiling, joked
that scientists can now say "a river ran through it."

NASA scientists say the photograph does not confirm when the
river existed.  But they estimate that it was about 1 billion
years ago.

A second photo also unveiled Monday revealed evidence of
horizontal layers on the surface of Mars -- which could prove
Mars has something similar to the Grand Canyon in Arizona.
