Liquid water flows on Mars today, boosting the odds that life could exist on the Red Planet, NASA announced yesterday. The enigmatic dark streaks on Mars - called recurring slope lineae - that appear seasonally on steep, relatively warm Martian slopes are caused by salty liquid water.

In light of this discovery, the search is on for finding where this Mars water is coming from, how it finds its way to the surface and how much of it is down there?
