About water on Mars, the origins of life and the future of Earth

MOSCOW. (Alexander Bagrov for RIA Novosti) - "Martian water has been touched and tasted" by NASA's Phoenix lander spacecraft, which has identified water in a sample of soil collected from Mars. This will expand our so far fragmented and incomplete knowledge about the origins of the Solar System.

It will also benefit evolutionary biologists looking for the origins of life. Currently they can study life on Earth, which is not enough for learning the origins of life and the rules of its development. Water is life, and finding extraterrestrial life would be extremely important for learning more about the world around us.
