Internet Reacts To NASA’s Major Announcement Of Water On Mars


So there’s flowing water on Mars, apparently.

That’s what we learned from NASA’s major announcement today, and it could even point to the possibility of life on Mars. Although, it’ll probably be microbial rather than little green lads running about, which is a bit of a letdown.

Besides the announcement breaking the internet, and the live stream of the press conference being fairly dreadful, we were able to discern that as scientific discoveries go, this is pretty massive.

And, naturally, Twitter was quick to react to the Red Planet’s big news.

Many people were disappointed there were no actual aliens involved…

Or Doctor Who, for that matter…

Some even wondered whether the timing of NASA’s announcement was deliberate…

And then things just got very silly indeed…
