Apparently, Mars has liquid water, at least in the summer...

I wonder what implications will be for colonization and terraformation, not to mention finding native bacteria.

That is the exciting part, if there is liquid water, even a briny as they think it is, then the chances for life are thousands of times higher.

I honestly don't know what it will do to colonization efforts though, since we have known for a long time that there is frozen water, so thawing it out wouldn't be that much more difficult than desalinating it... If it truly is an indicator of large underground aquifers though, THAT is a big deal since it changes our opinions of the amount of water on Mars.

VERY EXCITING!
