Talkin’ Mars with Slosh

On Monday, September 28, 2015 NASA Scientists discovered liquid water on Mars. This news has made scientists think now more than ever that there could possibly be life on Mars. Associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at NASA, John Grunsfeld, said, “the existence of liquid water, even if it is super salty briny water, gives the possibility that if there’s life on Mars, that we have a way to describe how it might survive.” Paul “Slosh” Sloshberg, one of Academy’s science teachers, has his own opinions about the possibility of life on Mars.
