Now that NASA has confirmed water’s presence on Mars’ surface, Google decided to celebrate the landmark discovery in Tuesday’s Google Doodle, which shows the little red planet taking a big gulp of that wet stuff.
NASA told journalists on Monday that briny water flows down certain craters and canyons on the planet in its summer months, the Guardian reports. The revelation means that the seemingly dry and desert-like planet could potentially support life.
It is still uncertain what exactly makes the water flow, but it does contribute to NASA’s belief that a manned mission to Mars would have value to explore the planet’s surface further.
