Later today, NASA may unveil a scientific breakthrough that could solve what it's calling "the Mars mystery." The announcement comes three days after the space agency announced that a "major scientific finding had been made" and "Mars mystery solved" on Twitter.

Well, they discovered recently flowing water. Not to downplay this discovery too much, but I was expecting "signs of ancient life". :(

I think it is an important discovery because (1) flowing water shows that life could possible exist (or have existed) on Mars and (2) flowing water could be accessed by future astronauts.

Flowing water is definitely a big discovery on Mars. To be honest I was expecting their big announcement to be a lot more mundane. The presence of flowing water on Mars opens up a lot more possibilities and makes the planet ten times more interesting.
