Fresh water lake on Mars!


Life on Mars may have existed 3.6 billion years ago. I don’t want to think of the life of Mars today. I am now thinking of the lake. NASA’s curiosity rover discovered the evidence of fresh water lake on Mars.

I celebrated the discovery of the evidence of lake today by reading Yeats.

‘I will arise and go now, and go to Mars,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet’s wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.’

        We sure can. Nicely surreal and curious connection here with Yeat’s poetry and Gusev crater – at one stage crater lake.

        Thanks Taslima Nasreen, great fusion of art and science and wonder and knowledge. I’m officially impressed! :-)

    Incidentally, y’all probably know this already but China just landed Jade Rabbit (YuTu) on our Moon :

    Plus had another spacecraft fly past and image Near-Earth Asteroid Toutatis :

    although that was earlier imaged by RADAR as well :
