Old news: The European Space Agency today released a press release announcing the results of a science paper that appears to have found evidence of a planet-wide groundwater system on Mars.
I call this old news because I reported on this paper a month ago here on Behind the Black: Well water likely available across Mars.
We are now near the end of my February birthday-month fund-raising drive. If anything should justify a donation or subscription, this story should provide it. You can either wait for the mainstream press to rewrite press releases, or you can support my effort to get real news to you now, reported with both enthusiasm and honest skepticism.
I really do hate to brag, but I also don’t believe in false modesty.
