Universe Today: short-term liquid water on Mars?

Ian O’Neill at Universe Today has an interesting story on some possible (temporary) liquid water spotted on the leg of the Phoenix lander shortly after it touched down on Mars. The images are interesting, but not convincing. Still, it’s an intriguing story and it’s worth investigating. I don’t have any more information than Ian does, so head over to UT and leave your comments there.
