Today's Google Doodle Celebrates The Discovery Of Water On Mars

California, U.S.A.;Sept 29: In celebration of the announcement by scientists that flowing water is almost definitely present on the surface of Mars, today's Google Doodle shows Mars enjoying a large glass of the stuff.

And looking pretty damn cute about it if we're honest.NASA said last week that there had been a 'major science finding' on the Red Planet and a 'mystery had been solved'.

And yesterday, they revealed that long, dark streaks found on the Martian terrain are most likely explained by the presence of flowing water on the surface.

This discovery raises the chances of Mars being home to some form of life.'Mars is not the dry, arid planet that we thought of in the past,' said NASA's Jim Green. 'Liquid water has been found on Mars.'Researchers are now focused on learning where the water comes from he added.

In the meantime, we're just going to enjoy this gif of the red planet taking a big slurp of water and looking pretty pleased with itself.
