They also found traces of methane in Mars’ atmosphere. These are groundbreaking discoveries! (click here to read more)
I’m a massive science nerd, so this is a big deal. Everyone’s writing about Curiosity’s findings, so I don’t feel the need to add myself to the list.

(Side note: I will be writing an article on this fascinating subject this week!!)
Here is my personal favorite:
I am and always have been captivated by space. Although I know that the first people on Mars will be scientists and very important people, I think I would go up to the Red Planet. I’d go up when I was older, maybe sixty, and that’s how I would want to live out the last years of my life. It sounds alright to me.
