and we have the molecule to prove it.

And that molecule is...?

We've been seeing geologic (uh, aereologic?) formations telling us there was flowing water for some time now. How impressive is this now? (I haven't heard) Is the molecule H2O?

I guess that the water is a bit shallow for most boats.

Water must be good news but ...
