Salt Deposits on Mars Might Be the Right Place to Search for Life

Researchers announced today that they have discovered large salt deposits on the surface of Mars. These deposits point to places where large quantities of water existed on the surface of the Red Planet, perhaps for millions of years. And this might be some of the best places to go looking for evidence of life, past and present.

Last time around, salt deposits were supposed to be evidence that life COULDN'T have existed on Mars. Go figure.
