Fantasy is my #1; I will give almost anything a chance if it has strong fantasy elements. Post apocalyptic, superhero, alternate history, science fantasy, some supernatural, romance, and a few fandoms (especially Game of Thrones) are also likely to catch my eye.
NASA Confirms Evidence That Liquid Water Flows on Today’s Mars

“Our quest on Mars has been to ‘follow the water,’ in our search for life in the universe, and now we have convincing science that validates what we’ve long suspected,” said John Grunsfeld, astronaut and associate administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. “This is a significant development, as it appears to confirm that water -- albeit briny -- is flowing today on the surface of Mars.”

Are any other science nerds around Iwaku super hyped about this like I am? :D

I'm not surprised at the discovery, but am surprised at the official announcement. Great news, regardless!

The news doesn't surprise me in the slightest since they already discovered bacterial life on Mars several years ago.

However it is thrilling to hear it officially announced! :D

Now all we need to do is discover that cache of Prothean Tech hidden on Mars and we'll be well on our way to joining the Galactic community!
What will really happen is that we will start to colonize Mars, have a bunch of mining facilities dig for shit and then discover an ancient martian ruin that will break open and unleash a ghost gas of dead martians that slowly start to take over the miners and their families and turn them into a pack of crazed possessed marauders that are almost like zombies, only more tribal and less braindead.

Anybody that gets that reference, I love long tiem.

I'm super excited. I hope the evidence proves true :D

On the folks mentioning bacteria, we did not find bacteria on Mars but possible fossilized bacteria from a few martian meteorites here on Earth. More recently, Curiosity observed possible evidence of bacteria on Mars.
Just possibilities and nothing concrete, but I'm staying hopeful. Especially if there is liquid water :D

Just keep upgrading the Plasma Cutter and you're neigh immortal. There's literally no reason to use anything else.
