yIQ'a' MARS tIQ?

Steven Boozer (

chaq MARS yuQDaq bIQ tu'lu' 'e' toblaw' tera'ngan nejwI':

     A patch of Martian soil analyzed by NASA's rover Spirit is so rich
   in silica that it may provide some of the strongest evidence yet that
   ancient Mars was much wetter than it is now. The processes that could
   have produced such a concentrated deposit of silica require the
   presence of water. . . .
     "You could hear people gasp in astonishment," said Steve Squyres
   of Cornell University, Ithaca, N.Y., principal investigator for the
   Mars rover's science instruments. "This is a remarkable discovery.
   And the fact that we found something this new and different after
   nearly 1,200 days on Mars makes it even more remarkable. It makes
   you wonder what else is still out there."
