A space robot is drilling on Mars. Click here to see the news story. It will process the material it brings to the surface with a view to ascertaining if there was ever life on Mars, or if the planet is capable of sustaining life. That reminds me of the song 'Life on Mars', sung by David Bowie, with whom I share a birthday: January 8th.

For the last few days, workmen have been drilling beside a very low dip in the road close to where I live. It's all hills and dips in this area. With heavy rain yesterday, the problem worsened and the lower portion of road sank beneath two feet of water, spreading the freshly dug soil across the surface in the form of mud.
Slice of moon rock is displayed at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. When man first walked on the moon, it shattered everyone's belief that such a thing could be possible. The stars in the sky are real planets. Now, with a robot landing on Mars, we await the findings of Mars dust with baited breath.
The Earth isn't flat as our ancestors once believed. Is there life on Mars?
