The results suggest that the outer planets of the system might still harbour substantial amounts of water. We see broad East-West stripes, with a few patches of cooler temperatures in the Rocky Mountains, and something unusual going on in coastal California and Oregon.
Fresh water organisms sometimes aren’t able to survive with the high acidity of the water, which may lead to extinction. NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson, who holds the record for maximum time spent in space by any American astronaut, is set to return to Earth on Saturday, completing a 288-day mission at the International Space Station.
