Water? Who needs water?

On May 25th, 2008, NASA's Phoenix spacecraft landed in the northern polar region of Mars to begin three months of examining a site chosen for its likelihood of having frozen water within reach of the lander's robotic arm. The Phoenix's mission objectives are to study the history of water below the planet's surface and to determine if the Martian arctic soil could support life.

In response to the news of the discovery of water on Mars and the possibility of colonization on Mars, famed Science Fiction writer Ray Bradbury said:

"It's nice to know that water's there, because we're going to need water."

Now it seems to me that they've got it all mixed-up. They didn't need to go and spend $325 million dollars to find out that mars needs water. Everybody knows...Mars Needs Cattle.
