"Conditions at Meridiani may have been habitable"

In a special issue, the magazine Science notes the conclusion from a Cornell University-led Mars rover science team: “Liquid water was once present intermittently at the martian surface at Meridiani, and at times it saturated the subsurface. Because liquid water is a key prerequisite for life, we infer that conditions at Meridiani may have been habitable for some period of time in martian history.”

Is that cool, or what?

And by the way, I guess we don’t capitalize “terrestrial” or “lunar,” but doesn’t “martian” look a little funny with a lower-case “m”?
