Curiosity's onboard weather station, which is called the Remote Environment Monitoring Station(REMS), has measured air temperatures as high as 43 degrees Fahrenheit (6 degrees Celsius) in the afternoon. And temperatures have climbed above freezing during more than half of the Martian days, or sols, since REMS was turned on, scientists said.
These measurements are a bit unexpected, since it's still late winter at Gale Crater, the spot 4.5 degrees south of the Martian equator where Curiosity touched down on Aug. 5.


"If this warm trend carries on into summer, we might even be able to foresee temperatures in the 20s [Celsius], and that would be really exciting from a habitability point of view," Gómez said. "In the daytimes, we could see temperatures high enough for liquid water on a regular basis. But it’s too soon to tell whether that will happen or whether these warm temperatures are just a blip.”

Interesting.

I knew the highest temperature ever recorded on Mars was like 82, but I didn't know how regularly temperatures above freezing actually happened.

the most suprising thing they found on Mars was these unidentified boobs - sort of flat and inverted in the nipple area- might be my ex

You know, call me crazy, but I really do not believe we have a remote control car on Mars. I cant help but wonder how you can remote control something that far away, yet I cant get cell phone service in Walmart. Its just one of those thing I have a hard time believing. I dont know why or what the benefit the government or NASA would gain from lying about it, I just cant believe it.

you don't think nasa's government-funded multi-million dollar cutting-edge tech signals could possibly be stronger than verizon's cell tower signals sent to your phone for 40 bucks a month?
