Mars, Water, Nasa

When NASA first revealed that they would be making a big announcement on Monday, we were sure it was going to be that Beyoncé is actually an alien princess sent down from Mars to test how long it would take her to assimilate into our culture. Now that she's basically our queen, they would have to send her back, as the experiment was over. And then we'd have to lock her away in a bunker to keep her from leaving and it was going to be a big ol' mess.

Turns out, we were wrong. NASA actually had even cooler news, in our scientific opinion. And we're pretty good at science, just so you know. We got a "Passed" in high school biology.

Anyway, NASA found evidence of water on mars! And that means that the red planet could probably support life and that means that the events of Independence Day are probably right around the corner. Bring us Jeff Goldblum!

"It took multiple spacecraft over several years to solve this mystery, and now we know there is liquid water on the surface of this cold, desert planet," Michael Meyer, lead scientist for NASA's Mars Exploration Program said in a statement. "It seems that the more we study Mars, the more we learn how life could be supported and where there are resources to support life in the future."

But before all these exciting developments, NASA kept us dangling in anticipation over the weekend, wondering what the big announcement was. Basically, people were bummed to find out that their predictions didn't come true. They wanted aliens, damn it!

We're going to go ahead and agree with the edit-tweets thing. C'mon, Twitter! Get your s--t together!
