Images from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter appear to reveal evidence of liquid water running downhill during the Martian summer. But a device on the orbiter called CRISM, built by scientists at Johns Hopkins' Applied Physics Lab, scanned the stains and found no sign of water. A report in the journal Science Thursday said the MRO team's best guess is that the stains, which lengthen and darken in summer and vanish in winter, are caused by a syrupy brine that dries quickly on the surface.

A 22-year-old man was rescued from the Patapsco River in cardiac arrest Sunday afternoon, according to Howard County fire officials. Firefighters and swift-water rescue teams from both Howard and Carroll counties responded to a 911 call at 12:30 p.m. for a person who had been swept downstream near Henryton Road in Marriottsville, said Firefighter Adam Nolder, a spokesman for the Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services. Firefighters were directed down a path that leads to the Patapsco River, where they found the man partially submerged in slow-moving water.

Hundreds of residents and businesses in a 73-acre swath of North Baltimore, including the Village of Cross Keys, were without water most of the day after a main break on Falls Road north of Cold Spring Lane, a city public works spokesman said. The 80-year-old, 10-inch water main ruptured about 10 a.m. in the 4700 block of Falls Road, DPW spokesman Kurt Kocher said. DPW provided bottled water to a ManorCare facility that houses 180 residents, he said. In addition, the 388 homes in the Village of Cross Keys, as well as its 150-bed hotel and many homes in neighborhoods on Falls Road between Cold Spring Lane and Northern Parkway, were affected.

We are living in an historic era ("Re-elected," Nov. 7). We have read about the fall of other once great civilizations like the Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians. Now, we actually get to live it. We will see America, a once great country, become a government-controlled, third world socialist state. No shots will be fired, no army will invade. It will all happen from within. Unemployment, health care costs, and entitlement living will all increase. Civil unrest, demonstrations, and riots will be widespread.

A broken water main in Pigtown Sunday evening caused water to be shut off to about 200 homes, a school and several businesses all day Monday while the city worked to fix the pipe, according to the Department of Public Works. "Barring any unforeseen underground problems," water was expected to be restored overnight Monday, Public Works spokesman Jeffrey Raymond said in a statement. The 20-inch pipe in the 1200 block of Washington Blvd. ruptured around 5:30 p.m. Sunday, flooding the basements of about 10 homes and causing police to evacuate 16 residents, Raymond said.

HAS GEOLOGY ever been more inspiring? Suddenly, a handful of rocks can fire the imagination. It helps, of course, that the rocks in question come from a crater on Mars. Maybe you missed the news, but in an article published Friday, government scientists say rocks examined by NASA's Mars rovers are sedimentary. That means they accumulated layer by layer in water. That's right, water. Good old two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. The rocks prove beyond a doubt that the red planet used to have water like Earth has water -- and not just the frozen stuff, but in liquid form, too. The authors aren't certain how the water got there, but they suspect it was present hundreds of thousands of years ago. It might have covered tens of thousands of square miles.

Water had been restored to all Baltimore County residents by Thursday afternoon after a power outage to a pumping station interrupted service Wednesday, according to city and county officials. Residents and businesses whose running water was restored overnight had been urged to conserve water earlier Thursday. Most of the customers from Lake Avenue in Baltimore to Sparks who were affected by Wednesday's outage, caused by an electrical fire in the power lines leading to the Hillen Road pumping station, should have had some running water this morning, according to Baltimore's Department of Public Works.
