It's not quite as big as the moonlandings, but the NASA news today made every sci-fi fan live on with the dream that there could, potentially, be life on mars.
NASA has published a study saying that they have found evidence of moving water on Mars and that is pretty big news.

Water on Mars
Portions of the Martian surface shot by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter show many channels from 1 meter to 10 meters wide on a scarp in the Hellas impact basin, in this photograph taken January 14, 2011 and released by NASA March 9, 2011. Scientists have found the first evidence that briny water may flow on the surface of Mars during the planet's summer months, a paper published on Monday showed. Researchers found telltale fingerprints of salts that form only in the presence of water in narrow channels cut into cliff walls throughout the planet's equatorial region.
