Salty Water On Mars

There is some indication that salty water may flow down slopes on Mars during warmer times.  Aquafirs might even exist today.

Such places would be obvious early targets in the search for life, but some scientists caution against going to them with rovers for fear of contaminating them with Earth microbes.  It's an interesting problem that will need to be addressed soon.
