    Mars rover finds key evidence for lake at landing site
    Billions of years ago, a lake once filled the 96-mile-wide crater being explored by NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity, bolstering evidence that the planet most like Earth in the solar system was suitable for microbial life, scientists said on Monday....
