NASA Discovers Water On Mars


NASA announced the discovery of flowing water on Mars.

Well, not exactly…

Not that it matters! Readers of the “Terminal Reset” series are already familiar with the various Martian creatures NASA has been keeping mum about since the late sixties.

Sure – this is SCIENCE FICTION. But, many astute observers have noted that A.E. Williams really knows his stuff when it comes to all things military and space. So, don’t be surprised if, one day very soon, NASA admits it’s not just H2O up there…
