    After analysing again the data sent by the SPICAM spectrometer on board ESA's Mars Express, the Martian atmosphere turned to be water vapour-over-saturated. This surprising discovery, with major implications for the understanding of the Martian water cycle as well as for the evolution of its atmosphere, was announced in an article of the September 29th 2011 issue of Science.
