Walt is looking for oil. heâ€™s been gone for six or seven months. Occasionally he has posted from his travel while on the road. (Personally, donâ€™t know what his problem is, I found some Olive Oil in aisle 5 the last time I went to the Grocery store, but heâ€™s from Texas, so he might have to make it harder just to prove his manhood. Apparently everything is difficult bigger in Texas.
Anyway, he has beamed some pics back to us, as his travels have brought him to all sorts of, well, out of this world places.
Well, as it turns out, in his epic search for oil, he accidentally not only discovered water on Mars:
Images Suggest Water Once Covered Mars
WASHINGTON (July 16) – Minerals in the soil of Mars show it was covered once by lakes, rivers and other bodies of water that could have supported life, U.S. researchers reported on Wednesday.
Last month the Mars Phoenix Lander found ice on the surface of the planet, but it is frozen hard and covered by red dust. Writing in the journal Nature, a team of scientists shows that the ice is left over from warmer, wetter times.
“This is really exciting because we’re finding dozens of sites where future missions can land to understand if Mars was ever habitable and if so, to look for signs of past life,” said John Mustard of Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, who worked on the study.

Then, well, he went just a bit further out and located an entire (mini) planet:
Dwarf Planet Near Pluto Gets a Name
WASHINGTON (July 20) – A dwarf planet orbiting beyond Neptune has been designated the third plutoid in the solar system and given the name Makemake, the International Astronomical Union said on Saturday.
The red methane-covered dwarf planet formerly known as 2005 FY9 or “Easterbunny” is named after a Polynesian creator of humanity and god of fertility.
I want to assure everyone that these are actual images, un-redoctored in any way shape or form.
Meanwhile the search for Walt continues.
