It is doubtful that Schiaparelli saw much detail through his telescope but he was right; there are canali on Mars (Schiaparelli was misquoted) but it was probably a lucky guess on his part. Canali means channels in English not canals. Channels do not have to have water in them. Don Ledger Listen to 'Strange Days...
