Is there ice on Mars?
It seems that, yes, there is.
The European Space Agency has released a photo of what they say is water ice in an unnamed crater in Vastitas Borealis near the pole of Mars. (I love Martian names … Vastitas Borealis … rather like my first seminary).
Perhaps one should inaugurate a new cocktail in honor of this Martian Water…. L’Esprit de Mars!
