i am very very excited. Mars Express, the orbiter recently arrived at Mars and launched by the European Space Agency, has confirmed the presence of water ice on Mars’ southern polar cap. The chemical signatures have been detected, and well, this is the first actually confirmed finding of water on Mars. We’ve long suspected it is there… and evidence suggests that Mars is abundant in water, though it is all frozen beneath the surface. The notion has even been postulated that Mars is experiencing its own ice age… which could mean that one day, Mars will have liquid water again. There is evidence of global warming already occurring on Mars. (Venus too.) Kinda makes one wonder if mankind is really causing global warming here on Earth, or if it is a purely natural event.
