Yes, because the ground is very cold, it would contribute to the ice not "melting" very much.

According to the "weather station" on Curiosity the ground temperature is higher than the air temperature.


You have already agreed the ice would not melt that much, so why are we still going on about this?

"Not much" after millions or even just thousands of years would make it disappear, unless we are talking about a huge volume of ice, for which I see no signs.

I confess I mixed things with that post.

Edited to add that the confusion was not limited to that post.

That shows I shouldn't post when I am too tired.


edit on 11/9/2018 by ArMaP because: see above.

I just found it strange because I had seen a lot of navcam images and never saw Mount Sharp that white. Could be ice.

Does that mean the in all other photos you don't think it has ice?

IF yes, where did the ice came from?


Wasn't there a press release a while back about ice at a peak on the crater rim?

I don't remember seeing any.

Funny how the very knowlegeable and sharp-eyed people at the Unmanned Spaceflight Forum hadn't noticed any ice or glaciers on Mt Sharp...

If there were any such thing there, they'd be tripping over themselves discussing it, and requesting Curiosity and MRO teams to study it further.

You can't be the only one to have noticed ice or a glacier on Mt Sharp, right?
