Well if any of you would have clicked on that link that I posted earlier you could have an explaination for what appears to be a lake, but isn't.

The other side of the pole contains a much larger area known as 'the Cryptic Region,' which is made up of seasonal ice in the winter but has low albedo, or reflectivity.


what I want to know is does anyone ever pay attention to their own links?

The scientist you quoted above clearly states that it is ICE... not only that but he differentiates it between the mostly CO2 ice at the North Pole... ESA Mars Express has shown the south pole to be 90% WATER ICE

The scientist you quoted also PLAINLY STATES that it is SEASONAL ICE IN THE WINTER... ergo it is NOT ICE IN THE SUMMER ergo it is WATER

If you are going to point to a scientific statement please at least read what it says..

But hey Thanks for providing scientific evidence of water on Mars

Originally posted by ArMaPmost of those other people have something to sell based on their speculation.

Oh yes quite right there ArMap... Can I interest you in a little plot of beach front? It doesn't come with the mineral rights, but would be a great place for a vacation home.. Some great prices if you buy now before the rush...

We KNOW from ESA Mars Express that the Polar Cap contains LOTS of water ice.. as much as 90% with latest SCIENTIFIC figures

We KNOW that the temperatures in Summer can reach as high as 81 F, recorded SCIENTIFICALLY by the Rovers...

+81 F and ICE = WATER

No problem Elementary SCIENCE grade school stuff

I understand using spectrometry techniques that the "ice" can be defined.

Then perhaps you will understand THIS

Water ice in crater at Martian north pole

Water at Martian South Pole
17 March 2004
Thanks to ESA’s Mars Express, we now know that Mars has vast fields of perennial water ice, stretching out from the south pole of the Red Planet.

So it would seem that the Scientists in the European Space Agency agree with Mike
And that image above IS a frozen lake with snow on the ridges..

You have looked at a photo wishing to see proof of Martian existence and found it.

The colour variations are usual corrections that you get. The white balance on the landers would have been configured based on earth-light. Pictures transmitted to Earth are always corrected one way or another...

Quite true... NASA "corrects" to the red side... and the blue sky crowd "corrects" to the blue side... both sides show images where the white rover parts are reddish or bluish.... yet if you look at the other galleries you see a more correct image. Now I will show you an image from Mars in true color

HOWEVER it is the color it would look like IF it had the same level of light as Earth

This image is from NASA...
Spirit Sol 859

The rock in the foreground is basalt, variety scoria... It is a blueish black... so with very little adjustment to the original image.... (no these are not the ones generally released to the press but they are publicly available)

This is a piece of the same scora - basalt on Earth

No with the colors closely matched you can suddenly see the sand of Mars looks a lot like most of the same type of terrain in the western USA. The sky is a bluish tint, that is greyish due to dust.... The atmosphere is not dense enough to appear blue from Earth, but it is blue from the surface.

Mars has a blue atmosphere?

Here is a rover sunset Blue dusty sky small sun... again a NASA image...

Here is another shot... This one is from Pathfinder...

You just simply have to do a little research...

Wanna have a ski ride on the North Pole of Mars? There's plenty of snow there!! Have a look...

Your enthusiasm is commendable mike, but really Snow=water=HIGHER PROBABILITY OF LIFE!!. Critical thinking!

Agreed MrPenny!!
'Higher probability of life' it is!


P.S. Can't we adress you as 'Pen' or something as short??

Well NASA Scientist seem to agree about that higher possibility..

They are quite ecstatic actually...

And while no signs of biological activity are likely to be uncovered by the current mission, scientists are ecstatic that they now know exactly where to look for past life on Mars..."
