Thank you for clearing that up mate, i wish they would use colour imaging. Especially in this day of age.

Why is it so important that we see ice that is melted? We know ice melts at 1 Celcius. We know there is ice. So wherever the ice gets over 0 Celcius there will be water.

Nice picture, but instead of trying to focus on possible water, has anyone else noticed the rock formations in the foreground? Looks like wind-eroded shale to me, and if it is (correct me if I'm wrong) isn't that indicative of silt deposits (indicating the pre-existence of water in an earlier time?) Or if it's oil shale which tells of degraded plant/animal proteins?

Looks interesting, I must agree that its not the same colour as the surrounding area. Looks like a tidal pool that has dried out, there are other areas that look as if they are arid water tracts.
Theres gotta be water there somewhere,(In bodies) -only if small.

Well there isn't really a need for it since it provides no scientific value. Also, I believe black and white images are used on purpose. A B&W image is going to be smaller in file size (256 shades of grey versus a 24bit color image with 4.2 billion colors), so it won't take as long to transmit all the way back to Earth.

However, with that said. The next mars rover, which is called, the Mars Science Laboratory will be able to take true colour images.

I collected these links from various places over the last few years and i would like to know if looks as much like water to you as it does to me. All pictures are directly linked to the Malin space science site so they are about as 'original' as they will likely be seen.

Enjoy!
