Young Mars Crater Contains Water Ice, Photo Shows




A fresh crater on Mars has revealed a hidden cache of frozen water in some of the latest photos from a powerful NASA spacecraft. A recent false color image from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter clearly shows a patch of Mars water ice at the bottom of a 20-foot (6-meter) wide crater in the Martian surface. The photo came from the orbiter's high-resolution HiRISE camera. The young crater is in the northern hemisphere of Mars. Scientists suspect it formed only recently, sometime between April 2004 and January of this year, said Nathan Bridges, a HiRISE science team member at the University of Arizona.


Don't slip on the ice

Should not come as a surprise any longer, I think we are seeing that trapped water is quite common on the Martian surface and the previous views of Mars as a vast desolate wasteland are quickly disappearing.
