Ice deposits discovered on Mars
SCIENTISTS have found what they say are huge ice sheets stretching across Mars, a development that could be a “game-changer” in our mission to live there. The research, using images from a NASA spacecraft currently orbiting the Red Planet, found eight sites that appear to have huge ice deposits on steep slopes. The scientists claim that the ice could be an easily accessible source of water for the explorers who hope to go and live there. The research describes something entirely new: thick underground sheets that are exposed along large slopes that rise as much as 100 metres up from the planet.
