Ice on Mars, confirmed

June 20, 2008

Yesterday, via Hahlo on my iPhone, I saw @MarsPhoenix twitter this:

“Are you ready to celebrate? Well, get ready: We have ICE!!!!! Yes, ICE, *WATER ICE* on Mars! w00t!!! Best day ever!!”

I was happy that they’ve been able to confirm what they thought all along and accomplish what the main purpose of the mission was.  They should definitely figure out a way to bring some of it back here though.

Imagine the drinks?  Mars on the rocks?  Martian lemonade?  What else?
