Water-Ice on Mars

This is a photograph taken by the Phoenix Mars Lander in October. The white patch near the center of the picture appears to be water-ice.

The discovery of water-ice on Mars is A Big Deal. It makes the existence or prior existence of life there a near-certainty.

    This photo was obviously taken during the day. The real question is: "Is there any night life on Mars." And sure, there"s water, but is there bourbon.
