Mars Water Ice Confirmed - 01/24/04 02:55 PM

Mars Express, the European spacecraft orbiting Mars, has detected water ice on the planets South Pole. The discovery confirms the suspicions of NASA who had indicated this possibility with their Mars Odyssey craft in 2002.

It is believed that both poles contain significant quantities of ice, particularly since the Odyssey picked up signals indicating a big hydrogen presence.
