Scientists at NASA believe they’ve finally discovered ice on Mars. Recently, the Phoenix Mars Lander started collecting soil samples from the surface of the planet. After a few backhoe scoops, a white, glistening material was revealed. Scientists couldn’t figure out if it was ice or not but four days after it was uncovered, it vanished. The theory? It’s ice and it’s evaporating after being exposed.
What does this mean for us? It means Mars could, at some point in time, become a place for us to live. It also leaves us fucked if there was some monster living in a dormant state of rest underneath the ice. We’ll have to kick back and watch I suppose.
