Ice

This Might Be The Day

Emily is not 100% sure, but you can tell that she really thinks the Phoenix science team is about to announce the (expected) discovery of ice on Mars.

In this animation, produced from raw images, bright stuff seems to disappear. I won’t say that this proves the stuff is ice, because I’m not a member of the science team and I don’t have access to the real, calibrated data. But you can bet I’ve got my ears perked up to see what the science team has to say about this little disappearing act!

Oh yeah – it’s lookin’ like, and now quackin’ like a duck.

Addendum: More on Phoenix and the discovery of ice on Mars here.

Update: We’ve found water ice. Here’s the confirmation.
