Mars Ice

An article in Science explains that new crater sites on Mars indicate more water on the planet than previously thought:
Thermal models of one site show that millimeters of sublimation occurred during this fading period, indicating clean ice rather than ice in soil pores.
This follows confirmation of large amounts of lunar water.

Water on the Moon and Mars was all the rage at the office here. This makes the goal of visiting Mars permanently much more likely. A settler could now bet his or her life on the prospect of finding water.
