Ice Crater on Mars
Image Details
Poster MarioCP Offline
Posted 21/12/18 12:14 PM
Description
The European Space Agency published this photo of a ice-filled crater (named after Korolev, the russian engineer responsible for Sputnik)

According to Sky News (where I got the picture from) the crater is 82 kms wide and about 2km deep. It's a lot of ice.

And since that is basically water that escaped (due to becoming solid) evaporation during Mars' athmosphere decay, maybe there's a lot more, in solid or liquid condition, underground.

And if Mars indeed holds vast amounts of water, there can either: a) be life there; b) be the conditions to facilitate the settlement of humans if/when we ever decide to venture that far

What a find. I bet it is high on the list of future investigations. To have such a big source to test is a definite plus. Is it potable? Could it be purified? What is stuck inside it?

Truly an amazing picture Mario but it does look more like a saucer of milk the only thing missing is a couple of moggies lapping away at it grin2

Feliz Natal to you and your family and thanks for all your postings this year always a breath of fresh air thumbs.

Can't see a Morgan anywhere in the picture. Maybe it's got something to do with George Bush.
