Ice! Ice! Baby.

Water ice has very probably been found by the Mars Phoenix Lander. The lander dug a hole just a few inches deep and revealed chunks that sublimed(changed directly from a gas to a liquid)over the course of 4 Martian days. Sand don't play that game. NASA cannot conclusively say that it's H2O until they get some of it into the lander's on board analyzer, but the visual evidence alone strongly indicates that the ice is, indeed, water.

This is totally cool!!!
