    Ice On Mars

    I couldn't find another thread about this, so apologies if its a double thread.

    But they've apparently found ice on Mars, yes *water* ice.

    Pretty cool

    This happened a while back. I'm a bit of a freak about astronomy so this was huge news to me.

    They also found traces of SUPER EARTHS in another solar system or something. Could it possible that there's other humans out there?

    With the vastness of space there is no doubt there are other creatures out there. Then again, many of us Earthlings think we are so important that there couldn't possibly be other life forms in the near limitless universe.

    Yah. you konw what would be really interesting though... if we do eventually meet these aliens and they have the exact same religions!

    I really do hope to meet or see some E.T.s in my lifetime. I know that growing up in the 80s, the thought of actually meeting aliens was pretty ridiculous. But now, with what scientists are finding... it's really starting to get me mega excited about the thought!

    I check the Mars Phoenix site daily (along with the rovers, orbiter and Saturn Cassini websites). Simply fascinating, with awesome photos.

    Re: Ice On Mars

    So glad to see there are other astronomy nuts out there in MC-Land. I'm an astrophysics major myself. I too follow the Phoenix, MER, HiRISE and Cassini projects daily.

    This has been an amazing several years for Mars exploration. Some huge discoveries have been made and it has been so exciting.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Re: Ice On Mars

    I've always had a fascination with space, ever since I was a kid and saw that movie "Space Camp" for the first time. I used to lay the dining room chairs with the back to floor and pretend I was taking off.

    I've never call myself an expert but I have always found astronomy to be very interesting indeed.

    Fixed that for you.

    During my college years I worked as a technician in the physics and astronomy departments. Got to test out the university's telescope quite often but the fun telescope is on Palomar mountain in San Diego County.
