I remember my fourth grade teacher telling me that there were polar ice caps on mars, just like earth. He even showed the class radio telescope blow up image things that depicted what used to be rivers etc. Did they really spend that much money just to find out what I was told when I was 10 years old??? C'mon, I want something a little better than frozen water. Why are they calling it frozen water anyway, is 'ice' too plain or too technical a term to be thrown around willy nilly?

well water would be a possibility that there is life on mars.They said dried up rivers but they dont no if asteroids done that.But anyway water has never been found on the south pole up until today

The ice caps on other planets contain not just frozen water but frozen CO2, nitrogen and other gases.

if our ice caps melt we can just bring some back from mars. although it will probably melt on earth anyway.

*nods* I'm aware of that, but did they really have to try and be technical? Are they covering up for a lack of finding anything else besides a bit of red dirt? I'd like to know if there is any moisture within the soil that covers the planets surface, perhaps any word of nutrients. But all they tell us is something I heard almost 13 years ago?

Everything freezes in space, there is no atmosphere. Also, elpaw is a wise old sage if ever there was one, good luck to proving him wrong

The reason why America spends so much on space exploration to mars is because it is the 'new America' in many respects. However can colonise it first is in for $$$. The fact that there is ice there means humans ability to live there will become much easier and quicker. Its a very important discovery. It means they dont have to lugg 10,000 bottles of Evian across space.

I'm guessing that none of you people were in the Boy Scouts. It is possible to supply one human being with enough water each day from 3 plants. This also allows for watering the plant to keep it alive. Lugging water would be no problem at all, unless a few contracts were signed under the table. Do you really think they will colonise the place. What about the moon?

The moon will be done first. Its lower gravity means its more economical to launch ships. Yes, Mars will be colonized one day. By the lloks of things it will have valuable resources there.

I wasnt just refering to drinking water for humans. That covers a very small amount of what would be needed to sustain human existence.

I'd rather he was spending money on peaceful, collaborative efforts to explore the universe than on invading other countries... such exploration can only unite the world to one common goal, so IMO it's money well spent.

I'll try to, but I doubt I'd be able to be here for more than about 20 minutes once or twice a week. Pretty soon I'll be sliding down onto the second page of the members list, never to be remembered for anything worthwhile at all. Though I've got a rather decent contribution in the Harry Potter thread.

I can just see the poor bugger sulking right now that there aren't any little hoodlums to launch an intergalatic war against.
