That looks awfully like a 1/2 pint beer glass that some pubs use. Ergo, if there was water and a few hops etc., there may once even have been pubs on Mars too.

Instead of all those expensive probes drilling into Martian soil, I reckon they should just film the Martian surface with high-resolution cameras from a satellite. Then do a thorough search of the photos for any olde pub signs: (eg) The George & Dragon; Horse & Carriage; The Swan etc. :ok:

Looks like pretty clear water to me, not even a hint of yellow in it (nothing Photoshop couldn't remove) anyway. I reckon the original photo was taken aboard the ISS quite recently. :ok:

What is truly amazing is that they've found water, and it's not in the Polar regions!!!:ooh:

Argonautical, please post a new photo of a 1/2 pint glass of water with ice cubes innit sitting on a packet of frosty mints just for Monsieur Buster Hyman's pleasure. Could we please also have a reddish tinge to the background as well...?! :ok:

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!

Why the fixation with water? Life could evolve and have water be poisonous to it. To think life NEEDS water is so limiting.

Aside from the obvious convenience for human inhabitants, water in some abundance means a) instant fuel station for inter-planetary, etc travel (just add solar and stir) b) H2O is also very handy for terraforming, meaning the value of the real estate may be upgraded considerably. Augurs well for rising future tax collections from the residents.

Rubbish arcniz, you can't use water for fuel. The oil companies and the Google intellectuals who think they understand the 2nd Law keep saying so, so it must be true.
:p

Well, of course not on EARTH, silly.

We're talking here about Mars and them plaices beyond where there are no pre-existing filling stations at which to obtain one's preferred fuel from a proper petroleum supply company.

Look closly and you'll see that there is a second mars that has been hidden from our view as it is on the dark side!

And there is water on that too !

What name will they give this new body?

Looks like it is in a tight pruner orbit..

So they went all that way and there's only one glass of water there?

Pah! Complete waste of money

I don't believe that you'd get any settlers (or even transients) volunteering to relocate to Mars based on only water. There'd have to be at least "Mmmm - beer!":- http://i277.photobucket.com/albums/kk43/spaceball1one/beer_girls_large.jpg
(although based on US beers, maybe they could make do with water . . . ).
