    Muahaha I haven't read the article yet but I question how finding ice on mars scores a point against religion.

    Just wait until the sample is analyzed and organic compounds are found...

    Ice on Mars isn't a new discovery though. It's ice caps are probably visible with a powerful telescope.

    I was hoping this meant we could fly up there and have ice for our drinks. Would our penises get even larger with less gravity?

    Then why would NASA send a spacecraft there specifically to dig for ice?

    I still don't see how life on another planet would be harmful to religion. The holy rollers would simply say God put it there and blah blah blah. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to shove it up the asses of every bible thumper. I just don't see this as being the conclusive, um, pole that does it.

    They would send it because they are ridiculous.

    Because their fucking stupid. Remember when they spent 50 million dollars to fix a lens in teh Hubble that was a few microns off? You know why ? Because when they built it on Earth , they didn't factor gravity into their equations , so once it was in orbit several of the lenses and mirrors "sprang free" causing a distorted image. A few microns doesn't sound like much until your point of focus is trillions of miles away.

    I'm just saying that ice on mars has been known about for quite some time.

    My guess is that it's reflection from discarded Martian Windows Vista PCs.

    Personally , I think that there may be some truth to the UFO claims. I highly doubt that we are alone among the hundreds of millions of galaxies that contain hundreds of billions of stars and subsequent solar systems. Plus it'd be pretty ironic that "they" are visiting us yet we think we are the pinnacle even though we can't even get past teh moon. And by we I mean people , not satellites.

    The photo that I saw on TV showed what they said was ice, but it was in a bright, sunny area instead of the shade where there was no ice. I don't understand that, do ya'll? Something fishy on mars too???? I think this whole thing is phony with lots of money going God knows where.

    the project is to dig up soil samples looking for the ingredients for the possibility of life not just ice.

    there could be ice anywhere ,burrrr

    The average recorded temperature on Mars is -63° C (-81° F) with a maximum temperature of 20° C (68° F) and a minimum of -140° C (-220° F).

    I like those frozen mars bars though
