Incredible Picture – Martian Ice Found!

Water on Mars is still an ongoing subject of deep interest, we have proof of existence of plenty of water ice adorning the Red Planet – and it looks astonishing, as new photos from the European Space Agency’s Mars Express prove.

The Mars orbiter has captured a surprising view of a Korolev crater, an 81.4-kilometre (50.6-mile) diameter. Korolev crater is located just south of the Olympia Undae dunes.

Korolev crater was named for Soviet rocket engineer Sergei Korolev. ESA has confirmed that sitting in the Korolev crater is, in fact, a thick block of water ice. Source: Physics/Astronomy
