thirsty anyone?

Water ice in crater at Martian north pole

The photo is color enhanced, but cool nonetheless.

From the European Space Agency:
28 July 2005
"These images, taken by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on board ESA’s Mars Express spacecraft, show a patch of water ice sitting on the floor of an unnamed crater near the Martian north pole... The circular patch of bright material located at the centre of the crater is residual water ice."

Too bad it isn't oil. Cheney would be wetting his pants.
