Phoenix Finds Ice!

Very cool!



These images were acquired by NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander's Surface Stereo Imager on the 21st and 25th days of the mission, or Sols 20 and 24 (June 15 and 18, 2008).

These images show sublimation of ice in the trench informally called "Dodo-Goldilocks" over the course of four days.

In the lower left corner, lumps disappear, similar to the process of evaporation.

The Phoenix Mission is led by the University of Arizona, Tucson, on behalf of NASA. Project management of the mission is by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. Spacecraft development is by Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Denver.

Just another reason Allisnow is better than AOL. AOL hid the discovery info behind a teasing link next to the picture. I didn't have time to click. But here I find out exactly what NASA discovered without any effort at all. =) Thanks!
Yay! I'm pleased to be of service :D

*thinks perhaps she needs an 'allisnow: better than aol' icon ;)
