Ancient new form of Ice on Mars?

  1. May 28, 2008 #1
    The very recent Phoenix landed on Mars to examine soil and scrap ice etc. Just a prelude to a more sophisticated rover pending. But what if Mar's ice is a billion + yrs old, and hard as marble, perhaps? A new form of ice, not seen, nor conceived yet, on earth? Perhaps drilling; but not a core - too difficult perhaps. Rather perhaps just a fine drill; but large enough for a fiber optic probe to magnify and observe the wall of such cylindrical space, might be one possibility to the study of a new form of that exotic structure called ice.

    could be possible just need to wait for the technology to allow these types of testing to be conducted.
