Mars ice ‘a relic of a more humid climate’

Scientists believe ice on mars is left over from a “more humid climate” that may have existed as soon as a few thousand years ago. (Reuters) No, the Reuters column didn’t go into what that climate would have looked like (there probably weren’t jungles, but there may have been lakes, rivers).

However, Pound360 thought it was cool that, instead of wondering whether or not there’s water on mars -- “there is no dispute that water exists on the surface” -- our imaginations are all focused on where it came from and what a wet Mars might have looked like.

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
