European Space Agency finds ice on Mars
The Mars Express interplanetary station of the European Space Agency has found ice on Mars, a European Space Agency representative told Itar-Tass on Friday. He said the station’s radar system detected the ice from the height of 275 kilometers. The station has been staying in a circum-Martian orbit since December 25, 2003. The ice is concentrated on the Martian South Pole, he said. The Martian icecap is made up of frozen water and carbonic acid gas. Photographs of the Martian surface, which were presented in Darmstadt on Friday, are another proof to water on Mars. The erosion of the Martian landscape could have happened only under the influence of water. Thus, the European Space Agency hopes to find evidence to organic life forms on Mars.
