The quest to find water on Mars continues as researchers report the likely presence of ice sheets on the Red Planet. Data from two orbiting spacecraft revealed ice cliffs at least 100 meters (328 feet) thick, which may provide information about Mars’ past climate. “They might even be a useful source of water for future human exploration of the Red Planet,” Colin Dundas, research geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey, said. ;/It was Dundas who spotted a pale band of blue peeking out from the globe’s rusty complexion in high-resolution photos, taken a few years ago by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The spacecraft takes detailed pictures of the Martian surface suing the High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) shooter.
