Mars lander discovers ice, scientists say

Mars lander discovers ice, scientists say:

This contrast-enhanced image provided Saturday, May 31, 2008, by NASA was acquired at the Phoenix landing site by Phoenix's Robotic Arm Camera, and shows the underside of the lander. Descent thrusters on the bottom of the lander are visible at the top of the image. As seen in the top center, the exhaust from the descent engine has blown soil off to reveal either rock or ice, which has not yet been determined."
