Water on Mars

NASA reports that the Phoenix Mars Lander has officially found water on Mars. The sample, called “Wicked Witch”, “will continue to be analyzed over the course of the coming weeks as data trickles in.” Click here for first picture in gallery (panorama of Martian landscape).

The team has also decided to extend the mission to the end of the fiscal year to September 30, to a full 126 martian Sols (was scheduled for 90 sols initially) at the cost of another $2 million.
