TUCSON, Ariz. -- Laboratory tests aboard NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander have identified water in a soil sample. The lander's robotic arm delivered the sample Wednesday to an instrument that identifies vapors produced by the heating of samples.

"We have water," said William Boynton of the University of Arizona, lead scientist for the Thermal and Evolved-Gas Analyzer, or TEGA. "We've seen evidence for this water ice before in observations by the Mars Odyssey orbiter and in disappearing chunks observed by Phoenix last month, but this is the first time Martian water has been touched and tasted."

With enticing results so far and the spacecraft in good shape, NASA also announced operational funding for the mission will extend through Sept. 30. The original prime mission of three months ends in late August. The mission extension adds five weeks to the 90 days of the prime mission.

taking bets on how long till terraforming?

    the ice caps were never confirmed as water, I think they're mostly CO2 ice or some shit like that.

    Man I've been hearing about this all day on NPR, WAM.

    But yes, this is very cool. And they found it pretty quickly, too, meaning there might be a lot of it up there.

    I think we should concentrate on fixing our planet for now.

    From a logical standpoint, it just seems like that might be a little easier

    It's a conspiracy to distract us from the real discoveries on mars, that the giant face and pyramids were faked by moon Nazis!
