Water on Mars

While we've known for a while that there is water on Mars, The Orthogonal Galaxy suggested a lot of underground water that astronauts at Camp Mars could tap into.  A recently published article claims that one crater on Mars is believed to host an ice sheet under its surface that would contain as much water as Lake Superior

I continue to enjoy reading about science updates that directly relate to the science fiction of the Galaxy Series.  Sometimes, articles like the one above corroborate my efforts, while others seem to oppose some of the "science" I attempt to use.  Either way, it's always enjoyable to see advances in science.  Finding Great Lake-sized water shelves on Mars could significantly improve prospects for future human exploration and/or colonization.
