Under the Martian Ice
Posted by Peter Rasmussen on March 21, 2007
The Mars Express mission has discovered a region of water ice on Mars large enough to cover Texas. It’s four kilometres thick in places. Wet it would be able to cover Mars to a depth of 11 metres.
A while ago I wrote a fifty-page science fiction short story about explorers who dig down into a frozen lake just under the dust of Mars. It’s full of adventure with a twist of humour. “Victoria, what are you going to do with the chainsaw?”
