HEADLINES: Phoenix probes Mars ice hole

The NASA brain trust has reported the much anticipated discovery of solid H20 (that's water ice for those of you in Missouri) on Mars.
"It must be ice," said the Phoenix Lander's lead investigator, Peter Smith. "These little clumps completely disappearing over the course of a few days, that is perfect evidence that it's ice."
According to the WIRED report (see above link), the discovery of solid H20 was a primary goal of the Phoenix mission.

Ecstatic mission directors now turn their attention to the secondary mission goal -- the search for Klingons hanging out near the ice hole.

(Hey guys, the best jokes never get old.)

  1. I couldnt give a shit less about Mars, but the title of this post is epic in its stellar word smithery. Hats off, kudos, and well done.
