While scientists already knew that about a third of the surface of Mars contains shallow ground ice and that its poles harbor major ice deposits, the
research published on Thursday described thick underground ice sheets exposed along slopes up to 100 metres tall at the planet’s middle
The deposits were found at seven geological formations called scarps, with slopes up to 55 degrees, in the southern hemisphere and one in the northern
hemisphere. “You can go out with a bucket and shovel and just collect as much water as you need."
