Newly-Discovered Deposit of Water Ice on Mars is Roughly the Size of Lake Superior



Future astronauts might have all the water they need already waiting for them on Mars. That’s because NASA has announced the discovery of a massive body of underground ice on the planet which they say is roughly the size of Lake Superior, 2,900 cubic miles

NASA has completed more than 600 passes over “The Utopia” deposit region, which they say is bigger than the state of New Mexico, with a diameter of about 2,050 miles and running as deep as 560 feet. About 50 to 85 percent of the area is believed to be water ice, mixed in with dust and rock particles.

Though water cannot exist on the surface of Mars today, the underground ice is protected by a shield of soil. And while it only makes up a fraction of the estimated amount of underground ice on the planet, it’s believed The Utopia deposit is close enough to the surface that it could be used as a resource by astronauts who land in the area.
