Quote:Water Ice on Pluto: Regions with exposed water ice are highlighted in blue in this composite image from New Horizons' Ralph instrument, combining visible imagery from the Multispectral Visible Imaging Camera (MVIC) with infrared spectroscopy from the Linear Etalon Imaging Spectral Array (LEISA). The strongest signatures of water ice occur along Virgil Fossa, just west of Elliot crater on the left side of the inset image, and also in Viking Terra near the top of the frame. A major outcrop also occurs in Baré Montes towards the right of the image, along with numerous much smaller outcrops, mostly associated with impact craters and valleys between mountains. The scene is approximately 280 miles (450 kilometers) across. Note that all surface feature names are informal.

Quote:In a second significant finding, New Horizons has detected numerous small, exposed regions of water ice on Pluto. The discovery was made from data collected by the Ralph spectral composition mapper on New Horizons.

Well I guess there is water everywhere now. There's water on mars, Pluto, earth. Qt's pantsu. Probably on Neptune, Jupiter and Saturn too since they're made out of a lot of helium and water is, you know. Heavier than that.

But in all honesty this does kinda support the theory of water coming to earth via asteroids.

Well, we knew there was water on Mars for a really long time. The important discovery is that there's liquid, flowing water in Mars.

In reality, all he's doing is pushing the same buttons he always has, nothing has changed. The longer he spends here, the more invested he gets, the more he forgets which life is the real one.

When do we get to go to new planets for further spacial colonization?

Water's cool, but what about all the other parts necesary for life? I can't imagine primitive life could form easily with just a bit of ice.

I'd say Pluto has a fire's chance in Niflheim of having life.

Mars's water is liquid and flowing, though, so...

To be honest, what I'm really waiting for is an actual sign of life. Like, a skeleton or some shit. Not some H2O.

As cool as it would be to find alien skeletons on Mars, our best bets are probably on finding dumbass little micro organisms.

Those little shits, with their flabby bodies, can't even lift a set of weights. Are they even fucking trying?
