Probable Water Ice on Mars

A press release from the Phoenix Lander mission at the Univ. of Arizona says:
Dice-size crumbs of bright material have vanished from inside a trench where they were photographed by NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander four days ago, convincing scientists that the material was frozen water that vaporized after digging exposed it.

W00t! Best day ever for planetary science in our solar system!
