Ohhh, this is kewallllll. Life is gooooood.</blockquote><div><br>Oh come on Spike, here is the quote from physorg.<br><br>><span name="intelliTxt" id="intelliTXT"> Small pieces of a 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," the statement said.
<br>> "It must be ice," said Phoenix Principal Investigator Peter Smith
of the University of Arizona, Tucson. "These little clumps completely
disappearing over the course of a few days, that is perfect evidence
that it's ice. There had been some question whether the bright material
was salt. Salt can't do that."

This is one complaint I'll always come back to with well trained, otherwise very good scientists, they have a lack of imagination. We need to sit them down and have them watch Ocean's (11, 12, 13) movies. Lay all the explanations on the table and consider them. Not just the most obvious.<br>
