    A very salty underground lake. I think I heard at least a kilometer below the ice.

    Ok now all the democrats from California will want to go to mars to get free water to hose their lawns down. But little do they know that it is a one way trip.

    The article stated that these are likely to be somewhat common. i.e., they don't think this is the only lake on Mars, just the first one they have found.

    I’m guessing the Bassmaster Classic will add Mars to the rotation.

    I listened to Richard Hoagland use Mars Global Surveyor images to explain and predict the presence of water, including water flows, on Mars 18 years ago. There have been other scientific papers discussing the possibility of water and water flows on Mars going back even further, but they couldn't benefit from the later gathered data.

    Also, I thought I remembered the astronauts had to use a raft to cross a large body of water in 1959's The Angry Red Planet (that movie scare the hell out of me when I was a youngster). :p

    I just hope they find the flag that was left by the astronauts, so that Sheila Jackson Lee will be happy.
