3. That picture's all over the net,
but I did find a NASA link with some more information.

7. Ice isn't necessarily water ice.
However, in the little snippet from NASA someone posted above, it was stated that this is a picture of water ice.
Earth after global warming? They're two different planets. All it means is that there's water on Mars (which does mean quite a lot, in fact).
