"We have all of these spacecraft on or around Mars, rovers on the ground looking up and probes in orbit looking down", Meinke said.
She says "If these researchers are right, this is the first time we've found evidence of a large water body on Mars".
Artists' impression: Mars Express probing the planet's surface. This is the point in which Earth is sandwiched directly in the middle of the sun and Mars. This very almost coincides with its [the earth's] closest approach to Mars as the two objects orbit the Sun. MARSIS measures the echoes of the radio waves, which researchers would then be able to use to decode the structure of the subsurface. The properties of the material that lies between influences the returned signal, which can be used to map the subsurface topography.
SKYGAZERS are in for a treat tomorrow when a rare "opposition" event will see Mars at its brightest in 15 years. Layers of the south polar layered deposits - layers of ice and dust - are seen to a depth of about 1.5 km.
Whatever the extent of polar basal melting now on Mars, it was nearly certainly greater in the past, Clifford said.
"This is just one small study area; it is an exciting prospect to think there could be more of these underground pockets of water elsewhere, yet to be discovered".
NASA scientists were not part of this paper but when media interviewed Jim Green, Chief Scientist, NASA, he remarked-"The bright spot seen in the MARSIS data is an unusual feature and extremely intriguing".
"On Earth, nobody would be surprised by such a discovery".
"Water is there. We have no more doubt", co-author Enrico Flamini, the Italian space agency's Mars Express mission manager, told a press conference.
The tool is called the Mars Advanced Radar for Subsurface and Ionosphere Sounding (MARSIS), and was created to find subsurface water by sending radar pulses that penetrate the surface and ice caps.
"The distance between the Earth and Mars is shorter than it normally would be", said Mackay. Actually, as early as 1987, the planetary scientist Stephen Clifford had predicted that the highest possibility of water existing on Mars was in the polar regions of the planet, where water hidden deep under ice caps might remain liquid because high pressure lowers its melting point.
Mars will be closest to earth this weekend while being at its brightest since 2003.
Sydnee Brown, a cousin of Blevins, told the Star Tribune that the video confirms her belief that he was not a threat to police. Blevins' death prompted demonstrations and community advocates had urged the swift release of body cam video.
A degree of calm was restored until Wednesday when Israel said its troops came under fire again, with one soldier wounded. A Palestinian medic carries a child injured by Israeli forces on the Gaza border fence.
And this deal won't hurt the Yankees immediately even if Britton struggles, as they only sent minor-leaguers the other way . Chapman is once again having an All-Star year as one of the numerous invaluable arms that are found in the Yankees bullpen.
Darvish and Chatwood were the centerpieces of the Cubs' offseason, as the two free agent signees cost a total of $164 million. Which will nearly certainly be bought out given that the option would pay Hamels $20 million next year.
With 5.6 million registered voters, the results of the presidential, parliamentary and local elections are expected by Aug 4. That makes a runoff on 8 September a possibility if no candidate wins more than half of the votes.
Trump cited the roughly 1,000 jobs that have recently been revived in this steel town as evidence that his tariffs are working. In recent years, many companies around the region have taken advantage of low USA interest rates to borrow in U.S. dollars.
In another rather extreme test, the OLED display was subject to radical temperatures ranging from a low of -25F to a high of 160F. In fact, Samsung says the display even survived 1.8-meter drops without any damage done to the panel which is really incredible.
No irregularities were found in the on-board cargo, which included items like lithium batteries and about 2,500 kgs of mangosteen. The captain was a "very competent pilot" with an "almost flawless safety record" and there were no known defects with the plane.
Klopp: £67 million for Alisson is not 'crazy money'
Sturridge has just one year left on his contract at Anfield, though insists he's never fallen out with Klopp. If you watch it back and you are not with Real Madrid then you think it is ruthless and brutal.
Colombian cartel places $7,000 bounty on talented police dog
Reports on the bounty's size vary between 20 and 200 million Colombian pesos (between $9540 and 94,124 in Australian dollars). The dog was transferred to an airport in the Colombian capital of Bogotá after authorities learned of the threat.
Manchester United vs. Liverpool - Football Match Report

All You Need To Know About Hepatitis, Its Symptoms And Cure
Men who have sex with men can become hepatitis C positive, due to the greater potential for blood-to-blood contact during sex. To make that happen, health workers must have better access to quality point-of-care diagnostics and laboratory testing.
