← Vast stores of water ice surround Martian equator

Hey! Maybe we won't need to resurrect the mammoth! Maybe -- maybe we can find one on mars!

An author named Stephen Baxter wrote a book about just that subject. Admittedly, the mammoths were resurrected by us first, then transported there, but even so.


Great! Now we can drill for water in Mars. The trick is to figure how to transport it back.

I presume you're joking there? What it does mean is that a Martian colony could become a viable proposition if it is sited near a sufficiently large subterranean body of water.
