The ESA has released some of the best pictures of ice on the surface of Mars, discovered in a crater as a frozen lake. The ice cannot be carbon dioxide because CO2 sublimates in this part of Mars in the season the picture was taken. The images were taken by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on Mars Express.
