Twittering Ice on Mars!

The muy-coolest celebrity on Twitter at the moment is the Mars Phoenix lander! It was on Twitter that NASA first announced the discovery of ice on Mars last night, saying "Are you ready to celebrate? Well, get ready: We have ICE!!!!! Yes, ICE, *WATER ICE* on Mars! w00t!!! Best day ever!!"

This 140-character post on Twitter soon set the blogosphere ablaze with the news and Wired Science quickly published this animated photo to show you the stuff that melted...

NASA has more 411 on this amazing discovery, and there will be a good ol' fashioned press conference on the discovery in about 30 minutes!!
