News has just broken 3 minutes ago of water on Mars. We can finally leave this dying planet to Wall-E and the like. Via The Press Association:

Scientists say the chemical test confirms the presence of ice near the Martian north pole. Until now, the evidence for ice has been circumstantial.

Nasa said it was extending the mission an additional two months.
