Submission + - Frozen water found on Mercury (gizmodo.com)

Zibodiz writes: NASA has confirmed a surprising, counterintuitive discovery. The inferno known as Mercury, the closest planet to the Sun, has water. Frozen water. Three news research papers based on data obtained by the Messenger spacecraft show undeniable evidence—"clear results" as the project's director calls them.

It's not just a little bit of water. It's huge amounts. Enough to cover the capital of the United States.
