Mars orbiter detects carbon dioxide ice on Red Planet

Nasa's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spotted traces of carbon dioxide ice on Red Planet. The orbiter has found that carbon dioxide ice more often covers the ground at night in some mid-latitude regions than in polar regions of the Red Planet, where it is generally absent for much of summer and fall.
