Found this story just a few minutes ago: “There’s enough ice on Mercury to encase Washington DC“. (The slightly more technical version of the story can be found here). Specifically, the said encasement would be 2.5 miles deep. In many ways, this type of finding completely baffles me: ice, which has this strange tendency of disappearing at room temperature, remains intact while constantly hanging out next to a massive nuclear-powered furnace.
My favorite part of the story, however, was found in the comments. One person (rightly) said: “On the other hand, Washington DC has enough hot air to melt that ice.” Awesome. There are a few other good ones in the comments, but I’ll let you read them for yourself.
