The slope rises as high as London's Big Ben tower. Beneath its ruddy layer of dirt is a sheet of ice 300 feet thick that gives the landscape a blue-black hue. If such a scene sounds otherworldly, it is. To visit it, you'll have to travel to Mars.
"A Fantastic Find': Mars Hides Thick Sheets of Ice Just Below the Surface" is from the January 11, 2018 National section of The Washington Post. It was written by Ben Guarino and narrated by Jenny Hoops.
