    Is that asteroid made of ice?

    If so, that'd be about 12 million gallons of water, which would be a substantial water supply to start a Mars space station. Of course, I have no idea the amount of displacement of the water due to the nuclear level energy explosion of the impact.

    Or am I think of comets? What's primarily made of ice?

    Could we chop off a giant chunk of ice from space debris and crash it into Mars or would the water just evaporate and dissipate?

    I saw it last night as I was driving home from Phoenix and didn't know what it was. I was hoping it was a UFO.

    Actually, if you hop on a camel and follow that shining light from the heavens, it'll lead you directly to my toilet. I just gave birth to a holy sh*t of epic proportions. Bring gifts.

    Comets are made of Ice , But not frozen Water , frozen Methan mostly so they ignite when they eter a planet with an atmosphere.

    asteroids are Big chunks of Rock!
