Scott, Scott! You will go to the Chugach System. There, you will find H2O-da.

If we find water on Mars and someone makes vodka out of it, I'm going to shoot myself in the head.

Anyone who's seen The Thing or Dr. Who should know that ultimately this won't end well. Leave deep frozen things be.

I buy the cheapest vodak possible and run it through a Brita filter a couple of times.

Oldiron_79: if you are distilling it anyways it doesn't matter, facepalm.

Well a fool and his money are soon parted. This way to see the great egress.

If you read the article that the story here links to, they don't actually distill the iceberg water. They make 190 proof hooch and then water it down with the icebergs.

So it's not exactly as stupid as that at least

"Fu-ti-can... It's Japanese. You wouldn't know it. It's in the Japanese character to do this sort of thing. They build these special ships... and sail them to the farthest navigable extremes... and look for the bluest iceberg they can find... and they tow it back. And one is able to drink something... that was last in liquid form about 30,000 years ago. Expensively clean."
"What does it taste like?"
"Like water."

I'll wait for the Russians to start making vodak from Lake Vostok in Antarctica. I'll even pay extra if it contains bacteria that didn't come from the drill they used.

I don't believe for a second that they went to all that effort for scientific research.
