Yes, it’s Ice. But in a completely different form. Scientists have discovered this new form of ice(Ice-19).
Like the moon or Mars, where the temperature is much lower than normal, there may be ice in this form. Surviving microorganisms may also depend on it.
This form of ice is basically a crystal. Which has 4 edges. Which can lead to bone-freezing cold or pressure. However, this new form of ice cannot survive outside the laboratory. Will disappear, scientists said. This new form of ice named ‘Ice-19’. Earlier, 18 forms of ice were found. But not one of them matches this newly(Ice-19) discovered form of ice.
The research paper on the discovery of Austrian scientists has been published in the international scientific research magazine: Nature Communications. At the same time, another research paper by Japanese scientists has been published in support of this discovery.
According to the researchers, this form of ice(Ice-19) may be in the Earth’s mantle (the Earth’s mantle contains a variety of metals) or the moon. There may be planets like Mars where the temperature is much lower than normal.
We are very familiar with snowflakes. This snowflake has a total of 8 edges. Snow crystals have 6 oxygen atoms in 6 corners.

Hydrogen atoms are scattered around them. They do not follow any rules of decoration. So the snowflake is not very permanent. With a little pressure, their shape changes. Due to this the glaciers melt and give birth to rivers. Only 4 edges of the new form of ice(Ice-19). That crystal also contains hydrogen atoms in a strange way.
Researchers have discovered this new form of ice(Ice-19) in the laboratory, below the temperature of 173 degrees Celsius. He had to apply pressure of 2 gigapascals. (1 gigapascal means 1000 million pascals or atmospheric pressure).
