Um, this is not like a new revelation, for 200 yrs the discussion of ice and lakes covering Mars has been discussed. I mean since the 1960s, images collected by spacecraft at Mars have shown geological features that suggest they were made by now-vanished glaciers.

They have also found lakes inside the planet, but it turned out that the water is quite salty there. Whether any form of life can exist in lakes depends on the degree of their salinity. On Earth, in highly salty water bodies, only a special type of microbes, called halophiles, survive.
