An edible one, that is. As in a pretzel cone, a fruit leather bowl or a waffle boat.
Neither of these recipes uses the traditional custard base of most American ice creams, which means they are much easier and faster to make at home...
But there are reasons to bother, especially with three new books from local ice cream talents sharing the recipes that made their reputations.

  Ice on the Moon
On 5 March 1998 it was announced that data returned by the Lunar Prospector spacecraft indicated that water ice might be present at both the north and south lunar poles, in agreement with Clementine results for the south pole reported in November 1996.
The ice originally appeared to be mixed in with the lunar regolith (surface rocks, soil, and dust) at low concentrations conservatively estimated at 0.3 to 1 percent.
The ice was believed to be in the bottom of a permanently shadowed crater near the Moon's south pole (at the center of the Clementine mosaic shown at the top of the page).

  Ice - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The ice caps of the polar regions are of significance for the global climate and particularly the water cycle.
When ice melts, it absorbs as much heat energy (the heat of fusion) as it would take to heat an equivalent mass of water by 80 °C, while its temperature remains a constant 0 °C. It is also possible to superheat ice beyond its equilibrium melting point.
Ice scrapers are tools designed to break the ice free and clear the windows, though removing the ice can be a long, labor-intensive, and stressful process—especially when a driver ends up running late for work as a result.

 InterCityExpress - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The InterCityExpress or ICE is a type of high-speed train operated mostly by DB Fernverkehr in Germany and neighboring countries, for example to Zürich, Switzerland or Vienna, Austria.
ICE service was resumed only after an investigation found the root cause of this broken wheel and after all ICE train wheels were modified to use a more conventional solid-wheel design.
On some ICE trains, there is at least one (usually 1st class) carriage where individual seats are equipped with LCD screens, built into the backrest of the seat in front.

 Ice on Mercury
Presumably, the ice is located within permanently shadowed craters near the poles, where it may be cold enough for ice to exist over long periods of time.
Ice is highly radar reflective and the radar reflections off ice tend to be highly depolarized, unlike typical silicate rock which comprises the bulk of Mercury's surface.
However, the lower reflectivity compared to pure ice features indicates the ice may be covered by a thin layer of dust or soil or else does not completely cover the crater floor (6).

 04-05 Ice Wall 1
To extend the pipe higher, when the ice builds up, we open a valve in the horizontal section of plastic pipe, out from the ice a ways, so the water is released at the lower point and drains back down from the vertical pipe.
One time a large heavy glob of ice quickly formed on the nozzle head, and a wind blew, and broke the pipe off at the lower junction of that 10 foot section.
The rumor of the stacks of dollars on the minute the last ice crystal melted last year was enough to quiver the knees of the financially timid.

 ICE
Ice Ic is related to ice Ih in the same way as cubic diamond is related to hexagonal diamond, the cubic and hexagonal forms having almost the same density.
The electrical conduction in ice is carried by the protons, whose motion is closely tied to the motion of ionic defects.
Radio waves are reflected by inhomogeneities in the ice and at material boundaries, especially at the ice-water and ice-rock interfaces, and these waves can therefore be utilized to examine the internal structure of glaciers and to determine the depth and bottom topography of large polar ice sheets and ice shelves.

 Ice
Ice is slippery, with a low coefficient of friction, even with dry, and this is accentuated when the surface is lubricated with water.
When ice freezes from water, dissolved gases and other substances in the water, such as salt, are rejected and the ice is pure water (practically, of course, there are usually inclusions of the impurities in the ice, but they are not part of the crystal).
Ice has indeed been used as a material of construction, as in the Ice Palace of Leadville, and roads and railways have been built across it, as across the frozen Susquehanna before there was a bridge.

Iced tea was mass marketed to the general public at the 1904 Exposition in St. Louis (as were many other foods we now consider popular) but it was not invented there.
Ice pits and icehouses were known to have been built in Mesopotamia almost four thousand years ago, and the powerful and wealthy men and women of Persia, Egypt, Rome, and Greece were accustomed to being served cold drinks and chilled fruits even in the hottest weather.
Ice was advertised for sale in Philadelphia newspapers as early as 1784, and Europeans visiting Philadelphia and Baltimore in the 1790s reported that Americans drank water with ice and that containers of ice were used to cool hotel rooms.

Ice is not often thought of as a mineral, but it is! Most minerologists define minerals as having an homogenous chemical composition, with an organized structure and of a natural inorganic origin.
Although no known specimens of ice are sold as mineral specimens, there are scientists that study ice and its crystals for some very important reasons.
