Is there water on other planets in our solar system?

    Yes, there is. The Moon Mars and Europa all have water. It is UNDERGROUND on Mars. Other planets and moons, especially Enceladus and probably Uranus and Neptune, have cryo-geysers. Anyone. who insists Mars has no water is more than 10 years out of date and has no credibility.

     Europa does have a hidden ocean dozens kilometers deep zx

    No surface water.

    Some objects are thought to have some toxic aqueous fluids saturated with corrosive salts deep within them, but essentially any "water" that exists elsewhere in the solar system is either frozen solid, or is a gas that sublimates from the solid into the vacuum of space.

    I am curious as to why you singled out water out of all the liquids and other substances that are known to exist in the solar system. Ever considered which planets have liquid hydrocarbons? Liquid CO2? Pools of molten sulphur? Geysers of liquid nitrogen?

    Yes. Most of them have water, 1but not liquid water on the surface. Mars has ice all thru the ground. Europa and Ganymede and Enceladus have big liquid water oceans under miles of ice. Even the moon had some ice frozen in craters that are in darkness.

    yes there are water on some other planets in our solar system but not as earth.

    Yes, as follows:

    Mercury--ice in deep craters near the poles

    Moon--same as Mercury

    Mars--polar caps, plus subsurface ice and/or water

    Jupiter--small amount in atmosphere

     Europa--possible subsurface oceans; surface ice

     Ganymede--surface ice

     Callisto--surface ice

    Saturn--most of its 82 moons have lots of ice

    Uranus--ice on some moons

    Pluto--plenty of ice

    It does actually look that it can be everywhere

    Yes, the oceans of some of the moons of the gas giants have more water than all the oceans of the Earth.

    There has been water ice detected on Mars and Mercury;  it likely also exists on several moons of Jupiter, Saturn, and on ours as well. Saturn's moon Enceladus is thought to have an subsurface supply of water; The Cassini probe flew through geyser plumes when it was in operation.  Around Jupiter, Europa and Ganymede appear to have ice on the surface, and there may be an ocean beneath Europa's ice surface.

    yes, water is fairly common.

    Uranus and Neptune are thought to have a supercritical water ocean beneath their clouds, which accounts for about two-thirds of their total mass, most likely surrounding small rocky cores. Water on Mars exists today almost exclusively as ice, with a small amount present in the atmosphere as vapour. In June 2020, astronomers reported evidence that the dwarf planet Pluto may have had a subsurface ocean, and consequently may have been habitable, when it was first formed.

    re moons:

    Scientists' consensus is that a layer of liquid water exists beneath Europa's (moon of Jupiter) surface. Enceladus, a moon of Saturn, has shown geysers of water, confirmed by the Cassini spacecraft. A subsurface saline ocean is theorized to exist on Ganymede, a moon of Jupiter, following observation by the Hubble Space Telescope in 2015. Ceres appears to be differentiated into a rocky core and icy mantle, and may have a remnant internal ocean of liquid water under the layer of ice.
