Aren't the weird channels in the second pic water gullies? Martian prospects keep on getting better and better.
I believe it was determined that the gullies were actually made from a salt water paste (salt water so thick it was more of an ooze than a flow). However, that may only be a theory.Originally Posted by Glom
Water and salt? Even better.
I especialy like the big fish eating the little fish at aprox 10 O'clock ( top picture) . :wink:
Mars has fish? Even better. :wink:
Looks like a giant footprint in the middle of the lower pic. :P
If we find much more evidence of water the first manned mission will have to pack rubber rafts.
More - unbelievable. Unbelievable. The first astronauts on Mars should take along a canoe.
I don't know if there's terrain that layered on Earth. The question now isn't "Was there water?" or even "Is there water?" anymore. The question is, "What sort of bait would work the best on Mars?"
Wow! That bottom one looks like a section of a fractal!
...and, any bets on how long it'll be before some 'loon' discovers "the lost city of John Carter of Mars" in one of those pictures?
Well ... I wouldn't give up on the "Is there water?" question just yet. We still haven't seen a lake or a river (just the remnants of same).Originally Posted by BigJim
Well, I'm not going to start an arguement, but the evidence for current water on Mars is very, very, very, very, very strong. Go here and look at the articles entitled "Martian Biology in Plain View?" and "Strongest Evidence Yet for Water Flows on Mars".
Some really amazing photos in those articles, almost irrefutable evidence.
Cue Richard Hoagland in 3, 2, 1...
That looks like a fun link. NASA has shown evidence for water before. The drainage features overlaid sandstorm features indicating the water had flowed fairly recently.Originally Posted by BigJim
I looked at the picture(s), and the first thing I saw was a human torso.Originally Posted by BigJim
This guy is a reputable scientist, though - that page is a joke.
