NASA has been quietly posting some extremely strange imagesfrom Mars. The ones of cirrus clouds in the Martian sky havebeen extensively commented on, but the image reproduced hereawaits comment.
Clearly, there is either a free flowing or frozen liquidclinging to the base of these large stones. From thephotograph it might be possible for experts to determinewhether or not this substance is free flowing, and there issome possibility that its chemical composition could atleast be speculated upon.
If this image had been taken on Earth, it would be assumedthat it was of liquid water filled with sediment of somekind. But, given that it is on Mars, that assumption may nothold.
The Jet Propulsion Laboratory needs to address these andother images in a meaningful way.
