Another image that makes my mind boggle.

Mapping to Make Sense of Pluto

Today’s blog post is from Oliver White, a postdoctoral researcher in planetary science at NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. He studies the geomorphology and surface processes of planetary bodies in the outer solar system.

I'm truly sorry, but I can't keep explaining this simple thing to you over and over again hoping that you'll finally understand something so simple and obvious.
I'm not the "Dumb-Ass Whisperer".

I really, really hate anti-semantics.

Here's something you don't see everyday: Wringing out a wet towel in zero gravity.

I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

Yup!

But it ruins the old "joke:" "We all sprung from apes - but you did not spring far enough!"
Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

Inspired by Tank's offering some (too early in the morning) thoughts came to me about the "survival" of craters and that either the Martians ones are late or there has been a lot less "weathering" there than on eatth. Less weathering implies less weather there - far less atmophere for a very long time?

Then I looked for known craters on Earth and their ages.



There are probably traces of smaller ones as well.

Here's a map.
