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.

View of Alaska from the ISS.

“Our Father who art in nature, who has given the gift of survival to the coyote, the common brown rat, the English sparrow, the house fly and the moth, must have a great and overwhelming love for no-goods and blots-on-the-town and bums, and Mack and the boys. Virtues and graces and laziness and zest. Our Father who art in nature.”
― John Steinbeck

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!"

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.
