'''its such an obscure question that there is no research I can do online.'''
I feel the process must be similar and related to the mechanics of venting. We
have many venting actions in our picture base.
In the case of the slides,,, let us suppose,,
(thought experiment),,, liquid under the surface where it rises then turns into a gas. At the point of exit, the sand would find a void beneath it,,, causing the slide???
And exposing the still damp (for a while) regolith beneath.
Ahhhh,,, our constantly changing surface of
Mars,,, a busy, beautiful, place, totally at odds with the cold dead planet theory.
(sorry to go off on a tangent, Kyle...:>),,
Glass on Mars (volcanic),,,methinks horts pictures years ago
With the gravity,,,,,,, think very long distance travel of heavy to light objects.
Meteors, volcanos, vents from subsurface,,
(when very very hot meteors,, n,miles deep cools down)
Were Mars ever mined there would be very high profit on rare metals meteors/meteorites.
The surface seems to be bountiful in alumunuim and magnesium,,,,, very light,
very strong, building material.
The first five gallon bucket of Mars soil
brought back to Earth should go for at least
half a billion $$$.
I would think building materials (rocks)
sand,, could reasonably be turned to a robot driven brick factory with solar. The winds on mars have negligible effect unless dust storm force.
I hope that it is the hope of everyone here
that something said on RGB or USMF will be an inspiration to some young excited teenager
reading thru these posts.
Hortonheardawho,,,,, May the Father Bless and
Keep you and may you live at least as long as you'r Mother. God Bless her also. You have been the heartbeat of this little group. My
prayers will be for you and yours, during this trip. Please give us an update now and then.
Kyle its you and bs, lws, Kevin, zoost, festus, Dishman, mann, paulanderson,dx? and all the others who browse here infrequently (myself)
What need is it inside ourselves that gives us cause to post on this very small (seldom
read)forum. For me I think it is
Running, jogging, walking trails on Mars.
Not in my lifetime but coming anyway.
By his very nature man has been an explorer
of final frontiers.
Humanity has shrunk the Earth and needs more
room to grow. Mars has the same amount (roughly) of land as Earth,,,, there is room there for several millions of families. Children born on Mars will be the
real-time test of Darwinism,,survival of the fittest and adjusting to the environment.
I am a God man myself,,,(There are many things I cannot tell you for you could not bear them),,,,
Sorry Kyle for the Soapbox post but my feelings for Mars burst thru at times.
I am full of respect for all of you who support this Forum. I am heading for the coast tomorrow,, but I have a small bit
of bandwidth, even down there. I read ALL
posts,,, some I do not answer simply because I cant find them. Barsoomer also looses posts.
Many people post here and receive no reply.
This is not good,,, No I am NOT bitching/complaining at all as I am more guilty than most of you.
DX,, I haven't heard from you in a LONG time,,,,whassup?
You really picked imageJ fast! Beautiful work!!
