The tracks in those first three shots look like they were made in mud to me, it doesn't resemble sand at all. That last pic shows some ground, but come on does that look like sand to you?? Looks like dirt to me.

What you guys think?

They all look like they were made in a fine dust to me. Come on, there are better shots that appear to be mud than those ones.

i think for it to clump together like that means its slightly moist.

It is possible that could be liquid still deep underground, but I don't think the pics you have highlighted can conclusively say that there is enough water seeping to the surface to make for muddy tracks.

I do believe that there are other areas on Mars where the probability for water is greater....perhaps just south of the poles where the ice begins to melts....The ice on the polar caps can melt, can they not????

i think its because the gravity is more than it is here so it causes the dirt to stay in one place. or i could be compleatly wrong

Hi I am new...*waves*

It does look like mud to me...As if the ground is indeed moist...

I think this due to the way the deflated airbags are messed up...

Mars has about 1/3 Earth's gravity.

Listen Kids, go to the Kitchen, get some flour, and see what kind of tracks you can make in something almost totally dry.

Since when is sand as fine as flour?

Because you're see mostly dust or very very fine material.

there are some places on earth, where sand is as fine as flour, mainly beaches. i've got no real opinion on the tracks though, it appears to look like mud in one picture and in another like fine sand. if the colors weren't in black and white, i believe i could come to better conclusion. but then again, i think everyone could.
