Yeah, that is a lake.
I was thinking more specifically of the 3/4 dried up "pond" in the impact crater.

That is a lake also. Just mostly dried up.

Interesting....

Would you know off hand the rules involved in posting the images on other sites, i', sure there would be terms in regards to posting them on sites that already have ads?

Obviously it's kosher to post them in forums etc, but what about colocation to help out?

Not sure what you mean... those images from Malin Space System, and NASA are in public domain and ESA also just requires the proper credit

The color version was done here at ATS

So give proper credit and your good to go... k


As far as the debate of the last few pages, lake or not a lake...

I see only one thing in these images, conclusive and absolute proof of need for a Manned Mission to Mars as a Major National priority. Definitive proof, definitive answers at this point not to IF we can colonize the planet but how we should do it.

Is it viable as an another Earth? capable of sustaining 20 million transient visitors and supply many resources or can it be terraformed. Is there enough atmosphere for______

These debates are fun, worthy of discussion.

But it is obvious that the planet can be manned and made useful... the degree to which we can do so doesn't much matter, it's time for serious exploration...

A permanent base, a shuttle system that can go back and forth multiple consistent trips every year like the space shuttle program and nothing less should be accepted by us.

I have indeed been a bit out of the loop from what I am seeing now, the one debate that is no longer disputable is that a permanent presence and traffic system to and from Mars is mandated from what we are seeing.
