What I find interesting in that 'scoop' picture is those little balls of Martian dirt which look as though they are easily broken down, and that
they are a small layer on top. I'm thinking that these are formed by being driven by a moist wind, enough at least to make the dirt aggregate
together into the little balls as they are driven along, a bit like rolling a snowball, but not moist enough to make the balls into a solid substance,
and easily broken if you stood on them. That if true, sort of begs another question, since they are fairly uniform in size where they sit, is that the
termination point of the wind, or is it at the point where the wind no longer would be an influence on the balls as they would be 'too heavy' in
relative terms, for the wind force, Mars is a strange place, it only looks a bit like Earth.
