no , like I said I was busy, sorry to have kept your highness waiting
well we are talking semantics here

firstly mars is smaller than earth I assumed a weaker magnetosphere , was I correct in my assumption?

secondly I assumed that a lot more radiation enters mars atmosphere than earth (our base of understanding)

just using these assumptions .. would this go some way in making the conditions on mars harsher than earth? for supporting extremophiles' (weather they are singular celled , or otherwise )

have you spotted anything yet? seen anything mildly peculiar?
well sides from the obvious ;P

because of the long thin tendrils...

What "long thin tendrils"?




"river" did you look at the full picture?

Yes.


it looks just like a river down the road from me.

To me it looks nothing like a river, unless you call a piece of land with sand and rocks a river.

so you like my rendition of 'mars -blue its swampy vacation'? a 10 minuet piece without a graphics pad , will always look mildly terrible, mouse control can never replace the tactility of a paintbrush, graphics tab

I don't know. But would simply smaller imply a weaker field? One may have to consider factors such as rate of convective movement within the molten core. So you can assume it was the case however, since Mars was able to maintain a significant atmosphere (without the solar wind stripping it away) for a couple of billion years, I'm not going to make that assumption.


secondly I assumed that a lot more radiation enters mars atmosphere than earth (our base of understanding)
It certainly does now. Mars lost its magnetic field a very long time ago and as a result, its atmosphere (which provides the primary source of protection from cosmic and solar radiation), and its water. But, billions of years ago, when Mars had a magnetosphere, a significant atmosphere, and liquid water on its surface, there isn't much reason to think that radiation levels on the surface were significantly higher that those of Earth. I don't see any particular reason to think evolution would have progressed at a much faster rate than on Earth.

No way of knowing of course, without evidence. But with Earth as our "base of understanding" it would seem a broad assumption.

Here's a different tile. This one is obviously more (or less) weathered.


Looks like the same one, it has the zigzag raised edges..

What good is an underground entrance?
Or an aboveground tunnel?

He did leave the riverbed though, flooded the place:-) it actually goes around the bend. Curves to the right, seems to be a log in there far to the right. he turned my brown windegoo roots in the foreground green!

Ok added an earth desert river to top a little to close to the river but will have to do.

All of the tiny little Mars peeps have learned to live underground, they have tunnels all over the place. They sometimes need to come to the surface but can't stay long, thus they have trap doors and hill tunnel entrances that can be seen here and there. The ones in the higher hills seem to be used more often

Main problem remains that our base of understanding is one planet out of gazillions (is that a number?)

See, it was a joke.
"Underground tunnel" as opposed to what?
Or, you could also see it as the entrance to the tunnel being underground.

Get it?

I think at the time I meant evolution after the catastrophe , if there is life there now it would be in an extreme form under harsh conditions , I think we were coming from either sides of Tiamat on this one
pre cataclysm evolution could have followed the same or a similar vein to earth, but after, bang, what then , does life flip off its sandles/ shoes and give up? in whatever advancement it was in pre event , not the life I marvel at, I think it would have gone on , underground at first and as the environment changed about it, it would have adapted.. but this is all on the assumption life was even there before the catastrophe , I guess that's what this mission is all about

thanks for your clarification,

Look at the shadow and the object is very rootlike. Again i guess your eyes see differently than mine.

I am amazed that I see what looks like a river and you don't (and maybe no one does) see it at all, I know it is illusion that it is water I can even see the sparkles on the water in the large version of the picture, but I have black and white river photos that look exactly like it (to Me).
