The simmetry of these streaks is Amazing!
Martian winds do not blow like that now there is very thin atmosphere. The little stones at the edge would have covered the bare bottoms of the water veins by being blown with the ancient winds.
Thousands and thousands of years ago water flowed on this planet, namely in this location. This area had little streams which carried away stones and sand leaving fine silt and the observable veins pictured above. As the planet dried, namely this area, the wind blew and eroded the fine silt leaving behind the ancient water veins
I think we may be getting somewhere in this thread. If we can give many instances of rocks making grooves in the ground or tracks, then we are closer to proving life is there. (which we all know is true, right?)
No, I am afraid there will have to be a better explanation than this. It is more likely to be current fluid flowing across the surface of Mars as I see pipes used to direct the fluid in a lot of photos and evidence of flowing fluid in a lot more.
You can believe that hidden intelligent aliens never seen caused them with invisible pipes, but to suggest it was erosion on a planet billions of years old is too fantastic to imagine?
Sorry to burst your bubble, but Earth has far more erosion than Mars does. On Earth it comes from wind, water and general wear and tear and this is obvious just looking at the environment on Earth. Mars we dont see many grooves on a small local level evidenced by the rovers on the ground. I have linked to other examples of grooves which cannot immediately be explained away as localised dust-devils or erosion.
Not necessarily- grooves are caused by many other things than life. In fact, I'd hazard a guess that the majority of grooves on Earth are not caused by the flora and fauna.
