View Full Version : BB's

2004-Mar-04, 04:53 PM
Many references have been made to the BB sized sphericules seen on the Martian surface. Can anyone give an indication of the actual size of these (mm or inches)? It would also seem sensible to provide a scale with the photos because it isn't always obvious that what apears to be a towering cliff in closeup is in reality about 4" high.

A lot of this is being discussed in Martian Chronicles. For example, check out this thread http://www.badastronomy.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=11104. Its discussed that they are a few mm's in size.
