I've got to think that the tails or stems on the blueberries is more evidence that they are concretions that formed from precipitating out of a solution.

On Science Friday yesterday on NPR, the mission science directory said that was their current idea.

This site is absolutely useless sometimes. So many links past the first few pages lead nowhere. Why did they ever migrate the database at this place without rehoming all of the URL's referenced? Some of this stuff I can't find ANYWHERE on the internet, and it seems like its gone from here, too. I get the impression this site was MUCH better a few years ago. Whatever happened to it?

I once heard that the Internet loses the equivalent of the contents of the Library of Alexandria every day.
I can't confirm that, but a lot of stuff disappears with time.

But can you really fault a bulletin board for an eleven-year-old link no longer being valid?

Earth files wants a subscription, is that normal?

Is your complaint about CQ or about space.com? The 404 error for the linked article isn't our problem, it is space.com's.

Anyway, this isn't the appropriate thread to complain about such things.

I'll PM you to give you an example of what I am talking about. Not the space.com 404 error specifically.
