Mars Gullies Likely Formed By Underground Aquifers (http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/mars_aquifer_041112.html)


The revelation in 2000 that gully features have been spotted on Mars sparked numerous ideas as to how the geological features were formed.

A study team is analyzing images of gullies captured by the Mars Global Surveyor’s (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera, adding in laser altimeter and spectrometer data taken by the same spacecraft. They believe the gullies are the products of shallow and deep aquifers in Mars' subsurface.

ToSeek,
You should be ashamed! :oops:
I will 'give you a bit' to think about the problem with your post. :wink:

That "underground aquifers" is redundant?

Water is good, but what we need is oil.
If Mars has oil, we might be going there sooner....

I can hear it now, "war for oil" becomes "space program for oil."
