Thursday 10 Jan 2013 / Hour 4, Block D: Robert Zimmerman, behindtheblack.com, in re: gold strike in Australia. Bigelow private space hotel. New images of a dry riverbed on Mars. Reull Vallis, the river-like structure in these images, is believed to have formed when running water flowed in the distant Martian past, cutting a steep-sided channel through the Promethei Terra Highlands before running on towards the floor of the vast Hellas basin. This sinuous structure, which stretches for almost [1000 miles] across the Martian landscape, is flanked by numerous tributaries, one of which can be clearly seen cutting in to the main valley towards the upper (north) side.
