    Anyone know what that "martian forest" is? Is that like methane ice crystals or something growing from a fissure?

    From the caption on that picture, martian forests are apparently found.... on Mars.

    If you like satellite pix of earth, nasa has a site they update each day...

    Re: Really cool space pictures from 2010

    Here's some more info on the Martian Forest:

    This image shows a region of sand dunes in the high northern latitudes on Mars. The features that look like bristles, and actually streaks on the crests of the dunes. In the winter, a layer of carbon dioxide ice covers the dunes, and in the spring as the sun warms the ice it evaporates. This is a very active process, and sand dislodged from the crests of the dunes cascades down, forming dark streaks.

    In this last pic (close up) you can see it is actually going down the back slope. In all the others it looked to me like it was rising up. Kinda cool!

    and #10

    It would be nice to know what star that really is? Maybe Alpha Centauri?
