    Mars Express Orbiter Snaps Image Of River-Like Formation On Surface Below

    January 18, 2013

    The European Space Agency’s (ESA) Mars Express has offered up a high-resolution photo of a river-like structure on Mars. The spacecraft used its high-resolution stereo camera last year to snap an image of Reull Vallis on the Red Planet.

    Reull Vallis is a river-like structure believed to have formed when running water flowed in the distant martian past.

    The ancient river bed cuts a steep-sided channel through the Promethei Terra Highlands before it runs towards the floor of the Hellas basin.

    ESA said that the structure stretches for almost a thousand miles across the martian landscape, and is flanked by a number of tributaries. In fact, one of the tributaries can be clearly seen cutting into the main valley towards the upper north side, the space agency said.

    I wonder why how these are still around if there were in fact rivers and seas on Mars. You'd think over the millions of years they'd be covered up by the martian dust and evidence be eroded away. Makes you wonder if it's not that old.
