Mars shows off a riverbed

NASA’s very own Curiosity is sending back images of river rocks. They even figured (based on size & dimensions of the gravel) that the stream flowed at a good 3 feet/second.

Pitch my umbrella, I’d give a Martian nickel to lounge on the red planet’s beach.



And I thought sky-diving was as good as it gets…

Footprints on the moon last…well, just about forever. With no atmosphere to stir up wind, tracks have no reason to disappear.

I guess sneaking away for a space pee is out of the question. Bummer.
