The article also shows photographs from other angles as well as Google Maps imagery that show how the illusion comes about. Good way to start a discussion of real underwater waterfalls in the thermohaline circulation.

India starts countdown for Mars mission | GizMag.com

India starts countdown for Mars mission | GizMag.com | Aardrijkskunde | Scoop.it

India has started the clock on its most ambitious space project to date. On Sunday at 6:08 IST, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) began the countdown for its Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM). If all goes to schedule, the unmanned probe will lift off on Tuesday from the First Launch Pad at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SHAR), on the island of Sriharikota at 2:38 pm IST atop a Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C25), marking the point where India hopes to launch itself into the space-faring big leagues.

 

On Sunday, the fourth stage of the PSLV was loaded with monomethyl hydrazine propellant and mixed oxides of nitrogen, followed on Monday morning with the beginnings of fueling the second stage. Once launched, the MOM probe will act as a technology demonstrator to show that India can design, build, launch, and execute an interplanetary exploration mission. In this case, a mission to Mars, which will involve a 300-day passage followed by studies lasting six to ten months from the spacecraft's elliptical orbit.
