Scientists now have definitive proof that many of the landscapes seen on Mars were indeed cut by flowing water

Scientists now have definitive proof that many of the landscapes seen on Mars were indeed cut by flowing water | कृषी व्हिजन | Scoop.it

The valleys, channels and deltas viewed from orbit have long been thought to be the work of water erosion, but it is Nasa's latest rover, Curiosity, that has provided the "ground truth".

 

Researchers report its observations of rounded pebbles on the floor of the Red Planet's 150km-wide Gale Crater.

 

Their smooth appearance is identical to gravels found in rivers on Earth.

Rock fragments that bounce along the bottom of a stream of water will have their edges knocked off, and when these pebbles finally come to rest they will often align in a characteristic overlapping fashion.

 

Curiosity has pictured these features in a number of rock outcrops at the base of Gale Crater.

 

It is confirmation that water has played its part in sculpting not only this huge equatorial bowl but by implication many of the other landforms seen on the planet. 

 

Using its Chemcam remote-sensing laser, the rover was able to detect feldspar in the lighter toned clasts.Feldspar is a common mineral on Earth that weathers quickly in the presence of water.

 

This suggests past conditions were not overly wet and that the pebbles were carried only a relatively short distance - probably no more than 10-15km. This fits with satellite observations of what appears to be a nearby network of old rivers or streams spreading away from the mouth of a channel that cuts through the northern rim of Gale Crater.

In real life, assistive robots will have to pass muster with another group of people before care recipients have a chance to accept or reject them: healthcare providers, including nurses and their assistants.

Boxwood Blight Update: Cylindrocladium pseudonaviculatum - Box Blight Pathogen

Boxwood blight has been discovered in the US. Learn how far it has spread and how the horticultural research community is addressing this new plant disease introduction.

Boxwood Blight (Cylindrocladium buxicola or C. pseudonaviculatum) is a new plant disease to the United States, having first been confirmed in the October, 2011. The disease can cause significant defoliation and branch dieback to infected plants. Most of what we know about the disease is from research done in Europe where the disease was first discovered in the early 1990s.

Up to date information is given at Webinar on Boxwood Blight Update: Where they are in US and where they hope to be? In Europe there is not much done in preventing the spread of this new fungus, which is moved by infected plants for planting and it is very difficult to control, once it is established in new area.

The travel photographer, Serge Bouvet, met this danser of Kachhi Ghodi in Kathputli Colony Slum (new Delhi). Bandit areas of Shekhawati have been behind the origin of this dance varieties. It is carried out to entertain the bridegroom and his escorts in a marriage party. Elaborate costumes are worn by the performers, which helps make them appear as if they are riding on horseback. Brandishing of swords, lively sidestepping and pirouetting to the songs and drums are made use of in the Kachhi Ghodi dance of Rajasthan.

 

Kachi Godi derives its name from the work Ghoodi meaning ‘mare’.
