An avalanche is not the same as a landslide. In fact, they are different.

Where are they awarding these journalism degrees? Don't they still have Roget's Thesaurus on the recommended purchasing lists?

Maybe Mars farted and the plume is going upwards.

"It's great to see something so dynamic on Mars. A lot of what we see there hasn't changed for millions of six thousand years."

In before the evangelical evolutards start their daily campaign of ignorant hate rants without even a cause. There, I gave you a reason to actually flame a science thread with rhetoric; have fun!

FTA "It's great to see something so dynamic on Mars. A lot of what we see there hasn't changed for millions of years."

But wait, didn't we just get pictures proving that things have been changing on Mars? My guess is that they have been changing for millions of years, not just since we started getting pics on March 24, 2006 (new window)

Sheesh, and she's a "team member"

My redlit submission was: Best picture of an avalanche caught on Mars in the last 4 billion years (that's 6000 years to you Creationist Stupid Heads.

Someone will have to post a 6000 year theory or this thread will get boring in a hurry...

Well, National Geographic, The Planetary Society and NASA all refer to it as an "avalanche", so yeah...
