Thank you Subby and thank you Slate,  I did see this mentioned on NASA's Twitter feed, but I hate going to there site on the phone.  This is truly the better way to see it.

You know I rarely agree with 'Coolest x you'll see in y" headlines; but I'd say this one's probably true.

That's really cool. Thanks, Subbs.

It's amazing what detail that the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter can pick up on.  I'd like to see something like that over Europa.

That's no flapping parachute on Mars. These are a few aerial photos of some white rock from different angles.
