Mars' cold shoulders!

Hi Gang,

Looking just like an image of Earths mountainous regions from space, this image from Mars' Northern Plains shows a good layer of frost on the crests. This carbon dioxide from can cause various surface features such as flow features in the gullies. To see the image go here http://www.nasa.gov/image-feature/frosty-gullies-on-the-northern-plains-of-mars

To me astronomy is looking up and thinking "What the heck is going on up there!!"
