So, NASA released an image of gullies eroded into the slopes of impact craters on Mars today.
The image was captured by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, and NASA says the colours in the gully channels and alcoves “offer another indication of youth and recent activity”.
“The pre-gully landscape is covered by secondary craters from nearby Gasa Crater, estimated to be about 1 million years old,” NASA says. “Although some have suggested that the Martian gullies are also about a million years old and formed in a different environment, we now know that they are continuing to form today.”
