The latter photo showed what looked like a flow that briefly emerged from the side of the mountain, spread out and then stop before it reached the bottom of the mountain.

orogenicman, not trying to be a smart ass here (that's been covered nicely), but every time I see the title of this thread I wonder if it's WalMart?

/Silliness

I'm guessing that there are so many pictures coming back that not all of them are being looked at closely. I heard an estimate of years, if not decades, required to research all the information NASA is receiving.

If a confined diffuse flow aquifer, under pressure, is suddenly released, say, by a Mars quake that causes an avalanche on a crater wall , water could flow briefly as an artesian spring before the Martian atmosphere causes it to sublimate, and then freeze.

Somebody looks at every image that comes down. I found the one in the OP in about ten mintues of browsing. Keep in mind that I'm not criticising NASA. I just don't see how they could have missed this one, assuming they did miss it. I say that because I've not seen anyone else mention this photo in any press releases.

Newfound Streambed Latest Evidence for Wet Ancient Mars | Space.com
The video below show rocks that display evidence of what is thought to be from ancient water flow at Gale Crater. What suggests water flow is that the rocks (pebbles) are rounded. While this is on Mars, it is also pertains to geology which can be seen on Earth.

Well time to Gear up for a few a manned Mission to the Moon and start ship that carry supplies to mars and tthen set thenm down so they have enough supplies to last a misssion that far out and solve some problems of getting there and back by figuring out how to create artifical gravity even if we ony create 50%-60% of the graviry on earth atleast they will not lose as much muscle and bone density.

while were at it maybe see if we can get VASMIR or any other type of nuclear powered plasma based engine that uses magnetic confinment to push the plasma out to create thrust and notfigure out how to not damage the Nozzle on engine due to the exteme amount of heat plame creates and increase the speed and cut the time it takes to get there

thhen if we do those things it is even more of a real possiblity to man landing on another planet for the first time and then eat a Mars bar on Mars. Since I bet would pay alot of money to sponser that flight due to the amount of publicity they would get and NASA needs all the extra funding that is donated.
