Trump spoke out against the sale on the campaign trail, vowing to stop it from happening, […]

    WASHINGTON DC — Since the discovery of dark streaks on the slopes of Mars in 2011, astronomers have been excited about potential evidence of water beneath the surface of the red planet.

But further study of these recurring slope lineae, known as RSL, is revealing something else. Those dark streaks may be the result of granular flows […]
