NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter photos reveal recurring steaks on Mars due to flowing sands, not water

 

Written by Laurie Cantillo / Dwayne Brown
NASA Headquarters

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – Dark features on Mars previously considered evidence for subsurface flowing of water are interpreted by new research as granular flows, where grains of sand and dust slip downhill to make dark streaks, rather than the ground being darkened by seeping water.

Continuing examination of these still-perplexing seasonal dark streaks with a powerful camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) shows they exist only on slopes steep enough for dry grains to descend the way they do on faces of active dunes.

This inner slope of a Martian crater has several of the seasonal dark streaks called "recurrent slope lineae," or RSL, that a November 2017 report interprets as granular flows, rather than darkening due to flowing water.

101st Airborne Rakkasans build squad-level proficiency at live-fire range

 

Written by Spc. Patrick Kirby
40th Public Affairs Detachment

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – The range comes on the heels of their recent Joint Regional Training Center mission as opposing forces.

“The training up to this event was pretty in-depth,” said 2nd Lt. Josh Hartwell, a native of Crete, Nebraska, and the officer-in-charge of the squad live-fire range. “After returning from JRTC we got right after it again with a team live-fire and now with the squad live-fire.”

The range integrated the crawl-walk-run methodology by starting with a blank-fire during the day, followed by an after action review. The soldiers then rehearsed their hand and arm signals, and their patrolling tactics more and went through the range again as a live-fire.

Draven Pancake, a native of Evansville, Indiana, and an infantrymen with Company C, 3rd Battalion, 187th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team “Rakkasans”, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), engages targets, from his support-by-fire position, Nov. 7. The support-by-fire was set up while the bravo team maneuvered into a flanking position to take out the enemy bunker. (Spc. Patrick Kirby, 40th Public Affairs Detachment)
