Planetary Geology: A Detective Game

…full of unsolved yet soluble mysteries!

Mysterious craters on Mars

I’m shamelessly bouncing all you readers over to the Bad Astronomy blog for this post, which is a great outline of the detective process that is planetary geology. It’s also a great illustration of how much context matters and how leaping to conclusions is…bad. AND it’s a good demonstration that, when there are several hypotheses in consideration, elements of each could be synthesized into the proper conclusion.

All things for us to keep in mind, in science and in everyday life!

(Also, way cool pictures that are reminders of TOTALLY AWESOME events in the past!)
