I personally have studied these some 10 years ago having followed the 3 rovers and the lander 10 years ago and watched the water sublimate from the Phoenix digs, at that point I knew 'instinctively' that the dark lines were sand.

Please see NASA link above.I can not continue your course for the obvious reason that some other data will be outdated.However, I truly have enjoyed your presentation method and if and when your updates to other lectures are complete I will endeavor to complete the lecture course.Thank you.ytderek scarpelliCanada 非常好的课程 i love it and iam 10 years old very interesting course A fascinating, excellent, and well-taught course.

david spergel

Professor David Spergel is really interesting and exciting, I am really grateful for all that I have learned during this course.Excellent cours, vous apprenez plein de choses.

Pr David Spergel est très intéressant et passionnant.Je lui suis très reconnaissant pour tout ce que j'ai appris durant ce cours Love it best coursera class I've taken so far Definitely learned a lot but the exercises could have been a bit more involved.It's also too easy to get away with submitting blank essays, but I suppose that's to the loss of the student.
