Dark Slope Streaks Split on Mars.
Image Credit: HiRISE, MRO, LPL (U. Arizona), NASA. What is creating these dark streaks on Mars? No one is sure. It could be dust avalanches, evaporating dry ice sledges, and liquid water flows. What is clear is that the streaks occur through the light surface dust and expose a deeper dark layer. Similar streaks have been photographed on Mars for years and are one of the few surface features that change their appearance seasonally. Particularly interesting here is that larger streaks split into smaller streaks further down the slope. The featured image was taken by the HiRISE camera onboard the Mars-orbiting Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO).

The Pataxó are an indigenous people with a population of about 11,800 individuals. They once spoke the Pataxó language, but now speak Portuguese.

There is evidence that the village of Barra Velha has existed for nearly two and a half centuries since 1767.

This flared Paris porcelain vase mounted on a gilt bronze stand (museum number 463-1844) is painted with a profusion of brightly-coloured flowers dramatically set off against a completely gilded background. It is most probably bought from the Escalier de Cristal retailer Lahoche, Boin & Cie at the 1844 French Industrial Exhibition. The acquisition of this vase actually pre-dated the building of the South Kensington Museum, which is where it is presently.
