    I have enough problems without worrying about the MARTIANS!!! ...
but I am glad that someone from the PSN is keeping an eye out for them.
    Forced to make a statement commensuate with the honor of
"geoscientist", I would say that the worms are lava tubes, but then
again, maybe some spaced-out nerdess/nerd at JPL is running wild with
the VR software. The worms, and the pinyon pines on the alluvial fan are
certainly fascinating, though. Thanks for the tip.
    Let me know when global warming begins to cook us.
