The trickles leave long, dark stains on the Martian terrain that can reach hundreds of metres downhill in the warmer months, before they dry up in the autumn as surface temperatures drop.
Images taken from the Mars orbit show cliffs, and the steep walls of valleys and craters, streaked with summertime flows that in the most active spots combine to form intricate fan-like patterns.
Scientists are unsure where the water comes from, but it may rise up from underground ice or salty aquifers, or condense out of the thin Martian atmosphere.
“There is liquid water today on the surface of Mars,” Michael Meyer, the lead scientist on READ MORE

A NORTH Devon who has spent the last eight years nursing sick and injured hedgehogs is facing the possibility of having to close her rescue sanctuary.
Due to a lack of space and , Anni Nicholls, who has adored hedgehogs from an early age, is faced with the threat of shutting the doors of North Devon Hedgehog Rescue.
Anni said she was devastated at the thought of having to turn away sick and injured hedgehogs, but has been offered new hope by Bideford-based holiday lettings company holidaycottages.co.uk.
The holidaycottages.co.uk team is looking to raise £2,500 through crowdfunder.co.uk, in order to help prevent the closure.
Something hit me and I saw stars.Dartmoor Skies is a charity that aims to inspire people about astronomy and science.
The founders of Dartmoor Skies, Rob and Bryony, have been pitching their telescope up on Dartmoor for the last couple of years and know just how amazing the views of planets, stars and galaxies can be.
Heavens above....Space. It's quite big and although it is mostly, well, space, it's got lots of stuff in it too. Anyone can look up and be swept away by the beauty of a clear night's sky, and we've found that most people want to learn more about what they are seeing. Our purpose is to make astronomy more accessible by running astronomy events in multiple location and providing a small, but perfectly formed, collection of telescopes for people to use. Think of us as a mini mobile observatory with cakes, hot drinks and blankets.
Nerd-in-residence Rob will give a talk on a chosen subject. He'll then set up the telescopes and make sure they're pointing at interesting space objects for you. Feel free to ask him lots of complicated questions...it'll help him learn too.
Sometimes our events will focus on a particular planet or galaxy. Sometimes they'll be about more general subjects like constellations. For each event there's a talk, possibly some activities, and if the skies are clear we get you outside observing.
There's lots to see on your own doorstep and we hope to make it all a little less daunting.READ MORE

“I 100 percent believe there is life outside of Earth” — Four Year Strong shares their love for aliens
I went to your tour kickoff in Cleveland two weeks ago and noticed you had some merch items with aliens on them. Also, you wore a shirt referencing the 1940s’ Roswell UFO incident. Definitely got me thinking, do you guys believe in aliens?
DAN O’CONNOR: [Bassist] Joe [Weiss] and myself have been really longtime fans of alien lore, TV shows and films [about the supernatural]. We both grew up watching The X-Files. One of our favorite movies is Fire In The Sky and when I was in sixth grade, I did my science project on “Aliens: Fact or Fiction?” Just this past year on one of our tours, we made it to Roswell, New Mexico, which is super-cool; they have all sorts of cool alien museums and [stuff] about the crash that happened there. I’ve always been interested in it, I’ve always been a big space guy too. I watch a lot of space documentaries and a lot of science-based and cryptozoology-based [programs] like Bigfoot read more

As the nights draw in and the heating gets turned up, spiders make their way back into our homes. With False Widows and giant house spiders cropping up around the UK, here are the best (and most outlandish) ways to keep your home spider free.
A popular old wives tale says that chestnuts can be placed around the home to deter spiders. Some claim they hate the smell, others claim they keel over in the presence of a walnut. There’s no real evidence to support this though, so use either as a last resort or for a good old playground game.
Where there are insects, there are spiders
As the evenings grow darker, it can be tempting to leave outside lights on which serve as a beacon to the insects in the area. The spiders aren’t attracted to the light, but will follow the insects. If windows are left open with the lights on, expect a lot of spiders to be following those moths.
Essential Oils and Vinegar Sprays
Eucalyptus, tea-tree or even peppermint oils might keep the spiders out. While some might enjoy the smell, the spiders do not. Spray around windows and doors. A similar option is vinegar. With an infinite amount of uses around the house, one of them had to be deterring spiders. Side effects may include deterring friends and family from your extremely fragrant home. Check out a good oil spray recipe here.
Get a Pet
Preferably a cat. Cats have been used as hunters since humans first began to interact with them, and even the most docile tabby cat will still follow his instincts. While they aren’t going to eliminate the entire spider problem, they’ll catch anything they see sprinting across the living room floor. Use caution if there are poisonous spiders in the house like the False Widow, as they can hurt animals too.
Your recently adopted cat will hate this too, but lemons, limes, oranges or grapefruit smell terrible to the average spider. The peels work perfectly, so just save them whenever enjoying a healthy piece of fruit. They do need to be replaced every few days as they dry out and lose their potency.
Cedar and Tobacco
With a convenient source of cedar or the money to afford to sprinkle tobacco around the home, these may also repel spiders. Cedar wood will work, so hangars may work in wardrobes. Investing in cedar furniture is only for the serious arachnophobe.
Keeping your home clean
Perhaps the most boring method and the most effective. Spiders love to hide in dark and neglected places, and any leftover food will attract insects that will in turn attract more spiders. Vacuuming or dusting away cobwebs and egg sacs will make spiders less eager to return. Removing plant matter and debris from around your house will also work as a preventative measure as there will be fewer spiders to move inside.
Caulking the gaps
Spiders have to get in somewhere. Sealing up the edges of windows and gaps in doors will make it much more difficult for them to find an entry point. You can also use a fine mesh across any air vents around the house.
Keep in mind, these tips are for homes with the normal influx of autumn spiders. In the event of a serious spider problem or if all else fails, contact an exterminator. False Widows are not aggressive and will not bite without provocation. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/how-to-keep-spiders-out-of-your-house-10500086.html... http://www.independent.co.uk/img/rO0ABXQAa2Z7aHR0cDovL3d3dy5pbmRlcGVuZGVudC5jby51ay9pbmNvbWluZy9hcnRpY2xlMTAyNTM3OTkuZWNlL2FsdGVybmF0ZXMvdzYyMC9vcmItc3BpZGVyLWdldHR5LmpwZ31mNzc3N2YzMjB0.jpg

Four years ago I was listening to a few radio wrestling shows and no one was talking about the British scene and I thought I got to try and start my own show promoting the British things around the country and wrestlers and the shows and went from there
Our aims have always been the same if one person goes to a British show and says I loved it and thank you then it's job done
Plans well hopefully to keep growing and improve both me and Nixy are our own worst critic if we had a bad show then no one can tell us as we will know and hopefully to promote more and more successful shows for the British scene
Dean Mitchell (owner and presenter)
i was inspired by watching world of sport wrestling as a young boy, and watching some live shows, when i got the chance to try the sport i jumped at it, ive been hooked ever since and cant get enough of it, i plan to continue wrestling for as long as i can having turned 50 this year ive been wrestling for over 30 years, i have taught the sport to young lads wanting to get into it as well and my aims are to make sure as many people get to try the sport as possible but in a safe way so they know what they are doing and can do it without getting hurt through the sport it has kept me fit and kept me inspired to reach for my goals that is me at 50 years old.

Question 1: But to awnser your question, what inspires me, is a lack of information about the Greys. When I get offended, because I feel most the things on television only talk about bs. From UFO or Ariel claims, to hybrids (7th kind). Whenever I find somone that thinks they should obey the Greys and arnt actually up to something. I guess I get most inspired, when I'm offended by these oppionions overly optimistic. It seems the Greys have been insinuating that they have nothing gain from abduction. At least, nothing of an ill will, tgats what grey said. It seems the greys benifit from abduction, and lie around every positive corner. it seems abduction consist and forever will, and it does not infact favor humanity. Something was stolen from the children I feel, and most have suffered memory erase, unaware of their missing time. Some of these subjects are the presented with a peaceful display, and this is all the can recall, what they where aloud to see. Hear the subject often goes around and sounds ridicules as he says not only are aliens his friends, but they came just to hang out, or for some other claim no one would beleave. It seems successful abduction consist as A: no memory, or B: sounds crazy, thinks the Greys are zetas and extremely peaceful, with no ill will. In conclusion what motivates me is this controlled broadcast from the Greys.
