Will the French launch a mission to Mars? Structures on surface 'look like giant snails' in pictures snapped by Nasa orbiter




  • Unique structures are coils of lava on Martian surface
  • 100ft across - bigger than any similar coils on Earth
  • Found in imagery from Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter








It's just,......exasperating.

Seems more like the usual sniping that goes on between France & England as opposed to a type of racism.

I thought we'd grown out of it. I mean, I can make enough French jokes myself, but then I'm a 5th generation immigrant from there, so I'm allowed :)

This sort of open, main theme bantering on a national newspapers online site is a bit offputting though.

encule de francais!
