Real science: Picture of a curious Martian landscape

A picture of Martian dunes, showing curious tendril-like growths that look like vegetation & an avalancheClick image to enlarge to original size.

Explanation of weird tendrils is in Discover Magazine (but went over my head). You can actually see a few seconds old avalanche-in-progress in the picture too (bottom left quadrant, third tendrils from bottom, a little red cloud above right half with smaller growths).
