Dark Slope Streaks
I don't understand why this topic seems to be in so many articles that focus only on a specific feature or location on Mars. Slope streaks are ubiquitous on Mars, so they warrant their own article. More importantly, I strongly object to the following language: "...Several ideas have been advanced to explain [slope streaks]. Some involve water or even the growth of organisms. The most exciting thing about dark streaks is that they are currently forming today."
The statement about the growth of organisms does not have a checkable reference and seems sensational. Organisms are not mentioned in reference 9, and reference 10 is not a published source (at least as cited). Also, saying that the most exciting thing about...is an opinion, not a fact.
