Maybe Mars got nuked.
Tridymite is a high-temperature polymorph of silica and usually occurs as minute tabular white or colorless pseudo-hexagonal crystals, or scales, in cavities in felsic volcanic rocks. Its chemical formula is SiO2. Tridymite was first described in 1868 and the type location is in Hidalgo, Mexico. The name is from the Greek tridymos for triplet as tridymite commonly occurs as twinned crystal trillings

"Silica is a highly versatile mineral and has found use in a myriad of applications. A silica-based aerogel was utilized in the Stardust spacecraft to gather extraterrestrial particles. Silica facilitates powder flow in the production of pharmaceutical products, such as tablets. It may be utilized for extracting DNA and RNA and is utilized in toothpaste as a hard abrasive tooth plaque removal. Its natural absorbency and light-diffusing properties make it useful in cosmetic applications. Colloidal silica is used as a wine- and juice-fining agent in the food and beverage industries. As a refractory material, silica is used as a high-temperature thermal protection fabric."
Could be worse, look what happened to the next one out...
Sand on Mars? Who knew?
When in doubt, #SiO2
I would refer you to Dr. John Bradenburg’s work. this link is one of many regarding the stories of his theory. I have his original presentation somewhere in my computer. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2843871/Ancient-Martian-civilisation-wiped-nuclear-bomb-wielding-aliens-attack-Earth-claims-physicist.html
Some of the Utopians obviously escaped and made it to Earth. They now call themselves Progessives.
Makes me thirsty for an icy cold bottle of Sunset Sarsaparilla.
Damn it, Jim. I’m a doctor, not a brick layer.
Looks like the Mojave Desert near Baker, CA.
