Astronauts have noticed and photographed the craters for decades, and the Operational Land Imager on Landsat 8 captured a new image of Clearwater Lakes (Lac à l‘Eau Claire) on June 29, 2013.

The researchers discovered that brain activity is very similar whether dreaming, visualizing, or actually carrying out a specific action, although brain activity was about half as strong during sleep. “The main obstacle in studying specific dream content is that spontaneous dream activity cannot be experimentally controlled, as subjects typically cannot perform pre-decided mental actions during sleep,” study researcher Michael Czisch told LiveScience.
