    How to use "Cupule" in context?

    Cupules are small, slightly upward-pointing, and sometimes turret-shaped formations on the surface of Mars. They were first found in Mars global coverage images from the Viking 1 and 2 landers in the early 1970s. Cupules are common on steep slopes, and may form where water has accumulated over time. Cupules are believed to be icy structures, as the sunlight breaks up the surface layer of ice and allows photons to bounce back and forth, producing light and ice ions. Cupules have never been definitively identified as anything other than ice, but their distinct shape and color intrigue some Earth scientists.
