Mars from Mars


This is a large photo from the surface of Mars. It was taken by Curiosity using a two mega-pixel camera as  NASA’s Mars Science Lab looks around Gale Crater: This color panorama, which includes the highest part of Mount Sharp visible to the rover, was shot by Curiosity’s Mast Camera on Aug. 8 and 18, 2012 Click on the photo to really experience what it is that you are seeing.

  1. I see free flowing black gold in the river bed, and ancient clam shells on the river bank, and five white globular Ufo's which look to be coming in for a landing.

    2. Maybe Mars does have oil on it. It had an atmosphere, mostly gone now, once the volcanoes relaxed, not enough gravity to hold it. It had water, you can see the riverbeds and deltas. Probably had plants.(?) Go Chevron. Mars Light Sweet Crude, the very best the solar system has to offer.

  2. "This is the first time that we've had a human voice transmitted back from another planet", said Chad Edwards, chief telecommunications engineer for the Mars missions.

    "We aren't quite yet at the point where we actually have a human present on the surface of Mars ... it is a small step.”

    It is Nasa’s first astrobiology mission since the 1970s-era Viking probes to Mars.

  3. "...was taken by Curiosity using a two mega-pixel camera..."

    WTF???

    My Kodak DC 4800 from the year 2000 AD has 3.1 Megapixels.

    I'll bet the two little guys have bigger cameras that.

    WTF???
