And the tool you've never seen? To me it looks like somebody attempted to photoshop (very badly I might add) a cucumber onto the rover...either that or the rover just said, "is that a rock in your pocket?" "Cause baby I'm not a robosexual...."

Howdy,

Not a big deal, but fossils aren't actually rocks... They're a component of some sedimentary (and on rare occasion metamorphic) rocks, and some rocks are almost entirely composed of fossils, but a fossil by itself is not a rock. Calling a fossil a rock is equivalent to saying a grain of silica sand, essentially a small quartz crystal, is a rock.

Again, not a big deal... Semantics, really, but there is a difference, and some people might care more about it than I do...

Regards,
Hydeman

6 and 10 oclockish.

Good find, and remember arken, they deny and ignore!

Awesome! You used "robosexual" in a sentence on ATS! I gave you a star just for that, and for mocking the knuckleheads at NASA for keeping the "dream" alive ! "Curiosity", the should have named it "Lee Lemon" instead. The funny thing? they keep sending a better mouse trap up to Mars, but there are NO MICE! Send some humans, i nominate King barrack and lady hillary! they're both clueless and a drag on society anyway (close third? kardashians - hands down)

also "fossil" denotes at one time it may have been alive. which in the case of Mars has already been proven impossible. Mars, is dead. was dead. and will remain dead. the truth hurts i know, but why not put your resources and vigor into a real challenge, like proving the Apollo program was a hoax or the hillary and barrack aren't BALD FACE LIARS. Just like NASA! There aren't any Mars rovers! ALl those pictures your talking about comes from an old garage on the campus at UC Berkley! Yes. I am so into POISONING the NASA Mars Rover Programs, because they are USELESS and take money away from important things, like bringing young democrats to the usa from guatemala and ecuador or stopping that hissing noise that comes from Joe Biddens head !

Howdy,

Yes, once being a part of a living organism is important. (Kudos, by the way, I almost missed your tone...)

To keep things on topic...

I've seen more than enough fossils and ripple marks (nice to live on sedimentary rock, even if the mineral collection is less than wonderful) to say I think those are more than likely ripple marks/other structural elements(plagioclase cleavage or differential weathering...). I just collected some fossils today, found some external bivalve molds and ammonoids, which others have proposed. They were garbage fossils, but I saw them in person TODAY. With those fresh in my mind, I am even more convinced that that rock is structural.

That said, the majority of rock on Mars is supposed to be basalt, so plagioclase cleavage or flow pattern with differential weathering are more likely than ripples, when thought of in context... Then again, for all I know that rock could just be a lump of clay the rover ran over and kicked away. It has nearly the same tread pattern, right? Right?

Regards,
Hydeman

Thx for the link.

Clearly an ancient acquatic environment.

"All these worlds are yours; except Europa. Attempt no landings there."

that would make up some of the mass needed but not the majority of it. it might be better to leave native worlds alone and go for debris.

Very interesting picture, seems to be half-rocks all over (some look like egg-shells opened apart, I know they're not, but can't large rocks lay tiny eggs?). Impressive field of "shells", nice find.

hmm im at a loss then, ide say maybe the downgraded Pluto but it'd be such a teed to go collect.. maybe we're just not destined to go into the finer points of luxury world building, and for my preferred world , I doubt there would be enough chocolate cornflake cake around to make it

the man was vain enough to Pen his signature in them , surely a contravention in the planetary construction guidelines?
