When is a thigh bone not a thigh bone? When it's a rock on Mars!

UFO Watcher Spot Mysterious Bone-like Object on Mars




The latest oddity spotted by bloggers who follow the images coming from Mars rover Curiosity doesn't take a lot of imagination to see.

It really looks like a thigh bone. Well, some kind of bone.


Does anyone know the timeline of when this was discovered and by who? ATS user ArMap found it here on August 17 ( www.abovetopsecret.com... ), when did these 'bloggers' first spot it? Thanks.

And to the poster who keeps complaining that this thread exists and was on the front page, I don't understand the logic at all. If there is a 1 percent chance that this isn't a random rock, but is a possible fossil, don't you think that's enough of a reason to put it somewhere where more eyes will be on it? The anomalies thread is written and read by a certain boring group here, like funbox, whose attempts to find life on Mars tell us nothing about the type of person that posts there. So if they would only keep to themselves and throw bottles against the wall in private, yes, it would be better. But, alas. sometimes their madness finds its way into the ATS mainstream, and we can only shake our heads in wonder at their folly. (written in jest, of course. Except for the madness part, and the head shaking.)

Who cares who saw it first. It was published to the public in as true a fashion as NASA has done with all of the rover images. There is always time late to the high resolution images and there is no doubt that it was taken on the 14th, because that data is encoded in the filename and has a sequence number encoded as well. You cannot slip something in between that system.

"msl-raw-images/msss/00719/mcam/0719MR0030550060402769E01_DXXX.jpg"

"This image was taken by Mastcam: Right (MAST_RIGHT) onboard NASA's Mars rover Curiosity on Sol 719 (2014-08-14 21:49:28 UTC).

Anyone that looked at it , would most certainly have seen the simile to a bone. Rock perhaps, but one of the most intriguing images yet by these machines IMO.

yes it was taken on the 14th , but it wasn't downloaded on the 14th , the ufo blogger article date says the 14th.. does this site have earlier access then? maybe a top wifi connection to the rover itself ?

I and other people interested in historical accuracy care who reported it first. These are the early days of Martian exploration, and, if in the future, more of these bone-shaped-rocks are discovered and researchers determine that this and other rock-shaped-bones are the real deal, then the gods and goddesses of history will be jumping up and down and pointing fingers at someone. I'd rather they point their fingers at ArMap (who found the image) and funbox (who first portrayed it), as the journalist researchers who brought it to the world's attention on ATS, which would require nailing down when and where the report of the discovery first emerged.

OK... I’ll stick my neck out!

It may be just me, but I don’t think so, the ground looks disturbed, like the brown coloured ground/soil has been deposited there. Bear with me, if you look real close at the full res image posted by Charlyv, something doesn’t sit well with me, there are some linear marks (bottom right and half way up on the right) that look like something(s) have been removed? The greenish rocks look like they have been broken/shattered? Don’t ask me by what... I have no idea. Also, there are more ‘bone’ fragments, the more I look at the high res the more I’m thinking something isn’t right here. I’ll try to mark the high res and post to help explain what I’m looking at.

I don't know who found it first.

My friend emailed the initial image (with the red circle) almost a day before I posted it..

Does that help?

He found it on BIN.

The rover's wheel... ran right over the rock.

There's now a youtube on the rock/bone/sandcastle, this was on another thread. They credit that UFO blog with the find, but that doesn't mean they were over the goal line first (or short of the goal line first):

That image (according to Maxthon, that shows the file date of most images) has a "last modified date" of 2014/08/16 15:38:43. The image on NASA's site has a "last modified date" of 2014/08/16 02:01:08.

I hope that helps.

So it was released to the public sometime during that 13 hour span? Like a detective novel. What time did the UFO blog grab it?

I don't know, it doesn't show a date for the image.

Also, there are more ‘bone’ fragments [...]

They're not really bone fragments. What you're seeing is the calcium that has seeped or blown into the cracks and then solidified. You see it in-between the flat rocks. Now what the rover has done is run over some of them, dislodging them. The pieces look kind of flat, with nobs on the ends where they turned at an angle or were at the junction of some of the flat rocks.

Either way, the white stuff and the "bone" are the same thing.

Here. See how thin it is? It's just some of that calcium stuff, turned on its side. It doesn't have the thickness of a real bone:

Just as the Earth has meteorites from Mars, this is a bone from Earth. Here's an actual video of how it got into space.

Yeah, come on... another BO-RING pic of another planet... yawn... next they'll have threads about discoveries at the cutting edge of science and space exploration... hrumph.

Give me a break... I'm off to watch a sit-com on the telly... at least THAT'S new.
