Thanks.

Not really a NASA source, but connected to NASA at least in some works, from what I could find in a quick search.

So the Rover is very late in crossing the sandtraps (the Old Course at St. Aoonn;vr3npd on Mars) and starting the slopes of the Mount proper. Wonder what the hold up is, do they think that the Rover won't make it across and are just wandering around on the other side, where they came from?


Following solar conjunction throuhgout most of June, I guess she'll get closer and closer to really climbing up that hill on the planned route.

I'm not sure what the mission team's assessment is concerning the field of dunes, but I guess Curiosity can take it ... especially after the experience they made at Dingo Gap. Wear and tear of the aluminum wheels might even be the bigger issue, me thinks, unless they found a reliable way to avoid those pesky sharp rocks.

could be waiting a long time , haven't we been waiting well over a year now to see the inside's of flippy ? those close up colour shots we were expecting



I take it that they decided against it , or did we miss something ?

That was Pinnacle Island, the rock that suddenly appeared in front of Opportunity. They did use the microscopic imager to have a look at the details:

pearlescence inside , indicative of a clam shell ?
, all that red stuff , im sure we could see that in one of the pictures in the thread about it at the time , so far buried i dont even remember it's name,

did they mention its nature or do any other tests ?

Unsurprisingly, the riddle was solved rather quickly back then:


Mars Rover Heads Uphill After Solving 'Doughnut' Riddle
Examination of Pinnacle Island revealed high levels of elements such as manganese and sulfur, suggesting these water-soluble ingredients were concentrated in the rock by the action of water.

Could be interpreted as: "Aquaeous environment. Nothing else to see here so let's move on ..."

hmm, anther rock like it .. where are the pictures of that


"Once we moved Opportunity a short distance, after inspecting Pinnacle Island, we could see directly uphill an overturned rock that has the same unusual appearance,"


they dont even mention the pearlescence or the segmentation, how very thorough

Probably because there's no pearlescence.

I know what pearlescence is, that's why I said that there's none on that rock.

What nacre? On the Martian rock? There's no nacre there.

Because we are looking at colour photos.

how can you tell ? do you not see the similar formations?
or are you expecting the look of something that's just crawled out of the oceans , the lustre of the living ?

I don't see any iridescence, the main visual characteristic of nacre.

The formations? Does that mean that if you find the same shape in a rock and in a plant you assume that the rock is made from cellulose?


or are you expecting the look of something that's just crawled out of the oceans , the lustre of the living ?

So, you are saying that that is nacre just because some of the shapes look (relatively) similar to some of the shapes of some things that have nacre? Shouldn't be the other way, looking for things that look like the rock?

ill think ill reserve any more thoughts until i see the other picture, apparently nasa have seen one just like it, so they must have a picture,

wouldnt it be ironic , yet highly implausible that, it was the other half of this one, and the other half was in much better condition , and Nasa took a real close up shot , the pearlescence was so peralescent that it instantly gave you flash burns

but then these ones that are from earth are really pieces of slate, nothing more.. absolutly no pearlesence on them ....

Obviously.

I don't think there's any sedimentary rock that has pearlescence.
