Explored your panorama for quite awhile, like taking a walk up a Martian hill. Are those all strata? Is the Rover in the Mount Sharp portion of their run now? Foothills? Thanks for the nice pan.

It's not mine, I saw it in a youtube video of the user Paranormal Crucible.

I don't know, it looks like eroded strata, it reminds me of a sea shore.

At the time (sol 1000) the rover wasn't on Mount Sharp, as you can see in the following image.

Small but interesting (to me):

mars.jpl.nasa.gov...

Similar to the bowheads, but without a body?

That looks like a actuator motor, likely it has magnets in it. Possibly iron dust that is sticking to it ?

Larve? Yep, larve. (actually not, but that's what it would look like. What is that stuff, goop oil leaking from the machine? Wondering if a dust storm hits the Rover if that hole would allow dust to clog up something.)

Larva or larvae.
No such word as larve.

Either or, or all three, that larvee is not going into my soup. On the serious side of the goal line, that hole looks pretty serious, do you think it might cause a problem in the future or is just "a scratch"?

I think it's just some of that brownish tape they used to cover all cables/connections, as you can see in this photo from what I think is the same piece of the rover.

if only we had the humidity data. and how did a hole get there? has the rover resorted to self harming ?

all these questions and more unanswered by nasa

larrrvee ? you mean that whitish yellowish thing protruding?

maybe the wonders of child birth

brownish tape that comes with a speckled effect?
.. but how did the hole arise in the first place .. or was it always there in the first place ?

I think it was always there, but I haven't found another photo of that piece of the rover from the same or similar position to show that area of the piece.

mottled effect if that is more preferable .

I was being sarcastic when referring to the hole. brown tape? .. on the outside ?.. surely you can see the brown mottling spreading above the hole?

but of course, we all know that the presence of water is necessary for making rust. how could it be

*some more snickering*

What mottled effect, the grey dust?

I think we are seeing a larger area covered with the translucent brownish tape. That area has a small hole in one corner where some connection cable or whatever enters. That cable is also covered with the brownish tape.

You also need iron or an iron alloy to have rust, do you think that they used simple iron alloys on the rover? Also, it only looks similar to rust when you make the colours more pronounced, the original colours in the photo do not look like rust to me.

spotting . call it what you will , but it apparent all around that region .. dust you say , why are the other ara lacking in such dust>?

this looks like corrosion of sorts , not something blown on by the wind, why so localised around the hole ?

again , why put tape on the outside ? and if it was a hole made for cabling , don't you think a symmetrical one would be made ? .. not the jaggy cutout we see here

That grey dust looks like the dust resulting from drilling. That area is close to the sieve (and I think part of the whole scoop/sieve complex).

To protect that area. You can see that tape all over the rover. Or haven't you noticed it yet?


and if it was a hole made for cabling , don't you think a symmetrical one would be made ? .. not the jaggy cutout we see here

If the hole is on a taped area they would only need to make a hole big enough for the cable/whatever.

Because of the weight, obviously.

The artificially enhanced picture is a rusty color, the actual photo doesn't look like rust, it looks like the rest of the dust on the rover.
