It would be fun if someone makes a few billion mission to mine the gold and it happens to be pyrite

Fools gold. Anyone who invests the money to go up there and mine it is a fool. The people who sell the ships and equipment to go there are the ones who will hit the motherload

could it actually be gold then? maybe thats where the gold on earth came from thre is a big crater in the middle with lots of little ones on top, so the big one is old but how old is the question

I'm sure someone has a way of telling with some over-my-head math and analyzable light refraction technology. But let's just say it's gold!

You're right, only a fool would be up for the motherload. Instead of taking it on the chin, I'll wait to invest in the mother lode.

Sorry to be the party-pooper, but these are inverted colours. They are a bit false as well, because they captured infrared light instead of red.

The filters were assigned to color channels in reverse order, compared to natural color; in other words, the short-wavelength blue images were assigned to the red color channel and the long-wavelength infrared images are assigned to the blue color channel.


Here are the colours in their right order:



What looked like yellow areas are actually blue areas, indicating either freshly-exposed rocky material or even ice. The older surface is red-ish due to space-weathering by cosmic rays and solar radiation.

So we're all agreed, no-one tell Mr T. And to cover all stations, no-one tell The Stone Roses, either.
