The Pic from NASA itself

My wife, a trained geologist, said it looks like an old river bed that the rover is in. It is quite possible that is a large rounded river stone. The shiny reflection is because it has got some reflective metal inside it.

No civilization on Mars. At best some fish and small animals, more than likely there were only simple bacteria.

Gets a S&F from me. Hell if I know.

That has always puzzled me too! Why doesn't NASA get closer shots of these objects so it can show the public these are just rocks. There's been enough speculation surrounding Mars photos.

They do have better shots. If you were nasa would you send a rover all the way to mars with a low res camera?
The truth will never be told.

You made me think, we keep being told about how much water was on mars, lakes, deep oceans, but I find it strange that I can't recall seeing one single water worn pebble in any image I have seen.

just saying

Probably! So why teas the public and publish these questionable photos? They must like starting conspiracies.

And will anyone drive that thing over there for a closer look? No. ffs. I would do double time without the pay increase. Hell, I would do it for free.

We sometimes can't even get high resolution photos of the moon.

How convenient most government buildings have easy accessibility ramps these days, just makes it easier for those damn Daleks!

Thanks for posting OP. NASA should take a closer look at this feature that does not look natural, but I doubt if that will happen based on past experience (the other smaller dome does not look natural either). As a retired cartographer and photo analyst that did NASA contract work on the Apollo Lunar Landing Mission, in my opinion it does not appear to be a rock; but a closer look by NASA would settle the inquires. Very interesting indeed.

Sillies... that's simply Phobos and Deimos rising... not some Star Wars pad.

Now I'm kidding about that being a moons rise, for those less space wonky... and that is, in all probability, just worn, weathered rocks... but it is interesting and could be something unexpected, so good find.

I think signs of a civilization on Mars isn't totally out of the question, considering the very real oddness noted there... buuuut this doesn't drive the ol' nail into the coffin on a dead, never-been-inhabited Mars, for me.

It just looks like a smooth, domed rock.. .with almost even markings around the perimeter... and a cable snaking down the hill with an outbuilding... no, darnit... it's rocks! You folks are messing with my reality constructs... stop it! Stop it!

Oh, well if your wife said, no further discussion required i guess.

Thread closed.

I'm glad you said that, and not me.

If you assume any living body has a D.N.A informational sequence to sculpt that body for its environment, then we also have to assume that solar radiation has a good chance of damaging the sequence.On Mars any living thing would have to live away from the damaging surface radiation. So its in the caves and underground where the rover should be looking . Saying the red planet is too young to have developed intelligent life could be fraught with a time dilation problem as Mars time would not be Earth time . If we are talking millennia with time being relative , then evolution could be a lot faster on Mars relative to Earth , in that case any intelligent civilisation could have out grown its original Martian D.N.A .Then altered it to suit whatever is required. In fractions of the time , it takes relative to Earth time.

Could be.? I just wish we had some 3D perspective. Short of the rover whipping out a tape measure we will continue to be plagued with a lack of perspective.

Thats just a rock. Its easy to tell its a rock because of where the photograph was taken. See, this is a picture of Mars, where no life of any kind, let alone dome-building civilizations, have ever existed, much less exist now. I read all about Mars in my 4th grade science book and thats the final word. All thats up there is rocks rocks rocks.


We should rename "Mars" to "Rocks".

If you look at the original image, in bottom left is nearly spherical rock right there lol.

It's looks like a rounded rock, partially buried. There is a similar fully exposed one in the same image. I am guessing a dried stream if you ask me.
