I saw this photo earlier today. I am befuddled.

What the heck is that thing??

What is the white squarey looking thing to the right of the little dome?

I think it looks more like a landing pod. Like something that would come from a larger ship.

Wow! This is a great find. There is not doubt in my mind that there is or once was life there. I wouldn't ber surprised to find out there are humans living there.

I am no expert when it comes to mars stuff, but this really interesting!!!

This looks very shiny, is it a metal? Does rock shines?

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.


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


I was watch a documentary on the Nazca Lines and they were doing an experiment to see whether some of the drawing were actually ways of collecting rainwater and marking the best places to dig for water. They did start digging, and after going past twelves inches of desert sand, they found plant roots, went further down and found wet sand, then mud and water.

That looks more like an old piece of booster rocket. Russia launched plenty of probes at Mars, so why shouldn't something have been found by now?

Very interesting, sticks out like a sore thumb.

I agree with what others have already posted, I want some close-ups.

Anyone notice how reflective that dome is?

As if it's metal

It's a rock photographed at an odd angle. Optical illusion, paredolia, call it what you will, y'all are seeing things you want to see. You seem to be lacking objectivity ats.

I'm no Andy Dufresne when it comes to geology but that structure looks to me like it is on top of a hill , not in the riverbed the rover is in. It also looks too be way bigger than the surrounding rocks it's near. If that's a rounded river stone then bears do not defecate in the woods, they go somewhere else.

I think its so funny that the rover just never gets a close shot of any of this stuff lol we sent it there for close up of this kind of stuff, not distance shots lol great find! we all paid alot for the rover in taxes right? i want to drive it for a day lol

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.




indeed..maybe the budget was blown in the rover

Curiosity has many missions, none of which are to take close-up photographs of 'this kind of stuff'. If NASA were to divert it off its' scheduled course to get closer to (and photograph) every unusual looking or reflective rock it comes across, then it would never achieve any of its' goals.
