Hi all,
Just a lurker passing by. I have been looking at the pic from Gortex's great thread here:
www.abovetopsecret.com...

And found this interesting 'rock' in the Naukluft Plateau near Mount Sharp. To me it looks metallic, like thin sheet metal partially buried. I guess it's just a play of shadows or something but i found it interesting.



You should go over to Gortex's thread and have a look at the full size image. If nothing else it's a fascinating picture to look at.

There are several other rock shapes in the larger image to the left of the "5" that suggest other kinds of once living things.

thanks Armap for the pointer...search didnt show this thread.

I wanted to take a breather from US politics...

found this interesting "thingy" or a weird rock at least.

Sol 1384




At first glance...it resembles a bone...notice the distinct whiteness of the object...compared to the rest of the surrounding.

Also...on the original image...on the right side of the object there are some whitish ridges protruding from the sand. As if some remains of the skelet. But it's iffy...

I missed that pic....looking at it now...it's an interesting feature. Actually...there is more on that pic...though I dare not say what I see.

Just came across this sand-colored feature (top-right), imaged by MAHLI on sol 1411:

Source images: 01 | 02

It's a close-up image of this rock and probably something of geological nature rather than biological (feldspar?) or are those just brush marks? I couldn't find any further details and thought I'd post it here for those who keep track of Curiosity's activities.

Noteworthy feature (bottom-right) in a recent MAHLI image:

Certainly looks interesting to me, if it's not of geological origin then it must be ... oh well, you be the judge!

*a irksome, yet very definite portal reasserts itself ,small undulations ripple and flex into the soup *

I seem to remember having a discussion about these marks, not here though .. and by the looks of it, discussion has faded into some peculiar political mist, that seems to have poured itself all over this site... hmmm

Regarding my musings a few posts further up, I had to stand corrected since the "swirls" were actually caused by the dust-removal tool (DRT), although unlike any other DRT scratches we've seen so far (did a thread on that a while ago).

There's some other interesting stuff in there, but nothing sufficiently odd to be earth-shaking according to the general consensus in that thread.

I miss this thread... Why users stop posting things here?

Looks to me like a cave entrance or like child fort, with 3 sticks in the corners of the entrance and a rabbit draw in one rock.

Round rock with inscriptions, looks like roman numbers.

hmmm ... drip drip



New analysis from NASA's Mars Curiosity rover shows that the red planet is likely flush with organics.
"I am convinced that organics are all over Mars," said Jennifer Eigenbrode, a biogeochemist and geologist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.

"They're all over the surface and they're probably through the rock record. What that means is something we'll have to talk about," Eigenbrode said last week during a National Academy of Sciences workshop about the search for life beyond Earth.

ill sure you'll be keeping an eye out for confirmation

the quotes seem to be a little too comprehendible for something that was blurted out at the Christmas office party, or has it come to a point where information is just being completely made up ?

Said at the workshop guess her opinion but if she is convinced I am sure there must be good reason.

nice find , is that official enough for ArMaP though ?


maybe she knows something more about the methane spikes than we do , so little has been said since they were detected o so long back

I really despise long drawn out storey lines, with ever slowing and mundane plot twists

but a least the drills busted , they might just reach the top of mount sharp, for some exploration and photography now
