Curiosity has found another round rock on Sol 1555.
This image has been debayered, enlarged and cropped.



This in not the first found on Mars by Curiosity, see this thread www.abovetopsecret.com... by jeep3r for others.

Here is the image the crop was taken from


And here is a link to the raw image on NASA's website.

It looks a bit ovoid to me.

The squarish rock next to it has boobs though.

You can tell from your own posted image that it's not perfectly round.

The shadows make it look a little egg like I think, but you could be right.

You need to cut back on the porn

Scale? It appear to be a member berry, Mars equivalent digital storage media device. Now if we can only find the player...

Martian "blueberries"

Edited it from perfectly round to just round, thanks

I thought it was the shadows making it look not perfectly round.

Not sure, but but I think it's size is closer to a marble than a bowling ball and bigger than the blueberries found by Oppy.

I'm sure, blueberries litter the surface, formed by geologic process, according to NASA.

Further: Take a giga ton of frozen gasses sealed up in permafrost, blast them with an impactor and they boil away in Martian rarefied atmosphere, producing these mineral concretion nodules in the process.

Love to have a necklace made from those.

Priceless...

Look's like Hitler's mother not only put it in the Albert hall but batted it all the way to mars, it's blue and painful as well.

Awfully sorry I could not resist, actually it look's like a pebble washed down from somewhere or dare I say it an Egg.

Not sure what you are saying. Is photoshopping like Christmas shopping?

I use GIMP and imageJ, not Photoshop. There is a link to the raw image at NASA's website.

If you look to the upper right corner of the image you will notice a smaller one with almost the same color and roundness.

Also I think that other use was claiming that NASA is photoshopping and faking the Rover images, not that you are tempering with them.

I see it, looks about the size of one of Oppy's blueberries.

Thanks, got it, they are claiming NASA missed covering up the round rock

Quite often these 'bluberries are partially embedded, they are very often quite round. There are various theories as to how they came about.

Extract from Wiki,
"In 2004, NASA’s Opportunity rover found countless gray-blue spherical rocks on Mars. Scientists proposed a number of theories—from volcanic eruptions to shockwaves caused by meteor impacts—to explain the tiny spheres (nicknamed blueberries by the discovery team), which contained large amounts of the iron-bearing mineral hematite."

Another recent theory is that are destroyed asteroid remains. Whatever, it seems pretty clear the roundness came from being superheated material.

sorry if I insulted you good tread , it wasnt my Intension I just meant to say that I don't believe that official Mars pictures from Nasa actually come from mars. Too much wierd stuff on the official 'Marspictures' Nasa had to do a better job in photoshopping

why is a round shaped rocked peculiar? we have those on earth... and the moon, and on any celestial body able to support rock formations.

It's a hematite. Or just Curiosity losing its marbles.
