Mars Images Boring

I don't know about you, but I'm finding the Mars Curiosity Rover images particularly boring these days. Now that it's making its way across that dry river or lake bed, there's basically nothing much to look at other than cracked bedrock. And the images seem to be worse these days then what they have taken in the past. Mastcam images are slightly out of focus. Handcam images are posted on the website upside-down.

It's like it's tired or something. The archived images are much better, and make me think of all the interesting things that the Rover just blew by in order to get to this boring spot.

Yes the images are getting a little boring but going to this location has a scientific purpose.

space.com images of Titans surface

Maybe these will keep them cravings away though

We have learned one thing at least;

Mars never had aquatic vessels, at least ones that never sank.

Well there is only so much they can do since they are filming in Greenland, and adding a reddish tint afterwards....

They were always boring to me. It is like watching a video of the tundra. No aliens anywhere, nothing interesting in the least.

Oh pshaw! Icy tundra doesnt crack like a dry sandy lake bed.

Now if you said a desert, I'd say maybe.

A tundra video would be far less intriguing IMO.

The thing is that in more than 40 years, since the Viking probes landed on Mars, there has been no mission that was explicitly designed to detect present or past life on Mars.

And there seems to be quite a track record of avoiding (in some cases even destroying) any features that actually look like they could be traces of past life on Mars. Of course, we get a lot of science in return and now know that Mars used to have lakes, if not even oceans. But still ...

Oh FFS sorry image from another planet cannot produce crystal clear images of silicon based lifeforms to satisfy the ATS conspiracy narrative "a la Star Trek". Jesus H, pictures from another planet that scientists educated in geology can study for years are boring......

FFS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have you ever been to Mars to take your own photos?

No??

Shhhhh. Sit down and be quiet.

That's because the giant Martian sand worms ate them all

Well, to me it is boring, maybe you have not experienced all the stuff I have and think it is great.

I liked the fictional show Star Trek, because of that show getting people enthused about cordless phones and cell phones they are common now. Star trek set the stage for the smart phone technology we have now too. That show was created by Hollywood in conjunction with NASA to condition people to fund space exploration. We were conditioned to desire the technology.

Notice that in all these space shows there is war and killing going on, we were hooked on creating space weapons by the people creating that show too. WE were conditioned by shows about war to desire to fight in wars. Propaganda and conditioning has been going on for a long time.

Mars does not enthuse me, I would rather they spent the money on creating things we need to help preserve our ecosystem here on earth. No distant planet is in reach of our ability to get there, the warp technology cannot be made with the science we have or the science we will be creating for a very long time, by then we will have destroyed our ecosystem if we do not take measures to preserve it.

You can get all enthused about Mars pictures if you want, I would rather get enthused about a sub at the Ambassador or a Tino's pizza. I would rather go out fishing for Bass or northerns or go canoeing on a lake with the grandkids. Even having a bbq over the fire in the fire pit is more interesting. So are classic muscle cars and playing around with a tractor with a loader and backhoe to prepare to pour a floor and build a house. Building houses is fun. So is planting a garden.

But you can look at your exciting pictures of Mars if you want, while I go fishing or boating on a lake.

"Mars images boring"..


We're not even a type 2 civilization - and we're board with pictures taken on another planet.

..Says something about our addiction to immediate gratification and sensory overload - we get board with amazing things.

We'll need to lose the desire to be amazed, before the singularity.

Good job images isn't Curiosity's primary purpose, and it's providing great science regardless of whether there's a bit of fine dust on the lens, or whether the terrain is a bit "boring".

I find this image interesting enough, looks like red rock or even dried up mud: mars.jpl.nasa.gov...

This recently-observed rock look very interesting: Link

I've just looked at some MAHLI images, and they're no upside down.

This MAHLI image looks very cool, showing some mineral veins in what looks like dried up mud. mars.jpl.nasa.gov...

Why don’t Musk send his boring machine to Mars??

Not only would the photos not be boring but we might catch Martian uh, erm, in flagrante!! A new interweb niche... Martian porn!!

Would that be... boring?? (Leave the Andrew Dice Clay jokes at the door!! lol)

Sandworms are native to Saturn. They aren't traveling again are they..

Mars looks exactly like Arizona just with a beige to red filter. Clicked this link because I thought it was about drilling on Mars for urgaynium.

Funny how Curiosity hasn't yet reached its target location: the slopes of Mt Sharp. I wonder when it's going to do that. The images would get really interesting then.

It’s this same ludicrous apathy that saw the Apollo missions to the moon end..

How are y’all not in awe of pictures from another planet...
Another planet!!

Out of curiosity, what does impress you?
If I was guessing it would be something I’ve never heard of [millenial idiocy I’d suppose]
