Odd that those photos don't appear on any of JAXA's pages. A lot of people in the twitter feed, and elsewhere, are suggesting those photos are not from the Minerva probes.

The gradual construction of an asteroid, or any body in space, will produce infinitely random shapes and sizes of debris on said body because the gradual construction is powered by 'impact'. As in, rocks smashing into one another. Hard.

You're gonna get square shapes, you're gonna get straight lines. It's inevitable. I've most definitely seen straight lines and square shapes in rock debris down nearly every single river bed I've ever seen in my life. So has everyone else.

Regardless. There's two robots flipping around on a f***en asteroid taking videos and sending the footage back to us.

How cool is this s**t?

I am not really sure, but the author of the tweet sent tweets to: @BadAstronomer @elakdawalla @japantimes @Space_Station @NASA @NASASolarSystem

Those are BIG NAMES in astronomy. Japan Times is a famous newspaper.

The photos cannot be fakes, because the author of the tweet sent the tweet to: @BadAstronomer @elakdawalla @japantimes @Space_Station @NASA @NASASolarSystem

There is no reason to suspect that photos in twitter.com...
aren't from Minerva (Rover 1A).

Apart from the fact that they do not seem to exist outside that Twitter post and the person posting has not provided a source, despite many requests.

Yeah, those can't be real. They're not even taken with the same kind of camera / lens. Somebody must have gone in their back yard and photographed a mud pile.

I am growing suspicious of the photos.

Yes. I was wrong. Those photos have too high resolution, higher than the highest resolution photo claimed by the Japanese officials.

-sigh-

Disappointed.

If you can find a rock where it looks like something if you squint your eyes or cock your head sideways...

You should be able to find an unquestionable find.
Your goal should be to find something that 99.99% won't question as optical illusion or misidentification.

Please raise your bar for ringing the cowbell. Thanks.

I'm not saying you're doing something dumb or that you're crazy. I'm just saying, step it up. I try to do the same with my finds. If I catch too much criticism, I look for a more clear find. I don't take it negatively, I try to improve my eagle eye and find something even better.

Try to get your finds better and better, and you can judge by the amount of criticism the finds get. Try to get less and less criticism. Eventually, every find you post, will have some amount of respect or supporters.
