For "Some" Scale Reference


Curiosity Rover Nav Cam Imagery from October 24, 2018

Shows a large nearby pyramidal object that looks like it has a face resembling modern Earth, human architecture. Tapered edges with cascading steps. A rounded corner edge with shiny looking luster. This is a larger shape in the distance, from what I see, and not a close hill, as was suggested at first glance. I am updating the thread with a better image that shows the rover scale as compared to this object in the distance. (Curiosity is about the size of a small car/large golf cart, to help you visualize this a bit. For best investigation I recommend checking the original images, that I direct link below.)

I'd take this appearance with a grain of salt, as these images are from a low resolution black and white composite from the nav cam.
However, you must admit the appearance is very attention grabbing. (I saw this in nav thumbnails over a month ago, and was waiting for closer images, thank you MSL/JPL.)

I'm sure NASA/JPL/MSL would love to provide us clear, color, imagery of the outcropping, but since Curiosity had a mentalchanical breakdown on September 16th, and lost a whole brain/computer board, we haven't had any MAST cam imagery at all. This was around the time I noticed the big pyramid in some of Curiosity's nav thumbnails.
(Will update this thread as new images of this specific area and objects of interest are received from Curiosity.)


This whole area is one of the most interesting I think I've ever seen Curiosity driving through. I'm looking forward to more, especially closer images of the big black rectangle plateaus. (Natural, allegedly, but just because Mount Roraima is natural on Earth, doesn't mean it isn't amazing.)

Looks like some dirt that have collapsed from the hill and formed two triangle shaped piles at the foot of the hill

Looks like a normal mound of terrain to me.

Pretty sure there is life on Mars just not anything bigger then a microbe. That would be amazing though if intelligent aliens were on Mars...

Well if the consensus is normal terrain, I'll take a mod deletion on this thread. (Sorry!)

No reason to get anyone overly excited, until the images get better, or I turn out wrong. In which case, I'm cool not making a thread.

Not "striking", not "giant", not "pyramid" and not "structure", so I'm afraid that's a "no" from me, sadly.

I suppose I am mistaken.

I'd delete the post, but I can't. I guess I'll just sit here, wrong and as disinterested as everyone else.

You asked a question and accepted the answer. This is far better than being given a good explanation and then continuing to insist on a wrong explanation, or pretending you hadn't seen the answer at all which is what usually happens.

If you don't ask you don't find out

Oh NO! You are on the internet and you are wrong!

Yeah, I'm not seeing anything pyramid shaped in the photos

When one is proven wrong, that means that *something* has been proven true.

Having things proven true is a great thing. It adds to human knowledge.

My fondest wish is that all our favored theories might be proven wrong..
including my own.

Think of how wonderful it would be, to gain all those true results?

Now mind you, 'truth' is usually boring...

You know... humans are animals... animals die... we have no
cosmic destiny.. nobody else in the Universe cares if we live
or die.. or suffer... you know that sort of thing.

But becoming an adult and becoming willing to accept reality
without having to hide within fanciful delusions.. is a wonderful
thing none-the-less.

The real test is to see how it fits in with the rest of the landscape. It may look anomalous in a single image, but if you can find a Gigapan of the general area, you'll probably find that it is only one in a series of ordinary mounds that are common in that area.

It's nice that the camera uplink seems to be working again, though.

What were they hiding all the time they were "working on the computers?" Something "they" didn't want us to "see?"

Yay! Let's party! I'll provide the balloons and vodka.

You've just made the leap from "Boring" to "Wonderful". Boringly wonderful? Or wonderfully boring?

I'd say fanciful beliefs are like the Arts - even if artificial or delusional, they decorate and enrich our existence beyond staring into an uncaring abyss from a creative-free, imagination-free, barren landscape.

Plus, of course, they just MIGHT be true after all.

I promote being an adult first, then SURE jump in and
have fun.

And yes... there is anomalous stuff...

plenty of it.

The issue is that the 'real anomalous stuff' is all in a narrow
field of expression in the world..

So..... if one puts being an adult first.. then you have to
'debunk' some 99% of all the stuff on ATS..

and then wonder when someone will come along and debunk
the 1% you find unassailable personally.

*shrug*

It's the way it works.

Someday, large parts of biology, chemistry and physics
will be unrecognizable too.

Wise advice.

Also wise words. A lot of that 99% is fascinating in terms of pure storytelling and human psychology. Eg, the thread about that 1940 UK 'abduction' case of Robert Hall - I found it enthralling to study and hugely enjoyable to write up, even if one needs a wagon-load of mountainous salt to consider it a genuine experience. Great characters, though, and curious little details that stimulate the imagination.

Honestly, I wasn't trying to be Jimmy Roberts.

I just thought this object looked a certain way, very blatantly, but I seem to be alone.


Interesting response behavior from users on this board though.

Is there some sort of alert system for new thread posts on this board?

Just trying to figure out why there were 3-4 people who detracted my post within the first hour at 6:30AM EST.

Then responses died/hit a rate of about 1 per hour after.

Can I cross post that, to the conspiracy board?
