This is a closeup of that original image, where the "handle" doesn't look as much like a handle:

There is light coming through where the handle is.
So if it is a rock, its a rock with a handle.
No, there's no light coming through.
If there was we would see the shadow of the handle on the cup's surface on the areas the handle connects to the cup, and we do not see that. What I think we are seeing is some kind of "bas relief" on that rock's surface, so we see the shadow inside that lower area.
Here's the original NASA image.
Apparently New Zealand doesn't stay in the same place on the map, according to the internet, so it might be a hard target to hit. Might be easier to actually land on Mars.

Well if there on Australia, how come we rarely see boomerangs just laying about? Obviously cant be in Australia or there would be boomerangs everywere. Maybe that particular rover landed in newzealand or Nevada or something.

This thread is giving me depression.
There are better finds on Mars than this.
It's difficult to scour the images now, because JPL decided to "update the curiosity image page to be more web 2.0ey!"
All they did was screw it up, for consecutive image viewing.
They slowed down my workflow of looking through the images, to the point that I gave up on it.
If there are some secrets there, that they did this to help obscure... You can keep your secrets NASA, I don't care.
you can go through the images sol by sol. You can click on some of the images to make them bigger.

You are full of it!! There is no such thing as “microfilm” and how would we recognize alien technology if it is truly alien?!?!!
