Wow, some of you guys are seriously trying to see things.

Have you guys EVER looked at earth rocks? Obviously if you look hard enough you will see just about anything. I have some pictues of rocks in the distance when I was living in Arizona. I'm sure if I wanted to I could see Tim Allen's foot in one of them.


Sorry if I sound harsh, but this "Do you see a face?" "Is that an alien hole?" "Could that be my mother?" sort of stuff is just downright laughable.
Take it easy guys, see with your eyes and not with your imaginations.

First off I have to agree with Seven. You look for something hard enough, and you will eventually see it. Even if it's not there......my uncle has a rock on his farm that looks exactly like a human face..........is it really a human face carved out of stone, or is it there because we are looking for it.
On a seperate note, I was perusing the many photos and what I noticed on the first few panoramics is the size of the sun. It looks REALLY, REALLY big. I would have thought, being farther from the sun that ourselves, it would appear smaller...........

On the way down, the parachute collected some sort of vapor which condensed to a liquid. The liquid was trapped under the parachute and interacted with the Martian dirt and formed a mud like substance. As the parachute was pulled in, the damp mud-like substance was seen mimiking the pattern of the weighted parachute.

I wondered the same thing as you when I looked at that picture yesterday. Must be something of great importance.

A) Ancient martian monuments exposed to the surface would be long eroded... c'mon. The only thing they'll find on this mission is more detailed soil analysis. The rover won't travel far, and sure as heck won't be digging very deep.

B) These are rocks. My daughter has been in love with a tiny 3/4" rock that she found in the yard and swears it has a mouth and dimples for eyes. You see what you want. I can't wait til the rocks are seen from a different angle and/or at a different time of day. Maybe then the "heads" will turn from reptillian to George Bush's... whatever would we do then?

I looked at the stars the other night and I swear I saw Pam Anderson's chest in the southern hemisphere.


As for the Mars rock. Wow! I have seen so many faces there...I think we have discovered the lost Face People!

All seriousness aside though...people do see what they want. It has been happening since the beginning of man.
Cloud shapes...do we believe that the Air People made them?

Yep. Mars has lots of volcanos. Volcanos produce (tadaaa!) volcanic glass, and lots of it. You can find good examples of this at any modern active volcano or at old inactive volcanos (just ask around for sites where the rock "obsidian" is found. That's old volcanic glass.)

Well people can see what they want but that rock looks sharply cut to me, look at those edges!

You don't see that all the time in nature and not in a place like that away from other rock.

furthermore, how much erosion would occur on the surface of Mars anyways? this is still an issue of contention here isn't it

There has been a lot of rocks talked about.... which one again?

I don't know about anyone else but I was talking about the rock in the images at the top of this page.

Earth Venus Mars
N2 0.79 2 3 x 10-4
O2 0.20 < 0.001 10-7
Ar 0.01 0.005 2 x 10-4
CO2 0.0003 64 0.009
H2O ~ 0.02 ~ 0.01 ~10-6

Total 1.00 90 0.01

--------------------------
H2O 3 km 0.5 mm small
liquid
+ vapor

(A technical note: This is based on a pressure ratio of .0056/1, a surface gravity ratio of 0.38/1.0, and a mass per molecule ratio of 1.5/1.0 for Mars/Earth.)



As you can see Mars has a very thin atmosphere and those holes and strange erosion patterns that we are seeing could be caused by very small impacts from space debris or meteorites that burn up in our atmosphere.

I am not ruling out the possibiltie of water erosion just pointing out another possibility

I will never understand why some members are so critical of another member's observations.

As for the imaginative minds that saw a face in that stone, I saw the face as soon as the picture was posted.

ultra_phoenix, I think I found 10 but I'm questioning one of them! Thanks for posting!
