Originally posted by Bangin I will never understand why some members are so critical of another member's observations.
Logic is also important in an analysis. Given the size and angle of these pictures, it's obvious that we're seeing some rocks pretty close to the lander/rover... so the dimensions of the rock would be inches, not feet... and possibility of the rock being a fallen Easter Island styled statue is exceptionally remote... and the probablity that it's a random shape very high.

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

I'm not trying to slam peoples observations - but rocks have irregular shapes, many flew around the solar system for billions of years, colliding with others, and certainly some erosion occurred over time (dust storms - the product of WIND, are reportedly spotted on mars (csep10.phys.utk.edu.... Plus, exactly how large ARE these rocks we're seeing?

If you don't think this face is of any importance then say so, but continuously ridiculing other members is absurd.

I see a face in the rock. I do not think it's significant. Ah, I feel much better.

As I found the 11 faces myself, I guess I'm pretty good.
Also, I found a skull and a 12th face. So there are 13 faces.


Try to find these extras.

He he, that's an interesting face picture. I did get all 11 within a few seconds, I have to say I thought I was doing it wrong!

I don't think these pictures will reveal any strange rock patterns or artifacts, it looks like a lifeless place to be honest, one step worse for life than the south pole.

For those with good connections, there's a 67 meg tiff of the area including 'Sleepy Hollow'.
I'm downloading it at the moment, I can't wait to see what's in this one.

I guess putting the link in would have helped.

What's the best program to view these images in? Windows picture viewer isn't doing it for me, it's a bit annoying.

I see one right above number 8, too.
Try IrfanView. It's the best free picture viewer/converter/light editor ever, I think. I once opened a 480M picture of the WTC. It took forever, but it did it.

The rumours abound such as does Mars really have an atmosphere? Some are claiming that NASA is delibertly making the photos red because in fact the sky is bluish due to slight oxygen atmosphere there and they wish to hide it from us?

Then this weird picture, did not some lifeform check out our little probe or is that idea too far out?

Let us see a picture that zooms out in that direction.


I thought The sjy was blue here on Earth not because we have an oxygen rich atmosphere but because due to our planet being 70% coverec in water the atmospehere reflected the predominant covering of the planet, this would make sense in teh case or Mars as well, for if it is predominately a red soiled planet even with pockets of water the sky would be red, as this is the dominant planetary covering.
...just a thought...

If the Martian atmosphere were to be completely cleansed of dust, the daytime sky would appear blue, just as our own sky because of Rayleigh scattering by the molecules (primarily carbon dioxide molecules) which make up the atmosphere.

There is also a face right above the # 8 face that was not circled.
