So this is a natural rock on mars with a flat bottom and a 90 degree angle?

I found this on spirits nav cam...That is not natural right? I have also noticed how "scorched" some of the rocks are are in the background...It seems like something blew up.

The bottom can hardly be deemed flat when it can't be seen, and though it may look close to a 90 degree angle, unless you went up there with a protractor you are still jumping to a bit of a conclusion.

While it looks interesting, and I would love to see proof of some civilization on Mars, It appears to be any other rock, it's finer details washed out a bit due to its coloration compared to the rest of the image.

Also. what the heck is up with the rover tracks all over it. Bored operator try to jump it?

That is definitely an interesting looking rock!
Nice find

All that money for the Spirit rover and no protractor?

It doesn't look unnatural at all. I've seen natural rocks like that in nature plenty of times. Unless there's more definitive evidence to your hypothesis that something blew up... they're just rocks.

I completely agree, it IS pretty cool looking though.
Likely warn down by the biga** martian sandstorms, one side facing into the direction of the prevailing wind....that would explain why the top of it has a slope to it.

Rocks can form in some pretty crazy patterns. Here's some that are are pretty neat..

The other rocks do look like something blew up. That's a strange mixture of rocks that none individually looked strange to me.

Do the patterns match when you lay one image over the other? If the images are meant to be portraying underground cities, or even old ruins, then it would lend more credence to the theory if they overlapped perfectly as I imagine they would if they were taken of a city on Earth.

If this thread is still alive, does anyone have a comment on why the rocks in the background are "scorched" but this rock seems to be un touched.

Natural rocks can have the most amazing geometrical shapes. Just look at these fantastic basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption, at Giants Causeway in Ireland!

I don't know why you are looking at that flat one when the two closest rocks have something that looks like it has been marked to be cut. A 90 degree mark right next to the solar panels on the right side.
