The best way to keep a secret is to put it right out in the open. Heat shields are usually more solid looking and use ablative technology, this thing looks more like an airship. The "heat shield" story could be a cover story for what's really going on. Many times in the past the press would be given a cover story: e.g. LBJ's "Manned Orbiting Laboratory for scientific studies" press conference announcement which was really a cover for manned space spying missions. This way government money can be openly given to "black" ops.

It looks like any other heat shield I have ever seen.

You may be right. I may be more used to seeing Apollo type heat shields like the one below:




But Lockheed's new heat shield for the next mars rover looks more like the Boeing picture:




But I still believe that some government programs with ulterior purposes are given mundane sounding objectives.

Plausable. How probable is solely dependent upon the individual.

This is a naughty second line that must be whipped like the wretch it is.

It's not photoshopped. That's my old lady checking for damage. I hit a few houses flying home after a rough night of drinking.
