Looks like there are stairs on Mars!! And circular at that!

Really appreciate the pics, can't wait till we are able to interatct with the planet on a wide scope as opposed to merely observing it or interacting with it on a limited scale.
snf for you.

What happened to the usual red tint on nasa photos? They look much better with no editing.

Actually these are the true colors of mars, and I'm glad they got rid of that red tint. I did some research awhile back on that and the reason they wanted to have that tint filter on (as I suspected) is that they where afraid (and still are) that while viewing the landscape in true color they would see something or color that couldn't be explained so easily. Also by having that red filter on or done that way, it acts like an overexposure in a sense and if anything is seen it makes it hard to tell what it is or to be exact it makes it easier for them to say it's a shadow in a rock or its mineral deposits.
