Or, if they are, that NASA is somehow altering the pictures they are sending back?

Yes, I can imagine an astrophysicist standing in a field somewhere with a toy remote control trying to make it control a rover on mars.
Erad3, for the sake of trying to not go completely off topic here, you do realise that a controller used to drive a RC car is nothing like the way they would operate the rovers on Mars right?

OK, though not easy to understand I got what the OP was on about LOL.
Bit of a silly topic yes, but had an easy answer IMO based up the lack of argument in the OP's post.
No big deal so why the fuss? seen alot worse posts of recent on ATS, this one made me laugh a bit to be honest.

Why do you believe it to be impossible, getting objects too mars isn't the really hard part, its getting people there.
I don't unnderstand why you think its possible to comunicate over a planet but some how impossible in space ? Why is it not possible too maintain a comunications link, its not that hard with enough power, equipment and time.

It's one thing to get probes to distant locations, it's another to get humans there.
