That's possible, it happens all the time.
You keep going on about IR cameras and such, but you fail to realize that Earth humans, 99% of us whom pay taxes into this boondoggle, wish to
know the truth.
No, I never spoke of IR cameras, now you are the one not understanding.
Each of the two panoramic cameras has eight filters that show different wavelengths/colours. The left camera has one clear filter (it shows a real
greyscale version of what we would see on Mars), an infrared filter, a red filter, an orange filter, a green filter, a blue filter, a violet filter
and an ultraviolet filter. The right camera has an ultraviolet filter and seven infrared filters.
And no, I don't fail to realize that many humans want the truth, I am one of those (although my taxes don't go to NASA, as far as I know).
And if playing with the colors cannot give you a decent 'true color' photo from these over priced uber cameras, than why not take a 30$
normal camera as well? Since we the public paid for it, and since we deserve and seek the truth about Mars, we should be allowed to see basic normal
You don't need to play with the colours, you just need to understand what the photos show and understand that using the wrong
colours for the red, green and blue channels of an RGB image will not show you a natural looking image.
Also, lets say I posted a photo of my backyard on ATS, and the sky was red. Because I messed with the coloring and stuff right?
mean one like this?
Sidney has blue skies, but when there's enough sand in the air it looks orange, like Mars.
Now why would you want to defend a cult of charletans is beyond me. But suit yourself...
I am not defending anyone, I am trying to
show is that the problem is that people do not understand what they are looking at and accuse NASA of faking the photos. They may fake them, but those
colours do not prove it, and the fact that the scientists prefer to send cameras that will show the most data possible instead of just showing nice
photos looks logical to me.
