Well then you can't call it a mushroom then.

That's an earth word.

The Mars word for it is hematite spheres.



To be fair, "hematite spheres" are earth words too
In fact, all words are earth words. But that's neither here nor there.

I say this is a Martian turd!

Another pic from the gallery show it is some type of pebble leaning against another. Would be cool if it was a real mushroom could help us understand better how we might be able to sustain life in different atmospheres..

I Asked some VRIL to go and have a look, it sure is a strange thing:

It is amazing how mushroom spores will be transported and grow in strange places. If it is a mushroom, it came from one of our vehicles. Nasa admited to me personaly that they do not fully sterilize the things they send there.

Thats why i did sent some VRIL members!

And added to their info I took into account the relative size known due to the shadow size off the mushroom compared to those of the ground. .

What kind of scope would be needed to resolve Mars similar to the moon in order to identify features a few KM across?

Mars is 57,936,384 kilometers away....so it would have to be huge, and it would have to be in space, as the background radiation and our atmosphere would distort the image so much it would just be a blur.

I dont know if the hubble is capable of something like this? Im pretty sure it isnt but i will check it out whilst i drink a nice cup of tea

It's not the blueberry you should be looking at, but rather the odd markings that kind of look like paint brush strokes. If anything those look like traces of something like bamboo leaves.

That is erosion from sand being blown over them for millions of years

ATS Thread - The Dirt on Mars' Soil: More Suitable for Life Than Thought

It appears the possibility of it being a mushroom might not be that far off lol.

But there is no atmosphere....or very little left.
So the planet is bombarded with all sorts of nasty rays and radiation.
If the average temperature is -55 but reach as low as -200 it would be fairly difficult to harbor life. Look at the poles on our planet, very little life there and we have an atmosphere to protect us.

Im not saying impossible, just highly improbable.

haha probably not...but you will be able to see loads of other cool stuff
You can see mars, but it will probably be a small red dot...but still pretty cool looking out into space me thinks.

I think if i had a telescope id be using it every night gazing at nebula, and the bigger planets in our solar system...ive never bought one because of the light pollution near me, i think id be lucky to see the moon haha

Well, weve found bacterial / plant life at the bottom of the ocean in pressure that would kill a human. We have found life near volcanic vents where the water is boiling, and weve found bacterial life in the Antartic where it would kill a human.

Id say they are better suited that humans are for life in the galaxy. I dont want to be so quick to dismiss anything, since we barely know about Earth, let alone Mars.

We must break this mindset that life is only what we know it to be, and can only be present in an enviornment with certain criteria. The criteria we use is earth based, and since the Earth is but one dot in the cosmos, logic tells us that setting preconditions on what we know, wont adequately show us what we dont know.

We are to quick to dismiss when we dont understand the how is it possible question.
