Any one have any idea what the heck are in these pictures. Looks a bit unnatural to me. I guess one would say man-made?


Mars pics

Look at the ones labeled:

Spirit, Sol 236 10:24
9/1/2004

Spirit, Sol 263 12:07
9/29/2004

Anyone have any ideas?

most of the mechanical objects are equipment .. most rocks seem unnatural but in fact there volcanic and sorta like brittle rocks , the kinda rocks that would break easily

Feb. 9, '04 The round, shallow depression in this image resulted from history's first grinding of a rock on Mars. The rock abrasion tool on NASA's Spirit rover ground off the surface of a patch 1.8 inches in diameter on a rock called Adirondack. The hole is 0.1 inch deep, exposing fresh interior material of the rock for close inspection with the rover's microscopic imager and two spectrometers on the robotic arm. This image was taken by Spirit's panoramic camera, providing a quick visual check of the success of the grinding. Rock abrasion tools on both Mars Rovers supplied by Honeybee Robotics, N.Y.

Nice find, man.

I'm not sure if that is a part of something we built? Does anybody have a clue?

All of those photos are available on the official site, here.

Unfortunately, and for some unknown reason, it looks like he (or someone else) used all available images from the several filters used by the cameras to make those colour images, so we get a colour that is not the famous reddish colour of the NASA photos or the more earth-like colours of the "corrected" versions.

Very nice pictures. The one labeled for 9/1 caught me off guard, then I noticed the next pic and I believe the mark on the ground is from that part of the rover.

Thanks for sharing this. I am interested in the pictures under Opportunity on the dates 2/26/2006-10/06/2007. picture #Sol 929. What are those little beads everywhere? Are they rocks or is there anyone here who knows what they are?

You may mean the Martian Blueberries, formally known as Martian spherules. Some tend to surface with a stem, and look like mushrooms. Wiki doesn't have a good write up on them, maybe they have a link that is better in their references. I used to have several detailed links.

The rovers were equipped with small drills on them to shave off part of the surface to see whats below the exterior. There are some other picture that look like this and thats the explanation given.
