Could it just be an exposure of a crystal formation? Mayhaps at one time there were suffice elements (material, pressue etc) to make a large structure?

I never said I believed this image, or any others. So far as i am concerned, NASA has been altering images of everything from the start.
I am taking this as permission to call you a nutcase and will refer and and all moderator actions to this post as your okay to be labeled such.
If that makes me a nutcase, then so be it.
I have believed for several years that NASA doesn't tell the truth unless they have to or it suits their needs only. They don't care about science, they just care about funding. But like this image, and so many other more interesting features on mars and elsewhere, they will be brushed off and ignored so we can all watch dust devils on the Martian deserts.edit on 12-4-2012 by DragonFire1024 because: url
The explanation given is perfectly reasonable, scientifically sound, and technologically accurate.

I'm calling shennanegans until the source of the information is available as that article really is a mess. I don't have faith that some speculative comments weren't taken out of context to mean "OMG SUPER DINOS RULE THE UNIVERSE".
Then you probably already know my opinion, as I posted on that thread.

The object is some 4.5 to 5 metres long, and I think it's just one of the rocks that fell from the top of that slope.

This is the general area, with the object marked with a red circle (or more correctly, circumference )

I have seen in other photos from Mars other rocks like that, that look like large blocks, and in one of those photos it was visible an area that was breaking apart in block-like pieces.
