Just 8 Megapixel? You would think if they send another rover to mars, they would put a cam on that bad boy that exclipses the one on my f*cking cellphone.

They should send every politician, including Ron Paul's son to MARS, they can ask Martians to vote for their lies, and leave us alone. That would have been a great twist of this mission, "ooh wait, there's more, we sent a cargo full of politicians, and here they are taking their first step to MARS and never allowed back to earth". Tad Tad Taaaaaaaaaaaa

It depends what the main objective of this mission is.

Is it to capture beautiful high resolution photos?

This line again? You'd think if you're replying to a thread you would have actually read the entire thing before posting. I'll save Phage from this one...

Anyway, this is a tremendous achievement for NASA. I get goosebumps when I watch the video of all them celebrating. Really looking forward to the coming pictures, video, and science we are going to be learning from this rover.

Actually each mastcam has a 2 megapixel sensor. And each does eclipse your phonecam.

This provides the capability to obtain images with a scale of 7.4 centimeters per pixel at 1 km distance, and about 150 microns per pixel at 2 meters distance.

No.
Try reading sometime. You might learn something.

Each Mastcam uses a Bayer Pattern Filter CCD to obtain natural color pictures of a quality just like that of consumer digital cameras.

I cant believe people fall for this crap.

There is no "remote control car" on mars. There is no mission, no aliens, no pictures, no "flawless landing", no breakthrough. In all likely-hood...there may not even be a Mars.

TPTB is just taking advantage of our imagination and running with it. Wake up

ARE WE SURE? After all NASA is a government entity and you KNOW how those bastards lie all the time, I mean it's pathological! I just assume (from decades of previous experience) that whatever these bastards say is a lie. Come on guys for cripe sakes this is a conspiracy web site, no one has said that this thing was faked by now? HOLD YOUR TIN FOIL CLAD HEADS DOWN IN SHAME!!!

the other rover that landed along with Curiosity on the opposite side of Mars is the military version with 24mp and in color with Near Light Speed transmission..lol:

So all those people involved in this program, spent YEARS on getting everything right, spent thousands, put months and months of hard work into it, just to just put on a show for us?

Yeah right

if you have read all the posts, you would know why there isnt any colored pictures yet. Is it really that hard to do some research nowadays? a few clicks here, some letters typed in here, and boom. Its not that hard.

The small b/w pictures you are seeing are from the rovers HazCam. They are just designed to help see where the rover is going and avoid any hazards. The good juicy color pics will come from the mastcams that he linked to you.

What? So you think there is one camera on Curiosity? Brilliant.
Congratulations on your wonderful demonstration of ignorance.

You are correct. All the people celebrating in the below video are in on it. Some of them dedicated 10 years of their life just so we can all be fooled about sending a rover to Mars. /sarcasm
