Arr yes all is speculation until proved
One thing i find extremely odd is the original picture from the landing has now been edited by nasa, i've check on there website and the two distinct vertical lines have been blurred out i guess it would of been hard to blur out the main image on the horizon because then it would be too obvious. But i can assure you they have edited the image which makes it even more interesting.

Oooh interesting. I haven't seen the other image with the 'object' of interest yet. You have a link for that one? Have you (or anyone else) got a link for the most up to date images?

It took me less than one minute to confirm the date is correct, and to verify it. Wow, some of you guys type one search phrase into Google, say you come up with nothing and call that research... interesting.

REBEL V


You'll have to forgive my incompetence. Could you suggest what I should type into Google, to attain these 'well established facts', or even better, provide a link for imbeciles like myself?

Thanks.



EDIT: Thanks for the above link Phage!

Uhm, yea, I just spent 2.5 billion on a space mission to Mars, the last of my concerns is getting my images back in a timely manner. I want crisp and clear, the highest resolution possible, and I'll even wait extra time to get them. That chunk of change they spent is a one time deal.

The only proof they have ARE the images. The rest is he said/she said. Why skimp on one of the most important aspects of the mission?

That doesn't make sense to me.


Yes because NASA spent 2.5 billion dollars so they can send back pretty pictures of mars.


Can you please explain what scientific benefit would a higher than 8MP camera give us?

No.
It has front hazcams and rear hazcams.
Curiosity has not moved and it probably won't for at least a week.

I was just trying to show that the camera(s?) were facing the same angle.

Look at the wheels... looks like they moved.



If this is a the rear camera and in fact the rover didn't move, then you guys are talking about a different artifact/hill/whatever.

Now if only Curiosity was at Cydonia that would be amazing site to see !
but it will never happen will it



They cant expose somthing like that Earth is Not ready for it,,,

as religion will refect it ..

or just maybe Nasa already has Done so....

showing those Ancient Structures amd the base of the Mars face
let alone the Markers around the Face...
that nobody seem to notice nor Care

and it would be also nice to see somthing like Curiosity
landing in the northern polar region where there is claimed Flora ( plant life ) existance
that is claimed by a Few ...

as the whole Solar Sytem is Warming Up fro Our Haywired Sun
and the Methane on Mars is getting more and more exposed
who knowns what a Curiosisty like Vehicle would Find ..

Mm ok i see... so if the camera is facing the same angle how did that object totally disappear on the horizon, it seems strange dust would form right angles, straight line and would meet up with the horizon perfectly.

Just checked out those pictures Phage, and it does indeed appear in the right and left rear hazcam images.

Certainly looks like an interesting feature to explore, and cuts quite a distinctive shape against the background.

The way the sides of the object appear to rise abruptly from the ground suggests to me at least, that it isn't a 'normal' hill or mound.

Man, most of your are excited as hell!
I envy you guys, seriously. I used to get goose-bumps reading about the other rovers and what they might find.
This time around...for some reason I just don't care at all.

I'm not waiting for pictures of rocks to travel millions of miles to my computer screen.
I guess I'm expecting nothing to come from this. I also think it's a huge waste of money and time. (like the entire space program for that matter.)

We'd probably have flying cars and HD television in our contacts if it wasn't for NASA spending mucho deniro
on trying to get to these lifeless barren wastelands.

Meh...hopefully we see E.T waving at our cameras. MAYBE that will make up for the losses.

Look at the wheels... they moved.

No, that image has been distorted to reduce the fisheye effect. This is the original. You can see the shadows in the foreground are identical.

Here is the full resolution image from the rear hazcam:



linky


The 'object' isn't visible in this image though? They have removed the fisheye effect, and have cropped the image, but by my reckoning, if there was something there, it should be visible in this image?

So how did that move the wheels from a forward position to nearly a 90 degree angle?

Is that it's default position?

Sorry for all the questions, you might not know anymore than I do.

First off: HELL YEAH SCIENCE!
Secondly: Is it geeky of me that the first thing I thought was "Heh, bet they'll find Prothean artifacts..." (Mass Effect Series)

But really, this is freaking-fan-tastic! I am excited to see what they find ^_^
