Yup. Not there.
But that's the "washed out" image. Let's see what we see (if anything) when we get some new images with a better Sun angle.

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

I don't see the wheels in a forward position.

You really don't believe it's the same image? Did you see the description for the rear hazcam image? The same thing was done.

It was taken through a "fisheye" wide-angle lens but has been "linearized" so that the horizon looks flat rather than curved. The image has also been cropped.

The newest robotic resident of Mars, Curiosity, has sent a spectacular image of its main scientific target, Mt. Sharp, a three-mile-high mountain in the center of Gale crater.

You may be interested in what the photo department for NASA had to say before they were tired and went to sleep.

Here are the original full size images (much better quality) from the rear hazcams (both left and right), showing the outline of something in the distance:








Remember to click the image so that you can 'zoom' on the image.

After reading this thread I have come to a few conclusions

1. Some of you don't like to read, but you look at the pictures for sure!
2. Some of you read, but can't comprehend.
3. There are some sane posters who have contributed and thankfully saved this thread from becoming complete chaos.

That being said, I'm very excited about Curiosity and can't wait to see what develops over the next few weeks.

Well, getting tired of making all these edits, but here:



I would have figured the wheels would be facing straight forward when it landed, like in this image:



If these are front and rear cams then what some of you were saying about the object with right angles a while ago is false and in fact it doesn't appear in two images.

Did you get those pictures from the NASA website? If so yes they're bigger but have had details blurred out in the background. To clear it up, the first photos they had a few minutes after landing had higher details when zoomed. The new ones seem to have had the two distinct lines blurred out in the background.

I'm wondering now if it is dust on the dust cover.
I don't know the details but if the cover was over both lenses...

There four hazcams. Two in front, two in back. The "thing" appears in both rear hazcam images.
The front hazcams show the mountain. The rear hazcams don't.

My thoughts exactly. I'm guessing there is a protective screen that is shared by both lenses.

It was to be expected... Black & white photos followed by... let me guess... brown colorized ones.

No. By full color images.
But you're too lazy to learn anything about it so you will remain ignorant.

Oh, all the ones I've seen looked like they were from the same camera.

Still, now that I brought it up I'm kind of interested that the wheels on the front(?) cam are positioned that way. It does kind of seem like the rover turned. Is that just the way it landed? I would have figured they would be locked in the forward position or something until they got it all up and running.

Maybe they just tested the rear wheel motors or something. I'm not trying to hint at a conspiracy here, just curious that's all.

You know they did this on a stage in the desert, right??



So we can send a small craft to explore mars surface, but we cant find a way to stabalize our economy... Strange, right??? Its easier to go to another planet.....***SIGH***

Interesting. I can't wait to see what comes next. Very interesting. I know there's so much science going on and data that we're going to get but...it is in large part...all about the pictures!
