Don't think for a second we'll have any real facts, even when the main camera comes out i guarantee all photos will be atleast color-shopped 1st displaying things they want us to see only.

Ok. I guess you'll have no reason to look at them or comment on them then.


I've already given some juicy fruits, what you do with it is up to you. I'm speaking from experience, from the lies & the truth, getting to the truth though that is the thing, you have to dig through the mud to see the light. know one thing though, the cover up is beyond huge - it is out of this world.

While all is speculation until proven, i see some wanting science well can anyone explain this picture from mars to me i'd like to be enlightened. I've even left the CO so you can look on Google Mars for yourself.



Thank you. I was waiting for this.

Ok then.
In that case I'll be sitting on the edge of my seat for you to reveal all the photoshopping.
Is your name Skipper?

Hey my name is skipper.... How? WTF??? but no seriously "Skipper"? I am confused Phage... Well I am often confused. At least my wife is always telling me that... I guess this guy is claiming to be in on some knowledge the rest of us don't have... It is probably some kind of inside joke right?

This is an amazing feat, I love the fact that we have a robot on another planet in our solar system. I for one can hardly wait to see the pics that are to come

I can't wait until we can actually put people up there. Then build a colony... Then who knows.. on to other worlds. Unless we destroy ourselves before that happens. Which is probably likely. We will probably go further backwards before we can go very far forward.

Well i don't Photoshop for one, I'm not above anyone because i may know something, you may know something i don't does that make you better than me? no. I do have some other information yes but the sources can be all verified and backed up. I'd never say here is a image if there was no source, you want photo shopping go to youtube plenty with and imaginary spirit but some truth in their also.

Congrats for reverse engineering alien UFO technology and covering it up all this time.


Watch how the craft moves upwards after dropping the rover

After about 45 minutes reading up this entire thread on my phone, I must say regardless if NASA stands for (Never A Straight Answer) they did a pretty good job with Curiosity and how they accomplished the smooth landing of it.

Now, I can’t wait for those new images and hopefully see Mars in a way it has never been presented to us before!

Thanks to those who have maintained their posture and corrected/guided this thread to get back on track a few times due to trollers!

I was extremely happy that the landing was a success. I remember watching shows about this years ago describing how they went through various ideas and designs on how to land the thing, seeing as it was so large and heavy compared to the other rovers.

I remember one show, which detailed 3-4 ideas they had to safely land it, showed the final one they used with the overhead frame suspending and lowering the rover and I remember thinking to myself "well, I bet they won't be using that one! Looks way to complicated!"

Then upon viewing shows about it in the future hearing they decided on that method, still thinking it wouldn't work. I've never been more happy to be proven wrong.

This just shows the incredible things we are capable of. NASA's budget is TINY compared to what it could be, and they are still able to land this (relatively) huge rover on Mars, an entirely different planet. The amount of stuff this rover can do compared to the others is awesome. I can't wait until a few years passes and our understanding of Mars dramatically increases thanks to Curiosity.

So many people here on ATS constantly bash the government, scientists, NASA, etc. Well, I for one will congratulate NASA and all the people that put countless hours of hard work into making this program a success.

Next time you think about bashing NASA and accusing them of having no idea how planetary physics and space works, this about this. If they didn't know what they were doing, there would be no way they could manage to successfully get such complicated and fragile machinery to another planet. Not once, not twice, but several times.

I hope Curiosity is able to live at least as long as it's other Martian brothers, such a long life would no doubt drastically increase our knowledge of Mars.

Are you speaking about internet sources? Because everything you read on the internet is true right? In that case I am six feet tall... I have chiseled abs... An eight pack to be exact. I have five black belts. I caught a twelve pound bass, a hundred pound catfish, and a four hundred pound Yellowfin Tuna last time I went fishing (all on one cast BTW)... Oh yeah those Dos XX commercials... That guy is me... Its on the internet now so it must be true.

What I would really like to know is:

A. On the video above, it seemed they were still celebrating whilst curiosity transmitted a picture (first picture) back to HQ............How long does it take to receive a photo...........not long it seems?

B. Does Curiosity have any attached message from Earth on-board?

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?

mars.jpl.nasa.gov...


didn't see any color in those..

have they taken any color pictures at all??

The video above is highly edited.
It currently takes about 14 minutes for the datastream containing an image to reach earth due to lightspeed limitations. Since the initial images were very low resolution the upload time was very short.
