No, sorry. What I meant was, do you think there is a message embedded on the curiosity just in case of "Other beings" encountering the craft/vehicle? I know they sometimes attach plates to these things "Just in case". Or is this a complete dream of mine?

well..

life on earth would be MUCH better if we could just find it through all the freaking lies and deceptions..

anways.. so .. we find life on Mars, (which basically means the elment called H2O).............then what?? we find rocks and mountains.. then what ?

More tax payer $$$ for a project we could be dumping into our economies for science, industry and infrastructure and makeing the world a better place to live besides the S***hole that we ravaged by the trash we leave behind from out consuming.

Even if life exists on mars there will always be the doubters, skeptics no matter how much proof is shown. Then there are the ones with hidden agendas to persuade others away from the truth back into the mud, these are the types who like all to be good sheep who don't stray from their pens.

Pareidolia is not proof. Overzooming images and applying "filters" is not proof. Claiming airbrushing is not proof.
What else ya got? Any science?

I was speaking in general not to anyone in particular, regarding the material i've sent here no filters have been applied, every pixel is intact i only zoomed up on the area in question to show more clearly the right angles of the possible structure and the two vertical lines. Notice i never said hey look this is proof, this is a structure. As for Pereidolia this can only apply to those who see something then claim it to be 100% so without any real hard evidence.

This really is an amazing feat. What will be more amazing is when we have a joint interntional mission to either Mars or some of the moons around Jupiter and Saturn. Hope I live long enough to see it

No, it applies to thinking there may be a structure when there is none.

Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant.

en.wikipedia.org...

What you think may be a structure is dust on the protective lens cover.

The image is distorted due to the short focal length of the lens

here is an example.



The problem on here is that many members have little or no understanding of photography and how things like focal length of the lens can effect the image seen.

Thats why we have so many BS threads on here from members that don't have a clue and think they see something!

The main reasons the tech seems "old" is that it has to A: be hardened against direct sun light and charged particles while also surviving extreme conditions, B: last a long time and to not fail as parts cannot be repaired or replaced and C: bandwidth constraints.

8MP is more then enough with the right sensors for the main cam, and 720p video will be absolutely amazing to watch. The reason the hazard cams are black and white and of low resolution is to primarily conserve battery life.

So anybody want to chime in on these artifacts on the far right? I was watching the live feed and when they first showed this photo everyone in the room went "woooooow" .

Then in the questions section, a lady asked Adam (One of the team members) what the secret was he said he'd tell her. Little coincidental?

Is that the BEST they could do? Why is everything NASA shows us, in black-n-white??? I mean, REALLY???? Come on now. Did they forget to load a DIGITAL CAMERA?
This is what i think of that picture:
Sometimes, i think NASA is just full of "space junk".

Mars doesn't have color either? Can they show us a planet, with color.....besides our own? hahahahahah The moon is black-n-white....Mars is black-n-white....space seems DULL. lol EMPTY. lol Oh wait, space is empty.

I've seen better pics from amateur astronomers. BOOOOOOOORIIIIIIING. Shame on NASA....for wasting taxpayers money. What are we living in, the 40's? WHERE IS THE COLOR???

So, you tellin' me....they forgot the windshield wipers? I mean, what a bunch of IDIOTS, NASA is. These people are the brightest minds, in the world; and they forgot to add a way, to keep the lenses clean?
And you want me to believe we landed on the moon?

These are just the hazard cameras in the front and the back of the rover to make sure it didnt land on anything damaging.

The REAL camera is yet to be put into place.

This camera will be color photo along with panoramic style imaging.

So not to be rude.

But hold your horses. The best has yet to come!


The best has yet to come? Maaaaaaaan, how do you even know that's Mars??? Yeah, i'm VERY skeptical these days. There's always an AGENDA behind everything these people do; and we are NOT part of "their" AGENDA!!! This will benefit us, in no way, shape or form. So, WHAT'S THE POINT???

i just wanted to give people on here, another chance to read what you said. We care more about "out there" than we do "in here". WE ARE PATHETIC. This is no feat......this is USELESS CRAP! Who cares about Mars....when we live on EARTH; and EARTH is being destroyed, by the same people checkin' out Mars. It's like...who cares about Iraq, when we live in America. Something is SERIOUSLY wrong with us.
