I don't think so, because it has no explosive element to it, it just gets power from radioactivity. I would assume the "fuel" is even contained in something that would make it less hazardous. A nuclear weapon spreads radioactive particles all around. These batteries just aren't meant to do that as far as I know, but I'm not a rocket scientist.

I guess you could turn it into a dirty bomb, but not a very effective one. Maybe one big enough to kill yourself and the rest of your cult. (if you all huddled around it)

That sucks. But hey it was worth asking.

Just trying to pass the time because this press conference is pretty boring IMO.

Some person wasted their valuble question asking " Are you now going to name your daughter Curiosity?"
Haha then finally 2 minutes later he finally said "No. I am Not"
But they did say they are in estimate of 500m from the base of the mountain. (not confirmed)

They should just raise the camera now. Im glued to the screen.
But as of now they are just making up questions as they go along.

Maybe, but its half life is like 30 years so they better get the ship ready to go get it, no time for R&D!

They land it in a barren place, yet again, and have no color or clear images? Really? In todays era?

Read something. You might learn something about what was and is expected from Curiosity.

OH, something that doesnt involve good pictures? Really? How very special. Its a freaking joke beyond and they deserve jail sentences on their huge fraud.

A friend says it looks like they landed in some dried up lake bed, only he doesnt think its mars. Advanced HP color film would be awesome though. And I could suggest some good spots to land too for that matter.

Don't worry. The space brothers will punish them in due time.

Did it land where NASA was aiming for ?

The landing spot actually plays a pretty big part in Curiosity's mission .

It takes time for color pictures because of the distance this # is being transmitted from.

The rover landed in a wide plain in a crater near the bottom of a mountain for satefy. They are expecting to learn something due to the geography of the exposed mountain.

Read something genius, you're giving a bad name to Canada. For god sakes google it.

The hazard cams are only 2 megapixels. there are 4 total placed side by side, two in the front and two in the back. They are there to watch out for hazards only really.

The main camera i believe to be 8 megapixels and will be deployed in the next couple of days.

Also the lens covers are still on the hazcams thus making it slightly blurry with dust on the lens cap.

Yea no crap, from somebody with 15k posts nonetheless. Me and others have been trying to explain this same simple thing for 3 pages. Maybe the fact that this is coming from MARS needs to be highlighted in the OP so people will get it.

If they can put a man on the moon surely they can use color HP. If its BW its not real. That is the opinion expressed by a friend and I second that notion.

Okay i am now very very very drunk and i no longer can see mars...but the pink elephants are great....But i agree with others that have said....the best is yet to come....It will take time for the images to come through in a reasonable fashion...also i am sure they will be doing a whole lot of instrumentation testing for a bit before we see to much....You know....blotting out the villages...removing the alien traffic lights from the scenes....and making sure the kids stay off the rover so that it does not get damaged.

Also if some alien race put a metric ton piece of equipment on this planet what would we do?

But this moment for now should be well celebrated....I was a kid watching the tele all night with he first moon missions and now i get to be a kid again watching this event unfold....cool....


Just give it at least a week till we start to derail the overall success of the mission.....the largest man made object has now landed on mars.
