There are floating planets out there mr. Ignorant.

We've been to every planet that we can land on in the solar system.

So why spend more money on things we have already done.

Thia is not a conspiracy thread its a thread about truth.

Add your input to one of those threads because you will just be laughed at here.

The only planet you've been to is Earth. How can you prove really anything without the help of NASA?

Maybe you are Mr. Ignorant for believing everything they dish out

A telescope?? LOL

Well if thats good enough for you, i cant argue.

Other humans may need a little more than just a one sided close up image of a reddish dot.

Why cant they strap a go-pro like camera on Curious George and bring back an HD Mars video?

They never will. Just crappy pictures with stuff blacked out. Like this:

If you land that monkey onto mars how are you going to get him off the planet? Teach him how to build his own rocket?

Looks like took copyright photos and changed them. Not one bit of surprise there to me.

Doesnt matter how many stars he has. I dont care how many stars or flags i get. Haha.

Did a human being, in the twenty first century, really write that? Wow. I'm actually floored, and disappointed, by the ignorance on display here...

Maybe I'm being unkind, and the poster was actually talking about Saturn?

HAHA right!

Im guessing its just a huge hologram projected into the atmosphere to make us believe stars, black holes, quasars , pulsars , white dwarfs, brown dwarfs, galaxies, nebulae, red giants , asteroids, comets, and planets are real.

But what hes saying is that they are not actually there!!!

Omg its the matrix now.

We all need to take that red pill. STAT!

so let me get this straight they blasted a spacecraft across a billions miles of space and through incredible feat of engineering delivered its payload through the planets fercious atmosphere, to safely release the rover to ground all so as to take a wideview photo of the australian desert. Its an impressive feat.

Who cares the fact is that we did do it. And its no where close to a billion miles. I think someones just jealous of america

Still looks like the Australian desert. Why not landed it somewhere where photos reveal something interesting, like glass tubes, artficial looking features, or near them areas which show what looks like trees of flowing water. No its always in the middle of barren landscape.

Because there is the fact that mars is a barren landscape.

And its no surprise that mars would look like earth. Its a rocky planet. Created in the same manner as in earth just many millions of miles away.

Because they did these things. However just because you find those things interesting does not mean scientists feel the same way. In this case the scientists noticed lots of excellent geological criteria, the area appears to have been very wet in the past and with exposed sedimentary layers. This will allow them to get an excellent understanding of Mars' history.

We need to be able to identify planets that could support life, so that we can locate them among exoplanet surveys. Hell it's plausible that within a century the first alien communication could have been carried out.

Scientists care more about the long term prospects of this than whether the first pictures are stunning. That's about the best explanation I can give.

whose paying for this expedition the scientists or the american taxpayer. Let the taxpayer have input and agreement on where they land these things after all its being funded by them.

What were you expecting, reptilians? You complete and utter balloon. I am pretty sure that the main objective is not just to beam back pretty images. To my understanding (And I have had my ears shut) is that they are going to look for presence of water, or past flowing water. And wouldn't it be excellent if they found evidence of past life, as in microscopic life rather than fat fingered humanoids expected by some, or penis monsters that finger curiosity (As discussed in another thread), or maybe there is still remaining life?? Who knows, give the thing a chance to get over the jet lag, very early days.

Areas that look like trees or flowing water? What are you on son, seriously? Can you keep me some though
edit on 18-8-2012 by OnionHead because: Penis monster fat finger

Personally I agree that it would be interesting to land it at the place with the "trees"

i mean look at that

I can't believe you'd make such a silly statement. There's a reason that we use experts you know? There are lots of things paid for by the taxpayer where the average person should have no input whatsoever.

Do you want your local nutjobs deciding they don't like the cost of all this 'water testing' and when was the last time anyone got sick from water anyway? Do you really want people without a proper understanding to be put in charge of important empirical projects?

Where is the British Rover landing on Mars?

Why do we have to do all the hard work?
