Thanks. I searched and the topic didn't show up when I had opened the thread.

Congratulations to the Curiosity Team and NASA and everyone involved. Truely it felt special to witness the broadcast of Curiosity Landing.

1. Shot for everytime someone says the word 'pyramid'
2. Shot for everytime someone mentions Richard C Hoagland
3. Shot for everytime someone crops and resizes a rock in photoshop and says it's a skull or fossil
4. Shot for everytime NASA reframe or recolor a photograph and a new thread is opened on ATS about it
5. Shot for everytime a person says they are dissappointed in the results
6. Down the whole bottle if we actually see a real alien


Richard C Hoagland cropped a rock in photoshop and said it was a skull, while opening a new thread about NASA reframing a photo of ATS members looking dissappointed in the results of the Mars pyramid.

Oh my! Didn't you ever put up, post, display etc.etc. pictures that AFTER you viewed them, you performed the removal process for maybe 10 different reasons? Oh wait, I know! NASA hoodwinks want to create some drama amongst all the viewers!

7. Texas Mickey for everytime someone gets excited about the meaningless missions to Mars.
8. Barrels for everytime NASA actually releases all the pictures they have to the public.
9. FREE ALCOHOL FOR ALL if we actually EVER get too see something that is interesting, or not explained away as DUST.

Kind of funny that the picture they used to show the detail of the chemcam is the all seeing eye on the dollar bill
haha....sneaky sneaky.

You mean like the Earth rise photo taken from the moon by Apollo 8?



Or do you mean like the photo of the Earth and Moon taken through the telescope on one of the Mars orbiters?



I'll take a six pack of Sam Adams Boston Lager. Thanks.

give it some time to do its job and we may well see something of interest well as long as you're not expecting pyramids and monoliths and could maybe get all geeked out over a microbe or 2

truth is a very interesting paper was just released on the formation of the mars blueberries but no one gives a crap

I think most of you are grossly underestimating the quality of the images and science work that is about to be sent forth from Mars.

The images we have now are merely the HAZARD CAMERA images. The camera is primarily designed to aid in navigation over terrain and to help avoid obstacles. The reason we don't have better images yet (and boy will they be better) is because it's going to take some time, maybe a few days, to 'unpack' the other cameras from their positions they were set in to protect them inflight.

Just wait people, you ain't seen nothin yet!

They would have to read and actually be interested to know whats going on but they will complain and whine and find a new thread to complain and whine on whthout reading anything.

It does make them look rather silly or maybe stupid yeah thats it they look STUPID!

black and white !!!???

We had colored photos in 1908.....!!!

Think about that.......

And today in 2012 we have .....black and white photos...

We spend billions and trillions on this tech......and not one person can come up with a colored photo.

Oh FFS. I just answered that above.

And they are talking about the images and why we only have B/W on the livestream now:

A few hours ago, NASA's HiRISE team announced that it had acquired an image of Curiosity during its epic descent to the Martian surface. That image has originally scheduled to be released at NASA's morning press conference, scheduled for 9:00 am PT, but Spaceflight 101 and Discover magazine are reporting that the image of Curiosity has been leaked. Here is that image, which shows the rover descending toward the surface of the planet via its massive supersonic parachute:

It shouldn't feel manufactured to me but it does. Russia has failed so many Mars missions they shouldn't even be launching anything into orbit. It's honestly very strange to me.

I just feel with all of the observations we have of Mars if there was life there we would know already. It's just hard to fathom how we wouldn't know already. It seems staged to me.

I don't BELIEVE it's staged, but it feels that way sometimes. I have to believe what's in front of my eyes. So I have to believe NASA landed Curiosity on Mars and that they're honest. But I still have this feeling back inside my mind that everything is somehow artificial or unreal. Just bits and pieces of things I read now and then lead me to wonder. Nothing substantial or empirical. This is why it's just a feeling. This is why if asked in-person I'll have to say that NASA is our most reliable source of information. And I'll admit that if they say Curiosity landed then Curiosity landed.

I just get the sense sometimes that they don't want to know if life is on Mars. Sort of like how flat earthers might have a confirmation bias and try to avoid anything that contradicts it. I mean, the only real life detection experiment was the Viking Levin experiment. Since then pretty much nothing. That's the best they can do about detecting life on Mars in 35 years. Nothing.

Reminds me how we landed on the moon and then.... nothing.

They could have worked on much more thorough life detection experiments and sent them to Mars. But no, nope. You can say this is reasonable because the first experiments on Viking failed to detect life. However, it was not a complete failure. Gilbert Levin still thinks they detected life. I think something is going on deeper inside the human level psyche. Something anthropocentric. I remember reading a few years ago a study. In the study they concluded that people who're more likely to think life is elsewhere are less anthropocentric than those who think life elsewhere is less likely. If I could remember the details of the study I'd link it here, but I cannot. My dumb animal brain.

Amazing,so much time,effort & money have gone into making this journey work..great to see it go off without a hitch (so far).the people at NASA should be proud of themselves.

can't wait for the high res pics soon.

This will probably sound noobish when it comes to cameras, but you will have to excuse my ignorance. I know its not all about Megapixels, but the main camera is 8 mega pixels while you can buy a 30 mega pixel camera from any consumer store. Plus gigapixel cameras have also been made now. Fair enough the gigapixel cameras are probably just to big to justify it, but surely they could manage more than 8?? Or is it just about photo size, it would take to long to send back to earth if the resolution was so high?

You are being asked to believe what NASA tells you. Look into the history of NASA and see if they seem trustworthy to you. You will probably find, like a lot of people, that its the last organisation on earth to put your trust in.


That feeling you have is called intuition and is very powerful.
