..What's your thoughts?
I imagine it's a speck of dust on the camera. Curiousty alredy has dust on its nav. lenses. I guess it can't be avoided.

if thats the mars surface, then what in the lalala is that farmland shaped stuff on the bottom of the picture?

If you noticed when you zoomed in, the area affected is a square that matches the image bands (color bars that subdivide the image) probably a
corruption in some place. A dust particle would not be so restricted so it must be some type of digital error.
Yea that could be.

Uhh? NASA put the rover there in no small part to look for life. Yet, you're sure they're trying to cover up life on Mars? Why?
NASA is always trying to get more funds, and the most succesful way is to lure people (eg politicians) into thinking the chances are good that
they'll find life on Mars or Europa or whatever. There is a large group of civilian scientists working alongside NASA also. They are not censoring
all those scientists' work and camera feeds. Don't believe me? You need to show the proof, because its just pure fantasy, an imposiible one, mind
you. They couldn't control that many people and that many technical instruments and tests, impossible.
Oh, and the second NASA finds life, they'll we loaded with cash.
They've already shown significant seasonal methane in the atmosphere of Mars, something that could suggest a wide dispersion of primitive life forms.
Are you a Christian, as your user name suggests? If so, I imagine you know many theologians say the idea of life in the universe is fine by them, even
the pope says so, so you should be fine even if NASA finds life there.

Just curious, but why would the picture be black and white?, not really much of a camera person, id have thought they would have been in colour.
Well, if we're talking Curiousity, so far we've only seen pics from the black and white navigation cameras. I don't know about the others

I took a look at the image and appears the light is coming from the left. The piece on the bottom right of the lander and the solar cell shadows tend
to go towards the camera and to the right. If the light was coming from the right I think the edge of the solar panel would show shadow to the left.
OMG, it's recorded in Hollywood! They put a glitch in the film to have fun with the folks at ATS!
