The long wait is over, here is the first image of Victoria Crater.

Wikipdeia Image (12,200X1920)


Edit: Since this is ATS, bottom of the image, a little left of centre there is a rock that looks like a wolfhound skull. So many rocks that will look like so many things.
edit on 8-8-2012 by remotemedic because: Secondary thought.



Edit again: This isn't from Curiosity as I originally thought but after some secondary research, it is from Opportunity in 2006. Damn, I got all excited and stuff there. Trolled hard I was.

And this image is how a person standing on Mars would see the view...correct?

It looks like just about any desert here on earth, but it's not is it? pretty cool in my opinion.

It's like standing there. Almost. I cannot help but wonder what lies in the red sands...



Well, nice pic anyway. Never seen that one.

NASA sure loves them Martian craters...

I want to see some nicely packaged sedimentary rock. I think this stuff may be sed, but it's obviously been tore up real bad by bollide shock. I wanna point to pic and say, "Sandstone! Shale! (GASP!) LIMESTONE!

Whats with all the splices in the pic? Some parts don't even lineup correctly.

Curiosity is nowhere near Victoria Crater.


ETA: I suggest you edit your title while you can.

It's a meteorite crater and the image isn't from Curiosity.

Yea I was wondering, wasn't Curiosity supposed to be at the bottom of a much bigger crater.

Done, as reflected in my "I is dumb" edit.

What's your thoughts on the "color corrected photos" versus the orange pictures Nasa always releases? Do you think Nasa purposefully alters the photos to make them look more Martian-y? I really don't know what to think about that.

I am sure they do alter the pictures. Even this one looks like someone airbrushed something out in the background.

Maybe. If it was Earth. Not sure about the blue rocks though.
