How about taking away all the different bonuses from all the banksters and push in the money into projects like this.


And then what? Will it help planet Earth??? How is this mission benefiting us? Why are we so fascinated with life on other planets; and care so little about life on this one? The same people that start wars, are the same people that runs NASA. So, how does this benefit you and me???

I could only imagine what life would be like, if we used all this technology to enhance our lives. Instead of going to mars, how about we find a cure for cancer????


At some point in time we'll have to deal with an asteroid or comet heading our way. I bet you would wish we spent more time and money on that day?
We need another planet to completely destroy once were done with earth duhh

I don't care about the mission. I do care that our country will be able to survive in the case of natural disasters and the fact that we are so far in debt doesn't help that fact. NASA itself says that there are increased chances of severe weather in the future. Wouldn't it be nice if we had more money allocated to FEMA than a rover on Mars? We need to be thinking more responsibly with our countries money. We need to be prepared for the disasters that can occur, and this includes having a viable real Economy. If the Economy collapses everyone in this country will be in trouble. People in California were living in tents that used to own nice homes and have good income before the crash in 08. This can happen to the whole country, not only is the country overextended but the people themselves. A service oriented Economy cannot exist, the national debt will increase because other countries will take a portion of the money when we pay them. I have no ill feelings for China, they are trying to supply a better way of life for their citizens. I worry about our Economy and that means we need to put factories back here to supply jobs for our people. Not all people are rocket scientists but they still deserve jobs. Although NASA does supply jobs, the majority of the money gets paid to the smartest people, not the regular people. There are trickle down jobs created but the new rich seem to give their money to the elite suppliers and they create jobs with wages to employees without good benefits and pay that is adequate to raise a family on. This imbalance of the growing rich people at the top is a concern to me. They aren't like the old elite who wasted money and created adequate income for the common people to survive. This is a troublesome situation and when this happens countries collapse. I love our country and want it to survive.

I don't get all the hate with the pics, So the first ones were small and in b&w, So what, THIS IS F*****G MARS, I was in awe even at the pics from the hazcam thumbnails, Yeah we've seen it all before but again, THIS IS F*****G MARS, I don't think any of the moon landings/mars rovers have been faked and while I do believe that NASA shops some images I don't think they are really trying to hide anything, Unfortunately.

Something just came to mind. We have a Rover on Mars with a Freakin LASER beam on its head!


This might be a defense weapon against those pesky martians.

Thanks for the awesome panoramic, but this isn't from the Curiosity Rover. It's from either Spirit or Opportunity (Solar panels - Curiosity does NOT have solar panels).

Awesome pic, though!

If we don't reevaluate our spending habits, NASA will have no funding in the near future. I'd rather see a statistically cut down version than no NASA at all. This Economy the USA and some European countries have is not viable. I forsee the government having to eliminate any nonessential spending in the next two years. I also see them taking away tax deductions for donations to seventy five percent of non profit organizations, NASA being one of them, Educational institutes another. Those where a high percentage of the donation can be claimed will be eliminated.

My predictions, the ones I actually tell people, have a lot of research behind them and they usually happen. That is if I am not joking around, which I am not in this case. From studying how things happen in the past the middle class goes after the programs that provide for the poor and needy first then find out there is nothing really there. The facts on government sites lump things together. Does the cost of healthcare for children actually go to the poor? No, the money goes to the medical industry. After the middle class finds there is no money in taking away from the poor they go after the rich and now, the upper middle class. They usually destroy the whole economy of the country in the meantime and everyone winds up poor. Study your history, that's what it's there for.

It's funny how I get off topic but everything is tied together when you start talking of the economy of a nation and the world economy.

What really irritates me is NASA's demonstration of the ability to get as close as they do with an image mosaic top down view of the rover. Granted, the primary mission (that we know of) is to seek evidence of the primordial composition of life but one would think with all the anomolies on the planet they would zoom in for a close up on those. Maybe they have?!?!?. I am getting pretty damn tired of looking at rocks.

Nice images OP; keep them coming


You are SO right. They go to places OPPOSITE to were they SHOULD !

I wouldn't be surprised about this, the NASA budget is down from barely 1% of the total fed budget (in the early 90s) to now only 0.48% - rapidly declining all the time.

Of course, let me guess, money is taken from THOSE programs which are already way under-budgeted anyway and things like science, education etc. To say it the 900th time, compared to other spending (military etc.) this budget is a joke. With only a fraction of the military spending we would probably have colonies on Mars right now and could go there for $399 round-trip.

The last 2 images look like they have 3-D colors....is that normal?

JUST CHECK........MARS IS THE NEXT PLANET AWAY FROM THE SUN...............so that means that we are so close to the sola flares that in the future we are gonna have to migrate to a place with less heat,at least its hope for survival,maybe we are doomed and only Nasa knows......FORGET the progress of science if this planet perishes we dont need that....Theres a big change in the weather lately unusually hot,and hot when i was a child means 80 degrees ,now hot means 106 degrees,,this is very rare,or should say off the hoook,because the drougth and the lack of rain,its just to dramatic....REALLY ARE WE UP FOR the migration to Mars???..or maybe not us but the chosen ones.....

With Rover paving the way for human habitation on Mars (eventually...) I have finally figured a way that creation/science can co-exist. All those who want to stay on Earth, and that feel space exploration is a waste of time/money can just STAY here on Earth and wait for God to destroy us all. (Which they want to badly) The rest of the people who don't want to deal with religious zealots anymore can move onto Mars and enjoy the fruits of science's labor.

My friend, there is no point in arguing with these people... you know whats in important for humanity and America. These sheep think desert planets are cool, because its a minor escape from the real reality they face everyday. Let the science geeks get kicks out of dead soil, boring rocks and months of desert, you and I will just have faith the planet takes it easy on us through this shift...
