that doesn't make sense to me..

sense to me since millions upon millions of ppl around the globe have DL'd NASA pics ...I think the OP even stated that he got them from NASA and clipped them together to make the gigapan.. their still NASA's pics..just better put together..

why would NASA and yahoo .. etc.. give the entire run around..

I smell a rat..

well, go over it with a fine tooth comb

Let's make it simple: we're all criminals and let's all be afraid.

I'm not sure but I think its showing a sizeable puddle of liquid water top center part snaking its way on the surface much like a river would; near where there is no data

Wow, I Agree it really looks like a long stream of water. Are these raw images still available on the nasa site or have they been taken down. If they're gone then it seems like they're trying to hide something...

You lost me at "torrent sites deleted my torrent and banned my IP" ..

Unless you're using some lame torrent sites, I just don't buy that ... The US government desperately wants to get rid of sites like The Pirate Bay and they can't .. if you had posted it there or at any of the top torrent sites there's simply no way it would get removed... credibility for me was lost right there.

Besides you're making a panorama out of images released BY nasa .. it's all public so it makes no logical sense either.

I wonder what was on those pictures that haven't been loaded. They're probably getting 'cleaned up' as we speak. If OP saw them as they were being loaded, it is possible that someone on NASA's end zoomed in and said waaait a minute, we're not releasing that.

Wonder if there's anything on your Gigapan that is questionable. Also, it'd pay to compare this Gigapan with what they come out with and see if anything is airbrushed out. I'd back up those files.

Im starting to get chills - that looks like a moist river bed - the water has leached into the ground
giving the surface soil a darker color and it snakes like one too.

The Curiosity mission landing site was chosen as low lying land specifically to target a high
probability of water accumulation.

They cut out the water pools !

That's so weird and frustrating that your having these problems. Thanks for doing what you have done, it so cool!

Were you able to see images where the white boxes are, before they disappeared?

I was looking up close at high res and saw this and snipped it. What do you suppose that round shiny thing on the horizon is? It looks like a domed observatory.

you mean that rock?

in fact....closer analysis of one of the "riverbed" raw images from jpl

imho reveals a dark "fluid level" - a straight line that shouldn't be a shadow -

where the little black arrow is. zoom in there. this may be quite a cool find.

and yes, many of the nearby cells are low res thumbnails for no apparent


Im a radiologist - i image analyze all day. Fluid levels are unmistakeable.

Mud Volcanoes on Mars

"This relationship suggests that the occurrence of the mounds is associated with pre-existing faults and fractures that might have acted as pathways for subsurface fluids,"

Several investigators have detected methane, which on Earth is generally — although not exclusively — the gas associated with mud volcanoes

Such methane may spring from water reacting with iron minerals below the Martian surface, the team speculates.

The image also contains several "balck specks" mostley on the mountains, some "hovering" in the air.

Another chap posted a few the other day, we ruled out birds and flying mud, and concluded they were UFOs.

As you do

I have been following this since you put up the image OP, and I have to tell you that I think you did a fantastic job with it and I really look forward to seeing more of you're images in the future!

Just having the rovers on Mars and seeing the images is amazing and all, however I have been curious as to why we only get images and there have never been any videos. I know there is not a whole lot to look at but it would be neat to have video taken while a camera pans around, and have that video streaming live online all the time.
I know that there is a 14 minute delay in getting a data stream from Mars, is this the reason why we do not or cannot get video?
Also, please hold you're breath folks, I don't want to hear a bunch of people going off about not having video because of needing to cover something up and whatnot...

Good luck in getting your image online and keeping it there...

I'm impressed...Could it be as it appears?? Will follow this thru..Good Luck!

Because the data transfer between Mars and Earth is 48Kbps.....about the same you would get on the old dialup, I think it takes about an hour just to get one photo back.

Water or not, this is perhaps the most interesting area I've seen yet. It begs for closer examination and more photos.

Thank you, I had no idea about the data transfer rate at all and to be honest I have no idea why I didn't think to google this LOL. I know that small images come in farily quickly though, in watching the live feed from JPL last week they had a few small images come in just minutes after landing.

Your IP got flagged dude. "Yahoo!" just doesn't want anything to do with it. Believe me, it happened to a close friend and his got flagged for almost a year.

He went out and bought a laptop and only used it when he was not at home, and used a scrambler. I would give a scrambler, they change the IP constantly, but i believe that undermines the T&C. He was perfectly fine tho. Idk how long you'd be flagged for as it varies with the extent of what information you could've stumbled across, just lay low and stay OFF of ATS. Not to be mean, but don't parade things like this around. YES it must be an AMAZING find, im not discrediting you on that. Just make sure you take care of yourself and your privacy.

And run a scan to make sure you didn't get an infection/virus of any sort. They like to do that also.

My advice...
stay off of websites that could potentially be viewed as "a threat to our National Security".

Take it easy,

Looks like a rock to me...not really a domed observatory
