Something is definitely up. They DID take down those Mars Curiosity thumbnails. Proof:

A few things:

1. Firstly, the image does look very Earth-like. However, that does not necessarily mean that we are not looking at Mars here. If Mars was once covered with water, then we would expect sandstone (and, possibly, limestone, if marine life evolved) and other sedimentary rock to be present

2. Just a new thought: has anyone considered that the finger/penis could actually be a shell? If you look at the way it widens at the top, it does look similar to some of the sea-shells we have here on Earth.

Any thoughts?



edit on 16-8-2012 by chemistry because: Clarity


The finger-penis also seems to have a striated/rippled appearance, as one would expect on a sea-shell.

The finger-penis had me laughing! Could very well be a successful spin-off
series to a favourite series of mine.


I'm thinking a remake of that james bond classic - GoldFinger-Penis.
There is great milage here.

Actually there is nothing caught in the treads - literally! There are holes* in the treads through which you can see the ground below.

* The "holes" caused quite a stir in the Amateur Radio community because the folks at JPL designed the gaps in the tread to spell out "J", "P", and "L" in Morse Code! Kinda neat!

Here's a shot with more of the wheel in it.

Pretty large accumulation of pebbles from the landing rocket blast in the bottom of the wheel. Seems the skycrane was probably a really good idea.

It's not a finger penis in the desert of mars!!! Damn, no wonder everyone thinks we are conspiracy nuts. ( a finger penis in the desert...."we don't have those in earth deserts" he says...sheesh! )
It is just a curiously shaped rock and your filthy eyes decided to see a penis because you may secretly be in love with your mother....hey MOD, it's from Sigmund Freud...not me, he channeled through me to say that....I tried to stop him but he was stronger than I.

Hey! I spotted the Finger-cum-Penis first!
Leave Chemistry alone!

You seem soooo sure that there are no finger-penises (finger-peni?) in deserts on earth.
Well I have just one word to say to you. Prove It! The anusonus is on you friend.

What have Martian finger-penises (finger-peni?) got that more Earthbound finger-penises
(finger-peni?) don't, eh? What have you against finger-penises (finger-peni?) in general.

I am sure you can rise to this challange, and I hope I didn't rub you up the wrong way.

Thanks for the laugh.

Phage.

Why weren't the images included in the original panoramic they released? Why did some of us have to manually retrieve them? I asked you this before and I got no answer.

Come on man! This blatantly looks like the underside of any gentlemans penis.
(Or a finger-penis, if you prefer).

(I flipped the finger-penis image, for your viewing pleasure).

You might need to look down more, friend.

That Link did not work for me.

Are you looking for a high quality version of that image? Simply copy the image name and click google image.

Oh, okay. Well when you're looking at the pictures taken on the nasa website:
mars.jpl.nasa.gov...
notice the time when pictures were taken. Photos were taken around ~30 seconds apart and they're displayed on the website in a descending order.

From around 2012-08-09 05:45:49 UTC camera is panning down, hard.
To my understanding all the images following that time were not intended to be a part of the panorama because of the perspective. They probably wanted to check if the wheels and that other equipment is looking alright.

Thats pretty clear to me when im looking at your gigapan panorama. You had to force the perspective (reason for the pointy corners on the bottom). Using them in the panorama is just not practical (actually if you want to have a correct perspective its impossible). Btw nasas version is horizonatlly cropped to look better.

The rock that seems to be engraved is highlighted in this image. I think the rock says A11/A77. Please zoom in.

As I look carefully at this rock..I see a figure that looks like an Egyptian type of painting..like we see in the pyramids..you can see both arms the chest the head and the hair..perhaps someone here has some type of photo program and can enhance it in some way..Cheers Coco

also to the right of the painted rock is a stone that looks very much like a human face..almost like Zeus..

He is referring to the design (almost like an 'E' on its side) indicated by the red arrow.
Do you see the 'S', indicated by the black arrow?

YES they removed the pics, maybe they didn't want people like you downloading their images?

just a thought is all.

not everything related to NASA is about aliens..

That one small rock by the tire track looks like a washed rock! A washed rounded rock shows water erosion usually! Looks like they may be trying to cover that up, or something about the rover itself.

Just my guess!

Even if the rock did show signs of water erosion, why would NASA be covering up water erosion in Gale Crater?

They sent Curiosrity to Gale Crater in the first place because NASA thinks Gale Crater was once a very wet place. NASA says they think it may have been a lake at one time. They also say the highlands around Gale Cater show signs of once being areas of water runoff, and they exhope to find sediment from that runoff in the crater

...so why would they care if we saw a water-eroded rock. They already told us there might be such rocks there.

Ok im not crazy but there is a stone with a face under the rover tracks and there is no way that that stone was not carved look very close there are eyes ears and a mouth !!!!!!!!!!! with a dot in the center between the eyes Im seriously like shaking right now LOOK UNDER THE ROVER TRACKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
