Curiosity will soon travel to a nearby location to study a finely-layered rocky outcrop, dubbed Shaler. Curiosity took some images of it earlier: mars.jpl.nasa.gov...
But ask Richard C Hoagland, and he'll tell you that on those images you can clearly see the Martian apartments! Which NASA are apparently going to study. www.enterprisemission.com...
He compares the image of the outcrop to an image of a building with its wall collapsed. While there is some similarity in the crumbling material on both pictures, looking at the raw images and the panorama which I assembled ( www.pictureshack.us... ) it is clear to me that the "apartments" in the outcrop are very small, perhaps just a few centimeters tall. Curiosity was about 35 - 40 meters from the outcrop when it took these images. If those are really apartments, the Martians must be very tiny!
So, what do you think? Is Hoagland onto something there? ...
P.S. how do I post images so that they appear in the post?edit on 6-12-2012 by wildespace because: (no reason given)

To discount this is ridiculous, but I have to say it is more like a louvres such as ventilation shafts of long ago and I mean probably thousands years.Could be buildings that had to have special terraces for ventilation.
The polls (however what size they actually are I don't know. But there are support for those terraces. But being that they could be for ventilation and not standing under they are of course narrow.
