NASA’s Curiosity rover continues to explore the Martian surface, approaching an area called “Yellowknife Bay”. Who and When names this place on Mars? And, first of all: WHY so? "When" and "Why", are very important questions because, if that area was called so, before the Rover came in, well, then, again, Curiosity is the luckiest Rover ever! There is "something" like a KNIFE in that area!

What a wonderful coincidence!

Hmmmm... wait...

Maybe because that thing is "someting like a knife" and it is right in the middle of an area called "Yellowknife"?

But it isn't yellow.

That shadow does appear to resemble a knife.

Maybe they saw a shadow that resembled a "knife" and called it "yellowknife" hmmmm..?

Exact. So: WHEN they called this area with this name?

It's a shadow because the patterns on "the knife" match exactly the patterns in the background sand.

You do realize that's just a shadow on the side of that rock and not an object right? If the picture were taken a few inches in any direction, the "knife" wouldn't be there.



I know you think it's highly suspicious...but why/how would NASA name a Martian region after a shadow on a rock?

I believe there is a place called Yellowknife in Canada.
prbly named after that.

It was named "Yellowknife Bay" during the initial planning stages of the operation by a secretive group of Nasa cyborgs and time traveling atlantean space engineers who, in a very super villain fashion, cast down a 'yellow knife' upon a map of mars and boldly declared "This is where man's journey beyond the stars ends."

I enjoy looking at any of these pictures of Mars. The Rover really has to pick its way through some pretty large rocks and ancient-Indian artifacts like scraping knives and hammers, so I hope NASA knows a direct route to the foothills or else it may bump into a rock/point barrier/cache which can make for some long drive-arounds. I suppose the route is mapped from the sky, and a path is already in place.

The site is named after Yellowknife Bay in Canada: en.wikipedia.org...
It has been named so quite a while ago, certainly before the rover reached it. I'll try to find the earliest mention.

P.S, it might be this, the article from Dec 11 2012: mars.jpl.nasa.gov...

Thanks for this wildespace.


So NASA/JPL called "Yellowknife Bay" before the rover reached that area....

Hmmm....


Or Curiosity is the luckiest NASA Rover ever... or they were secretely already in that area...

Could have also named it bay of piggy.

Anyone else notice the little piggy at the 4'o clock position of the yellow square ?

Personally, I don't see anything resembling a knife there. I think you're making a big issue out of nothing, using just a stretch of imagination.

Here are images of that site taken at a different time of the day:

mars.jpl.nasa.gov...
mars.jpl.nasa.gov...

Do you see a knife there?

P.S. plug plug my panorama: photosynth.net...

What interests me more is why there are missing images? Have they found something they don't want us to see? o.o

I don't understand your puzzlement. The "knife" isn't yellow, and the "knife" isn't really a single object, but instead just the way various shadows appear when viewed from this direction.

There are a lot of shapes of things that could be found in those rocks. Like the person above me said that he sees a pig. So if they would have called if "Pig Bay", he could have said, just like you said:

"Or Curiosity is the luckiest NASA Rover ever... or they were secretely already in that area...
"


Again, the various shadows that make up that thing that you believe looks like a knife are not one continuous shadow on the same plane, but rather different pieces on different planes. So (considering your conspiracy theory), if NASA was secretly there in the past, they would need to be looking from that very some spot, at the very same time of day (sun angle), with their camera at that very same height, and viewing it at that exact same angle to see this "knife" (which, frankly, I can barely make out as a knife -- and probably only because you put that notion in my head).



Here's the actual reason it was called "Yellowknife Bay":

The whole landing area was named "Yellowknife" because Yellowknife, Canada, is known by geologists as the starting point for many geological expeditions to that part of Canada -- and area which holds a wealth of information to geologists:


The moniker is a tribute to the capital of Canada's Northwest Territories, a city that has long served as the jumping-off point for geologists interested in studying North America's oldest rocks, scientists said.

"If you ask, 'What is the port of call you leave from to go on the great missions of geological mapping to the oldest rocks in North America?' — it's Yellowknife," Curiosity chief scientist John Grotzinger, of Caltech in Pasadena, told reporters Friday (Aug. 10).


So it makes perfectly good sense why the landing area was named "Yellowknife". This smaller part named "Yellowknife Bay" of Mars' Yellowknife was probably named "Yellowknife Bay" because if the way the topography suddenly drops off into something that looks bay-like.

I'm not sure if you're being serious or not, but it's likely that not all the images were there at the time when you assembled your panorama. It can take days to get all the images. Go back and see if the missing images are there.
