I love to watch Mars YouTube videos pointing out things like this. the pic of the statue that has gone around is really in the Nasa pic. I thought it was a photoshop.what I didn't understand is why Nasa smears some of the photos and not others? I would also love to see what is under those smudges. Nice find!

That's because they don't smear any photos, at least not any photo that I have seen.

There are thousands.... at least... Moon & Mars.

Seems that you are not much aware with NASA/JPL/LPI/USRA Photos,.... ArMaP

They are thousands of cases of people claiming that, I have never seen one that was real.

Blind or skeptic?

In this case, neither, I just haven't seen any photos smeared by NASA.

I suppose you are talking about a specific photo, as I don't think the crater itself was smeared.

Nice find.


It looks like the result of condensation, as if a dust particle served as a humidity collector and when the rover moved the resulting water(?) drop moved, cleaning a path along it's way.

Not smudged, it looks like a lower resolution image was used to compensate the lack of a higher resolution version.

I have also have spent a great deal of time checking out the Curiosity photos on the home Nasa site. I have also seen holes in what look like dry stream beds. In fact they can be seen in most of the photos with similar topography. I would never say someone is totally wrong when no one knows for sure. Taking into account even on earth masssive underground caverins and rivers can be found. Some day I may even post some of the most interesting things I have found in the Nasa Photos !

Come on, man. I made that GigaPan. It says right in the description:


83 images combined to create this mosaic. Smart Sharpened at 133%. I also blew up 2 thumbnails to substitute for the missing (high resolution) images, so if you see 2 blurry spots, don't go crazy


Please read the descriptions before you jump to conclusions.


Thanks, ArMap.


Edit - Nasgaar: I use those low resolution images because if I didn't, there would be black boxes (missing data). I'd rather have SOMETHING there so when you zoom out and the resolutions match, you can see the whole picture instead of waiting forever to get the remaining images that get lost in the shuffle.

People are so gullible. They see a few weird looking rocks and all the sudden they're convinced that there was a civilization on Mars. lol

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.


About the holes in the ground, the other photos taken from a more vertical position show that they are not really holes, it's just those slab-like rocks that are not in full contact with the ground below.

So, probably no big empty spaces below those rocks.

It's all good. I can see why people would assume something is up. That's why I try to specify as much as possible. In my newer GigaPans, I snapshot the thumbnails now.


Check out my latest one. It's a real doozy.

Thanks. It's actually not really hard to to - it's more of a pain in the ass.


If you have the program to do it, you're good. I use PTGui and Photoshop (to handle cropping, sharpening, etc.).

You should all try it. Pain in the ass aside, it's really cool to download each image one at a time and then when you feed it in to the program and fix some control points (the matching between two images), it's like BAM! - A whole mosaic.

It's really cool.


If folks can't afford PTGui, try Hugin. It's free. It's a lot harder to use, but it's more powerful. I can't get down with Hugin, though.


But thanks for the kudos.
Mars rocks.

Stupid pun. But it's true!
