That's a great panorama! I can't wait till we move closer to the mountain and then actually on it.

I do wonder why... like those anomalies...the "door handle" and the one that looked like a crystal...why they don't zap or drill those to see what the composition is.

Curiosity has probably zapped a lot of rock material by just running over it. There is so much material about that looks like rocks but is so Amorphous that could never been a rock, while other stuff looks like rocks that have no moisture left. I don't know how Curiosty's region of rocks compare to Pathfinder's where there is surface moisture on the surface at some given time. It's all a bit weird.

Nice Stellarium Mod...

Is this really Mars?

If you tweak the colour temperature and saturation, the sky turns blue on these photo's.

It's almost as if the Mars Rover just sent pics from it's training in the Atacama desert.

From a scientific view, if there was water on mars and a sustainable atmosphere similar to Earth's then yes Mars atmosphere would probably be blue.

Interesting how some of the 'striations' look like the kind of remains of walls archaeologists dream of.

I find it interesting to see, in the middle distance, a band of haze at the foot of the long hill. Water vapor? I've seen just that sort of thing here in New Mexico.

If you pan up to the sky , you will see what I should imagine is the Sun .
Something is bugging me , although I may be way off base here . The size of the sun doesn't look much smaller from how it looks here on earth . With Mars being such a distance away , wouldn't the Sun look a whole lot smaller ?
Maybe it has something to do with Mars eliptical orbit ?

The Sun and most of the sky is fake. Curiosity's images that were used for this panorama include mostly the terrain (understandably) and only a bit of the sky above the horizon and Mt Sharp.

However, here's a vertical mosaic of images Curiosity took of the sky:


The sky on Mars is "butterscotch" in colour, similar to what we get when there's a dust storm:

So the sky is fake and the sun was added purely for effect ?
Is it common knowledge that NASA fakes their photographs ?

That panorama wasn't made by NASA, it was made by a panoramic photographer Andrew Bodrov.

Umm,

I think at first, the first people on mars will have to exercise more.

But then the body adapts to an environment. You would be conditioned to live there after a few generations. I think that modern humans on earth and humans on mars will evolve differently throughout time.

Dont be afrraid. Why fear discovery..........i totally understand your post is most likely sarcastic in nature. I was thinking outloud thats all.

Have a nice day all.

I found this a while ago , This is how Mars may have looked if it still had its water at the surface .

The image was made from data from the MARSIS radar on Mars Express based on sediments detected that suggest an ancient ocean once existed .

The 4-Billion Pixel Panorama is a beautiful picture .

Do we have to worry about earthquakes on Mars?

I'm starting to see advantages for Mars being populated.

First things: Install a reliable Artificial Magnetic Field to protect Mars from the solar wind.

As far as I know, no. No visible signs of relatively recent activity either.

Haven't had time to go through whole area but on a quick glance (as per usual with Mars photos), there are some things that just aren't "right" with it:



Taken from OPs photo btw.

I'm not saying what I think they are, I'm just saying that there are a ton of anomalies with Mars pictures.

I have also used the ZOOM feature. The whole area appears bizarre.

I hope the Curiosity travels to the top of that mountain nearby. I want another

4 Billion pixel panorama from the apex with the ZOOM turned on.
