are real scientists looking at those images and using their expertise to identify what they see there.
I know you're always very reasonable in your posts and a quite sympathetic sceptic, Wildespace
But I'd like to add my opinion, too: I think there is indeed value when people look through the images and highlight interesting things. Sometimes
they do it for entertainment, sometimes for the fun of it, but sometimes also because there's really something odd in the terrain. And that's OK, I
think ... unless - of course - you have too many of those obviously mega-zoomed images with absolutely zero detail
So while NASA/JPL do their science (which is of course important) at the speed of science, I think it's also good to have some additional eyeballs
on the images
to check things out more in detail. Afterwards we can still compare to the 'official versions' ... and silently laugh about our own
amateur evaluations. Or otherwise, work on the next huge conspiracy thread
, I mean just in case NASA/JPL offer explanations that are obviously
too far-out or misleading!
