Do you remember the "Hugo" anomaly on Mars? Just a rock.

This image isn't of that anomaly, but of something better: Many more types of "Hugos", and they appear to be rocks (I don't know much about Geology, but I would guess volcanic). Nothing more.

I hope you get out your 3d glasses to check it out, because it's really the best way to see them. And as I always say, you can't call an anomaly on Mars by looking at 2D images zoomed in at 300%! It just makes no sense.


Here we have rocks that are elongated and appear to be "floating". I noticed them when I was stitching this up and I thought the ATS community should see it. Bottom left:



But you'll probably see better with the full sized image:


Or the GigaPan: www.gigapan.com...

Thoughts?

Finally some up close and personal look at the rocks on mars...best pics I have seen thus far(I am talking about the big pics in the external link...These rocks look like molten iron or steal...interesting

I know....i thought this was about Hugo strange from Batman arkham city.

He didn't say it was.
But Hugo, and these, are rocks.

Did you really just go around in a circle there? They're the same type of anomaly. Kind of shiny, and protruding from the rocks. Don't be obtuse.

You wanted to see this type of "anomaly" up close for some time - as we all have. Now that you are, you're going to get cognitive dissonance on me? Arken! I thought you were better than that!

If you want "debunk" the "hugo anomaly", and title your thread about that anomaly, you MUST post images or data or your own research of that particular "anomaly".


You know: the Sun and the Orange are both round and of the same colour, but they are not the same thing.

Don't you think? Or not?

I was looking at those the other day. The originals. Noticed the reflective areas.

Curiosity is in a transitional area right now, so were going to be seeing lots of new, and different things.
I've already noticed that there are many more rocks without the heavy coating of dust. Which is great for selecting targets to examine.
Hard to guess the series of processes here. But I am thinking something that flowed in a molten state, solidified quickly, then sat there, being polished for millions of years by wind and dust. Probably lots of silicates in these.

I'm sorry, but your deflection and counter arguments are laughable at best.

Yes. And I was thinking about those strange protruding shapes that come off the rocks, and my uneducated guess is that as they were cooling and while they were still "taffy", the high winds shaped them like that.

Cool stuff on Mars, Geologically speaking.

Upon perusal of your thread history it would appear you would be guilty of such a thing yourself.

On more than one occasion too, it seems.

And he refuses to take basic scientific measures of observation. He lives in a fantasy world.
I will bet $1,000 that he didn't even look at the 3D anaglyph, because if he did he would have NOTHING to say because there are dozens of things like his "Hugo" in this image.

Thanks for this, impaired ... the 3D anaglyph view is really awesome!


And it does look volcanic or at least like something that formed under the influence of cooling, melting, pressure, weathering & other FX of the rock cycle. I'm sure geologists will have already figured out what exactly we're looking at.

Yet, I wouldn't go about and generalize from this observation (however likely) that each and every other formation at Glenelg is that exact same thing. To me, 'Hugo' as well as several other shapes & features at Glenelg are still very distinctive in their particular context and would - IMO - have deserved the very same close-up examination as the rocky arrangement presented in this OP.

Very cool images, and it definitely reminds me of the Hugo formation. It looks like some semi-liquid molten rock that got quickly cooled and was "frozen in time".

In fact, these kind of formations remind me of the cornstarch+water experiments:

It isn't misleading. His post shows rock that is eroded in a manner similar to the "Hugo" rock.

Granted, the "Hugo" rock was more eroded, and only small parts were left, but this rock has similar eroded features that are rounded and polished smooth. As this rock gets eroded away more and more, we may see a feature that looks remarkably similar to "Hugo".

Had to pull out the 3d glasses for that last one


All rocks, but made me wish I was there to pick them up and start flipping them over. With the 3d look, you can see how the rocks eroded much clearer, I love that, I should of been a geologist!

That's a good point, that the smoothness and shiny-ness is due to being polished by the wind-borne dust. Can anyone tell what is the mineral composition of these rocks? I'm scared of asking at the UMSF in case I get booed off. Are there photos of similar features on Earth?
