yeah I noticed that with these too , why is the sand around them a darker shade , is it more saturated ?

The whole of everything seems saturated. The ones in the shot look like rover moved them, or drove over them. It is all just so cool!!

I think it's because the undisturbed soil has not being "burned" by the Sun for thousands of years, like the surface has. We can also see that on Earth, when we break a rock the inside has stronger colours.


But it is sticking to the rover tires really a lot like moist. it makes me think of that old Moon photo where you could see drops of water hanging on the underside of a rock they lifted.

Well they say so themselves


If you heat up a cubic foot of Mars soil, you can harvest around two pints (one liter) of water. According to new data returned by NASA’s Curiosity rover, this isn’t just a one-off lucky find, either: It seems that most of the dirt on Mars harbors large amounts of water.

the bottom left square in your upper pic.

Another view of the wheel area from behind i think mars.jpl.nasa.gov... loads of anomolies
At 3 oclock theres a disc on its side with a cilinder protrusion. Curiosity seems to have missed a few things on its way past.

Apparently it sticks only to one side of those "walls" on the wheels' surface, if it was moist it would stick everywhere.


it makes me think of that old Moon photo where you could see drops of water hanging on the underside of a rock they lifted.

Drops of water? I don't remember seeing that, only glass "drops" created (supposedly) during the impact of a meteorite.


Well they say so themselves

The fact that it has water doesn't mean it's moist, I don't see any comparison with Earth values, for example.

It sure looks like it. That means that the Rover's been hanging out within this tiny area of land for a couple of weeks now. It could have been halfway to Murray Buttes by this time. Snails pace is fine, but a snail would have crawled laps around this machine. What in the world (and by world, I mean Mars - haven't tired of saying that yet) was it waiting for.

I agree, it's fine, but I'm projecting ahead, and if they stop everywhere for two weeks for a good look it'll be well past their estimate of getting to Murray Buttes by sometime in the summer. I guess it doesn't make a difference though, so, yeah, a tarry and snuggle up to a section of landscape is all good. It has been fun at this present spot, that's for sure.

I haven't read the entire thread, but if it has not been mentioned, a lot of those pictures remind me of the dead "entombed by ash" figures at Pompeii. Not exactly, but similar. Sorry if I repeated something.
