Some interesting chunks in a Sol 544 MAHLI image, the framed crops are white-balanced:

Source Image

Could be feldspar crystals encrusted in the rock, but then again ... hmmmm, not really sure. Further images of that same area can be found in the related MAHLI archive.

Find me an insect.

Why, do you need one?



So many things in these close ups look like insects

I can't see one thing that looks like an insect (six legs, body made from three separate parts, etc.), I see only sand and pebbles.

ROCK...just saying would we recognize on Mars?

That depends if it was seen with enough resolution or not, it would be impossible to recognize if it appeared as a 4 pixels block with a slightly different colour, and resizing that 4 pixels block would be just as useless as it is with any other small object on a highly compressed image.

If it appeared with that resolution it would be easily recognised.

What do you think, would you recognised it?


PS: the Venus of Lespugue is made from ivory.

interesting shiny thing



*funBox morphs into a magpie*

could that be a mother of pearl substance ? , although it doesn't show much iridescence at this zoom factor

I don't think it's shiny, just white, as I don't see any signs of reflectivity in it.

Also, I think the shadow is just the shadow of the rock next to it, that I marked in red in the image below.

I do I do I do! I need one!! I don't think they will be like ours, more shielded and even tougher than ours.

Looks Like Rover has tested these two types of things we see everywhere.

Yes that is it, and a spiral type (possible shell) next to it.
Those rocks are just beautiful!

We can finally see the full size images from Sol 541, and this is how that image looks at full size.

I was bored with some people and their attitudes (not on this forum), so I decided to make a new panorama, this one is from Sol 541.

(click for the full size GigaPan version)


And this is the white balanced version

PS: Microsoft ICE makes it very easy to make panoramas like these.

I believe I noted at the time that it didn't look as spoke-like upon closer examination. My observations are confirmed. AGAIN!

Excellent. Makes it much easier to see where the little buggy is heading -- over to the arroyo and down. Should be some interesting bugs down in that hole, as long as there's enough flat space to move around.

Those are diamonds! Get me on the next space ship to Mars.

On second thought, it's too cold and dry. Get me on the next airplane to someplace warm and tropical.

Thanks for that panorama, if boredom yields results like that I hope you'll be bored more often ... !


In the meantime, I did a hypothetical Now-Then comparison illustrating what Yellowknife Bay may have looked like in the past, with ankle-deep water at its shores:


Well, probably there was even more water. Much more, in terms of seas & even oceans. When thinking about it, it becomes increasingly difficult to imagine that life did not kickstart on the red planet. Whatever the case, I hope you're all a bit inspired by this lakeside-view at Yellowknife (some eons and eons ago) ... !
