Re: The Real Mars

Thanks! smile

Another good example of reflective rocks, reflecting Curiosity back to us, (the white thing in the middle rock is the rovers wheel leg).

And this. smile Another good example of why l consider Mars to be a wet planet!

A hillside with water running off it, due to rainfall or a natural spring?

And down the bottom of that a main made, or alien made bridge, with a car on the left of course.

Re: The Real Mars

Another reflective rock, this one shows Curiosity, and its camera torrent, (the one taking this image) and the blue sky.

Re: The Real Mars

I did suggest some time ago that revenue could be generated by having VR centres in major cities on Earth where people could experience Mars - you could mix a real Mars landscape with a specially designed actual surface with real rocks on it. People could walk around and pick up some of the rocks. THere could be a Rover that you can get in, buckle up and have a bump "ride" over the surface,

Once people have landed on Mars, I think this could be a big draw.

I figure that Elon Musk's Manned space Mars outpost will have cameras everywhere?

But let's hope, not everywhere.

Re: The Real Mars

I think a Mars TV channel could easily pick up say 5 million viewers per day out of the billions of TV viewers on Planet Earth, and would thus be a very lucrative revenue stream. It could easily be raising hundreds of millions of dollars per annum in revenue through advertising, subscriptions and sales.

Re: The Real Mars

First one shows the usual water runoff.

And this one shows Curiosity's camera torrent, nothing unusual about that, but look behind it! smile

Yep, dark or grey clouds, or in other words rain clouds.

And NASA says nothing.

Re: The Real Mars

Nothing much today, just some more puddles. In fact most if not all of the ground here is damp. Natural springs might be causing this, but recent rainfall is more likely, considering the rain clouds we saw in previous, reflective rock images.

Re: The Real Mars

This is interesting, not the reflected landscape, but the hollow rings. There seems to be three all up, and they are not present on the rover, (l checked) so that can be discounted. There also seems to be smoke coming from one of them but l believe it to be a dust devil.

Re: The Real Mars

Interesting reflective rock.

The dark and white things, are Curiosity, and the rest isn't.

But interesting to note that the landscape or ground is green, and it also has the usual bright blue, with clouds, (not the red/orange, BS ones NASA keeps showing).

There are also more of those rings embedded in the ground. I thought that they might be tree's, but rings with some of the green, algae, or moss growing up them?

The computer enhancement clearly shows green, and the rover has zero green on it, so Mars very likely has plant life on it.

Well, that and everything else.

The first, is Curiosity again, (block type thing) then the landscape, blue hills and sky, but the large white thing in the distance?

Best guess that it is a band of clouds rising over the distant hills, and these clouds are dark at the base, enough said.

The second rock is a puzzle,....there seems to be a huge structure in the distance.

I computer enhanced it to make sure that it wasn't some freak clouds, but no, the CE clearly shows a giant structure of some kind.

Curiosity drives past the equivalent of an oil refinery, and we get zilch.

The world will be shocked when NASA finally owns up, except us of course.

No, not an alien artifact, but just Curiosity's front wheel.

Re: The Real Mars

This is one of the best reflective rocks l have seen, and clearly show Curiosity in the distance, driving alone the martian surface.

There also appears to be a giant dust storm on the right, and the blue sky is unmistakable, (even on the red filter one, top image).
