    Oops yeah, so it is. Was looking on my phone earlier and the image looked very weird.

    The mosaic shots all have orientation marks in them. They're like the things on crash test dummies heads (also orientation marks fwiw).

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Shouldn't be too long before we start to get colour images.

    The dark photos look really arty.

    I see them as symbolic of the lonely delicateness of the machine, one of man's greatest technological achievements, against the brutal harshness of the Martian wastes.

    Interesting piece on MSL on Material World on Radio 4 now, probably worth listening on iplayer if you've missed it, there some interesting stuff about the geology and science stuff.

    I got excited over the first rover on mars in the 90s, people are acting like they sent a man there or something.

    It's full of new equipment and lasers that'll attempt to discover if there was ever life on mars, there won't be and it'll be as useful(less) as the other 5 rovers already there. Granted this will hopefully send HD pics back.

    I'm just angry as Im not on this planet long and I'd like to see larger leaps regarding space and planets that are more exciting. China need to step it up and get America more competitve in space, the Americans wold land a man on the sun if it means doing it before China.

    If the curiosity digs up a martian skull i take it all back.

    You never know. If they do find signs of past life, however small, the entire book gets thrown out. If there are two places in a single Solar System that support(ed) life, then our galaxy is obviously abundant with it. Hopefully they find something, because we really need to get our arses in gear. We seem content to just live out our days as a species sucking this planet dry at the moment.

    There's so much information locked up in those cliffs it's almost impossible that they won't find anything cool there. Perhaps not mind blowing, but I guess that depends on your definition. The fact it took us hundreds of years to interpret the cliff records on our own planet and we're planning to do the same in a matter of weeks on an alien world is itself pretty cool.

    The fact that all the problems in getting there safely were surmounted, and that it might confirm the presence of the chemicals required to sustain human life and send humans back to earth again, could be hugely significant for human exploration outside of Earth's orbit.

    The possibility of humans landing on Mars has (probably) got a wee bit closer.

    I'm hoping that if we don't have a person on Mars by the time I die. They develop the technology to my brain in a robot body, then i'm getting my shiny metal arse to Mars.

    Would be cool if they could terraform it remotely and then have the humans rock up.

    We can't even keep our own planet under control, let alone terraforming Mars.

    That would be fantastic! Imagine the money that would be invested? we'd have men on the surface of Mars within 10 years if we found oil!

    I doubt it. What good is oil all the way out there. Going there to get it and then bring it back would be stupid expensive. There's oil reserves here in earth we're not tapping into because the cost of extracting it is too high.
