    cue the conspiracy theorists.

    To me the idea that these pics come from Mars is more fascinating than the actual pics

    Looks like the sulfur valley I grew up in... with less wild mesquite and cholla growing everywhere.

    ummm well they are pictures of ANOTHER DAMN PLANET. that's kind of mind blowing??

    the mountains look oddly rounded! I'll be interested to see what those look like when it gets closer.

    Realy awesome! The more pics the better. It would be great to see them in person, unfortunately it may be decades....

    Oh, and that's just a shot of the Grand Canyon, cropped and desaturated. icon_wink.gif

    Right? icon_lol.gif

    The original pictures of Mars looked convincing, and I still believe they're real.

    But the shots of Curiosity look more like places on earth, that are easily debunked with Google Earth. Me thinks Curiosity was a scam. icon_wink.gif

    Tell the truth - that's the view out the gates of Edwards AFB.
