Horton, what do you mean by Maximum Weirdness? #298

Horton, what do you mean by maximum weirdness.? Is there possibly visual evidence of a prior civilization? Someone else leaving/placing things there? or something more simple like a coral reef?

I often wonder if maybe instead of looking at what is there, look at what is not there. For example if a structure was there and a volcanic eruption/flow cooled on the structure.... Might have burned up the structure or it deteriorated over time then what would the left over rock structure look like?

very interesting features here hopefully they'll stop and take a closer look?

Sorry if I just report a link and not an enhanced pic a-la-hort.

I have been looking at some HUGE panoramas of the area surrounding Curie,,,or the area to be traversed by Curie would be better said,,,,,and I keep going back to those pictures of the rovers wheels,,,,with pings and dents already in the 30ish SOL's and I begin to wonder,,what will be the first to go on this buggy,,,,the wheels?duh.

This part of Mars looks like a battlefield.
No lie.How do we explain razor sharp looking rocks while talking about eons of age,and
the turning and upheaval of said rocks,,
wind?,,,no way Hosa,,,,Geo-thermal?...yep,,,
but still those wheels,,,and the really sharp looking rocks I am seeing,,,and the super rugged terrain,,

,my goodness Curie.
Better get that science on the front burner and turned up high while you are still mobile.

Check out the white stuff in the bottom right. Seems to be part of the rock.

Beautiful find, JCC!

Here are thrre more pics of the same object, showing that it's not a mere play of light:

They really should zap these white patches with ChemCam (at least).

The longer I look at those thingies the more I am reminded of such - as a nice possibility:

Umm, a little up/left from center. Looks like a stalagmite formation.... or... ?

Looks like previous post got lost.

Slightly up/left from center, an interesting formation. Looks like stalagmite... or ... ?

The zoomable picture is great!! Now what has me extremely interested is all the large rocks with square edges towards the middle of the page. They look reminiscent of Quarried stone. Not sure how large they all are but they look like the stones that make up the great pyramids. Needless to say they really look like they were made by non-geological processes.

For those of you that are more geologically disciplined maybe you can shed light on how common large rectangular stones are on earth.

No problem, guys.

And good news - Sol 109's MastCam 100mm images came down today and they matched with 107's. 109's are stitched to the right side. Nice view! Cooler things! Cool rocks in the foreground, awesome polygons in the midground, and right before Mount Sharp are the sand dunes. Check it out! If they keep releasing images that connect to this, I will update:

I like the part / snapshot that is labeled as "toothlike" in de Gigapan. View the snapshot in the Gigapan to see.

Trick of light? What could cause this feature?

So what do you all speculate is interesting about the rock that curiosity is currently stopped at? Looks to me that the rock is something that was subjected to extreme heat somehow.

I found this shiny object

while observing PIA16453

Debris? Sun shining at the rock?
