I just thought this was pretty interesting.


Looks strange. I dont really know much about geology.

I have seen quite a few images from these rovers and I have not seen this one. The image is good resolution and believable. I don't really know enough about Geology to debate but will leave a link below for this. I personally think there to be many structures out there that we don't know about. I see no evidence to prove otherwise.

It looks a lot like brick laying, doesn't it? Kinda strange.

The article insists it is compact sedimentary stone, which it could be. Honestly, I don't see the practicality of laying brick. On the other hand...for sedimentary stone...it looks unusually uniform. Normally you get squiggles and lines and curves in sedimentary rock from erosion. The sides of those rocks are really...REALLY straight. Who knows? Maybe there are a few Martian stone masons around.

I totally agree with this and thought the same. I am not sure really what to think of this as i cannot pick it up and analyze myself... maybe one day?

the soil can make many cool things, but damn that looks like it was put there

I agree, it does look like it was put there. I am going to have to research the explanation.

From what I am seeing, it could be very possible for life to have existed on Mars. I realize that life can form anywhere depending on the base of such life forms, etc., but if you take in to consideration the possibility of planetary migration and that flowing water on the planet at one point is probable, then I would conclude that intelligent life could have very well existed on Mars at one time. Mars axis is close to Earth's, and although summer temperatures only reach about 30 degrees F, at one time it could have been much warmer. NASA claims to have found the formation in August and plans to revisit the formation soon. Why they have put something like this on the back burner is beyond me. I mean, although someone could argue that water or erosion could have formed these rocks, I would think it unlikely considering the contrast in color and uniformity of the thickness of the "vein".
