My thoughts exactly Chandre. When I heard about the laser I was astonished. I dont think that an advanced civilization would see this as a peaceful intrusion.

I have downloaded the picture the HIRISE took of the lander with its parachute out and enhanced it (slightly, I know you warned me about this) but there seems to be some structure very close to where it landed. There is not much "geometrical" structure anywhere else in the pic either.

Do you think we are getting close to disclosure? Or just more of the same?Mars_Science_Laboratory_Lander_from_HiRISE2.JPG

And we all wait with bated breath for the 'shutters' to come off and a digital colour image to be sent that can compete with a 5-year old using my cell phone cam.

Pity you cannot zoom or video on the cameras put on board a 2.5 billion dollar machine that weighs one ton as that technology was just too heavy for the machine (but we are assured that it is almost the same)  !

Is plutonium heavy ?

Oh, and the image of a colour-blind, cataract handicapped, sniffer dog, armed with a laser cannon and nucleur-powered roaming around Mars as our 'official' representative is NOT tickling my funny bone !

Talk about jumping the gun (or premonition), but It seems the Washington post has now pulled the Video/story and placed this notice.....

This video was published inadvertently and has been removed.

Wow - And I thought it wasn't due to land until Sunday to Monday (depending on your timezone!

What a scoop from the Washington Post!

NASA's Curiosity rover successfully touches down on Mars!!

See the "most popular videos" group at the bottom of this article:

When you click on the video though, you get a message that the video was posted inadvertently. Wow, I can't wait to see that video now.

Check back here for Curiosity's first images.

All of the raw images Curiosity sends back from Mars will be located here in the futu

let's get infrared cams, night vision and a mic up there too.




And don't forget a fuji camera too aww

Mars Curiosity – An Outlook.

 

 

http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/mission/overview/

„......Scheduled to launch in the fall of 2011, Mars Science Laboratory is part of NASA's Mars Exploration Program, a long-term effort of robotic exploration of the red planet. Mars Science Laboratory is a rover that will assess whether Mars ever was, or is still today, an environment able to support microbial life. In other words, its mission is to determine the planet's "habitability."...“

„.....

 

Meyer adds, "The most important difference is that Spirit and Opportunity aren't analytical labs – they are more for observing. This newest rover will be performing a more comprehensive study of the Martian environment."

Remote sensing instruments located on Curiosity's mast will scout around for promising targets and perform some long-distance analysis before the vehicle moves in for a closer look.

"Curiosity will have a laser on its mast that can take aim at a rock and vaporize a small spot on it," says Crisp. "This produces a plasma cloud that tells us about that rock's chemistry. We'll look at the light reflected off the cloud to characterize rocks and soils from up to 9 meters away. We’ll be able to classify minerals, ices, and organic molecules without having to drive as much."

The mast also sports a high-resolution camera called, naturally, Mastcam. It will observe, photograph, and videotape geological structures and features, like craters, gullies, and dunes.

…..

The rover's robotic arm wields its own unique instruments. APXS, the Alpha Particle X-Ray Spectrometer, will measure the abundance of chemical elements in the dust, soils, rocks, and processed samples. MAHLI, the Mars Hand Lens Imager, will return color images like those of typical digital cameras and act like a geologist's magnifying lens. Its images can be used to examine the structure and texture of rocks, dust, and frost at the micrometer to centimeter scale.

One laboratory instrument inside the rover's body will explore the red planet by "sniffing" the air, bird-dog style. SAM, short for Sample Analysis at Mars, has vents that open to the atmosphere to determine where to take samples, for example if it detects methane in the area.

"That's important because methane can be released by microbes," explains Crisp, "or by liquid water reacting with rock at depths under the surface. Water 'down under' could be a niche for subterranean life. SAM can also be used to sniff the gases released after baking a rock or soil sample in its oven.".....“
