I'd like to comment on this but I don't even believe in Mars. But seriously, what ever is in that picture looks to be the size of a toe nail clipping or smaller. How they got 'flower' out of it I have no idea.

Yeh but bear in mind NASA didn't call it a flower...it was someone at ATS according to the story.  but if you see the full sized raw image here

http://mars.jpl.nasa...1000E1_DXXX.jpg

and do a diagonal to the top right corner at full zoom, it looks like there is another 'bit', so most likely just something crystalline in the rock...

seriously tho - what does anyone expect to see? Daffodils?

It surely is just some form of crystaline protrusion. But even that is more interesting than the endless pictures of dusty rock etc. Ooens up questions as to what it's forned from, etc...

And do you ever contradict yourself? Well, yes and no...

I though Allan Boyle's comment was good, first thing I thought it looked like was a wrapper as well.

This is very interesting indeed, have we something new altogether? I hope so.

From the link, this really caught my eye:

I believe life may have started there and seeded earth, there is the Mars rock found with organisms,even though there is a debate.  Mars has the largest volcano in our solar system,it may have exploded ending life`s bacteria before it got started.

It does not look like a flower to me either, it looks like bleached white crab shells in the sand.

What ever it is it's cool to me, it's a picture of something on Mars!  That is so amazing to me!  Clear pictures of whatever on a different planet...that just blows my mind!  LoL!  :D

Ohh Mars is very real, it's the moon that is a hoax.

There is nothing at all to suggest this is organic, much less anything 'out of the ordinary'. It could be an exposed bit of crystal. The rock does have a sedimentary look to it though, it could be any number of things however there isn't anything to suggest it isn't geological in nature.

What I do not get is there is a lab on board Curiosity - SAM. Can we not scoop it up and have a good look at it? Vaporise it and see what happens maybe? (BREAKING NEWS New volatile substance found on Mars. Curiosity mission suddenly over)

What I find most interesting is that it is the second anomaly in that very area.

You know what they say! Curiosity killed the cat!

What the hell the cat was doing on Mars in the first place I have no idea...................... :unsure2:

But I agree. It does look very geological in nature. More like a polished and perhaps metallic surface.
