Why is this photo so out of focus?

A piece of  a vein of ore protruding from the surface of a rock. Of course if you want to look at it differently,you could say that it was the handle of a door that was to open the inner workings of the underworld. LOL The protuberance of a vein of an ore that,with the passing of time,has not eroded & has a shiny un-eroded effect,being that the atmosphere has not eroded it's surface provides clues to the inner workings of a still active inner core of molten excretions of a yet still heated inner core of a planet that still could be active.This activity could have happened many many years ago!The fact that the metal has not been eroded shows signs of a recent expulsion of a molten excretion.This planet is still active.It does not show signs of inactivity & death,as other analysis have tried to prove.Mars is still an active planet..Just because the upper surface & atmospheric  conditions prove otherwise,it still has the inner workings of an active inner core,regardless of the fact that it's atmosphere appears to be one of a planet with the dynamics of an Earth like planet.

Looks like a much eroded fulgurite, the glassy fused remains of a lightning strike. Now doesn't that conjure fanciful ideas of a past atmosphere and ... rain.

A lightening strike seems much more explanatory to me in regards to the metallic structure that we see in the picture.The ionospheric conditions that would induce the magnetospheric requirements of the Earth's magnetic field would explain the structure of the metallic protuberance.EG,Lightening strikes cause many of the unexplained occurrances in the Earth's physical structure.The magnetic field that the Earth creates in a time of a violent electro magnetic surge such as lightening surprizes many of us.None of us know the magnetic  upheaval caused by the electric impulses of the Earth.Sand can be turned to glass etc!

It's not.

It's a blowup of a small area of a much larger photograph.  This is what happens when you expand a photo beyond its native resolution.

Is the shiny object a metallic mineral? The great majority of these on Earth are oxides and sulfides of iron---magnetite, hematite, and pyrites (fool's gold). This isn't a bad bet for Mars, too. We know the planet has substantial iron. It's famous red color is caused by the oxidation of iron.
I looked through literally hundreds of picturess of each of the above named minerals, on Google image. I found none that looked like the object photographed on Mars, nor that suggested that any of them would be expected to assume the weird, branching shape, suggested by the photographs made by Curiosity.

If NASA takes a close look at this object they will just grind (or laser) it to dust and then say "What tiny intelligently made object?"

What's that link about? I don't see any potential intelligently made object in that micro rock image.
I take it you're saying the subject of this thread is an intelligently made object, then. Well, as we all know- there's no end of uses for a 5mm wobbly blob.

Ok... so now.... any thoughts or possible exploration ideas from NASA on this one ?.
And the flower, which was the "size of a grain of sand" ... anything else on that one?
What about the "rock" that looks like a plank of wood - weathered and all, discovered by Opportunity?
Appears that anything looking like a weird item.... when looked at by "a random person from the internet" ie. me and you appears not what the yet to be commissioned
Curiosity is going to investigate.
Looking at clay, boring holes in rocks, thats what its there for. But when something really odd turns up... just bypass it and forget it?
Nope I dont think so...... everything NASA tells us is GOSPELL... just ask Waspie. Heaven forbid that we even attempt to question it.

I think just on pyramids. Some of them are 10 times bigger then Khufu.
There are pyramids in Egypt which looks like a hill because time and environment.

So a pyramid is a pyramid,... and a hill is also a pyramid??

There sure are lots of pyramids.

I still await the compelling Exhibit A.

There seems to be a background paranoia here that anything NASA finds they are going to hide.  Seems to me if they found an artifact they would pop the champaign and party for a week.  All their careers would be made.
