I reckon there is a planet out there full of odd socks, OUR odd socks and NASA know all about it, but the government will not allow them to tell us, hence we keep buying more socks!!!
That reminds me of 'The Black Hole' Ren and Stimpy episode where they find the gigantic mountain of all the worlds missing left socks. :tu:

This is what the face on mars really is.  The government is covering it up!

yeah right!!!!

there is no guinea pig in that photo!

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Is this the same guy that kept finding sign after sign of "life" in the rover images? Anything that looked a bone was a bone. Anything that looked like a fossil was a fossil. Anything that looked square was an artifact from an ancient civilization. If something looked like something, it simply had to be that thing and nothing else.

One of images showing UFO/Dead Pixels is quite interesting... I dont currently own Photoshop, but if someone does then I would suggest increasing the Parameters for Pixel Definition (Zoom) to explain what we are looking at. Back in the day, I was on the design team for the Altea Professional Satelite Receiver (originally for Newscorp, later sold to Tandberg Television) and this does not look like any sort of Digital Artefact to me.

Maybe a Dust Devil picked up some debris and "floated" it around
The "Guinea Pig" a rock, the "Human" finger is a rock... nothing to see there...IMO

If it's the following picture you're talking about, I don't think anybody is seriously suggesting it's "dead pixels".

Here's what you see if you zoom in without applying any smoothing filters.

It's not a digital artefact in itself, but it does contain heavy elements of JPEG artefacting. Hard to know exactly what we're looking at as it's only a handful of pixels across and has been distorted by the JPEG compression process.

The following picture however, is almost certainly dead pixels (note that it has been inversed and then recolorised from the original which had black dots against the sky):

Posted Image

It's easy to simulate it using Photoshop.  Put a couple of blank white pixels on a brown gradient background, save it at low JPEG quality, and then resize it upward a bit with bicubic filtering on and you'll get pretty much the same thing.  The fact that the same series of images on NASA's website all contain the same 2 little blobs in the exact same place in each picture is further evidence that it's a camera defect of some sort.

Please!! Thats no alien craft/UFO in the distance,... its a bug flying close to the camera.

I still await the compelling Exhibit A.

Ever notice how you find only one shoe on the road? Or missing one sock from the dryer?
It's some kind of darn cosmic conspiracy I tell ya. :passifier:

Yeah, I walk bike paths with my dog daily and I am always amazed by articles of clothing left on the path.  And for sure, dryers eat socks.

I expect the evidence that is under question is something besides a picture.  More along the lines of analysis of a dirt sample.  It will probably be something exciting to scientist, but not particularly exciting to the rest of us.

I do not know what it is, but "a bug"???
:alien: So there are bugs flying around on the surface of mars? :alien:  which means there is life there after all. :alien:

I'm leaning towards flying saucer myself.

i had to think about that for a moment. Very subtle. No, it's clearly flares.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

Anyway, I suppose this'll be what that Announcement that NASA have Announced the're going to make, the one that'll "rewrite the History books", will be about. :innocent:

You're all seeing things, it's obviously an aircraft, possibly a passenger plane.

It's a hoax; the martians are notorious for that kind of thing.
