whatever it is, it's interesting!

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Does it really look very much like a Flower? It could well be some sort of rock formation, or crystal or something.

well in fairness the word 'flower' wasn't used by anyone at NASA...

Mars is a wasteland... probably created by some type of nuclear holocaust. NASA will try to hide all the planks of wood, plastics etc that the rover photographs... to keep us all from absolute panic. Do you think they have sent that rover up there to study clay ??? ....... They are studying the former civilization... or whats left of it...... and pretending to us that ......once again.,.. we are the SOLE occupants of this universe.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!

Headline grabbing trash!!

I wish people wouldn't waste other peoples time by headlineing some random fleck of rock as a Flower.

Edited to add. My gripe is against those so-called news sources, not the op.

I believe all pics and data from the rovers are released into the public domain... (public as opposed to secret).....why should they hide anything?

It is a tissue dropped by an alien who had a runny nose.   If it were a flower there would be several of them, because there must be a breeding population if a life form is to survive.

Oh, you'd be surprised. According to some there's two quite distinct levels being done by NASA; the 'public' side, releasing boring pictures of rock, and the more exciting, secret side, that's concentrating in explroing the ruins of cities & technology.

I see nothing interesting. I just looks like a crystal formation peaking out of that bed of rock. Its crazy the things people "see" in these Mars pics.

You will now give examples..

Before doing so, I strongly suggest you do a little more research (especially into the reasons for those 'data blanks'), or this isn't going to go well for you...

All my posts about Apollo are dedicated to the memory of MID - who knew, lived and was an integral part of, Apollo.

"Like the JFK assassination conspiracy theories, the UFO issue probably will not go away soon, no matter what the CIA does or says. The belief that we are not alone in the universe is too emotionally appealing and the distrust of our government is too pervasive to make the issue amenable to traditional scientific studies or rational explanation and evidence." - Gerald K Haines
