The infamous 'Air Bag Bunny' surfaces yet again!

You'd think that is an almost 10 year old photo clearly showed a bone or a snail, then Curiosity would currently be looking for bones and snails on Mars.

Could you please identify the "perfect circles" you are referring to?  What is it that "looks like a sun"?

And no, I'm not making any claims about perfect circles.   I didn't mention perfect circles, you're the only person talking about perfect circles, which you have yet to identify or justify.

What are you talking about?

look here please;

You think this is a perfect circle? I could draw a cleaner circle in the sand at my local beach with a stick.

Here's a couple of views of the airbags when inflated, taken during testing by NASA,  Notice a familiar circle and line pattern in the seams of them?

Did you click on Hazzards link....

"Our team believes that this odd-looking feature is a piece of soft material that definitely came from our vehicle," said Rob Manning, lead engineer for entry, descent and landing. "We cannot say exactly where it came from but we can say that there are several possibilities: cotton insulation, Vectran covers and wraps from the airbag,Zylon bridle tensioning ties, or felt insulation from the gas generators.... The list goes on.

We do not think this is parachute material, however, due to its color (it does not look blue enough to be the undyed nylon or red enough to be the dyed nylon).

Wait , what?

You are saying that those land traces representing a perfect circle and it's line coincidentally looking like a sun have been created when the airbag snapped revealing the lander? Where is the airbag then?



:clap: :clap:  This just made my morning - a sun picture on mars 'conveniently' near the rover!!! Classic! Did you know there's also a lake up there with lush green vegetation around it? Lake Tau?

Do you even bother to read what other people post?  Or was this post an attempt at a joke?

Ok, so my statements were more fictional on the subject. I,ve added the element "what if " just to see the reaction of the most majority here. It is extraordinary how unprepared some of you can be and not ready to embrace the probability of alien life, no matter how thin this should be. Same as UFO's on earth where i would personally need solid evidence to believe they are real but that is not undermining my curiosity and readiness for acceptance  or that something required to dig for more explanations. Most of you are not even open to this concept, which obviously is adding an unhealthy conversational environment affecting dialogs. It seems some have made a purpose or hobby in debunking stories or sightings but what truly must be understood here is the necessity of maintaining an alert stage and bring up the benefit of the doubt in very story. What if or maybe should be the elements every debunker should think about before letting their judgement be influenced by believes or pointless determination.

I found similarities in the scientific community where scientists responsible to study of data indicating potential life on other planets would simply evaluate with reticence starting from the. premises that we are alone in universe.

It will never work like that unfortunately. It has been proven on earth that only with enthusiasm and faith/dedication to the cause  major discoveries have been produced including.

Contrary to how some of the believers do their investigation (looking only for the stuff that supports their preconceived notion) there are others that do this by falsification. Trying our best to debunk a claim, a photo, youtube video or whatever, just to see if it holds water.

The "bunny" does not.
