    Rovers have several cameras. Some of them are color cameras (like mastcam and navcam) others b/w. All these images are raw and unedited.

    i had an argument with my in laws because they did not believe humans had ever sent anything to mars, just the moon.

    I'm embarrassed to say that I have a family member that is convinced that the Moon Landing was faked.

    personally i think its a mix of both - we made it there, but some footage/photos etc may be re-creations, due to low quality imagery or equipment failures.

    I just wish we'd go back to the moon. Any hope of interstellar, or even deeper into our own solar system, is going to require some kind of off planet base/station. For instance, building a ship in space that would be much more capable because it doesn't have to worry about exiting a planet's gravity well, or atmosphere.

    moon bases have a severe issue with static electricity causing moondust buildup - moonbases have been delayed for that specific reason. anything temporarily there just gets gunked up and chewed up.

    It doesn't have to be a moon base, like I said, it could also be a larger station type thing. I'm not saying it's going to happen any time soon, but I think it is more likely than launching massive ships from Earth, building ships in space, that is.

    Just give the solar panels giant wiper blades, lol.
