    I agree fully. I was just saying the first shot looks like Nevada.....or Nevada looks like Mars. Who knows.

    It does look a lot like a lot of the earth. And it should.

    I think it's wonderful. So much to see and learn.

    No need to go searching for baseless conspiracies.

    Telescopic beam with 360 cameras??? That rotate up down to over look the rover, I think NASA learned from the last one that got stuck, With this they can see what is up and how to fix it if it ever does get stuck.

    But where's the beam? There is nothing protruding from the rover.

    I'm sure it has a lot more dedicated co-processors (like for image processing and communication) that can be powered down than the iPhone. :p

    Keep in mind that most of the power is used for moving.


    That looks so Earth-like. :eek:


    The camera is likely positioned so it can't take a picture of the armature holding it.
