Here are two more recent stories from the Curiosity rover:

NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover Heads Toward Active Dunes

And . . .

Loss of Carbon in Martian Atmosphere Explained

It's summer in the southern hemisphere of Mars (just as it is here--although that's just coincidence--the orbital periods of Terra and Mars vary greatly), so that means that Curiosity is more active--it gets plenty of sunlight to charge its batteries.

I have not had time to read the comments I missed out on, on this thread, but I hope to soon.

This is a great thread. The "Blueberries" are first discussed around page 9, but that was before anyone started calling them Blueberries. It's fun to re-discover them all over again by rereading the thread.

NASA Spirit Rover: Silica Formation on Mars Spotted by Vehicle Could Hint at Alien Life, Astronomers Say
The formations, first seen in 2008, mimic those found in a Chilean desert and could have been created by microbes, Steven Ruff and Jack Farmer said at a American Geophysical Union meeting.

His name is Bruno and together with his two 'siblings' he is helping scientists embark on one of humankind's greatest adventures - the search for life on Mars.

Bruno belongs to a 'family' of three rover prototypes, the others are named Bridget and Bryan, which are testing the latest in planetary navigation technology.

In two years time, a six-wheeled machine with a 'brain' similar to Bruno's will be launched to the red planet as part of the ExoMars mission.

Anyone out there ever think that science - physics and engineering wille ver invent a commercially usable anti-graivty system that can be used to put heavy payloads into space, so that large inter-planetary space ships can be uilt, rather than using conventional chameical rockets for lift?

Anti-Gravity would be wonderful, but it is so far outside the realm of physics currently that it is little better than magic.

At present our entire technology derives from manipulation of Electromagnetism and virtually nothing else. We have no technology based on the Strong Nuclear force or the Weak Force, and we haven't a clue how to manipulate gravity.

Also, the ramifications of being able to manipulate Gravity would probably render our very view of space and time and matter as antiquated to the point where we probably wouldn't even have a need to worry about payloads or distances any more. The change in our perception of physics would be that profound.

@CostaCoffeeBob,
What is far more plausible would be a space elevator. You can read a Wikipedia article about the space elevator concept by clicking here. It would not, at any event, require the use of liquid or solid fuel rockets. The main problem with such a project right now is its probable cost.
