You see a lot of stuff on Mars which is clearly not natural but anybody's guess as to what it actually is, basically just mechanical junk and debris strewn across the sands. Then again you see a certain number of things which appear familiar enough and the thing in this image which may actually be a hand weapon of some sort is questionable. The cylinder you see at the back of the thing points upwards so that if it actually is some sort of a hand weapon, it must have worked on some totally different principle from any pistol ever seen on Earth.

The shape is clearly that of an automatic pistol not a revolver and therefore wouldnt have a cylinder. The protuberance is in the area of what would be the rear portion of the slide where the saftey or where you would grip the slide to retract it. If this is not photo shopped it looks exactly like a typical 9mm handgun.

@gungasnake,
Photoshoped. Mr Gungasnake please stop wasting the worlds time by bringing this pointless nonsense and claiming it as science

And besides...ecveryone knows that a mars gun would look like this:

@gungasnake,
Why would a Martian with tentacles, use a gun, so similar to what humans use?

What you see here

On this website you find true color images taken by the Panoramic Camera on each of the Marsrovers Spirit and Opportunity. This is how images would look like, if an astronaut on the surface of Mars took images with a 1 Megapixel digital camera and sent them back to Earth via a planet wide Internet. That means, the colors appear the same as the astronaut would see them.

On the left you see two columns of number pairs. The number before the colon represents the Martian solar day (Sol) since the landing of each Rover. The link leads to an album page with almost all color images taken on that day. The number behind the colon is the number of images available on that album page.

Note, that the color images are created automatically from all raw color data available. That means, there are also images which do not represent true color as they have been taken with filters outside the wavelength range of the human eye.

Those images marked with a dark grey border (name suffix _L4L5L5L5L6) are the true color ones.

The color and contrast of these images appear different than those shown on the official NASA JPL Marsrovers Website. If you like to know why, continue reading below.



How the images are created

The images are automatically created daily from raw data available at JPL Marsrovers Gallery.

MER2RGB processing
Fig.1: The image creation process applied to all images on this website (MER2RGB-process):
3 raw images are taken through the red (L4), green (L5) and blue (L6) filter with the Rover Panoramic Camera.
The red and green images are combined (each pixel value summarized) with weighting 70/30; the same is done with blue and green.
The results from step 2 are combined into one color image.
Every Martian day (Sol) new raw images are downloaded. The raw images are black & white images, each taken through a colored glass (filter) by the Panoramic Camera on the Rover. By using 3 filters, each one only letting pass red, green and blue light, a true color image can be created. This is in principle the same as every common photo or video camera creates color images.

The Rover Panoramic Camera differs from normal digital cameras by having filters with smaller bandwidth resulting in images with appear as having too much color saturation. To counteract this effect a special but simple processing is done as follows:

By combining the black & white images from two filters a visual effect is created as the image would have been taken through one filter with wider bandwidth. The result is a good approximation to true natural colors.

As the Rover Panoramic Camera contains more than only red, green and blue filters there are more combinations available to create color images. The images created with these additional filters (L2, L3 and L7) show slightly different colorizations as L2 and L3 pass only light of near infrared wavelengths and L7 pass only violet light. However, with the MER2RGB-process described above the overall colors approximate true colors sufficiently. That means, the soil looks still "Earth-like" and the sky is still blue to white.

You can find more detailed explanations about the Panoramic Camera and its filters on pages at cornell.edu, planetary.org and highmars.org.

@gungasnake,
Doesn't change the fact, that it is a genuine picture of a rock, and that you are a moron.

@gungasnake,
Just because a rock looks like something else doesn't mean it really is something else. It's the same with clouds, patterns in the linoleum and Virgin Mary-like images on pieces of toast. Was there something missing in your early education?

@Pearlylustre,
I am reminded of the joke about the psychiatrist who shows several Rorschach blots to a man, who responds with remarks like--"That looks like two dogs doin' it," or "That looks like two whales doin' it," or "That's definitely a fat guy and a fat lady doin'it." Eventually, the shrink tells the guy that he seems to be obsessed with sex.

"Me ? ! ? ! ? You're the one with all the dirty pictures, Doc."

BULLSHIT. That's a ******* rock with a feature that makes it look like an automatic pistol if that pistol had a fucked up slide.
