Martian Skies [amazing photos of Mars]
Martian Skies
June 20, 2008 11:42 AM


Yesterday's announcement by NASA of the discovery of water ice on Mars by its Phoenix Lander probe made big news everywhere. The discovery involved the observation of water ice sublimating into the air - that is, the water went from solid to vapor state without reaching the liquid stage. The Martian atmosphere has perfect conditions for sublimation - extremely thin, dry and cold. How cold? Well, you can check the Live Martian Weather Report, with data from a station on board the Phoenix Lander. Today will see a high temperature of a toasty -26 degrees F.

What more do we know about Mars' atmosphere? It's hundreds of times thinner than Earth's atmosphere and is made of 95% carbon dioxide, 3% nitrogen, 1.6% argon, and contains traces of oxygen, water, and methane. We also know, from observations that it can support dust storms, dust devils, clouds and gusty winds. With an amazing number of six current live probes exploring Mars (two rovers, a lander, and three orbiters), there are many thousands of images available. Only a few, however show atmospheric phenomena. Presented here are some of the best images of Martian atmosphere (and beyond) in action. (17 photos total)

Too bad that they are still messing around with the "color correction" on these photos.

Take a look at the second pic in the series in your link:

They've cranked up the red so much that it makes the silicon cells look gray instead of blue. And the border areas in between the cells are orange-ish instead of silvery aluminum...

Also, if I'm not mistaken, the tape wrapping the control wire bundle on the sampling arm should be Kapton. That should be a dark bronze-ish brown. But with the red cranked up it looks almost like gold mylar!

(If it really is mylar then color me stupid. But the colors on this shot - and most of the rest of them - look hopelessly botched)

On second look this may just be a thinner gauge of Kapton, which would look a lot like the transparent little squares applied to the little shovel bucket.

Hoagland published a lot about this. And Emporer Kenton did a lot of fine photo sleuthing as well.

They still need to correct that "color correction" though...

Weed can kiss my ass.

But no narcotics?


That would be a downside.


I'd still go if there was net though.

If you pan to the far right of the "McMurdo" picture (about the 9th one down) you can see where the rover has clearly driven through liquid--tracks are muddy.

The last picture in the link of the Earth and Moon hanging in the Martian sky gives me chills.

It just makes me realize how truly tiny and insignificant we really are in the Universe, and in the grand scheme of things.

Tooooooo bad they photoshopped the sky first. Look at the right edge of Mars, you can still see the original boundry. Sad really.

Re: Martian Skies [amazing photos of Mars]
Those dust devil pics piss me off too.

When those were first released, they showed more of the sky. In two of the pics you can see a black object flying in the sky, almost following one of the dust storms.



Anyone remember that?

Yea, false color images to deny the obvious, if there are dust devils, clouds, air to fill the parachute to slow the descent of the entry vehicles, then there is plenty of atmosphere on Mars.

Typical government agency, lies and more lies, they just look even worse as people realize what how they have been screwed out of the truth over the years...
