Gentlemen, I think Stu means "Discuss of the shape of the coating that looks like an ancient map of Mars" (see previous posts)...but I might be wrong laugh.gif

Well, it rather looks like a prediction sent by Martians for our future : the Earth as seen AFTER a global sea level rise by global warming (America is at left and what's left of Europe on the right...) laugh.gif

Does anyone else think Oppy has found her companion?

That was such a cute game xD.

And yeah, I think we'll stay here a bit. This rock seems to be crying out for attention.

A gentle whack and then turn through the pages of time.

I really like the way that the fissures on the sides stop at some of the layering. Those layers are just waiting to be pried apart with a chisel.

First MI images are up at exploratoium ...
here is a very quick try of a 3D shape-from-shading DEM ... unoptimized and uncalibrated as I havn't used the method for MI/rock images before.
Not sure if this could be of any use geologically (*), I was just curious what it would look like :-)

(*) probably more for entertainment: something like a fly-through video over MI rock images wink.gif

Try comparing the technique to results in here - http://an.rsl.wustl.edu/mer/merbrowser/mer...al.aspx?rover=2 - to see how accurate it is.

mud cracks

Or more properly, shrinkage cracks (of which mud cracks are probably the best-known terrestrial example). They can occur in many different rock types that have undergone bulk shrinkage owing to drying, cooling, or weathering (with leaching). They also occur in concrete.

The MI's are targetting a part of the "rind" (whatever it is). Here's the portion covered so far, roughly outlined in black on Stu's fabulous colour view:

Basically, this gives us a closeup view of the western Canada portion of "North America". Excellent place to start.

On the other hand, according to this Martian map, it looks like a big chunk of western Canada/US is missing and presumably has slipped into the Pacific. sad.gif Another "prediction"? ohmy.gif wink.gif

Hey, Fred, this is a highly impertinent request, but any chance you could throw a couple of your famous Shadow Men around Concepcion? That sense of scale you provide is a great thing. (But no pressure if you got things to do, man; I can definitely relate!) smile.gif

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

"it looks like a big chunk of western Canada/US is missing "

It's the old 'Mer de L'ouest'. Must have been the old Admiral's inspiration.
