NASA's Curiosity Rover Just Took The Most Incredible Pictures Yet Of The Martian Surface


NASA's Curiosity rover has been travelling to the lower part of Mount Sharp on Marian surface, and the rover just shared some color images that provide us extraordinary sights of the bizarre rock formations on the Red Planet. 


As you can see from the images posted here in article, Mars seems to be strangely familiar, and it has acquired researcher’s attention. Curiosity project scientist, Ashwin Vasavada, said:
 "Curiosity's science team has been thrilled to go on this road trip through a bit of the American desert Southwest on Mars,
These images were taken by the rover on September 8 in the Murray Buttes area on the lower planes of Mount Sharp, which makes the central peak inside Mars’s colossal Gale crater. As the name suggests, the Murray Buttes area is occupied with formations called buttes and mesas, which are like minor, rocky uplands rising up from the mountain slope.


These were formed over millions of years due to weathering and corrosion, buttes appears to be tall, flat-topped, and steep-sided, and seems to form from bigger mesas or plateaus.


NASA’s Curiosity Rover has been travelling through the Murray Buttes area of Mount Sharp for over a month, and it is now prepared to move on and travel to the higher parts the mountain - but not before it finishes its newest drilling crusade on the southernmost butte of the area.


So take a good look at these images and remember that this is Mars, and its 225 million km (140 million miles) away from Earth.

  1. You bet I will post a comment- For the longest time I have tried to get NASA and others to look into my 41 years of research . I can stand the world on it's ear {IF ONLY} I could get you anyone to look into my 41 years of research {Seriously} I am excited right now because {I CAN} Show or teach NASA things they do not know about these pictures Seriously again. I need so much for any of you to visit me at 38301 Zip Code How hard can it be to look into news that will rock the world ? YOU would never regret the visit and it would be the greatest thing you ever did in all your life .

Yes Yo{YOU} Can rock the world all I want is to see all that can be done with all my years of research please Trust me .
    Also do not think I am a Tennessee Hick I retired here and do not want to be confused with these people . In these pictures I can show you images of people Tools etc. That if these are from Mars because either way there is images of tools and life in these pictures. There has always been a way that images here on earth have been saved and in this case the same thing and I can get images of People , animals, events and more on earth from the earth's past and now here..........Take a chance and get a NOBEL PRIZE Just for being the one to look into this and bringing it to the world.
