    Fascinating... looks kind of like corral. Is that from water or just wind blown erosion? Or both?

    Have you solved the biggest mystery about Mars?

    Why is it so red? Iron oxide?

    That is really fucking interesting. Definitely water. 50mm? That's really close for a fucking droid. Nice portrait. Holy shit, I'm still digesting this. Awesome. FKNA.

    The robotic arm ops folks regularly get us to 2cm and 1cm from the surface. I'm still amazed it is possible, and they haven't slammed the camera into a rock(yet).
