Sols 4157-4158: What is That??

Curiosity finds odd rocks with "dragon scales" texture.
"We have seen a lot of layered rocks over the last 12 years on Mars, but these ones really stand out by the dizzying pattern they trace on the rock surfaces."

wow what a fascinating Martian sight, wish there were a dual stereo pair of images to see this one in 3D!

This image was taken by the Left Navigation Camera onboard NASA's Mars rover Curiosity on Sol 4155 (2024-04-14).

Absolutely fascinating Stereo3D view of this Martian landscape.

Many thanks to @PaulHammond51 for finding the right-eye view from the rover's R-Nav Cam.

To get the Stereo3D effect, just let your eyes' line of sight be parallel (not cross-eyed) with left eye in front of left image and right eye in front of right image.

How much does a solar eclipse dim daylight on Mars?

The animation shows 's capture of a solar eclipse by Phobos on March 25, 2019 (Sol 2358). Phobos is small and does not fully cover the disk of the sun, so dimming is noticeable but not comparable to that of a total eclipse on Earth.

#experiment tagging @mozilla @mozilla @firefox @firefox to see if this post shows up on #lemmy .

Apparently your mastodon posts show up on Lemmy under the right circumstances (tagging a Lemmy community). 🤞

Edit: if I remove the tagging, will the post magically disappear from Lemmy too?

For mastodon users wondering about this, here's the corresponding Lemmy thread: https://lemmy.ml/post/13358920

@mozilla @firefox I see multiple upvotes, but only one boost.

Further, the boost only seems to apply to the top post, not to the replies.

Do you know the number four-twenties nineteen? What about the number nine and ninety? numbers can look very different in other languages

At the same time is stuffing his pockets with billions of taxpayer money from contracts with NASA, JPL lays off personnel.

JPL sent , , , and many other spacecraft to Mars and to other to do science and to try breakthrough technologies.

For a back-of-the-envelope calculation of how many Mars missions (read: JPL jobs) could one Musk's wealth support, see here:

I'm gonna ask a question. It's just something I'm curious about and intrigued to see the reasons. Privacy is, after all, up to each individual...

If you don't have a photo of you on your profile... why?
