Yes, in one of the many videos I've watched (unfortunately I don't remember which one) they were talking about the lens having a cover. With a 2.5 billions cost it would be a shame not to have one LOL.
And the main reason for using the Skycrane was to prevent all the dust blown in the air by the rockets from damaging the sensitive equipment on the rover.



Curiosity took a photo of Aeolis Mons AKA Mount Sharp:

Sigh! It's the fabricated NASA moon landing photos conspiracy all over again!

You're probably talking about this photo, right? As you can see on all photos, there are similar "objects" everywhere: on the top left, top right, in the shadows, etc. It's probably some instruments or parts of the chassis being deformed and stretched by the lens.

Seriously, they have released like 5 or 6 different photos tops in two days. Does anyone really think the NASA would miss the "cameraman's finger"? (Or maybe it's ... A MARTIAN!!! LOL)

When it comes to believing in the supernatural and metaphysics, billions are ready to bow to the Easter Bunny or Tooth Fairy. But when it comes to great achievements, discoveries, inventions, etc. skepticism abounds. Ah, humanity! Rolling Eyes

In this photo "taken through a "fisheye" wide-angle lens on one of the rover's front Hazard-Avoidance cameras" you can more clearly see the parts that may have been deformed and mistaken for a "finger".

More great photos here.

Wow, thanks for sharing sleepsleep!

That Martian soil looks oddly similar to what I can find in some parts of my garden. LOL

I think it's too bad Curiosity probably won't be exploring those far "dark dune fields" on the bottom of the last photo. I'm really curious to what they look like.

we got some hidden secrets.

NASA reveals secrets it has hidden on Curiosity rover
http://www.indianexpress.com/news/nasa-reveals-secrets-it-has-hidden-on-curiosity-rover/993084/

Quote:

The track pattern — dot-dash-dash-dash, dot-dash-dash-dot, dot-dash-dot-dot (''.--- .--. .-..'') — spells out ‘JPL’ in Morse code, which translates letters and numbers into a series of short (“dot”) and long (“dash”) signals.


Quote:

A lucky penny is used to calibrate Curiosity’s camera system, and Curiosity is also said to be carrying cash.

The Morse code and patterns on the wheels used to measure distance already traveled is not really news.

What?! They thought little green men would be interested in useless green bills? o_O

great news!

http://www.altoonamirror.com/page/content.detail/id/563938/NASA-already-building-menu-for-planned-Mars-mission-in-2030s.html?nav=738

Quote:

HOUSTON - Through a labyrinth of hallways deep inside a 1950s-era building that has housed research that dates back to the origins of U.S. space travel, a group of scientists in white coats is stirring, mixing, measuring, brushing and, most important, tasting the end result of their cooking.

Their mission: Build a menu for a planned journey to Mars in the 2030s.

The menu must sustain a group of six to eight astronauts, keep them healthy and happy and also offer a broad array of food. That's no simple feat considering it will likely take six months to get to the Red Planet, astronauts will have to stay there 18 months and then it will take another six months to return to Earth. Imagine having to shop for a family's three-year supply of groceries all at once and having enough meals planned in advance for that length of time.

Curiosity rover 'sniffs' Martian air to measure its composition
http://zeenews.india.com/news/space/curiosity-rover-sniffs-martian-air-to-measure-its-composition_798288.html
Quote:

London: NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity has sucked Martian air into its big Sample Analysis at Mars (Sam) instrument to reveal the concentration of different gases.

This is the first time that the chemistry of the atmosphere has been tested from the surface of the planet since the Viking landers in the 1970s.

The Sam analysis will reveal whether Curiosity has detected a signal for methane.
