This is a link to a false colour image taken by the Opportunity Mars
Rover in Endurance crater.

It shows 7 Rock Abrasion Tool holes that have been bored into the
layers exposed within the crater to enable other instruments on the
rover to investigate further.

In the lower levels there appears to be a discontinuity where the type
of material dramatically changes. The interesting thing about this is
that the number of blueberries seems to increase by an order of
magnitude in the lower levels.


Most people would have seen the next photo before- Earth rise from the
moon, Apollo 11.


NASA seems to be in the business of changing the way we see things.

regards to all
