    As limited intellectual beings it is most difficult to grasp that which we can neither fully explore or relate to but it is in us all too open our minds to new discoveries...

    To underline the great difficulty in finding life on Mars we must consider this fact that there are countless undiscovered species on Earth alive and fossilised and the many billions of humans havent discovered these yet so the odds of discovering life on other planets that many be isolated, microbial or both but fossilised are extremely poor.

    LATEST STOP PRESS EVIDENCE , by clicking the snapshot icon in the bottom left of the gigapan screen, and double clicking the first snapshot, evidence can clearly be seen with additional comments of a subsurface network of unknown substance, pervading the subsurface strata of this area on Mars, notice in particular that the tubular areas intersect with points on the lip of the over-hanging edge that then appear green, and that there are other areas in this image where green points can be seen breaking the surface from a tubular type raised area( see the snap-shop with the strange vertical protrusion, then see the latter mentioned items below to the left of it)

    This image is correct as to the importing from the NASA billion-pixel panoramic public image though because of imperfect lighting conditions when the photo was taken, I have adjusted it by altering the image colour curve and using a tiny bit of sharpen mask to bring out the finer detailing as you would with a digital camera snapshot that was dull and grainy, the results are outstanding and many interesting items can be seen that are very unusual at this ancient lake bed location.

    My whole objective being a CCTV engineer and viewing all this data is in letting people know that all optics are scientific instruments and we should always respect digital images as much as chemical analysis and any other instrument,Take for instance all the work done on working out all the flavours of past life on earth using countless devices and processes and yet we cant know what the creatures looked like or how they lived as good as say one snapshot of them with a simple camera which of course is impossible but we take pictures of Mars almost everyday and take little notice of them.There are so many ways that better camera systems could be deployed on Mars in many spectrum's to deliver the most important data and I look forward to the technologies proper implementation.

    For me a very interesting observation involves studying peoples reactions to planetary surface images and the average persons ability to understand what form, colour or shape an extraterrestrial would take relative to its own trinity. I supposed the overall conclusion from these thoughts is that we all live in very confined positions and concious states from our own environment and how we relate to it and the grander picture of our place in the universe and its dimensional flavour.

    Creating more advanced rovers or better still androids that can excavate below the surface of ancient river and lake beds or at possible water outflows points at the base of Mt sharp is the next challenge along with having a clear policy to do real analysis for bugs using an electron microscope.The race is on!
