    Uh... road? I see an area that looks sort of groomed, in the way a ski trail might be groomed. Could easily be caused by high winds. But I don't see anything that qualifies as a road.

    How else are you going to get the transextrapodepodulator in there? The martians may be extinct, but they're not stupid.

    the road is just an illusion. Pay no attention to the route 65 sign either.

    Is that the first view of our planet from the surface of another planet?

    That's an official affirmative.

    I thought the spot looked interestingly clean myself. If its caused by wind- I doubt that the wind is strong enough to even move much more than a pebble- then its because the wind has blow dust on top of the rocks. It might be a good exit route for spirit to go by whenit heads for the East hills (right hand of picture).

    No big deal, it it an image of the landing craft as seen from the Rover,



    But for all your geological/ rock morphology buffs check out the rock on the left with the large scriation ( linear gouge from left to right ) .What do you think caused that ?



    Glaciation., wind, water what ?

    Or possibly extreme hot and cold...



    Maybe it's Jessica Collisson's eyelash.

    Not so fast fellas.



    The Moon is a 'planet' in its own right.



    But it just happens to be in orbit around the Earth.



    In fact Ganymede and Titan as "moons" are larger than Mercury.



    The moon isn't really that far behind in size to Mercury either.



    So my guess is the Apollo guys did it first.

    That is proof positive that president Kennedy not only launched a mission to the Moon but to Mars as well.



    ie: those soundstage people haven't gotten any better at making things look 'real'.

    Why are the clusters of rocks'n'stuff that happen to be closest to the camera so bright?

    Because the rocks in the background are smothered in the shadow of a giant Martian monument off to the left. (not shown)

    Remember all these images are patched together from a crapload of photographs probably through a day so the light could change from hour to hour, maybe? thats at least my theory.
