Looks like an industrial estate on the right .... think-smiley
The last interglacial had less ice, higher sea levels, and warmer temperatures than this one. So, according to the evidence so far, human activity must have a COOLING effect.

Well, I thought it looked like an Iraqi tank after "Desert Storm"!

It does look like desert country, doesn't it?

It's a full circle - the debris on the right links with that on the left. Or am i wrong? Part of a full circle?

I wonder if pictures were sent back from the wreck, or if it's from another landing.

You are correct DW the photo is a full circle view and the "debris" is actually part of the rover!

I'm thinking of setting up an investment group to purchase land on Mars.

Here is your opportunity to get in on the ground floor. Expressions of interest, together with your deposits ($100,000) can be sent to the address I will provide. Don't miss out !! Send me a PM now for more details .....
