Date of discovery: February 11, 2016
Location of discovery: Mars
Today the rover drove over an ancient face with its metal tires. There are three photos of this face. Taken Feb 10, 2015 at 11:06:18 UTC on Sol 1249 of Curiosity.
The tread marks go across the face, the the rover changes directions after driving over it. I wonder...did the scientists at see or even care about what they drove over? Curiosity it seems has become blind to its publicly publicized mission, but instead has a mission unknown to the public.
If the statue of David by Michelangelo was burried entirely except for his face, would the public walk over it and ignore it? Even on Earth people are more curious about the unknown, than the rover named after it. NASA scientists seem to make their own rules as they go, regardless of the unethical standards and the damage they cause to art thousands of years old.
