NASA finally solves mystery of 'jelly doughnut' on Mars
CS Monitor ^ | 2/14/14 | AP story

Posted on 02/14/2014 3:49:26 PM PST by smokingfrog

Scientists have solved the mystery of the "jelly doughnut" rock on Mars that appeared to come out of nowhere.

NASA said Friday that a wheel of the rover Opportunity broke it off a larger rock and then kicked it into the field of view.

The Internet was abuzz last month when the space agency released side-by-side images of the same patch of ground. Only one image showed the rock, which was white around the outside and dark red in the middle, and less than 2 inches (5.08 centimeters) wide.

Well, if there are any dead dogs to go along with that donut, I’d say uLEO’s have invaded the planet. It is Mars, after all.

Because everybody knows NASA would hide evidence of life because they don’t want the massive funding increase that would come as a result. LOL

Bull Shit!

The rover is not on Mars. it is in some lab somewhere taking pictures that other scientists are studying. A lab asst. walked by and dropped something in the box. A picture was taken before he had a chance to remove it. Probably was a jelly doughnut.

Just another scam by the govt. They get a big budget to go to Mars and do all kinds of neat stuff for other to study and pour over for years to come. In reality it is in some basement somewhere costing next to nothing, showing nothing really new to anyone with the millions and millions being siphoned off for other nefarious services or just lining politicians pockets.

That sounds familiar. Wasn’t that the premise of an episode of Gilligan’s Island?

I remember that episode.

A meteorite landed and Gilligan walked into a tree he tripped over yesterday.

A cat saw a mouse. He drooled into a bucket. The bucket fell opening a door that released a bowling ball. The ball rolled down a track and hit a door. The door opened up and a ironing board fell out. As it fell out an iron fell of the board and hit a rock - chipping off a doughnut shaped chip to fly off and land right in the camera frame.

Simple.

Its funny. Sometimes I’ll describe something as being “a Rube Goldberg” and people just look at me. They have no idea what I’m talking about.

I guess its a function of age.

The cover-up begins.

A guy I know who works at NASA in the muzzlem outreach department. They are now looking for muzzlems on Mars. They had a little basket on the side of the rover with donuts in it to lure the muzzlems. Either the rover hit a bump and one fell out or a real muzzlem grabbed one but dropped it. It fell on unclean ground, so he left it behind.

Right, the shadow of an infidel rover crossed his
doughnut so he had to let it go. HARAM!

He’s still around spouting wacco lefty rubbish with some interesting tidbits thrown in for bait.

I watched part of one of his latest efforts because it sounded interesting, but before he had gone on and gone on in his long winded fashion, he began to spew.

After that major spew, he called on sereral of his colaborators (whom he identified as disagreeing with him), but they had left the room ... hahahaha.

I know. He used to be on Coast to Coast regularly, not so much now.

I heard that he addressed a Libertarian gathering.

And he did win an Ig in 1996. He never mentions this.

Never once watch that show. I have no idea of what it is about or what premise it is based on.

I just know that this govt is made up of a whole lot of liars and crooks.
