Say hello to “Homestake”…

Well, it seems Oppy is just as fascinated by “Homestake” as many of her fans and followers are! Today a whole bunch of colour filter images came back, allowing us to make the first half-decent colour views of this enigmatic feature. But before I show you mine, here’s a nice view of Oppy’s robot arm positioned above Homestake…

Sorry? You want a 3D view of that? Oh, alright…

Sooo… what about Homestake itself…? Well, why not ay hello for yourself? As we still haven’t much of a clue yet as to what Homestake is, I’m just going to post all the ‘portraits’ I made of Homestake today, and let the pictures speak for themselves…

But you don’t want to see those, you want to see Homestake in proper colour, I know… ok, ok, here you go…

Wow… look at that… look how it stands out against the surface! It’s so bright! :-) Some more views…

Have to be honest, I’m quite blown away by this feature, and I can’t wait to see it in more detail. Check back soon for more pictures! :-)

    Wow, Stu. Great pictures. I can’t wait to read some ideas as to what it might be. It looks like a vein in the rock but seems to be oriented in the wrong direction.

    I wonder if the brush tool would be effective on it. I want to see how deep it goes.

    Thank you. What an interesting feature.

  4. “That looks like the remains of a wall built by early Martians…”

    …is what I would say if I had no idea what these really were. Really, really interesting… so these things are proof of a wet ancient Mars?

      Yep, features like this are typically left behind when minerals fill cracks left between other material in a wet and quite stable environment. That’s why Homestake is so fascinating!
