    Perhaps the pyramid is where the Martians place their dull razor blades to be sharpened....

    Kent Dunn said Earth is Terra and Mars is Gaia. In the Stargate SG-1 series we are referred to as Terrans.

    NASA's Curiosity Rover Detects Spike in Methane on Mars

    NASA’s Curiosity rover discovered “startlingly high amounts of methane in the Martian air” on Wednesday in what could potentially be a sign of life on the Red Planet, the New York Times reported on Saturday.

    The detection of methane would be a major discovery because, as the Times noted, it breaks down within a few centuries due to sunlight and chemical reactions—meaning it would have had to have been generated quite recently in historical terms. High levels of methane could potentially be generated underground by microbes called methanogens that survive without oxygen and produce the gas as a metabolic byproduct. Project scientist Ashwin R. Vasavada told the Curiosity science team in an email that “Given this surprising result, we’ve reorganized the weekend to run a follow-up experiment,” the Times wrote.

    The readings on Wednesday are over three times that of a sudden spike in 2013 that lasted several months; after first finding nothing after its touchdown in 2012, Curiosity detected approximately seven parts per billion of methane later in the year. The newest measurements are 21 parts per billion.

    Well, it isn't a bird.

    Mars atmosphere has little oxygen and is less than 1% as thick.

    It is so thin that they have to use rockets to land heavy vehicles.

    There have been some airplane concepts for Mars, but they travel at Mach+ (for Mars) or 537+ mph with about 4 kg mass and a 1.73 meter wingspan.

    Hard to land at Mach speed (see pictures of the Germanwings crash that was much slower).

    Is this a single picture?

    Is there a link to the NASA picture set?
