The Martian Sky is really blue
Could NASA be tampering with data?
At the press conference last saturday, the JPL-scientists showed the latest picture of the Martian landscape. It showed a salmon-coloured desert with a blue sky. It seems that they did it on purpose, since previous pictures were all extremely red.
Investigation shows that there are several indications that the NASA is tampering with the colors, and changes them from an Earth-like environment into a red inhospitable environment. But it seems that the young scientists at Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) are not convenient with this.
It shows the same picture with the same hill on the upper-right, slightly zoomed-out. The administration of the NASA seems to have tampered with the picture.
It's been a point of contention that for decades that NASA had altered the Martian landscape to make it look more inhospitable and hostile than it actually is. In the image comparison above, the frost was un-naturally toned red.
