I'd like an analysis of that whitish "fissure" running down the right side of this pic, please (well, unless others like it had been previously studied so that it is a known type of Martian feature).

Just curious.

Why would there be a longish feature like this?
What is it made of?
Because of their limitations the drills aboard Curiosity could not make a definitive analysis, but are these somehow just a surface feature or do they extend into the rocks?
Is there some Earthly rock formation that resembles this?

Those are just the beginning of my questions....

Looks like a mineral vein to me, its a crack filled with mineralization. Usually on Earth, that's fluid (water) mediated mineralization, but it doesn't have to be.

Yeah, but suppose that analysis of the whitish material finds that it is NOT made of a mineral that was easily dissolved in water?

See? Even more questions to be asked.

I'll admit to not watching news from Curiosity closely enough to know if anything similar had been found elsewhere and that such analyses has been made already.

Hey, at least it's in London. Reminds me of the guy in Deus Ex trying to get his GF to live with him in one of those tube motels.

The industrial wire spool table is the icing. A friend of mine had one and used to throw knives in it.

Reading over at NASA's site, these light colored veins are likely silicates that intruded in the mudstone when the lake dried up.

Absolutely positive. Look what happened when a Redneck and an ultra-religious conservative mated. We got Sheldon Cooper.
