For a very long time now some people have maintained that NASA is changing the colours in the images it releases. Some even maintain that they are airbrushing some and even not releasing some at all.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Let’s take a look at a few images to see if we can spot any hanky-panky with the colours.

Here is an image of the lander that delivered Spirit to the Martian surface taken by Spirit.

Could there be something to the rumour that NASA is not being exactly honest about some things? Surely a part of the U.S. government wouldn’t lie to the world, now would it?
Images from NASA unless noted other wise.
