The NASA curiosity rover is a rather curious discovery on Mars. It is vivid, shiny, mysterious and may (or not) be a meteorite.
On Wednesday, Dr. Susanne P. Schwenzer wrote on a curiosity group blog, referring to an unknown object that was dubbed Little Colonsay.
"One of the examples we are trying to better see is Little Colonsay. The planning team thinks it might be a meteorite because it is so sleek. But looks can be misleading and proof will only come from chemistry," she wrote.
The object was observed on Rover's ChemCam on Monday.
The NASA Curiosity Rover is the most advanced rotor ever built, equipped with 17 cameras and a robot arm, with specialized tools and instruments. Its task is to determine if Mars is or is living with an antimicrobial life.
