Strange object photographed on Mars surface by Curiosity rover camera
August 19, 2018




CLICK TO ENLARGE: The small object on Mars has been identified.
(NATIONAL) – The image of a small object on the surface of mars looked pretty strange to scientists. Against the background of regular, by now monotonous looking Martian rocks and dirt, this thing stuck out like a sore thumb.

It looked for all the world like maybe a chip of paint or possibly a piece of light-colored masking tape. The image was taken on Monday August 13 by the Curiosity rover’s camera as part of the ongoing Mars Curiosity Mission .

Scientists initially thought the mystery object was a piece of spacecraft debris or possibly even part of Curiosity itself. But now they’ve figured it out and it’s not a mystery anymore.

The object was analyzed by Curiosity’s ChemCam. That’s an instrument that uses a laser and spectrometer to figure stuff like this out. And according to ChemCam, the object is nothing more exciting than a very thin flake of rock, albeit of a different color from the ones surrounding it.

Curiosity has been exploring the surface of Mars since it landed there in August 2012.
