Curiosity Rover Found A Strange Object On The Surface Of Mars

A weird object got the attention of Mars Curiosity mission scientists last week.

The Mars Curiosity rover captured images of this strange object on the planet’s surface. The images captured on Monday (August 13, 2018) by the Curiosity rover’s camera.

With no idea what it was or where it came from, the rover’s
handlers began to worry that it might actually be a chunk of the rover itself suggesting some unseen damage or other issue with the robot.

In a new update from NASA the object has now been identified as a natural chunk of rock rather than a piece of any manmade craft or vehicle. The team analyzed the bizarre object with a tool called the ChemCam RMI.

The instrument uses a laser to sniff out the makeup of anything it’s pointed at and the results for this particular piece of debris revealed that it’s actually just a very thin piece of rock.

But how this particularly thin sliver of 'rock' got to where it is?
Why it seems to be a different color than the surrounding sand and debris?
It remains unexplained!

What's more than certain this object doesn't look like a piece of rock.

The second data release of our #Gaia mission, made in April, has marked a turning point in the study of our Galactic home, the Milky Way. With an unprecedented catalogue of 3D positions and 2D motions of more than a billion stars, plus additional information on smaller subsets of stars and other celestial sources, Gaia has provided astronomers with an astonishing resource to explore the distribution and composition of the Galaxy and to investigate its past and future evolution.

Fog and Milky Way

You should see a mountain range in this image, but heavy rains the day before created conditions for fog and sure enough the mountains were hidden in it. However the Milky Way still blazed in the sky above. This is from a nightscape photography trip to west Texas.
