Curiosity Spots Mystery Mars 'Flower


While using its robotic arm-mounted Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) camera to take some close up photos of the surface of a rocky outcrop at a location dubbed "Yellowknife Bay" on Dec. 19 (sol 132 of the mission), a bright object could be seen in one of the raw images uploaded to the mission's website. Its discovery has caused quite a stir on AboveTopSecret.com where it was first reported.

As usual, I see a rock.

Wish they would find something that would go down in the history books.

Yep, something earth shaking would be excellent.

As usual you are claiming conspiracy when there isn't one. If NASA is covering things up as you are constantly hinting why ate they releasing the images in the first place? That would not be a logical way to behave.

seeing how this thread is about curiosity - did anyone else on here submit their name to NASA to include it on a microchip aboard the rover? i see from the NASA site 1,246,445 people submitted their name. i think its rather cool my name is on Mars.

  Yep, my name is on Mars, It's also orbiting the Moon on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. If the Japanese ever sort out Akutsuki it will be orbiting Venus as well.

Edited to add:
I've just remembered, my name is also on a DVD carried to Mars by the Mars Phoenix Lander.

Thank you  DVD name
It doesn't have a name, nor is it commercially available. It simply contains a list of a quater of a million names submitted to The Planetary Society and then placed on the Mars Phoenix Lander.

My name is on every one they have offered to put names on.   I wonder if the rock could be a salt crystal?   I wish they would make one to pick up stuff to return so we could get a good look at it. I want to go rock hunting on mars!!
