  Close-up View of Broken Mars Rock 'Tintina'
     
Close-up View of Broken Mars Rock 'Tintina'
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS

Uploader comment: This close-up view of "Tintina" was taken by the rover's Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) on Sol 160 (January 17, 2013) and shows interesting linear textures in the bright white material on the rock. Curiosity studied Tintina with the Mast Camera (Mastcam) science filters on sols 160 and 162 (January 17 and 19, 2013).

Have a look at the little plain rocks around it. They're all smooth, like we normally find in a creek bed. THAT'S the evidence of a watery past right there.
