If there is and was no life on Mars this picture was taken most probably in the Nevada desert.

Fractured rocks are all over Mars. It comes from impact hammering the bedrock and less erosion to erase the evidence.

Look , Paving stones!


I don't know about impacts, but much of Mar's bedrock is a shale type and easily splits, (is fissile) along its layers, on Mars the shale, or rocks in general are likely extremely dry and brittle too. There is erosion too, and its all relative, while the erosion may be less fierce than on Earth, so is the resistance of the rock.

These are by far the coolest rocks ever on this planet.
I'd like to see something top this


thanks

Nice picture , an anomaly hunter could spend hours in there .

I find these two interesting as well , particularly No 1 , nice shape



Gortex, I zeroed in on those two others more-so than the cube. They are very interesting indeed.
Like broken tiles or something... Not that I think that's what they actually are, but they are VERY cool flat/curved pieces! The cube isn't perfect, just a cool couple of right angles and a lumpy side, a flat side, shadow etc. but it is definitely a rock with right angles!

Some have raised interesting concerns about this "cubed" rock. I would first like to state that it would depend on the type of rock, as some rocks will naturally fracture leaving a smooth side. It is not impossible. Someone mentioned that this is not a perfect cube, and that we cannot see the underside, and this is very important. If it obviously is not a perfect cube then natural processes seem even more likely as an explanation. Another thing to remember is that many rocks on Mars appear to have been weathered by a flowing liquid, which could potentially leave a flat side if only a portion of the stone was exposed to the moving liquid. I do not know for a fact what the object actually is, as I have not been to Mars for some time, lol, but I would put my money on a naturally formed rock.

That pile of rock looks like it has been "bounced" a bunch of times.

Nothing in nature is 90 degree angle to a side. Or straight edges.

Doesn't look like a perfect cube now, does it?

Speaking of perfect natural cubes:

That's pyrite, by the way.

I'm a bit of a stickler MeeSees, how's your short game?

Translation: You got a picture of one by itself? (A cube-ish shaped rock)


Smurfy (7 posts up): Nice cube in that pic too, mid right side.

Poster directly above mine: that's awesome!

Looks artificial to me. Could be natural of course. And of course NASA will only take that one picture and look at it no more. LOL but, Even if Geological, it's anomalous.

Of course, being artificial isn't out of the question. We know there was lot's of water on Mars at some point...oceans of it by some calculations. Therefore a real possibility of life...and knowing what we know about evolution, a real big chance that that life evolved....How far it evolved we don't yet know...but again...there is a real possibility that life on Mars evolved into intelligence and that life probably made artificial things and well...

Here it is.

All of the "rocks" around that cube seem to be out of place or odd. Some have curves. They sort of look like components to a long destroyed mechanical object of some sort. Yeah just rocks I guess

It's not anomalous to geologists.

If its natural, then why is it the only one visible? Shouldn't we see the rest of the rock from which it broke off?

It looks so out of place compared with its surroundings.

Its genuine and I'm offering it for the quite reasonable sum of just 500k. Buyer collects.

Just just a rock this time. Looks like a perfect cube to me.

Your concept of 'perfect' is obviously flawed.
It doesn't even have the lustre of Galena....perhaps it's Basalt?

Almost looks like part of a brick.
