The possibility of Crinoid fossils found on Mars has been discussed here before...

↑ This - first thing I thought, from seeing a thread awhile back with several Mars (and Earth) pics of crinoid fossils.

It's a spring.
The rover is falling apart.

Is it where the rover has 'pew pew pewwed' the sand with its lasor ?

Yeah. It's a line of laser beam holes.

That's unfair, you know, because Martians only have disintegrator rays. I saw it on Bugs Bunny, so you know it's true!

Screw the "screw." Anybody else see that perfectly preserved bird's wing in the main part of the image? I'll bet NASA just put that image of a screw in there (the only thing they had handy laying around the shop) and hoped we would miss the bird wing that slipped through. It was too big to blur, you know. I think that wing is of the Martian condor species, winter plumage. (...Wonder where the rest of it is?)

I think you may have it. Looking at some of the holes left by Chemcam.

Discover News - Curiosity Plays in Sandy Martian Dunes: Photos (advance slider a few images):




These 10 pockmarks in the ridge of dune sand is evidence of Curiosity using its Chemcam instrument laser. Chemcam uses a focused beam to burn away to uppermost later of material (be it rock or, in this case, a ridge of sand), turning it into a flash of plasma. As the laser pulses, the flashes are measured and their spectroscopic signature recorded to understand what the material is made of. This image was taken by the mission's Mastcam in the run up to Curiosity's dune investigation on Sol 1177 (Nov. 28).


It's a straight row of 10 holes, in sand at that. Another example, Gizmodo - 8 Places Where the Curiosity Rover Left Drill Holes on Mars:




Ten laser-zap points from the ChemCam at John Klein on Sol 183. Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/LANL/IRAP/CNES/LPGNantes/IAS/C

The ChemCam also performed a series of sampling zaps into the drill tailings on Sol 183. These zaps provided spectra which researchers interpreted to determine composition of the rock powder extracted from the drillhole.


Again, straight line of 10 holes.

Certainly looks the part, well sorted, it also explains the uneven shadowing around the area in the B/W picture, and the slight, (apparent) differences in the gapping over the ridge of the dune

I guess there is also a report in NASA somewhere where and when the Laser is used.
