Mind you its probably debris from one of the many satellites sent there but which crashed on deployment - certainly of an interesting and resilient metal.

No doubt NASA will be curious enough to test its composition with their onboard spectroscope ... I would be curious to find out about that metal - wouldn't you ?

Interesting - I think the tube at the top of the object pretty much rules out a rock formation... I wonder which probe it belongs to?

What are the odds for Curiosity to stumble upon this debris, or did NASA seek it out, knowing the position of the object.

How do we know it is NASA's or are they the only ones that send probes to Mars. What are the odds of just stumbling across something like this? I mean thats like randomley finding an apple or a hulk hogan action figure in the middle of the Sahara desert.

Its called aluminum...
I have a secret "roll" of it in my kitchen cabinet only .002mm thick....
I can wrap and bend the magical metal until it becomes a hat...
Then I put on the hat and hear that ladies voice tell me to do things...

It truly is an "interesting and resilient metal"....

I am starring you just for the last part of your comment. It brought tears to my eyes and made my asthma flare up. Thanks for the laugh!

Nice! About time we get another mars rock thread. Except this isn't even a rock!

That's a first as far as I've seen.

God.. that voice is awful.

It actually looks a lot like the back box and part of the exhaust from a car..
Maybe a bit more evidence for you guys that think the rover could be on earth in a desert somewhere.

Just wanted to add.. The date stamp on the video says 2013. . Shouldn't we have more information on this by now?

Most likely a cloaking device from
the United States Space Commands TR platform.
From the inlet I'd say it's the Navy's.
They come loose all the time. I think they
are going to have China make them for now on.
(don't you love that level of speculation)

What does that have to do with STAR WARS? I was expecting a bit of junk that looks like a light saber hilt or a blaster or something . . . . that is just some random piece of debris. I would be very curious as to what exactly it is and which Rover/landing apparatus it came from. It looks important, very much like a muffler or catalytic converter - of course it wouldn't be but, still, I can't imagine something like that not being an integral part of a Rover or other equipment but if all of our gear is functioning properly on Mars, where did it come from . . . . . . I am not implying ANYTHING unusual FYI.

I have a feeling you would like to skate the big crater on Mars doing some KickFlips and 50 Laser Flips on your way down.

If they would have looked at the actual high-resolution picture that shows this object rather than looking at a mosaic made up of dozens of pictures stitched together, then they might have been able to see that the object looks more rock-like than metal-like.

Here is the raw image of that object (the object is at the bottom of the image):

Well, I suppose if this an area south of the landing site, then it's kind of not too hard to make the conclusion that this is some debris from the the last stage/s of the landing sequence.
