In my opinion it is just a rock shaped somewhat like a spoon, with sand added. Not an unlikely occuranc.

OP's spoon does seem off-center where the spoon head meets the handle. No self-respecting Martian Silver Smith would ever allow for such an inconsistency!

OK its not a real spoon or a fossil spoon, but the question remains: how do perfectly spoon-shaped rocks form on Mars?

Maybe because, it's not really a picture of Mars.

Needless to say I didn't have a clue how to answer your question but as it's been puzzling me too I did a bit of Google researching.

This is the best I've got but somebody who actually has some idea of what to look for might be able to help us out.

The White Desert in Egypt (Farafra) features some weird and wonderful rock formations and here's the explanation for them:


The unusual chalk-rock formations in the White Desert are similar to those found on some other planets. These formations result from the disintegration of a plateau, which causes softer sections to be blown away during sandstorms while the harder rock parts remain standing. They are given different names that somewhat describe their shapes such as inselbergs, ice cream cones, crickets and mushrooms.

Now, Earth's chalk rock and Mar's whatever-it-is rock probably (!) have a different composition but I suppose the principle is the same? *

*Don't all laugh - I'm doing my best.

Hey Syx.

I'm on a Tablet so I could enlarge the picture a bit. There are quite a few interesting little bits and pieces lurking about, I had fun guessing what they all might be.

Sadly I've no idea how to highlight my 'finds' for discussion but if anyone else wants to have a go and report back some of us (me) would be very interested.

Haul up until now:

Syxpak - ribbon (top left)
berenike - fish skeleton with face in it (top middle)

Y'all have fun

Here's some circled items Beren. Save, then blow it up to see em better. I'll try to get some crops that should make stuff larger to see better. Oh. I don't see your Fish?

Thank you!

My fish is just below the round rock you circled, top centre. It's almost spoon shaped.

I'm guessing ancient Martians loved soup.


Or heroin


Heroin soup? Perhaps that's how they all died out...nobody was minding the massive nuclear reactors, which went critical and blew the atmosphere and oceans away, while they were all baked...then got even more baked...but didn't notice because they were...err...baked.

did you know 'nasa' is a real existing word [Strong's]
meaning "to beguile" ?


Quit spreading nonsensical garbage.

According to Strong's Hebrew:

"Nasa" (pronounced "Nasah", like we say 'NASA') is 5375 and means "to bear, to lift, to carry."

"Nasha", which is a far further linguistic stretch, is 5377 and means "to beguile" or "to deceive."

I was wondering if they could be impactite, like some of the long, stringy and dumbell shaped tektites on Earth. Melted silica that is stretched into long shapes from spinning, some with dollops on the ends. Caused by large meteor impacts.



How they form...

I can only draw one conclusion from this: The dish did not survive the journey. After they parted ways with the cow they ran to the red planet. Was it the cold nights that the dish could not handle. Clearly the spoon is built better for that hostile environment. Maybe ... just maybe they shouldnt have run away in the first place.

Food for thought
