here is the source
photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov...
277mb so i aint uploading it lol

Here is the fossil on mars.


Look's to be identical to what we call Indian beads here in Kentucky.

what are they?
they are Crinoid!!!!!
en.wikipedia.org...

In 2006, geologists isolated complex organic molecules from 350-million-year-old fossils of crinoids—the oldest such molecules yet found. Christina O'Malley, a doctoral student in earth sciences at The Ohio State University, found orange and yellow organic molecules inside the fossilized remains of several species of crinoids dating back to the Mississippian period.[6]

www.uky.edu...

1. Crinoid columnals are generally small circular fossils, a centimeter or less in width. They may have a hole toward the axis (bead shape) but are common without holes as well. Crinoid columnals are common in limestones and shales throughout Kentucky, especially central Kentucky and around Cumberland Lake. 2. Cross sectional views or views looking down on the tops or cups of horn corals can have a circular appearance. Most corals will have grooves or lines radiating out from the axis. They are generally less than 3 or 4 centimeters in width. 3. Cross sectional views through some types of bryozoans are circular. Such sections are generally less than a centimeter in width and are common in Ordovician limestones of central Kentucky. 4. Atrypa, Orbiculoidia, and some productid brachiopods have circular shapes at certain orientations and do not have grooved ornamentation like many other shelled fossils. Look to see if you can see a tiny protrusion on one side of the shell that might be a hinge to the shell valves.


Nasa slipped up..cause this is to me 100% sure it's a crinoids.
Look at the picture's and you decide...
As you can tell it's out of place.

If it's not a Crinoid fossil what is it then?
I found 1 under a rock that maybe close to same thing if it help's.
..it's hard to tell

Sorry but I've seen crystalline formations that look very similar to that. You've got a sharp eye though. It would be awesome if were you right - I'm just playing devil's advocate here.

here is a zoom back from where the object is.

You can see not a thing around it look's close to it.


I will have to stick to my story

It look's dead on what i fond all the time here in kentucky.
except it does look to be larger than ive seen.
But they might be bigger on mar's idk

Interesting find. Just one question, as I am currently downloading the full resolution image. Is there any sort of scale or frame of reference to identify the dimensions or size of the object?

I don't see any marking on the side i will check the others to see.

The whole area is layered just like the piece in question. I think that piece you refer to broke off at the middle top of the photo. Look top middle and see where your chunk fell off of.

That entire area of that composite panorama is composed of layered rocks.
It looks like that could be a piece of one of those rocks that has been subjected to weathering.
Like this one:



(Is there an echo? Or is it just me?)

I can't see where it could break off of.
Look at the circle's.
"Keyword"it's circle's

Have you seen a Indian bead fossil that's fell over?
It look's like layer's...im trying to find a pic of exactly what i speak of.
i have some here at house but no camera working lol..
here is one that started breaking apart then fossilized..you can see it appears to layer.




It's hard to Show you what i am saying.

Ok the Them from the crinoid fall''s apart and slides in section's...and made the fossil on mar's..
If that make's sense to what i am saying.

I have some here that look identical to that only smaller from kentucky.
almost 3 inch's long..and slide apart as fossilized.
it look's like a step or stair case.

Show me a round multi circled chunk that it fell of.
i can't find any.

look at close up of original pic i posted.
it has 5 circle's.

Now look anywhere around that picture in that area.
So me one spot that match's identically to the rock parttern of the fossil.

Not any layered rock..
That rock is unique as in it would had to got weathered in 5 circle's..as all other's didn't in same area.

I was saying the same thing as you i thought it myself..
It is layered rock's around there...
But no formation in the area is even close to where it should be if it was a normal rock.

this is from the other nasa picture of the spot.



it still doesn't match nothing around it.

I cannot seem to embed images. I cannot sign up for a media account either, it says "no more registrations" or something so I uploaded to a friends server and linked.

Here is what I think: see images in order

Just an observation. The actual crinoids are in a cylindrical "stack". The one you allege to be on Mars looks like a toppled stack of plates. I don't believe that they are the same. I believe that they are eroded layers of rock.

Just my 2-cents

You do realize how incredibly massive they would have to be in order for you to see them, don't you? On Earth, these are 1cm.

I'm no archeologist, but when are ancient fossils known for gently planting themselves on the surface of the planet? Aren't they typically discovered embedded within sedimentary rock?

Indian beads are found in my driveway there on top of the ground.
mostly around creeks ect..

yes it could have came from there...
But still even if it did.

it's still possible it's a crinoid..that broke off that spot and fell to the point you see there now.

all depends how it was formed i suppose.

if ya see my point.

The color does NOT seem to match that of the surrounding
rock, very close but different. As for the rocks I have seen
resembling that they are from accretions found in
caves. That could open up a whole new can of worms so
to speak.

Are or were there harsh winds on Mars? If so, I could see
a cylindrical piece of sedminetary rock rolling into that shape
and ending up where we see it now.

Despite it's outward similarities to a crinoid what do you think
the odds are of an identical species evolving on another planet?
Some long, looong odds there my friend.


hey, I just caught a dimple in the dust at the far right hand of
the picture. It's cut off there but looks interesting.

Well i look at it like this.

We are all made up of the same material.
Diffrent dna.

Where did all of the mineral's that make us come from?
Space..asteroids ect..comet's idk.

So how would it be so hard to see the exact same kind of fossil on another planet?
No different type of mineral is going to be there.
Maybe a new species or variant of our own more or less..
But it wont be totally new.
if ya see my point.

Ps.
I still think there a fossil ...

I'm leaning more towards your original hypothesis. Do you see the dimple at the bottom right corner of the picture? It resembles an antlion trap if youve ever seen one of those.
