Opportunity is investigating an outcrop called Kirkwood in the Cape York segment of the western rim of Endeavour Crater. The spheres measure as much as one-eighth of an inch (3 millimeters) in diameter. The analysis is still preliminary, but it indicates that these spheres do not have the high iron content of Martian blueberries.
"This is one of the most extraordinary pictures from the whole mission," said Opportunity's principal investigator, Steve Squyres of Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y. "Kirkwood is chock full of a dense accumulation of these small spherical objects. Of course, we immediately thought of the blueberries, but this is something different. We never have seen such a dense accumulation of spherules in a rock outcrop on Mars."

OH GOD NO, THEY FOUND THE EGGS....NOT THE EGGS NO! SOME OF THEM HAVE HATCHED!
It is only a matter of time now.
30 days to burrow and grow
30 days to absorb enough radiation from the Sun for flight
30 days to reach Earth
10 days to devour us all
The Mayans knew containing them on Mars would not be enough.... but how did they know the date?
