NASA says the bright object on Mars is not Martian material . It is likely a piece of plastic from curiosity rover


NASA says a small bright object detected on Mars is likely a piece of plastic from the Curiosity rover.



In a statement Tuesday, the space agency says the plastic bit that fell off the rover is "benign." While plans are continuing to positively identify it, NASA says it is not "Martian material."

Of course it's a piece of plastic,that stuff lasts for ever and though anything.
Betcha that tech will get his butt canned for that faux pas.

There have already been at least 2 threads made on this, here is the original which for some reason is in the aliens forum, I guess some people think it's an alien:

And here's another duplicate which I think was correctly posted in the space exploration forum which was closed:

This probably should have been posted in space exploration too, but I suspect it will be closed too so it probably doesn't matter for this thread, just note for next time you have stuff about Mars to discuss.
