Interesting!

I'm gonna throw my theory into the ring. I'm thinking that these are perhaps small metallic (think grain of rice size) particles, and then ONTO those is a layer of CO2 ice which has condensed onto it. Perhaps even unearthing some of these small fragments trapped under the soil is allowing fresh clean CO2 ice to remain cleansed and fresh?

mmm Mars fresh

Perhaps they are crystalline in nature, like common quarts here on Earth? Or maybe it is ice after all?

The thing with NASA, that many have a hard time accepting, is that they will not say anything until they are almost 100% sure. The reason being as I mentioned above. Certain formations can only exist when certain other conditions allow. As they are doing science, they want to make sure they don't accidentally jump the gun by stating something that is false, that ends up having further ramifications or prejudices their ongoing research.

I'm betting that it has nothing to do with Ice or life on Mars.

One sure reason for them to be tight lipped, is if it turns out to be some new or rare and valuble metal.

If there be gold or something just as valuable on mars, the whole planet would be in a rush to get there..lol

The US of course would want to get there first to stake a claim...hehehehe

Not allowed by treaty.

A round trip to the Moon costs about $200,000 per pound. Mars, I wouldn't even want to guess but doubling it might be close, call it $400,000. The price of gold is now about $27,300.

*Caution*
Yahoo news.
Aptly named so.

There's much more than a shiny object or two on Mars.
Stick around. It will eventually come out.

We are being set up for some sort of 'alien revelation'.

The mars curiosity program is just as bogus as the apollo program,
but so very many are so very slow on the uptake, it seems.

The US abides by treaties? jk

Ahh, but we don't know that it is gold..

Could be something even more exotic and worth the trip.

Either way, I think a mineral element is more likely than a bug cacoon or Ice.

Possibly but...

Mars has one of the largest Volcanoes in our solar system.


What if...

During its massive eruption it blew small diamonds all over the surface when it erupted a long time on a planet far far away?

I've got my money on glass shards from the millions of meteor impacts Mars has been through.

The point I'm getting at is that we might find out that these 'bright particles' are terrestrial and from any number of pieces of equipment and debris being eroded and whipped around Mars by the weather.



i dont know..

seems to me mars is a pretty big planet to suggest we have littered the entire surface with space trash..




Mars has 53% of the diameter of Earth. It has about 38% of the surface area of Earth Read more: www.universetoday.com...

Its all a big show, They know what is on the planet mars, and the moon.

If they wanted you to think otherwise they would try and show you what its like up there and act as if they dont know... like theyre doing now

How comes they arent talking about this??





Does it not seem odd that they have focused on a tiny shiny thing in the soil, rather than this larger thing sitting in the hole?

Why is there such a shock about finding "shiny" objects in the soil? Were they not expecting this?


I was going to write the same thing, but I'll expand. Did they expect to find nothing?

Just so you guys know, had I sent a rover to Mars, and I found ANYTHING, the whole world would know. I'd brag. Yeah, and I probably wouldn't chalk up my find to a piece breaking of my equipment, at least not at first...

The first shiny object "Ice" they found looked more like an insect pupal case




First thing I thought was shed skin like a snake would do, but I agree it could well be an insect pupal or similar

the video above is a HD colour photo of the first shiny object
