The fact that they appear not to be covered in dust suggests that they "arrived" recently at those places, so I think it's possible they came from the
rover or the sky crane.
They are too far from the rover, and however they are on various images.
How many tons of debris were exploded on a so huge area from the sky crane, that permit to Curiosity to find them everywhere??
I can't say that being debris from the sky crane is 100 percent wrong or right.
I will say that if it is from it, Curiosity is so lucky it should be in Las Vegas clearing out the house!
It could be salt, maybe broken off from the larger rock? But then I would think that the spot on the rock would be brighter. And we'd see more of this
in this one area.......
The pristine look of this object does suggest recent arrival, since there is no dust on it.
Again, I'm not suggesting that it's alien in origin. But it looks so damn out of place.
I think we should all contact JPL and ask them. Maybe it will get more attention by people. I just want to hear what they have to say about it.
That or I've been reading one too many of Arken's threads! hehehehehe
