Hello

I was just browsing the new mars sol 309 pics and came across this shiny object and i'm not sure what it is.

It's probably another rock lol but I don't see any other objects like it in all the surrounding pics.

It looks like a CD it even has a hole in the center

here it is at 150%


this is 400%


1000%

That does look out of place. Could be a sand dollar! Good find!

Yeah, I've been to beaches all over the world and it was the first thing I thought of when I saw your posted pictures. (Man! That's a long sentence:lol


It could be>

It looks like a rock of some kind. Sand blown but maybe washed by water many many many years ago.

Good Catch. But not a CD. Natural most likely.

Maybe it's an updated version of what we used to call a "mix tape" that we put on to CD via Curiosity??? Who doesn't like music? Peace offering?
It's as good a guess as anything if "rock" has already been taken.

I agree. Rough edges makes it look like sand dollar. But with the wind there it seems unlikely it would be so well preserved. It could be a precious metal that has a small rock blown onto it. I want to know when NASA will tell us what they think. I do hope its a sand dollar - just recently uncovered by winds. What would we then do with that sort of knowledge. I always check these posts but this one is especially intriguing.

Yes, I agree.


The tests of dead individuals are often found on beaches, the textured skin missing and the skeleton bleached white by sunlight.


sand dollars turn bleach white. That thin looks bleach white.en.wikipedia.org...

Bet we won't hear nothing anytime soon.

At least we get to see the pictures and decide for ourselves. The surface of mars looks just like earth, they've found evidence of water via stream beds, so his just adds to the puzzle if its a sand dollar. Life existed on mars at one time - I was convinced years ago when initial photos of the surface were shared with the public. I think its just a question of whether intelligent life ever lived there.

Interesting picture. I've looked at the entire set, and there are only 2 with this in them. And it sticks out like a sore toe.

As the image is only 4-5 days old it's intriguing.

I don't see why it's even possible that it's some sort of skeleton of an earth based life form. Even if the planet once had flowing water, which it has not had in a long time (millions of years), for something to remain on the surface and in the same shape as it was when it was alive, is beyond plausible.

With no other similar things in any of the images, it's a good one, for sure! Certainly worth looking for answers to. But I don't think we'll find it's a skeleton or compact disc.

Unless someone on earth flung a cd into space a while go, and .. naww.

Nasa are just as likely to have no answers either, it's not as if they have a book of martian answers that they will only reveal to us when we discover the secrets in the images.. they're just putting things up there.. that allow us all to look around.

Wow, really cool find!

That's definitely something strange, usually I can't see what people are talking about, but this is something for sure.

I'm going with space junk, we send rovers down in all kinds of ways, maybe something fell off.

I can definitely see the sand dollar theory, and if so what more proof do you need that life exited on mars?

It looks to me like a small flame is coming out of the center hole. Strange rock, indeed.
And what's the "pink" thing on the back part of the "rock"? I think I'm looking at this to long.

I think to, these objects are very small not CD size. there seems to be a few of these bright white things in this picture and I notice they show a rock on the side of the web page and give a measurement, way smaller then I thought.

Hmmm, now that's interesting. IMHO it could be maybe debris from other landing craft on mars, lifted thru the winds and throw outward, just really lucky to have an image of one at that moment.
Would be very cool though if it was something like a piece of ancient tech long lost on mars from previous civilizations, but hey, at least we can dream.

We've sent a lot of things to Mars.

It's likely ours, junk from space sent to obtain data about Mars. Rovers, satellites, etc.

Very interesting find, regardless.

Here's the wider view of the area, to help you determine the size of that object. Curiosity is at "Shaler" outcrop, and you can just about see the "CD" at the bottom of the mosaic, and slightly to the left.

I'd say it's only a few millimeters, at most a couple of centimeters, in diameter. The whiteness and shiny-ness suggest that it's some kind of calcium deposit. Such white and rounded specs of material have been seen on Cury images before.

Huh, this one has me stumped.

I had no idea there were sand dollars in New Mexico!

One of the most interesting and incredible anomaly by Curiosity:
Good Catch!

What about the rock to the right and at the top of the sand dollar on the top picture.
Looks either carved or shaped to me. Very symmetrical for a random rock.

That's just not right....here's my constructive view.

1.nerd dropped cd in the desert
2.Shiny puddle of mercury
3.Hub-cap disengaged for bacterial studies
4.Spy camera for sneaky mexicans
5.They live underground there so it is a ....solar battery
