Looks to me that them rocks around the black one looked to be rounded by water.
I just find that what they do show you is 5% of what they actually do know.
1. ChemCam fires a laser (solid green line) in a series of pulses at a target (rock or soil). ChemCam’s laser is powerful, but it is still invisible to the human eye. The green color of the laser depicted above is for illustrative purposes.
2. Electrons within the target become excited and emit light. The resulting flash of light is clearly visible to the human eye.
3. ChemCam receives this light (dashed green line) with a built-in telescope and it is sent down an optical fiber to the body of the rover. A spectrometer “reads” the light and identifies the types of atoms within the target. ChemCam will be able to distinguish different elements because each chemical element has its own unique “fingerprint.” Sparks from different elements and rock types also have their own color (Figure 2). Knowing which atoms are present in the target rock tells ChemCam scientists its composition.
Just another rock I`m sure,but it sure caught NASA`s attention they got a nice close up picture of it.
The picture was taken with the mars rover chemcam.
Can u really. believe what they r saying
it is with everything we was told as kids the truth is comming out now about it
and i have a feeling they will end up doing the same with the things they say now but if not its a cool pic
Excuse me....it has machined edges......
