Finally a real Martian rock anomaly
After a decade of exploring the Martian surface, the scientists overseeing veteran rover Opportunity thought they’d seen it all. That was
until a rock mysteriously “appeared” a few feet in front of the six-wheeled rover a few days ago. News of the errant rock was announced by NASA
Mars Exploration Rover lead scientist Steve Squyres of Cornell University at a special NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory “10 years of roving Mars”
event at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Pasadena, Calif., on Thursday night. The science star-studded public event was held in
celebration of the decade since twin rovers Spirit and Opportunity landed on the red planet in January 2004.
Scientists are still speculating, it seems.
Reminds me of the moving rocks of Death Valley.
