The Curiosity rover of NASA has made a rather curious discovery on Mars. It is bright, shining, mysterious and it can (or not) a meteorite.
Writing to the blog of the Curiosity team on Wednesday, Dr. Susanne P. Schwenzer referred to the unidentified object that was called "Little Colonsay".
"One of the samples we try to see better is" Little Colonsay. "The planning team believes that it could be a meteorite because it is so bright, but the aspects can deceive, and the test will only come from the chemistry" she wrote
The object was detected by ChemCam del Rover on Monday.
NASA's Curiosity rover is the most technologically-built advanced rover, equipped with 17 cameras and a robotic arm that contains specialized tools and instruments. Its mission is to determine if Mars was, or is, habitable to the microbial life.
