A photo made by the Rover shows something that resembles a flower. Already there are many speculations regarding what this object could be mainly because of how it reflects sun light.
Experts first thought it to be some plastic that had fallen of the Rover. A NASA spokesman explained that the thing from the photo does not appear to be debris from the spacecraft. Now many people think we are dealing with a Martian flower because of its translucent nature and because of the texture and form of this unidentified object. On Wednesday scientists confirmed that once water existed on Mars’ surface after analyzing an ancient rock that traveled from Mars to our home planet more than two billion years ago. Could this support the theory of a decayed plant that was caught by the Rover? NASA doesn’t think so. According to NASA scientists the object is nothing more than a crystal.
