This brilliant object is different from other Martian rocks.
Planet Mars is a dusty place, so if something shiny appears on the surface, it immediately catches the eye. On November 28, NASA's Curiosity team posted a photo of a new find on the surface — a brilliant piece of ... something. In appearance resembles a small nugget.
Researchers believe that this may be a meteorite due to the brilliance. However, the view is deceptive and only chemical research will serve as proof. ChemCam is a Curiosity rover toolkit that includes a camera, spectrometers, and a laser that enable NASA to analyze the composition of Martian rocks and soil. Rover must study the find to reveal the true nature. Scientists believe that a theory with a meteorite is most likely. Back in 2008, Opportunity found an iron meteorite on Mars. This was the first time a meteorite was identified on another planet. Even Curiosity was lucky to face a giant specimen on the Martian surface in 2014.
