Wandering the Martian terrain, NASA’s rover has spotted an oddly shaped rock that may have made its way from space to Earth on the Red Planet.

Using the SuperCam Remote Micro-Imager, the persistent rover I cut A series of images, Friday, revealed a donut-shaped rock on Mars. The large rock has a hole in the middle and is surrounded by smaller fragments that may have broken off from it, such as donuts and their round holes.

The donut rock may be a meteorite that landed on Mars, according to A tweet by the SETI Institute (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence). It “could be a large meteorite along with smaller pieces,” the SETI researchers wrote.

Mars is often strewn with space rocks as the planet is located next to the solar system’s main asteroid belt, which contains millions of rocky bodies. The atmosphere on Mars is only 1% as thick as Earth’s, which means that space rocks could easily travel through the Martian atmosphere largely unscathed, landing in larger chunks rather than disintegrating through Earth’s atmosphere.

Shortly after landing on the Red Planet, the Perseverance rover appears observer Another strange rock may also be a meteorite. In true Percy fashion, the rover beams it with lasers to check it out. NASA’s Perseverance Team wrote on Twitter: “This strange individual has had my science team brainstorm a lot of hypotheses.”

NASA rovers discover all kinds of Oddly shaped creatures on Mars, but sometimes we get carried away trying to get a sense of what we’re seeing on another world, like A rock formation in the form of an entrancehuman faces emerging from the rocky surface of Mars, or a discarded spoon.
