NASA Curiosity finds shiny objects on Mars: or for meteorites – Scientific Exploration – cnBeta.COM



According to foreign media reports, Mars is a dusty place, so when there is a brilliant object, it will be especially attractive. On Wednesday, NASA's Curiosity team updated their post on their mission blog that they found a brilliant object on the surface of Mars. It is reported that the object, captured by curiosity on Monday, called Little Colonsay, which looks like a little gold nugget.

A member of the Cursity team, Susanne Schwenzer, wrote: “The project team thought that it could be a meteorite because it’s too bright, but the appearance would deceive people, and the evidence showed that this was due to a chemical reaction.”

Next, ChemCam on Curiosity will explore Little Colonsay to determine if this is really a meteorite. If it turns out to be a meteorite, it will not be too surprising, because NASA Opportunity discovered a meteorite on Mars as early as 2008 – this is the first time that a meteorite was detected on another planet. ,
