Mars Rover Curiosity Finds Martian 'Flower' and Snake-Like Rock
« on: January 06, 2013, 11:14:12 pm »
New photos of Mars from NASA's Curiosity rover have sparked a buzz of discussion over an odd formation that some have dubbed a "flower" embedded in a Martian rock. The rover has also found a snake-like rock formation winding across the Red Planet's surface

It reminds me of opal, and there ware a couple other quartz or hematite-looking objects nearby. If it were on Earth, I would say that water deposited minerals in an open space in the rock
