An odd-looking bit of rock mysteriously appeared in front of Opportunity rover in the beginning of January as the rover, waiting out the Martian winter, has not moved since the end of November, according to NASA.

They have probably had technology to travel to these other planets and have been for years! There is no way that SOMEONE hasn't already done this somewhere. Of course WE can't go! So just because THEY have the cash WE have to be here and can't make all these discoveries too? I don't believe these planets are even as far away as they all say either! It justs fits into my theory and if they make it seem SOO far away that it appears unobtainable

Its miller time on Mars some Alien just dropped a beer can
And when NASA was caught out they said it was a rock then they edited it out, then oh we just ran over it !

Give it up lads you will telling us next that there no water on Mars !

I picture a room full of people laughing hysterically that the very taxpayers who paid for this are legitimizing it! And it has been going on for many decades.

The rock is no rock at all. Its the outer protective and comouflaging shell of a reptiile and there are many of them on the surface.

It's hollow - I thought it was popcorn. "They" only hatch at night.....

It's not possible for the rover to kick it up there. The wheel has been locked into 8 Degrees toe-in for years!

Mystery rock on Mars or is it a fungus? Google it and find out.

Great progress ! Imagine that ! We went to Mars and we found -- hold on to your hat! -- a ROCK. No kidding.
In twenty years we can send colonists to Mars and in about 100 years we can have an interplanetary war with them, given human nature.

the rock appears on a flat bit of earth and however still there is no evidence of an imprecise arm movement and or wind forces , bearing in mind the evidence to the fact that the other tiny rocks appear not to have been displaced at all,

one would like to recommend the search of earlier pictures for documented sightings of the incidental but significant rock.

the rock also shows signs of being a silicone base and i hesitate to say iron from the colour ... if it is it may be O4SoMg or some such crystal and is not bled by water/solvent fracture it seems for there are clear bands of colour within it.

Strange rock movement shows signs of alien interaction
*Mar s Rock*

i noticed several factors of interest in this photo set..
1 : the rocks appear eroded flat , unlike formations in the wind....
the forming of its smooth surface deserves some electron study for they can be proof that sand regularly moved there at some point or :3 feet.
2 : the rocks are broken in such a manner as to suggest horizontal motion... but show signs of flatness still so where evidently broken a long time before the flatness appeared...
3 : such flatness takes time and weight or a whole lot of sand blasting power or and time

LOL, a rock??? guys are so silly with your years of experience, college degrees, certifications, and what not. That is no rock my fellow heterosapians. I, on the other hand, with my extended knowledge of all things extratestical in nature...have narrowed it down to two possilbe objects, And one possible scenario.

[A] It's an actual doughnut.

[ B] It's George Washingtons dentures.

[ 3] Elvis, Tupac, or Hoffa placed it there to let us know they would like us to send someone to open a Krispy Kreme, cuz they are craving jelly doughnuts.

Thins explains everything the reason we did not build our civilization on Mars...the insurance companies would not pay for the all the broken glass too many floating rocks...less gravity up there!


Rick Zimmerman 17.01.2014 21:30

The reason why it looks like old concrete? Simple answer, all the warehouses in south Florida used concrete!!! The reason it is not in color they do not want us to know it is a old south Florida warehouse. Hopefully I have answered all your questions...Nanu Nanu

Yes. Even Mars rovers have boogers too.


Criddle Andrew 17.01.2014 01:24

Why is there no colour ?


Max Quigley 17.01.2014 00:40

It's a fast food wrapper, litter thrown by a martian.


Eduardo Da Silva 16.01.2014 19:50

Yet another mysterious rock, is someone really spending taxpayer's money in it?

we'll never really know where these photos actually came from; could be nevada eh? what's the deal with secrecy and always trying to hide things anyway? there is ultimately no good reason for government to lie/hide anything.
