NASA’s Curiosity Rover Discovers a Book-Like Rock on Mars, a “Novel” Find

NASA has released a photo of what looks like a fossilized book among the photos sent by NASA’s Curiosity rover.

The image of a Mars rock seen in this image looks like a fossilized book.

This image was taken by the Curiosity Rover on April 15 and sent It has been 3,800 Martian days since the rover arrived on Mars.

This image was taken by the Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) camera mounted on the rover’s robotic arm. In this picture, the stone looks like an open book, and the stone slab in the middle looks like a page being turned.

This stone looks like a book, but the size is much smaller than a book. The size of this stone is only 1 inch wide from the cross section.

A NASA official explained that these strangely shaped rocks are common on Mars.

The NASA official went on to explain that the shape of the stone is caused by the dissolution of the minerals in the rock by the water, leaving only the insoluble rock.

It looks like this stone was once buried under the silt of the river bed. But over millions of years, this rock came out when the soil was blown away by wind erosion.

In February 2022, the Curiosity Rover found a rock shaped like a rock flower. This stone flower is about 1 cm in size.

In February 2023, they found the small chicken shells left on the floor of the ancient lake that had dried up.

Scientists have found many geological features on Mars that were left behind by ancient rivers flowing through them. Among these geological features is a rock shaped like a teddy bear’s face.
