The Perseverance rover continues to amaze scientists with its findings on the red planet.
The NASA team reported that the rover found an unexpected object on Mars – a piece of debris stuck between two pieces of rock.
The Perseverance team explained that the shiny object could be a piece of thermal “quilt” that was used to protect the rover from extreme temperatures during its landing.
According to Global News, people have never set foot on the surface of Mars, but managed to leave garbage there.
My team has spotted something unexpected: It’s a piece of a thermal blanket that they think may have come from my descent stage, the rocket-powered jet pack that set me down on landing day back in 2021. pic.twitter.com/O4rIaEABLu
