The Mars rover, Curiosity, has found another striking example of God’s creative power on the red planet. The rover took a picture of a shiny object that bears a resemblance to a door handle or hood ornament. Scientists say the unique find is not evidence of an ancient civilization on mars that took the family car out to Olympus Mons for a picnic. Rather they say the object is a likely a rock that has been shaped by centuries of wind erosion. The rover has found other interesting objects on Mars. Earlier it took a picture of a bright sliver in the dirt. While many think that object may be a piece of plastic left over from the rover’s landing, the vehicle did photograph bright flecks in one of the holes it dug which could be a shiny mineral native to the planet. Scientists say wind eroded rocks can be found on Earth in dry, gusty places like Antarctica. They said, “The shiny surface suggests that this rock has a fine grain and is relatively hard. Hard, fine grained rocks can be polished by the wind to form very smooth surfaces.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
