New MSL pic of “shiny thing” shows it’s totally a piece of plastic
Remember that curious object spotted on Mars a few days ago by Curiosity? After JPL researchers determined it was likely a piece of plastic wrap from a cable that shook loose during the landing sequence, the rover took this shot with its Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) instrument on 10/12.
I’m no scientist, but yeah… it’s totally a piece of plastic.
Keep calm and carry on, Curiosity!
