WHAT THE HECK IS THAT ON MARS?! A fossil? A flower? A Mars orchid! Morchid! (See what I did there?)

Nah, it’s most likely a bright mineral concentration in a Mars rock outcrop at Yellowknife Bay as photographed by Curiosity (although that has yet to be confirmed by NASA)… but it certainly gets our collective imaginations going. Thank you you big hulk of Mars rover, you’re constantly showing us some very cool stuff, can’t wait for your next mystery.
