NASA’s Curiosity rover discovered a “duck” in the Mars code list

the NASA’s Curiosity rover found in Mars a loving duck shaped rockan image that adds to other findings of this type, such as a fish, a cat, a portion of spaghetti and even a secret door.

Since ten years ago, the space ship He scours the red planet for signs of past life, but also captures stunning images. Over time, the game of pareidolia took hold, a human tendency to detect familiar aspects in inanimate forms, such as the “smiley faces” you might see on a plug socket.

This new image was captured on October 22 and Andrea Luck recently popularized it on social media.. In the photos you can see the rock with a beak-like bulge on top of a stubby shape that could be the body of the bird.

Science on Mars and animal rocks

The Curiosity rover is currently exploring Mount Sharp, a mountain that forms a central peak in the middle of Gale Crater. According to a NASA blog, scientists believe that this region harbored streams and ponds on Mars billions of years ago which, after drying, left behind minerals and mud deposits.

Those areas, IFL Science explains, became layers of stone, eroded over billions of years by the planet’s winds and dust storms, resulting in the peculiar geological features, as on this occasion, in duck shape.

On another occasion, China’s Yutu 2 rover found an old “moon cube” and an “alien hut” that ultimately turned out to be just rocks.

Curiosity spent 3,647 sols -Martian days- on the red planet and continues to function perfectly.
