NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has found some more bright stuff on the Red Planet, scientists say.

The Curiosity rover had dumped out a recent sample of Mars dirt after spotting shiny particles inside the hole dug by the shovel-like scoop on its robotic arm. Mission scientists were concerned that the bright material might be debris from the rover itself, so they ordered Curiosity to toss the Mars sample as a safety precaution, mission managers said in a statement.

As it turns out, the bright particles are actual Martian in origin, they added.

Curiosity is scooping up Mars dirt in a spot called "Rocknest" in preparation to deliver the first samples to a pair of instruments on its car-size body. The rover scooped its first Mars sample on Oct. 7, but further work was delayed when the rover's cameras spotted a bright object —likely a piece of plastic —on the ground in the area.

Scientists had cleared Curiosity to start scooping Mars dirt again ahead of the first sample study when they spotted the new bright material. Curiosity's initial Mars dirt scoops are designed to clean the rover's sampling system. [Mars Rover Curiosity's Latest Amazing Photos]

That's some food for thought Sir. The next findings may offer more clues or even solve what we're asking or riddle us with more questions. I just hope that curiosity don't kill the cat,digging into Mar's past. Someone or something might not like it too well.

They don't see much more than we see. There are small windows where they can beam data each day to the MRO, and that beams the data back to us. When they get them, they have made them public shortly thereafter. If the stuff beaming back is high res, we may not get a great number of imagery that day

Also keep in mind that they are unpacking/tuning this thing up still. Most of the priority isn't on the imagery, so much as to ensure the instruments are working and to start collecting data.

Science is a very slow process when done right.

Re: Mars Bright particles scouped by Curiosity twice are of Martian in origin
Whats absolutely certain from the images being sent back is that the martian surface is damp, you can tell that from the way the soil reacts to disturbance. If it was dry then the sand like material would flow rather than clump when disturbed just like you see in earths deserts.
