Curiosity Rover finds similarities in Hawaiian and Martian soil
Mars is tens of millions of miles away from Earth, but the planet’s soil isn’t worlds away from what is found in the Aloha State. NASA’s Curiosity rover has determined that soil on Mars contains minerals similar to dirt found in Hawaii.

In its first-ever detailed X-ray of Martian soil, Curiosity has used one of its instruments to extract minerals from a Martian soil sample. Both feldspar and olivine – minerals typically associated with volcanic eruptions – were found in the specimen.

NASA scientists say the soil is similar to the volcanic soil surrounding Hawaii’s Mauna Kea volcano.

Seems pretty easy to explain: wind currents carried volcanic soil from Hawaii's eruptions into the deserts of New Mexico, right?
