In Pictures: What is so infinitely cool about Mars...
This shiny-looking rock generated a lot of interest from scientists. Shot by NASA's Curiosity Mars rover, NASA said some casual observers might see a resemblance to a car door handle, hood ornament or some other type of metallic object. To Ronald Sletten of the University of Washington, Seattle, a collaborator on Curiosity's science team, the object is an interesting study in how wind and the natural elements cause erosion and other effects on various types of rocks.
