NASA’s Curiosity rover has been especially curious recently, sending back photos that absolutely rock! Yes, that’s right, the Mars rover has found some interesting rocks and has been snapping away. The latest of these is a multiple photo composite of a meteorite dubbed “cacao”, named after the main ingredient for chocolate, naturally.
The meteorite is a metal mix of iron and nickel and was spotted by the rover at the end of January. It’s estimated to be around a foot across in size and is one of several such meteorites that Curiosity has discovered on the planet.
