Oppy’s shiny new object
Oppy’s shiny new object While scientists, professors, and students from around the world gathered at LPSC in Texas to offer up and take in the latest research in planetary and lunar research, Opportunity was approaching a group of vesicular rocks. They could be impact melt, rocks that were instantaneously melted by the high pressures and temperatures created when the asteroid or comet that created Endeavour hit. Or they could be another new type of Martian rock. The science team’s investigation is underway. NASA / JPL-Caltech / Cornell / ASU
