A curious, shiny object was discovered on Mars by NASA's Curiosity Rover, the Curiosity team said last week in an update to its missing blog. [19659003] The team has nicknamed the object "Little Colonsay".

"The planning team thinks it could be a meteor because it's so shiny," the team wrote. "But the look can be deceiving, and evidence will come only from chemistry."

Curiosity has a tool called ChemCam to examine the object.

The rover has been on the surface of Mars since August 6, 201

NASA's InSight Lander landed on Mars last week.

InSight or Interior Exploration with seismic surveys, geodesy and heat transport will explore a part of Mars about which we least know: its depth interior. It was launched on 5 May. InSight will spend two years exploring the interior, where the building blocks beneath the surface of the planet have recorded its history.
