(ORDO NEWS) — NASA’s Perseverance rover took July 12, 2022 as the best photo of the week on the NASA website. It captures something very unusual for the surface of Mars and more like a piece of some kind of thread or even the roots of a plant.
The object is so anomalous on the Martian surface and so strange that experts immediately started talking about the fact that it could be some part of the rover itself or the landing rocket.
At the same time, it is noted that there is nothing similar to these “threads” in the design of the rover, and the possibility that this substance could be accidentally taken from the Earth during the preparation of the rover for a mission to the red planet is swept aside.
However, the experts noted that it is very important to carefully check spacecraft before launch so that they do not contaminate the surface of other planets with terrestrial substances that may contain bacteria that can affect the atmosphere of the planet under study.
Curious detail: The Perseverance rover is now exploring the Jezero crater and studying the ancient river delta, as it is believed that this is an ideal place to look for signs of ancient microbial life.
Maybe the rover really found something alive or previously alive, and these “wires” are not “wires” at all, but are actually the roots of a plant or parts of a mysterious animal?
