'Blueberries' found on Mars

The Martian puzzles is never-ending. The red planet has been explored by several robotic rovers of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and it turns out that robots explorers find a wide variety of strange things, such as the discovery of 'blueberries'.

The NASA's Martian rover named Spirit and Opportunity have been doing their job of exploring and photographing many objects that exist on Mars for the past decade. Now shots from the Mars rover will be exhibited in the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC.
These loose, BB-sized, hematite-rich spherules are embedded in this Martian rock like blueberries in a muffin and released over time by erosion. The Mars Rover Opportunity found this cluster of them at its Eagle Crater landing site and analyzed their composition with its spectrometers. Hypotheses about their formation have contributed to the story of water on Mars. (Picture from: http://www.space.com/)
Robotic explorer named Mars Rover Opportunity discovered a set of objects shaped like blueberries in the Eagle Crater region on Mars. After photographing the strange object, then analyze it with spectometer.

The investigators theory said the objects such as the blueberries were the results of failed chemical reactions because there was no relief from the elements of life. In the last years the researchers revealed the clear evidence that microbes are part of the nature of the formation of life. This is exactly what makes the researchers predict that the Martian has water.

The discovery of microbes shaped like blueberries was not only a sign that Mars has water, but also alleged that there was a microbe that lives in the red planet. Both robotic explorers not only find objects shaped like blueberries, but also a very wide desert.
Ralph Bagnold, an early pioneer of dune studies, remarked that—compared to the nearly static chaos that seems to characterize slowly crumbling, weathering landscapes—sand dunes can "move inexorably, in regular formation, over the surface of the country, growing, retaining their shape, even breeding, in a manner which by its grotesque imitation of life, is vaguely disturbing to an imaginative mind."

Some unique photos will be on display in an exhibition entitled 'Spirit and Opportunity: 10 Years Roving Across Mars' in Washington DC, at January 10, 2014, as reported by the Daily Mail on Thursday, January 9, 2014.

Spirit and Opportunity landed on Mars separately the first time in January 2004 in different parts of the planet. Both conducted the exploration of mountains, meteorites, and craters on the Red Planet... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DAILY MAIL | SPACE]
