Donut on Mars? Rock image from Perseverance rover captures imagination

The extensive frontier of house is whole of surprises, which include, seemingly, those people that come in the form of breakfast pastries.

NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover captured the impression on Friday, which the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute (SETI Institute) then shared to Twitter on Monday. In it, a massive, round rock with a sizeable hole in the center can be viewed resting on the planet’s floor. Around it, more compact stone particles of the identical shade are scattered.

The SETI Institute claimed in the tweet that the object, which they referred to as a “donut-formed rock,” may possibly be a “large meteorite alongside lesser items,” indicating it could have originated in other places right before landing on Mars.
