JPL has finished “upgrading” MSLs software and have proudly announced “The science can continue…”
The term science must mean something else when it gets applied to anything to do with the exploration of Mars by any of JPLS surface tech.
JPL have thrown to independent researchers to sort out, namely a metallic “hubcap” shaped object thinly veiled with a layer of Malins artificial rust pixel. (Easily removed as shown in the video).
It seems the rover….roved all around this object but couldn’t detect it with any of its “science” equipment….must have been busy “drilling” again?
