Ever since that 'meteorite' was said to be a 'meteorite' by NASA, I could not have helped but notice the lack of a CRATER this thing should have left when it hit the surface. I am sure it didn't roll there, or was BLOWN by the wind! Even the flimsy heat shield made an impression and OPPY has photoed the hell out of that.
I suggest that it is an original artifact of MARS and not a meteorite.
Anyone who has ever read any book on astronomy and noticed impact results from meteors would gather immediately the lack of such an impact site deficiency. They go together. Rock>gravity>impact>mess. The Moon is a good simple example for the reference.
So how could this thing be called a 'meteorite'.
What is it really?
No RAT test was initiated by OPPY>>that from NASA. OK that's fine...they seem to suggest that the material is nickel and iron...very hard and the Rover RATS were designed to cut rock..ok on that too. That part makes sense.
The surface markings seem to indicate a heated molten bubbly event took place and consisting of nickel/iron not much erosion has taken place, either.
Its sitting there amongst the 'berries' without any sand accumulation around it, which would indicate an early arrival to the surface...unlike the rocks that Spirit has shown us, weathered, pointed, jagged, smooth-faced, etc... A difference of material too.
It is a puzzle, and a good one. Not much has been said about this thing that would enlighten us.
I am going to make a 3D of it for a better look.
