Thousands of strange white rocks found on Mars. Will they ever be brought to Earth?

Mars’ rusty crimson floor could have given it its well-known “Purple Planet” standing, however it might additionally seem that hundreds of white rocks are surprisingly littered on the Martian floor. NASA’s Perseverance rover, a robotic geologist that has been exploring the Jezero Crater since early 2021, puzzled scientists when it delivered photographs of over 4,000 light-toned, pebble-sized rocks scattered everywhere in the crater ground.

“These are very uncommon rocks and we’re attempting to determine what’s been happening,” Candice Bedford, a planetary scientist at Purdue College in Indiana and a member of the Mars 2020 science staff, stated on the Lunar and Planetary Science Convention (LSPC) final month.
