Mystery Solved: No Jelly Donut Deliveries to Mars

pia17942-640Remember a couple of weeks ago when the Mars Rover discovered a rock the size and shape of a jelly doughnut that mysteriously appeared out of no where? The people at NASA started calling the rock Pinnacle Island which just served to increase the mystery.  The theories on where the rock came from were many and varied with the leading being that the rock was flipped up by one of the rover’s wheels or that it was spewed out after a nearby meteorite collision. Then there was the other explanation hat I was really rooting for, Aliens.

Well now the mystery has been solved. As expected the rock was thrown into its current location by the rover itself. After some exploration the teams at NASA found a broken rock slightly uphill from Pinnacle Island that was broken when the rover ran it over. Pinnacle Island must have broken off and rolled into its new location from there.

Now the question is, who at NASA is driving over rocks and why? Were they just trying to catch some sweet air? That’s the only explanation that I’ll be happy with. Sounds to me like it’s time to reevaluate the driving credentials of the people driving this billion dollar car on Mars.

Thanks to Cody who was really hoping it would turn out to be Martian teens throwing rocks at the rover.
