So a meteorite just drifted lazily down to the surface and settled in without leaving any marks?

Very odd. I'd be quite surprised if it weren't a meteorite *nodding*. It looks lonely...

It may not be an iron meteorite possibly hard iron sulphate one.

I think it's amazing this "90 day mission" is still doing science! Kudos!!

Odd seeing a rock of that size all by itself.

I'm always amazed by how ocean-like the ground looks.
