The 'spoon' and other strange objects found on Mars, actually offers an insight to the oddly calm Martian environment, which can create faint geological structures. With its top-heavy, skinny structure, it’s hard to imagine something alike existing on Earth. This is because, on Earth, if the circumstances are accurate, rocks are crudely shaped by wind erosion. But it is different on Mars, where the atmosphere is quite thin and gravity is weak, these landscapes can be even more delicate making tiny projections, such as this ‘spoon’. And while conspiracy theorists will continue to be shocked by the bizarre structures on the red planet, NASA says they may not be so rare after all.
