The Perseverance Mars rover sent by NASA had discovered something so strange, that it feels like it has come straight from a science fiction novel. The rover was traversing Mars when it found a coiled string-like material that resembled a swirl of noodles.
This would have been interesting if it was indeed an extraterrestrial dinner, but alas, this odd thing was nothing but space junk, left by the arrival of Percy in 2021.

The Trash Dropped by NASA
This was not the first instance where Percy had come across some litter dropped by NASA on the Red Planet.
The Perseverance Mars rover discovered a thermal blanket, last month. It was previously attached to the jet pack, powered by the rocket itself, that assisted the probe to land on Mars’ dusty surface. It was neatly tucked into a rock placed about a kilometer away from the site of landing.
Percy is currently busy collecting specimens from the Jezero Crater, which is a mind-boggling region present on Mars. This region was believed to contain an ancient river delta. Scientists are hopeful that the rocks recovered from this region will help us understand if the Red Planet supported microbial life or could even support it currently.
NASA has stated that the rocky samples would be back on our planet before 2033 but the return trip looks to be logistically far away and was the reason behind a huge drama.
Percy will keep sending pictures back to our planet, in the meanwhile, and we will keep our eyes open to spot some more strange or interesting extraterrestrial objects. Maybe even spaghetti!!!
