Scientists have solved the mystery of the "jelly doughnut" rock on Mars that appeared to come out of nowhere.
NASA said Friday that a wheel of the rover Opportunity broke it off a larger rock and then kicked it into the field of view.
The Internet was abuzz last month when the space agency released side-by-side images of the same patch of ground. Only one image showed the rock, which was white around the outside and dark red in the middle, and less than 2 inches (5.08 centimeters) wide.

ahahahah BUSH DID IT!
Bush Lied..... Jelly Donuts... DIed!
Well, if there are any dead dogs to go along with that donut, I’d say uLEO’s have invaded the planet. It is Mars, after all.
Now about that ‘merican flag on Mars...
Leonard Lawrence has been to Mars?
Because everybody knows NASA would hide evidence of life because they don’t want the massive funding increase that would come as a result. LOL
The rover is not on Mars. it is in some lab somewhere taking pictures that other scientists are studying. A lab asst. walked by and dropped something in the box. A picture was taken before he had a chance to remove it. Probably was a jelly doughnut.
Just another scam by the govt. They get a big budget to go to Mars and do all kinds of neat stuff for other to study and pour over for years to come. In reality it is in some basement somewhere costing next to nothing, showing nothing really new to anyone with the millions and millions being siphoned off for other nefarious services or just lining politicians pockets.
Bet they used the same studio where they filmed the so-called moon landing.
That sounds familiar. Wasn’t that the premise of an episode of Gilligan’s Island?
I remember that episode.
A meteorite landed and Gilligan walked into a tree he tripped over yesterday.
What is this? What the heck is this?Queeen Sheila, di you leave a jelly donut on Mars?
A cat saw a mouse. He drooled into a bucket. The bucket fell opening a door that released a bowling ball. The ball rolled down a track and hit a door. The door opened up and a ironing board fell out. As it fell out an iron fell of the board and hit a rock - chipping off a doughnut shaped chip to fly off and land right in the camera frame.
Ben watching CAPRICORN ONE have you?
Its funny. Sometimes I’ll describe something as being “a Rube Goldberg” and people just look at me. They have no idea what I’m talking about.
I guess its a function of age.
Now, for the ever-elusive popsicle stick; there just have to be some of those in this enormous universe.
“Ich bien ein Marliner!”
I am a martian doughnut?
A guy I know who works at NASA in the muzzlem outreach department. They are now looking for muzzlems on Mars. They had a little basket on the side of the rover with donuts in it to lure the muzzlems. Either the rover hit a bump and one fell out or a real muzzlem grabbed one but dropped it. It fell on unclean ground, so he left it behind.
