[quote:McKracken:MV8zOTQyMjI2X0UyMUQxNjg1] Nice oddity: The biggest stone visible by the non-movable wide angle context camera of the new Mars Insight Lander looks like a flint hand axe. https://mars.nasa.gov/insight-raw-images/surface/sol/0005/icc/C000M0005_596975725EDR_F0000_0461M_.PNG https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hand_axe With a 30cm diameter of the lander's foot pad, the stone is about 20cm long, so in the range of large stone age hand axes on Earth.
