Subject Mars Insight Lander oddity: stone like the primordial tool - the hand axe
Poster Handle McKracken
Post Content
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.

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.
