Mars rover Curiosity detected a bright object on the Martian ground as it made its first scoop of the surface of the planet, according to NASA.

Officials said they suspect the object might be a part of the six-wheeled rover, but they will not sample or scoop any more until they find out what it is actually, the Daily Express reported.

Pictures of bedrock from Curiosity, suggest a fast-moving stream once flowed on the Red Planet.

The rover landed on August 5 and is on a two-year, 2.5 billion US dollar mission to study whether microbial life could have existed on Mars in the past. (ANI)
