Somebody found a "Spoon& #34; in one of the raw images taken by @NASA's Mars rover Curiosity. The picture, taken on March 27, 2016 and found by a Youtuber (UFO Hunter), was acquired by the left mastcam onboard the rover during its 1294th day of work on the red planet.
Sooo... evidence of ancient intelligent life or did Mark Watney just forget something? 😂
