A jelly doughnut rock on Mars is one strange news story that experts remain baffled by this week, though new evidence on this stone — being called “Pinnacle Island” by researchers — is now being examined and yielding even more peculiar results. Scientists have recently discovered that the foreign object is in fact high in 3 elements in particular: sulfur, magnesium, and manganese.
Even "Star Trek" actor William Shatner wants to know what's going on with the stone, which looks like a jelly doughnut.
The jelly doughnut rock, as it is being affectionately called for looking quite like the sweet dessert, is in fact one of the oddest things on Mars that space experts have ever come across on the distant planet. The stone randomly appeared before NASA’s Opportunity rover last week, and has remained a source of interest and speculation ever since. First spotted this Jan. 8, experts quickly realized that this stone had not existed in the same location only 13 days before.
