SUMMARY: When Opportunity sent back the first images from the surface of Mars, there was a strange object that puzzled amateurs and scientists alike - it looked like a bunny. After some analysis, scientists agreed that the object was probably about 4-5 cm long. Later images showed that the object had moved with the wind, ending up underneath the rover. This has led observers to believe that it's a piece of the rover's airbag that tore off and has been drifting around the crater, pushed by the wind.

What do you think about this story? Post your comments below.

On Earth usually 3-4 Wind Speed can cause a piece paper to flying, This is what I think : so sn mars with thin atmosphere, even a 1-2 wind speed can cause dust to fly... 3-4 wspd I think :ph34r:
