At 07:20:09 UTC the Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) has taken this “curious” photo of the Martian soil from a distance of only 5.9 cm and with a definition of 0.0283 mm/pixel.
The photo shows us rocks very blunted by erosion but with curious cavities hardly attributable to the erosion itself.
I think (and hope) that the phenomenon at the origin of these cavities should receive some attention from geologists and astrobiologists, their formation may be less trivial than it might seem at first glance.
This photo has been processed to allow a better view of the colors, balancing the white and slightly increasing the microcontrast.
