The crater seems very superficial.

I'm also interested to see the answer about the micron scale calibration, seems like when there is a calibration movie it soooo obvious, the tracks seem huge. Then I find myself trying to determine on real movies if a tiny spec might be dust or not.
I don't want to be an alarmist, but unless people more knowledgeable than me come forward with rational explanations of what this item is we must pay heed to Occam's Raxor, and are thereby left with the most straightforward explanation, that it is a hair, probably human.
But that opens a whole can of worms about the scale factor.
As of this point in time, its the elephant in the room that nobody wants to notice.

A little specificity man!!!DustBuster wrote:as a matter of fact, it looks like it fits in the scratch upthread!!!
So you are speculating that this opaque object is composed of scratched out areogel?DustBuster wrote:The first post above yours... then the picture with the straight scratch (?) 2 more above that.
