NASA Mars rover eyes walrus-shaped boulder: 'Interesting stuff'

NASA's Perseverance rover has already sent back thousands of images from its new home in the Jezero Crater on Mars. Occasionally, NASA chooses a cool view to highlight, as it did on Tuesday with a look at a boulder the rover spotted in the distance.

"Passed this boulder and took a closer look. Some of my team see similarities to volcanic rocks on Earth," the Perseverance team tweeted. The large, undulating rock bears a passing resemblance to a walrus, which puts it in good company with recent looks at a "butt crack rock" and a rock shaped like a brachiosaurus.
