Caption: Martian rock surface. Coloured image showing the coating of the 'Chocolate Hills' rock that was found on the rim of Mars' Concepcion crater. This thick coating could be remnants of a layer that was changed by the action of water and weather or melted when a meteor impacted Mars, ejecting this rock and others and creating the Concepcion crater. Imaged by the microscopic imager onboard the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity, on 9th February 2010.
