It's not just "jelly doughnut sized", it really is a jelly doughnut, dropped by a passing gaffer.

Could the "rock" be the actuator that stopped working, chewed up enough to not be immediately recognizable?

Could someone persuade NASA to build and sell PCs as a source of revenue.
This thing is still running with a slight defect after 10 years.

My PC is 4 years old and so far I've had to replace the power supply, the hard disk, and the video card.

Once upon a time you roved so fine,
You threw conspiracy nuts a dime past your prime, didn't you?
Earth would radio: "Beware rover, this mission ain't over."
You thought they were all proud of you.
You used to rove about,
Scientists watched you checking out
That rock you kicked up with your meal
And you're wondering what's the deal
And why you're stuck alone in this Martian ordeal.

How does it feel?
How does it feel
To be so far from home?
And it remains a complete unknown
What caused this rolling stone?

It found the dancing rock? Good, now it just needs to go to the singing cactus, and that's where the invisible swordsman will be.
