Yeah, I get the concept of burning something to determine what it's made of, but I thought it was just gonna be a small burn rather than setting a phaser to disintegrate :P
I'm betting that someone very dwarfy built the Curiosity rover.

It's going to use that laser to turn all the rocks on Mars into ‼MAGMA‼.

The rock will barely be scratched. The burned off portion will be nanograms, at most.

So my crundles are staying intact unless they're newly spawned... until they are exposed to anything that isn't at room temperature.  This mostly seems to mean blood, specifically, their own.  Then they go poof very quickly.

Near as I can tell, it's going to vaporize the whole thing, then sniff the smoke for chemical traces.

It's known as the Oppai-Kaiju effect. The islands of Japan generate a sort anti-gravity field, which allows breasts to behave as if in microgravity. It's also what allows Godzilla and friends to become 50 stories tall, and lets ninjas run up the side of a skyscraper.

The little rock that could.  :D

And apparently has a name now...Coronation (presumably from the crown-like shape?)
