  Yogi Rock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Yogi Rock is a rock on Mars that was discovered during the Mars Pathfinder mission in 1997, and named by Geoffrey A. Landis.
The rocks found on the mission were named after famous icons and figures, and Yogi Rock was thought to resemble the head of a bear looking away from the spacecraft.
Yogi was also the first large rock reached by the Sojourner rover and was analyzed by an X-ray spectrometer to determine its composition.

 Talk:Yogi Rock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Yogi Bear article notes that " In the initial photos the rock had the appearance of a little bear facing away" - I found that thinking about it this way, as a generic bear, made it much more apparent.
Um, no. There is no dispute as to which rock is Yogi, the dispute is to why the hell it looks like it.
You might be amused to note that we don't just have an article on Yogi Rock - we've also ones on the Genesis Rock (from the Moon), ALH84001 (from Mars), and Heat Shield Rock (still on Mars).

Yogi's name is an obvious nod to the famed baseball star Yogi Berra.
Yogi Bear is well-known for a variety of different catchphrases, including his pet name for picnic baskets ("pic-a-nic baskets") and his favorite self-promotion ("I'm smarter than the average bear!").
Yogi Rock was discovered following the landing of the Mars Pathfinder on the planet in 1997.

 Week 3: Red, White, and Somewhat Blue at the Pathfinder Site
The science team provided two possible interpretations for the sharp contact between the "red" and "blue" portions of Yogi: either it is a geologic contact between two layered rock units; or it is the result of preferential wind deposition of bright, red dust on one portion of the rock but not the other.
It is the bluish surfaces on rocks like Yogi that the science team is most interested in—the assumption is that these are dust-free and weathering-free surfaces upon which the alpha proton X ray spectrometer (APXS) could best determine the composition of the rocks.
Unfortunately, in the case of Yogi it appears that the APXS was placed on the dusty, red side (Figure 1); thus the team is working on subtracting the dust spectrum from the APXS results for Yogi that were described earlier in the mission.

 Mars Pathfinder
"Yogi" is a meter-size rock about 5 meters northwest of the Mars Pathfinder lander and was the second rock visited by the Sojourner Rover’s alpha proton X-ray spectrometer (APXS) instrument.
This mosaic of Yogi was produced by combining four "Super Pan" frames taken with the IMP camera.
Shadows were processed separately from the rest of the rock and combined with the rest of the scene to bring out details in the shadow of Yogi that would be too dark to view at the same time as the sunlit surfaces.

To accomplish "science" this week, Sojourner was commanded to drive from Yogi rock through the granular patch known as the Cabbage Patch and on to Scooby Doo.
Yogi was the center of attention during the second week on Mars (Figure 1).
Yogi is different from the rock examined during Week 1, Barnacle Bill, which has the chemistry of an andesite.

 ARVAL - Pathfinder Mission Status Reports - 2
The rover had been lodged against the rock since Wednesday evening; it was believed that commands sent Thursday to move the rover were not received by the lander because of an error in the timing of a radio uplink session.
Data received during last night's downlink session indicated that the Sojourner rover is positioned against the rock nicknamed Yogi, with its alpha proton X-ray spectrometer (APXS) instrument in place to study the rock’s elemental composition.
Yogi, low in quartz content, appears to be more primitive than Barnacle Bill, "having not gone through the cooking that Barnacle Bill and other andesites have gone through", said Dr. James Greenwood, University of Tennessee, a member of the mineralogy science team.

 SpaceViews: Mars Pathfinder: Updates July 7-9
Additional analysis of the rock "Barnacle Bill" show it is a single rock and not a composite of several smaller ones, which makes it more likely it is volcanic in origin.
Instead they took high-resolution images of the area around the rock and directed Sojourner early Wednesday to go to a side of the rock that was safer to access.
Update -- July 8 5:30pm EDT (2130 UT): Analysis of the rock "Barnacle Bill" shows that it appears to be an andesite, a type of igneous rock that is somwhat different than basalt, which scientists had expected the rock to be.

The discovery that the rock known as Barnacle Bill appears to be composed of the same material, rather than an aggregate of several rock fragments.
It took photos of Yogi from its front and rear cameras, took some photos of the lander, then was left overnight with its alpha proton X-ray spectrometer buried in the Martian soil like an electronic aardvark to collect data.
Among the features were a modest arroyo that appeared to contain wind-blown sand, a low hill that proved to be the edge of a crater several miles away and, on the horizon, a faint, conical peak believed to be about 1,900 feet (576 meters) high.

 'Yogi' Rock Found On Mars Similar To Rocks Underneath 'Yogi' Berra Stadium, Geologist Says
UPPER MONTCLAIR, N.J. --   "Yogi," the rock that the Sojourner rover investigated on Mars,  is remarkably similar to the rocks underneath recently dedicated "Yogi"  Berra Stadium on the Montclair State University campus, a university geologist says.
This if very much like the rock that underlies the University campus and can be found in the former quarry where Yogi Berra baseball stadium is being constructed.
Pope noted that both the 'Yogi' rock on Mars and the rocks underlying MSU's baseball stadium "come from volcanic flows that resemble those from Hawaii or Iceland.

PASADENA, California (CNN) -- After days of being stuck on a rock named Yogi, the Mars Pathfinder rover rolled away from the Martian boulder Saturday and prepared to study its chemical composition.
The six-wheeled Sojourner was expected to begin "sniffing" the rock's chemical composition with its alpha proton X-ray spectrometer, barring further computer malfunctions.
The delays began two days ago when Sojourner moved too close to Yogi and one of its wheels got stuck on the side of the rock.
