Sedimentary rocks on Mars

This post is a time-lapse video (which you can control) showing geologic highlights that were "captured" by NASA's Curiosity Rover during a period of 28 months (833 Martian days or Sols) exploring a small part of Gale Crater. It found abundant evidence of sedimentary rocks. What next? Stromatolites on Mars? That would be sensational.
