Is this a Martian??




Mystery image of 'life on Mars'

Is there life on Mars?
An image of a mysterious shape on the surface of Mars, taken by Nasa spacecraft Spirit, has reignited the debate about life on the Red Planet.

A magnified version of the picture, posted on the internet, appears to some to show what resembles a human form among a crop of rocks.

While some bloggers have dismissed the image as a trick of light, others say it is evidence of an alien presence.

The image is a recent Nasa posting of the Spirit's landing in 2004.

Perspective

When the robotic rover set down on 24 January 2004, its images disappointed space-watchers hoping for signs of extraterrestrial life.

Now they appear convinced that this image provides the evidence they have been trawling Nasa's photo files for.

The blown-up image seems to resemble a figure striding among the Martian rocks.

The internet has been abuzz with postings offering theories.

One said it was a garden gnome, another that it was the Virgin Mary.

A third suggested Bigfoot, the hairy bipedal mountain beast that appears in various guises in a number of legends around the world.

But the consensus seemed to be that it bore a striking resemblance to the Little Mermaid statue in the Danish capital, Copenhagen.

Poster "Madurobob" said it was a statue "obviously built by an ancient civilisation that later departed Mars and settled Denmark".

Badastronomy.com tried to apply some perspective: "A man? It's a tiny rock only a few inches high. It's only a few feet from the rover!"

I'm thinking just above the rock formations in the middle, on the left-hand side. It looks like someone or something is pointing.

lol whut


While I'm sure there's life out there, it's a lot farther away than Mars. And bigger and less ridiculous looking than that tiny rock/shape/shadow, whatever the fuck it is.

Know what it looks like? It looks like Zorak from Space Ghost Coast to Coast.

Clearly a shadow, the crease on the rock is coming out from the 'arm'.

obviously there's no life on mars.
and if there was, i'd hope we'd blow the fuck out of it with enough nukes to dismantle mars into small bite size pieces individually wrapped - an ideal snack size for halloween youngsters.
