What is this? A vacuum cleaner head ?
Is it an artifact from some ancient Martian civilization? Or could it indeed be a man-made object, discarded from the rover itself?
These are blow-ups and enhancements of a picture taken by one of the Mars rovers. In the background there is a formation that looks like an elevated roadway or bridge. The color has been added to show it more clearly.
Is it just an optical illusion of stratified layers in the hillside… or is this evidence of a past Martian civilization? What do you think?
The latest curiosity from the planet Mars, photographed by the Curiosity rover on August 14, 2014, is an object that very much looks like a bone of some kind. Some observers have likened it to a thigh bone.
There shouldn’t be bones of any kind on Mars, according to planetary scientists, since life — not even in microbial form — has never been detected there. And certainly no evidence for large forms of life has ever been confirmed. Or is this artifact the evidence?
Really, this rock on Mars can not be explained, it remains a mystery! Okay, it’s probably not a Martian totem pole, but what the heck is that thing?
Does it look like a natural formation to you? Is there natural formation comparable to it on Earth?
The mysterious image above was taken by the Mars Orbiter Camera onboard the Mars Global Surveyor. Take a close look. It resembles a glass-like structure, almost like a tube. It looks segmented, like an earthworm.
These tunnels are 50 meters across and kilometers long.
