Does anyone here read Mars? I’ve been re-reading it and it’s killing me…it was definitely way over my head in 6th grade…it’s like…I’d always thought of it as a shoujo but if this is a shoujo this is the most cutthroat messed-up shoujo ever. This is so stressful. Half the characters could be charged for attempted murder. 

Bones, balls, people, and more – what’s with all the anomalous objects spotted on the surface of Mars?

As quickly as NASA publishes unbelievably detailed photographs of the Martian surface, people back home find odd and unusual objects within those photos. Of course NASA always discounts the newfound anomalous objects as “natural rock formations”. Matters were clouded in early 2014 when observant researchers found “before and after” photos proving that NASA occasionally “cleans up” some of their photos (and videos). NASA calmly explained that in some instances, camera imperfections must be corrected using software – like Photoshop. Still, despite NASA’s proven manipulation of the Mars photographs, eagle-eyed researchers continue finding unusual anomalies in the photographs of the Martian surface and ask “Have you *ever* in your life seen a natural rock formation on Earth that looks like that?”

Here are a collection of some of the unusual sights found on Mars to date.

The Thigh Bone

Resembling a fossilized femur bone, this odd object was explained by NASA as a “shiny-looking rock” that had been sculpted by erosion (either wind or water). Others however pointed out the impossibility of wind and erosion shaping a rock in such a bizarre manner. The Thigh Bone was found on the Red Planet in August 2014.

The Rodent or Mars Rat

Looking like a mouse or squirrel laying on its stomach, the Mars Rat was captured (on film) by NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity in September 2012 and generated a lot of Internet interest after viewers noted the features – eyes, nose, ears, cheeks, legs – of the cute little creature were easily discernible.

The lizard

This one’s a bit tougher to explain as a rock as the features are very clear and include a long, thin tail which seemingly would be an impossible shape to be formed by natural erosion. The object was reportedly discovered by a Japanese researcher in March 2013 and appears to show a tail, four legs, and other obvious characteristics of a lizard.

The frozen woman

Photographed by the NASA rover Spirit, this frozen woman perched on a rock had many wondering if the rain of fire over Sodom and Gomorrah took place on Mars instead. The photo looks remarkably like a female figure with an outstretched arm. The image was sent back to Earth by the Mars Spirit rover in 2008.

The Iguana

The Iguana was discovered by an eagle-eyed enthusiast on November 6, 2013 in photos taken by the Mars Curiosity rover. NASA was informed of the finding but refused to turn the rover back to investigate further. At the time, some began to wonder if NASA were purposefully planting life on the Red Planet.

The Ball

Shaped like a perfect sphere, the Ball was discovered late in 2014 by the Curiosity rover on sol 746 atop a rocky outcrop. The perfectly round object sits atop a flat rock and looks like a dirty cannonball. NASA explained it as “concretion”.

The Martian Totem pole

Maybe not a totem pole (or traffic stoplight) but what is this bizarre structure and is there any natural formation comparable to it on Earth?

The Jelly Donut

The Jelly Donut wasn’t known as much for its unusual appearance as the fact that it appeared on Mars during a 12-day period when Opportunity wasn’t looking. The unusual object simply materialized out of thin air right in front of Opportunity.

Skulls on Mars

Several instances of skulls, both human and animal, have reportedly been found on the Martian surface. Below are a few notable instances.

The Golden Disc

The Golden Disc was discovered in December 2014 in NASA’s photojournal (PIA17083) and featured a disc-shaped object nestled between a pair of rocks.  It stood out not only because of its unusual shape, but its shiny, golden hue which clearly indicated it was some sort of alien metallic object sitting on the surface of Mars.

The face on Mars

And who could forget the 1976 image of the Face on Mars which was later explored by NASA and explained as a natural rock formation.

In conclusion: whether you believe it to be the human mind’s tendency to find patterns in randomness, or ruins of an ancient civilization, you can’t deny, there’s some weird shit on Mars.


A Martian Sunrise - Daybreak at Gale Crater

Gale Crater can be seen in the center of this image with its central mountain of Strata. This is the Crater where NASA landed the Curiosity Mars Rover and made history in 2012. Curiosity discovered that this crater was once at the bottom of a large freshwater lake. The water in this lake would have been drinkable by humans and hospitable to microbial life. After exploring the Crater, Curiosity proceeded to explore the nearby plains of Aeolis Palus in search of life. Curiosity continues its search today, 140,000,000 miles away from home on a planet inhabited entirely by robots. (Though this image is computer generated, all of the geological features are correct and realistic.)

Watching the Sunsets of Mars Through Robot Eyes

Watching a sunset on Earth can be a dazzling and beautiful natural wonder. But what about sunsets on other worlds?

Situated over 50 percent further away from the sun than Earth, there’s one planet that we’ve also had the fortune to see the sun drop below the horizon while standing on the surface – Mars. However, we have yet to experience this Martian perspective with our own eyes; instead we depend on images beamed to Earth after being witnessed by robotic lenses and CCDs from NASA’s landers and rovers.
