curiosity rover photos


A photo taken by the Mars Curiosity Rover in May 2015 shows what appears to be a small pyramid on the planet’s surface. This isn’t the first pyramid found on Mars and it joins a growing list of pyramids found on other astral bodies besides Earth. Are they somehow connected to our own pyramids?

The photo was taken at location Sol 978 in the Jocko Chute, a NASA nickname for the saddle-shaped pass west of Jocko Butte. It’s estimated that the pyramid is about five feet in height, so either the builders were small, it’s a model for a larger structure or it’s the top of a pyramid that’s buried under the Martian soil.
