NASA shock as FOSSILS 'found on Mars'

NASA shock as FOSSILS 'found on Mars'

While it is fun to imagine that NASA has found signs of life on Mars, it is more likely that the formations are related to minerals.

First captured in black and white, the objects were later filmed in color, raising discussions about their possible origin.

The Curiosity Rover discovered the marks, prompting Nasa to tweet: 'Each is about a quarter-inch long. Well, till now the scientists have not confirmed about what is that object but it is expected that, it could be trace fossils.

The rocks around the rover's current hangout piqued scientists interest even before Curiosity wheeled up to them.

'If not trace fossils, what other geological explanations will NASA come up with'.

The tiny tubes could be evidence of bioturbation, which is what occurs when organisms living in sediments leave an imprint on their structure.

Raiders hire Jon Gruden
The move comes one day after it was first confirmed that Gruden had a 10-year, $100 million contract in place to rejoin the team. The long wait is over, Jon Gruden is finally returning to the football sideline and it will be for the Oakland Raiders .

MAHLI is a focusable colour camera mounted on the rover's arm. "The burrows, once refilled with sediments, fossilized, and then exposed by erosion, can end up looking like wiggly sticks". Apparently, it is just an assumption and the team needs more data to make such claim, Lee said. However, right now NASA is not planning to carry out space mission for this.

It may be some crystals in the rock or like crystal molds, Vasavada stated. We are positive that whatever these stick figures are, they are definitely not the remains of a space dinosaur, Viking runes or tire tracks, no matter how much you might wish they were.

Unfortunately, determining the nature and origins of these tiny landscape features will be hard with just the Curiosity rover, though it is being used to gather data to help researchers solve the mystery.

It is not the first time that NASA and other people have spotted some odd object in the images shot by the Curiosity rover.

Could these marks be traces of alien life? However, the discovery of Gautam Buddha statue on the red planet caught most attention which suggested that aliens on Mars are not only intelligent but they follow a culture just like we humans do on Earth.

Nasa got to these features after noticing a blue-hue in the same region from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, which has been orbiting the Red Planet since 2006. If all the clues fit correctly, then the discovery will shock the entire world as it will prove we are not alone. Do give your opinion in the comment section below.
