Life on Mars?

I first spotted this story surfing the news on my phone whilst waiting for breakfast but have since read a couple of other newspaper and online reports.

It seems that a 'figure' has been captured by NASA's Spirit explorer during its exploration of Mars.

Could it be life? Could it be a rock formation? Could Bigfoot really be a Martian?

It is the great human spirit that tries to make random pixels into something meaningful (like finding faces in clouds)!

There are other areas of the photos that could look like various things, were you so inclined...

(Should I finish this with a "bah, humbug!"?)

It does resemble that picture of Big Foot doesn't it?

It's only when you look at the full picture (on the mail site, not the Torygraph) that you realise just how tiny the original detail was - some of the "details" must have started out as single pixels! It's like the crap they pull with image "enhancement" in CSI, not real-world science.

I think it looks like the little mermaid from the entrance to Copenhagen!

It the sand People, they are easily scared.

Plus NASA could just point the camera at the rock formation and get a better picture. If its not there then it's alive, if it is then it's a trick of the light.

However will NASA point the camera at it again?

Remember teh whole face on Mars bollox, turned out to be a trick of the light. But whent he truth came out it wans't as widly publisised as the speculation.

I say take another more detailed picture than we decide.

Either that or the Sand People are comeing to take revenge on Lucas for Jar Jar Binks.

The picture itself is already of a very small area. If it was life, it'd be pixie life.

As the picture was taken in 2004 I doubt NASA not taking another one could really hold up any conspiracy theories :-)

It's a pebble, or something similarly stone like.

Sorry.

Damn! And I thought I'd finally gotten away from her.
