Life on Mars? Amazing photos from Nasa probe reveal image of mystery figure on Red Planet
Daily Mail ^ | 22 Jan 2008 | Daily Mail

Posted on 01/22/2008 12:39:54 PM PST by BGHater

Does this photograph really prove that we are not alone in the universe?

Images beamed back from Mars would suggest so - although to sceptics, it could just be a strange rock formation.

Nasa's Mars Explorer Spirit sent back images from the surface of the Red Planet four years ago, and there was initial disappointment among scientists that they lacked any signs of life.

The 'alien' appears to be walking downhill

But space and science fiction enthusiasts are convinced there is more than meets the eye, and after years of studying the images, have found what appears to be an alien figure walking downhill.

The discovery of the life-like figure ambling across the surface of the planet is likely to further boost intrigue in our nearest neighbouring planet.

An earlier rock formation, dubbed "the face of Mars" showed what appeared to be a human head staring into the night sky.

The pictures, found on a Chinese website, are now creating a stir of excitement on the internet.

Alien life: What seems to be a human-like Martian is pictured on Mars

One keen stargazer said: "These pictures are amazing. I couldn't believe my eyes when I looked and saw what appears to be a naked alien running around on Mars."

Nasa's Mars Explorer Spirit is now starting its fourth year of exploration.

Painstaking: Space enthusiasts spent four years analysing this image, which on much closer inspection shows the 'alien'

Rovers are deployed because it has so far been too costly and difficult to achieve a manned mission to Mars, and because probes and satellites are too limited to explore the Martian surface.

The Spirit rover was launched on June 10, 2003.

With the martian temperatures there would be some serious shrinkage going on.

This was finally admitted to be a hoax. However, what I can’t figutre out how they got to MArs. BTW, is that grey-greenish scuzz some kind of lichen-like life form? We had better get one of our people on the ground pronto.

I’d be more concerned that someone can take a NASA/JPL photo, draw a red circle on it, or an arrow and a circle, and then claim copyright to it.

Just can’t get away from profiling huh?
Who are “WE” to label him an Alien? He may be a citizen. He probably considers us aliens.
Why would ‘THEY’ say he is naked? They may figure clothed people are strange. Then again, it could be a she but that opens a whole new can of worms.
There are far to many questions left unanswered here.

This photo op was distributed by the people who say the only way to go to the sun is at night because it surely is to hot during the day.

If the Rover is still sitting in the same place, take another picture and see if the "alien" moved or not.

If it didn't move, chances are it's a rock or there's a Medusa lurking on the planet somewhere!
