Scientists have discovered soil on Mars to be similar to that found in two locations in Scotland.

The Aberdeen-based James Hutton Institute studied data on Martian minerals beamed back to Earth by Nasa's robot rover, Curiosity.

Researchers compared the information against the institute's Scottish soil dataset.

They found the Martian soil to be "strikingly similar" to basaltic soils of the isles of Skye and Mull.

And eat deep fried Mars bars?

The creation of the dish is attributed to John Davie who invented the sweet treat in 1992 in the Haven Chip Bar (now the Carron) in Stonehaven, near Aberdeen on Scotland's northeast coast.

Martian Aberdonians sounds about right.

The product has not received support from Mars, Inc who said "deep-frying one of our products would go against our commitment to promoting healthy, active lifestyles.
