'Human woman' turns up in Mars rover image

Posted on Sunday, 9 August, 2015 | Comment icon 42 comments

Eagle-eyed anomaly hunters have spotted something that looks like a human figure on the surface of Mars.
It was only last week that a photograph emerged online showing what looked like a large crab hanging out in a crevice on Mars - an anomaly that has since been attributed to pareidolia, the tendency for the brain to perceive meaningful shapes in otherwise abstract patterns.

Just as interest in the 'crab' started to die down however another anomalous object began to make headlines - this time a humanoid figure that looks uncannily like a human woman.

Unfortunately for those hoping that the photograph represents evidence of a civilization on Mars however the scale of the picture is such that the 'woman' is only around 10cm tall.

Given the sheer number of high-resolution images being returned by the Curiosity rover on a regular basis though it is likely that this won't be the last time something unusual turns up.

In this link we see that the blur looks less like a person. http://www.foxnews.c...uriosity-rover/ What is painfully obvious in the image are compression artifacts from the "amoebas" and "bright lights." To the right of the blue i a rock with a pictograph of an oryx. To the left on the ledge is Aladdin's magic lamp. Down and right of the blur is the sinking Titanic. On the right side of the gap immediately above the blue is a wormhole or a well for really tiny lilliputian martians. In front of the rock near the top of the image are 2 surfboards with a cricket on the closer surfboard. Mars is a... [More]

This crap needs to stop. Why? I mean I know it's ridiculous, but honestly, it's kind of fun. Does anyone really take it seriously?

Why? I mean I know it's ridiculous, but honestly, it's kind of fun. Does anyone really take it seriously? Exactly. Sometimes these news are just for fun. I understand that skeptics veterans are sick of this kind of news (probably because these articles are a magnet for wild claims) but hey, sometimes it's better just sit and laugh rather than take them very seriously

Whoever took this photo of me needs to take it down right now, I do not appreciate being photographed without my knowledge.

Not cool, dude! Does anyone else remember when everyone was saying that Mike Myers was a flash in the pan and the real "break out star" of WW was Dana Carvey?
