Mystery Of Red Planet Picture

Updated:08:46, Wednesday January 23, 2008
<H2>It's the picture that ET believers have been waiting for - and the one that shows there could be life on Mars.

The image, taken by Nasa's Mars Explorer Spirit, seems to show a figure on the surface of the red planet.
However the more sceptical have decided that it is just a rock.
At first astronomers were disappointed with pictures sent back from the surface of the Red Planet by the six-wheel robot four years ago.
But a space fan spotted the figure, which was just a pinprick in the original photograph. It was blown up and posted on a website.

One stargazer writes on the site: "My first thought - it's Big Foot! If you show me another rock in another photo from Mars or Earth that naturally looks like that, I will reconsider."
Another said: "I couldn't believe my eyes when I looked and saw what appears to be a naked alien running around on Mars."
Experts say that if the planet once had surface water, there was the potential to support life.
Analysis of soil showed it contained 90% silica - a concentration only likely to have formed when water is present.
But as to whether there are likely to be aliens moving around, opinion is clearly divided.

NASA says its a rock. but damn you can see the definition of a shoulder, arm, hip. Maybe an old statue????

the issue is perspective. how far away is that image from the camera?

from the close up, it seems that the alien would be very small when i compare it to he size of the sandgrains around it.

i checked a few places and couldnt find anything on the distance.......came across this on a site tho...

According to astronomer Phil Plait of the Bad Astronomy Web site, if the image really is of a man on Mars, he's awfully small: "Talk about a tempest in a teacup!" Plait said. "The rock on Mars is actually just a few inches high and a few yards from the camera. A few million years of Martian winds sculpted it into an odd shape, which happens to look like, well, a Bigfoot! It's just our natural tendency to see familiar shapes in random objects."

if it was a rock, it'll still be there ...
