What is the red planet is one of the biggest unknowns that still remains to be solved. Through probes and ships, scientists were able to get an idea of what is happening on Mars, although the images also added to the mystery, since they recorded from animals, gold, bones to women and strange lights.
So what are the mysterious objects found on Mars? We can see some in this list of images taken by satellites and ships that he published Gizmodo:
In 1976, NASA’s Viking 1 spacecraft captured in the Cydonia region a “large rock formation that resembles a human head formed by shadows that give the illusion of eyes, nose and mouth”, according to NASA.
Many believe that it is a monument of a Martian civilization. It is 1.5 meters high and the logical explanation is that it is a hill.
The image was taken by the NASA Curiosity rover and if it is not a spoon it is a rock with its shape. In each person is the pleasure of choosing which of the two options is the logic.
In 2016 Curiosity took a picture of one of the planet’s craters, the Waypoint Kimberley. But immediately something strange came up. A strange light was visible in the distance. Many believed it to be from the Martian civilization. Others say the light was produced by a cosmic ray that created a visual effect in the photograph.
Curiosity found this shiny rock in November 2018. In the mountainous area of Vera Rubin. Scientists say it is a nickel-iron meteorite. The Curiosity had already photographed a large metallic meteorite in 2015 and a small one similar to the one that looks like gold in 2016.
In 2004, NASA’s Opportunity rover explored an area in Meridiani Planum where the surface was covered in gray stones exactly like blueberries.
Steve Squyres, a member of the Mars Exploration Team, said the balls grew to 60 centimeters in diameter.
In this 2020, the discussion continues among NASA scientists. They believe that they are hematite stones formed from water or spheres produced by meteorite impacts or balls that were formed from calcite minerals.
There are not many options. Or it is the bone of a human thigh or a stone.
On September 28, 2012, Curiosity photographed a group of dark rocks called Rocknest. But they immediately noticed a Martian squirrel. The “lighter colored upper and lower eyelids, nose and cheek areas, ear, foreleg and stomach” clearly visible. Those who disbelieve everything say it is a stone.
Curiosity found an apparent plastic wrap. NASA later said that it was indeed that, but that it came from Curiosity itself. The wrapping of a cable that probably came loose during landing. In 2018, he photographed another plastic-like object.
A photo taken by Opportunity in 2010 in the Concepcion crater showed an ancient Mesopotamian sculpture of the Neo-Assyrian god Nabu.
The NASA rover Spirit captured the image of this woman inside the Gusev Crater on September 5, 2007. The explanation was immediately “it is a rock”. Is it a rock or a woman? Another woman was photographed by Curiosity in 2015.
