The picture above was one of the many released by NASA taken by the Mars Rover, but on Mars desolate landscape this little oddity appeared, leading to many conspiracy theories that it my be some sort of bug or insect… or rabbit. What do you guys think?
Here’s what Nasa have to say:
What Is It?
Like a rabbit in a hat, the identity of an oddity that looks like “bunny ears” in a picture from Mars has eluded the science and engineering teams. The public, also fascinated with the mysterious object, has asked in a slew of e-mails: What is it?
It is a yellowish object measuring about 4 to 5 centimeters (about 2 inches) long that made its debut when Opportunity’s eyes welcomed Earth to a new neighborhood on Mars in her mission success panoramic image. Meridiani Planum is a landscape unlike any other stop on our decades-long tour of the red planet. Still, it wasn’t the conspicuous bedrock outcropping near the horizon that initially fascinated many people. It was the “bunny ears.”
Hmmmm, it may just be a bit of junk on the surface left by the Rover, it could be a rock of some sort, or a trick of the light, but it DOES look like a little critter, doesn’t it? We can almost imagine those are little feet running along the surface….
