Is That a Mouse on Mars?
Let's take a little trip to space for our next story, shall we?
A mysterious object on Mars has some folks thinking the red planet has a mouse problem. NASA’s Mars Curiosity Rover recently sent this picture home from the red planet. See that object way in the back?
Amateur astronomer Joe White enhanced the image on his Youtube page, noting that the object looks like a "possible very large mouse or other rodent".
But White also admits the object is "probably an optical illusion". The curiosity rover has spent more than three years studying mars and whether it can support life.
