Could a “rock” that appeared on a Mars rover photograph actually be an alien life form?
NASA doesn’t think so, but one man disagrees — and has filed a lawsuit as a result.
Rhawn Joseph thinks NASA should more closely study a rock that recently appeared in front of the Mars Opportunity rover — and he’s filed a lawsuit to try to compel the agency to do just that, reports Popular Science.
Apparently, Joseph thinks the rock could be a living thing (a “putative biological organism”), and his lawsuit requests that NASA “perform a public, scientific, and statutory duty which is to closely photograph and thoroughly scientifically examine and investigate” the object.
As Popular Science’s Colin Lecher reports, NASA has identified the object as a “very special rock, with rare properties, even. But a rock.”
