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.”

The full copy of Joseph’s suit is embedded below, for your enjoyment:

  • Normally I find the lawsuits here to be frivolous and the reporting to be solid. However, this article states: ““Self-described scientist” Rhawn Joseph”.

    In the court document under Petitioners Standing you will find: “Petitioner, Rhawn Joseph, Ph.D., is a scientist and astrobiologist who has published major scientific discoveries in prestigious scientific journals beginning in the late 1970s”

    From my non-scientific position I don’t see justification of this lawsuit, but a poor attempt to cast doubt on someone by discrediting their position is poor taste. Obviously he is not “Self-described” only, some educational institution conferred a doctorate on him, and he is apparently well published and therefore established in the scientific community.

    Having said that he is in a better position than I to judge what is or is not a satisfactory investigation into this matter.

  • Then, perhaps, is there fossils or life elsewhere? But, isn’t the emergence and maintenance of life a process of radical contingency? That is, is a unique and unrepeatable past totally necessary? Or does life emerge through space like mushrooms when some conditions are present? So, how many conditions are necessary: three, four, trillions, infinite? Only one, water or any sort of God? Is God the word that means infinite conditions, absolute necessity? Anyway, how did the life that emerge in a given conditions resist when switching to a different moment? How does life resist time itself, the effects of entropy? But, is it possible for human beings to recognise a simpler life than their own brain only? On the other hand, beyond likeness, is it possible to recognise a complex life than their brain, is this the extra-terrestrial life that some people are searching unsuccessfully? However, is there an origin of life or would it be as finding a cut in the material history of the universe, an infinite void that human language patches now? Along these lines, there is a peculiar book, a short preview in http://goo.gl/rfVqw6 Just another suggestion, far away from dogmas or axioms.
