NASA ofcourse said nothing (to supress I suppose) but released various pictures from Mars. An Australian UFO-researcher promptly made the news available to us all, via the german tabloid “Bild”.

See article here.

(BTW apart from this, do click on the arrows in the picture to see some really nice pics from Mars)

The say it’s a picture taken by the rover Spirit, but they don’t give the slightest indication of when it was taken.  Which makes it a tad hard to find the actual photo on the Mars rover image gallery (which has five and a half years’ worth of photos) and see it for ourselves without whatever cropping and editing was done for the photo on that news site.

A quick Google Image Search doesn’t pick up any other examples of that particular “skull on Mars”; I’d expect the various conspiracy websites to pick up the story soon.

So is that one going to get bombed by Christian Fundamentalists as well? I read the original Face on Mars looks so different to the original image because Christian Fundamentalists bombed it with nuclear warheads.

EDIT: I just did a Google on that and came up with this:

NASA bombs Martian Artifacts

Never mind the small problem of keeping such a thing a secret until after it was done.

Well I must admit, I could at least SEE the skull this time, as opposed to just a shitload of rocks.

I still see a shitload of rocks, but I can tell which one is referred to as a ‘skull’.

I ain’t got no body, and no-body cares for me!

I kind of hope it is real. People can hardly tolerate multiple cultures on this planet. Imagine how nutty they’ll be after finding out about life on other planets.

Hmmm.  The Daily Telegraph ran a short article in which they link to the photo on this page.  I’m not seeing anything remotely like the “skull” in that photo, though.  Does anybody else?

EDIT:  Ah, wait.  I see it.  It’s down at almost the very bottom of the photo, in the middle.  It’s tiny.  Here’s a not full-sized copy of the picture:

For those who are interested, here are twelve more photos of the same view taken by the rover.

You have to do some real searching to find something like that in among the other rocks on the wasteland.
