London: Mars Looks Like Naked Woman : NASA


London, Jan 23: Life on Mars? Well, bizarre images have emerged showing a mystery female figure walking down a hill on the arid planet.

The photo of what looks like a naked woman with her arm outstretched was among several taken on the red planet and sent back to Earth by NASA's Mars explorer Spirit, the 'Daily Mail' reported on Wednesday, citing an unnamed website.

Though no official confirmation has come from NASA whether the figure is an alien or an optical illusion caused by a landscape on Mars, it has set the Internet abuzz that there really is life on Mars.

As one enthusiast put it on the website, "These pictures are amazing. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw what appears to be a naked alien running around on Mars."

The news of the mystery woman on Mars came just days after a team of French scientists claimed to have discovered proof that the red planet possesses high-level dense clouds of dry ice, which scud across its orange sky.

Using data obtained by the OMEGA spectrometer on board ESA's Mars Express, the team found the existence of the ice clouds which sometimes become so dense that they throw quite dark shadows on the dusty surface of the red planet.

"This is the first time that carbon dioxide ice clouds on Mars have been imaged and identified from above. This is important because the images tell us not only about their shape, but also their size and density.

"Previously, we had to rely on indirect information. However, it is very difficult to separate the signals coming from the clouds, atmosphere and surface," according to lead scientist Franck Montmessin of the Service d'Aeronomie at University of Versailles.

    It may be illusion but it should be clear why this happened and what the result will be happen in future.

    If NASA's Mars explorer "Spirit" could track its previous path then it should be sent right back to the same place to find the same woman to confirm its evidence.

    She is not naked, she looks like she's wearing a thick green shirt and pants sitting on a cliff. And why did nobody mention the lizard wearing goggles that every other site has pointed out.

    Apparenly this is an imaginary display almost looks true to ones vision.  But why not explore it to a more realistic approach.  Also some authorised versions be spelled out.  This will be apreciated.
