Keyboard-wielding alien enthusiasts have spotted what they believe to be a cross next to the “fallen roof of a temple” on Mars.
The image was originally snapped by NASA’s Mars Curiosity Rover on January 10, 2014. The supposed cross can be seen in the middle of the image, slightly to the left, if you squint a bit.
It was first spotted by French UFO and paranormal phenomenon enthusiast Christian Mace, and later picked up by UFO Sightings Daily.
On the site, they said: “I would be [bet] big money that this is a full size cross. Near the cross there is the ledges of a beautifully carved roof that has since caved in. It has archways carved in its top and three thin layered sections.”
While the spotters are certainly keen-eyed, this is not a crucifix. The most likely explanation of the sighting is the psychological quirk called pareidolia, where humans have a tendency to pick up recognizable features – particularly faces – when there are none, a bit like what you see during the classic Rorschach “inkblot” Test.

Looks like a grave marker out in the Arizona dessert.

...mars was indeed populated and therefore could be terraformed once again to sustain life for the human race in the future.
The tiny suns would then warm up the planet and turn any frozen carbon dioxide into gas. CO2 is a potent greenhouse gas, meaning it absorbs and traps heat. The more of the gas that's in the atmosphere, the warmer the surface of Mars becomes.
