I can't tell you how furious it will make me if the continue to deny that life existed there after so blatant of a coverup.

Talk about misleading! You would think by looking at that image that the multi-fingered plant looking thing was what they found on mars.

Indeed, the large photo is a chrinoid fossil from Earth. I looked for the smaller inset photo on the NASA website and didn't find it either, but it was not an exhaustive search.
