Zooming in on Mars "man"
Pictures of Big Foot, the Loch Ness monster, and the Face on Mars may have new company. A blowup section of an image from the Mars rover Spirit shows what looks like a person perched atop a rock on Mars. The image, shown here, was grabbed from panoramic images taken by Spirit November 6-9, 2007.
January 25 update: In an e-mail, a NASA spokesman said that the "man" on Mars is actually "a 2-inch sedimentary rock that has been eroded by the wind."
