8 Bizarre, Unexplained Images Sent Back By The Mars Curiosity Rover

The mysteries of the universe. As time goes by, it seems as though we learn more of them every day. But for every answer than science seems to throw our way, they also chuck in a hundred questions.

We’re learning more about Mars now than ever before, all thanks to the rover NASA have landed on the Red Planet called ‘Curiosity’. Millions of images have been beamed back from Curiosity to Earth, each of which is helping to fill in some informational blanks for scientists and astronomy experts.

But a few photos have come back which are very strange indeed. Let’s start with a snap that’s made many people think there’s something fishy going on over on Mars…
