Scientist Files ‘ET Lawsuit’ Against NASA

The Mars exploration rover, Opportunity, captured an image of a rock, dubbed "Pinnacle Island," on Martian Calendar date sol 3540 (Jan. 8). However, when researchers compared this image with another on the same terrain - captured 12 days earlier (sol 3528) - the rock was nowhere to be seen.

Now you see it …

Now you don’t …

OMG, THERE’S LIFE ON MARS! … claims astrobiologist Dr. Rhawn Joseph in a lawsuit filed earlier this week. He is suing NASA to compel the space agency to take a closer look. Specifically, the petition calls on NASA to "closely photograph and thoroughly scientifically examine and investigate a putative biological organism."

I can think of other rocks that should be examined too … like this one:

OMG, DID YOU SEE THAT!  The rock made a left turn …

A herd of grazing rocks …

How sweet!  For the love of lava ...


  1. If I were a rock who lived on Mars, and I knew anything at all about the third planet from the sun, I would move to a hidden, undiscoverable cave until Opportunity departed.

  2. That 'rock' looks like a Big Mac wrapper: it just drifted off in the Marian breeze. On the other hand, being retired going on 10 years, and the trifocals a bit out of adjustment....

    1. A woman orders a White Martian from the bartender.
      On the rocks,” he asks?
      "Aren't they all,” she replies!

  3. Holmes! What kind of rock is this?
    Sedimentary, my dear Watson.

    Anyone know any jokes about sodium deposits?

    Why did the geologist take his girlfriend to the quarry?
    He wanted to get a little boulder.

    Geologists will date anything.

    Have a gneiss day.

  4. Hey (O)CT(O)! Everyone knows that you rock! And shale we admit that you have the milk of human kindness by the quartz in every vein.

    Basalt there is, and there ain't no more.

  5. Look closely and you'll see some sort of indentation or mark where the "rock" was. Now speaking of ice. . .

    Could have been dry ice too which leaves no residue or liquid.

    1. Maybe the rock was trying to reduce its carbon footprint.

  6. Nice to see you are now like the National Enquirer.
