NASA shares photo of ‘pyramid-like formation’

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A picture NASA posted online has people questioning if Mars was once inhabited by an ancient civilization.

NASA said the Curiosity Rover discovered a “pyramid-like formation.”pyramid 1

Jim Bell, a member of NASA’s Mars Rover Exploration team, said it’s unlikely the object is man or alien made.

Bell said Mother Nature most likely played a part. But, others who saw the picture jumped to the conclusion the object is man or alien made.

A person on YouTube created a video addressing the photo. In the video, a robot is the commentator and said the photo is open to debate, but it suggests the object was created by intelligent life.

He said it’s not uncommon for a natural rock formation to appear as recognizable objects.

How do you think the “pyramid-like formation” appeared on Mars? provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
