What is this mysterious, woman-shaped figure on Mars?
Here's the full image if you want some perspective.
While she/it is much smaller in this version, it's like that image of Ted Cruz and grandpa Munster: once you see it, you can't un-see it.
So whether or not this proof of alien life (LOL), we'll continue to pour over the photo and debate what that hazy figure actually is. Could be a ghost. Could be an ancient statue. Could be the trick of light upon Martian soil. Doesn't matter in the end.
As ever-hopefuls of extraterrestrial life, our hearts will go on.
