It appears Curiosity, the rover we sent to Mars to spy, is up to its usual tricks. In blog post #6 on April 19, 2014, I talked about the unidentified light beam the Curiosity had photographed. Justin Maki, lead person for engineering of Curiosity’s camera said, “We think it’s either a vent-hole leak or a glinty rock.”
Sure hope Curiosity sends some up close and personals of those “glinty” rocks. They’ve got to be fracking amazing.
On June 20th, or there about (there are conflicting dates reported), Curiosity sent home photos of a UFO and Maki again tried to thwart suspicions of inhabitants on Mars. “This is a hot pixel that has been around since we started using the Right Navcam,” Maki told The Huffington Post in an email. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/06/mars-curiosity-rover-ufo-pictures_n_5538801.html
