NASA’s “Perseverance” rover sends an image from Mars to Earth. The viewer wants to see things on him that should not exist on the Red Planet.
Pasadena – the planet Mars is currently unavailable to humans – perhaps for this reason it inspires many and stimulates the imagination. What people on the Red Planet are interpreting can be seen over and over again when new images of NASA’s Curiosity rover, or “Perseverance”, are released. Sometimes there is talk of a “strange building” on Mars, and sometimes people who have seen a picture of Mars wonder if a rainbow can be seen on it.
One thing is for sure: there are no limits to the imagination when it comes to images of the Red Planet, as evidenced by the image taken by NASA already in August 2021. Published as “Picture of the Day in Astronomy” she has. The image reminds him of “partially buried skeletons,” Twitter user @nickstew_art writes and continues, “It’s the way the winds have stripped the surface to expose the layers of rock below. It’s really a cemetery planet.”
NASA’s ‘Perseverance’ rover sends back a strange picture from Mars: Are there any skeletons visible on it?
According to NASA, the image was taken by the “Perseverance” rover on Mars on its 180th day on Mars (August 22, 2021). A large stone can be seen in the center of the image, which the researchers dubbed “Rochet”. The plan is for the rover to examine the stone with its two-meter-long robotic arm. If it has the right consistency, a rock sample will be taken, as was said in August.
It actually happened in September: the Perseverance rover drilled two holes in the stone and sent several selfies to Earth with a “Rochette”. The rock samples must also reach the ground at some point. It is currently planned that a future Mars mission will transport soil samples collected by the “perseverant” rover and prepare to return to Earth.
NASA rover takes pictures of things that can’t be found there on Mars
NASA’s rovers keep taking pictures of things on Mars that shouldn’t exist on the Red Planet — and they don’t, either. In fact, the human brain likes to play tricks when looking at images taken from Mars. A “female figure” has already been discovered in the rock of Mars, a “floating spoon” or “pyramid”.

The phenomenon at play here is called pareidolia and ensures that people believe they are learning about known things in the unknown: for example, a woman dancing on the strange planet Mars. This phenomenon, a kind of “auto-completion” in the brain, also occurs on Earth – for example when you see a face on the moon or recognize terrestrial objects in cloud formations.
Photo suggests there are bones on Mars – NASA shows what can really be seen
The image of Mars is particularly persistent and is circulated on the Internet over and over again: the image is supposed to show a “human bone” on the surface of Mars. As explained by NASA at the time, the image was taken in 2014 and taken by the Curiosity rover.
“This Mars stone can look like a femur, but team members believe the shape was created by erosion – either from wind or water,” That’s what NASA says. The Red Planet may never have been able to support organisms more complex than microbes, which is why large fossils are unlikely.
In fact, NASA’s Curiosity and Perseverance rover is on Mars to see if the Red Planet once harbored life and if there are still traces of it today. Perseverance recently caused quite a stir with a very special discovery of Mars. (tab)
