Oh, I almost forgot: Tusken Raider spotted on Mars


Is there life on Mars? Yes, says the Spirit rover. Here’s a photo it snapped last November. It appears to either be an intergalactic Sasquatch, a Tusken Raider, a really tan naked guy, or some sort of rock statue near the base of what’s known as Tsiolkovski Ridge. My guess is that there’s probably an underground Whole Foods in the base of that cliff and this fella’s going to get a Jamba Juice before The Hills starts.

There’s a gargantuan TIFF file (133.4 MB) over on NASA’s website if you’d like to zoom in really closely.
