NASA Mars Mission: No Little Green Men -- Yet

NASA debunks rumors of new evidence of life on Mars, but its Curiosity rover continues to make many smaller discoveries. Some of NASA's latest images raise interesting questions.

Curiosity has found evidence of an ancient, flowing stream in several places, including this rock outcropping. The exposed bedrock is comprised of fragments that are cemented together. Scientists theorize that the bedrock was broken up at some point in the past, possibly by falling meteorites. The rounded shape of the gravel indicates it was transported by water and, because of its size, not by wind. Credit: NASA

re: NASA Mars Mission: No Little Green Men -- Yet
OK, lets say that no little green men currently exist on Mars. The photo of Curiosity as headlined in Google News begs a question that i'm curtain NASA has a sterling answer for. Allowing that only one rover set down as Curiosity landed and no Astronauts, just who or what took the picture of Curiosity. The photo shows all of Curiosity's appendages in place and there are no apparent arms or poles or strings or anything else sticking out to hold the camera that took this photo. Hmmm!
