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's robotic arm dug up five scoops of dirt, creating the "bite marks" that are visible in this image. The first scoop was collected on Oct. 7 and the last one two days later. The first two samples were used to "scrub" the inside of the chambers of the robotic arm's sample-handling mechanism, while the remaining scoops were analyzed by the rover's Chemistry and Mineralogy instrument. There had been some speculation that these soil samples had resulted in a discovery of great scientific significance, but NASA says the rumors are false. 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!
