It looks like a doorway that leads to an underground tomb, but it is probably just sand.

A foot-high topographical feature on Mount Sharp was observed last week by NASA's rover, which has been studying Mars' surface features for more than 10 years. A photo of the area was published on NASA's public gallery page.

According to a report published today, the region was formed by ancient sand dunes that created sandstone outcroppings over time. The door is most likely fractured.

Vasavada told the outlet that the middle piece had been removed and the blocks had moved apart.

The photo was taken from the rover's mast cam, which NASA says gives the rover's images a human-scale view.

Sure, Man

Vasavada's expert opinion about the doorway isn't fooling the real truthers. Conspiracies are online and entertaining. There is a painted skull inside the doorway and an enhanced image of a little man inside. The narratives left out the moon cube and space slug, which turned out to be nothing.

We'd love to learn that there are little men on Mars, but that's probably not the case. We will get to check for ourselves in the next decade according to the company.

Boeing's attempt to compete with SpaceX is even more difficult than we thought.
