Entomologists say there’s been a big discovery on Mars, but it could be just a strange-looking stone.

Although it is widely believed that there are no extraterrestrial machines or organisms on Mars, William Romoser, an emeritus professor and entomologist at Ohio State University, annotated an image taken by NASA’s Mars rover, depicting a rock in a insect-like shape. In a research press release released Tuesday, it was directly titled “Photos reveal evidence of life on Mars.”

Of course, William Romoser’s study lacks formality compared to peer-reviewed papers published in the journal Science. But his bold claim reflects the assumption that “insect-like reptiles may have existed on Mars”.

For a long time, some of our brain-holes have been interested in strange rocks found on Mars, so we’re not surprised by William Romoser’s “brainstorm.”

(The Martian “fossil” has inspired many people to think)

In this photo taken by NASA’s Mars rover, for example, someone imagines a play between a “snake predator” and an insect-like prey.

Given that nature’s “ghosts” can always carve out strange landscapes, we’re expected to find more interesting things on Mars in the future.
