Image of ‘Carved Face’ on Martian Rock Resurfaces




But is it really pareidolia ?

unexplained-mysteries

This intriguing photograph seems to show a carved rock face on the surface of Mars… or does it ?

From a giant crab to the face of Beaker from The Muppets – there have certainly been a lot of strange sightings on the surface of Mars over the years.

With its barren landscape strewn with randomly shaped boulders, rocky outcrops and other geological features, it’s perhaps not surprising that Mars is a prime location to see examples of pareidolia – the human brain’s natural tendency to see meaningful shapes in otherwise abstract patterns.

In this latest example of how easily our minds can be fooled – this image, which was captured by NASA’s Curiosity rover back in 2014 – shows what appears to be a carved face, like something that could be part of an ancient statue.

In reality, of course, it is simply a random happenstance of shapes and angles, but it’s interesting to see, once again, just how easily such things can be picked out on the surface of another world.
