Recently, the Curiosity Rover that has been on Mars for a while has sparked sensational news of possible life on the planet. A dark shadow of a woman like figure was found in one of the images released by the Curiosity Rover. UFO watch groups all over the world have been magnifying the image further and speculating the possibility of the rover having found another alien species.

This time, the rover has made the news again because it is the third anniversary since being on the surface of Mars. However, that is not all as NASA has created a new feature for the rover that will enable it to get detailed visualizations of the planet’s surface.

This will allow users to virtually journey over the surface of Mars. Jim Green, NASA’s planetary science division director said,

“This tool has opened my eyes as to how we should first approach roaming on another world, and now the public can join in on the fun. Our robotic scientific explorers are paving the way, making great progress on the journey to Mars. Together, humans and robots will pioneer Mars and the solar system.”
