NASA’S CURIOSITY ROVER SPOTS A ‘MOUSE’ ON MARS!

Are there really rodents on the red 


planet?This mouse-shaped shadow was caught on camera by a NASA robot…

Check it out NG Kids fans – it looks like we might have found a red planet rodent!


Scientists have long questioned whether there is life on Mars, and by the looks of these latest pictures, there very well might be…
NASA’s Curiosity Rover (a robot exploring the landscape on planet Mars), seems to have spotted something rather unusual among the usually uninhabited and rocky Martian landscape.
A UFO you might think? A three-headed fish, even? Nope, the pictures show what seems to be a small, fluffy mouse – just hanging out on Mars.
While there’s no official word from NASA about the Martian mouse, amateur astronomer Joe White posted the pictures on his YouTube channel, saying he thinks he’s spotted a mouse in the Curiosity Rover’s recent footage.

He wrote alongside the video: “A possible very large mouse or other rodent on Mars in Gale Crater – sitting on a ridge, plain as day. It is probably an optical illusion but seems to have big ears, nose and eyes. It resembles a very large mouse or jerboa in appearance.”
But hold on to your hats space lovers, because it looks as though the little critter might just be a figure of our imaginations, as many people believe the shadowy image to simply show a mouse-shaped rock.
The Curiosity Rover touched down on Mars on 6th August 2012 and has been on a special space mission to explore the red planet ever since. Scientists are using the car-sized robot to study the Gale Crater, an old meteor site on Mars!
For years scientists believed there was no chance of finding life on Mars, due to its thin atmosphere and freezing winter temperatures – which can be as cold as minus 130°C! But in September 2015 scientists announced they had found salt water on the planet’s surface, leading them to think there could be life on Mars – just probably not in the shape of a mouse!

  1. What I've learned:
    I have learned that NASA may have discovered a mouse on mars. This is extraordinary because we have learned in class that life can not exist on mars, yet we are looking at a photo from the mars rover which shows what looks like a mouse.

  3. I have learned that amateur astronomer Joe White posted a picture of a mouse on Mars but there is no word from the NASA. Everybody thinks that there is no life on Mars however the NASA announced that they found salty water on Mars leading them to think that there could be a life on Mars .

  15. I have learnt that Mars could soon be filled with rodents but it also tells us that life is possible. How the mouse got there is now a mystery to everyone.

  17. What I've learned:
    I've learned that NASA has caught a picture of a mouse on Mars; a planet that is said to be lifeless. It's hard to believe that the mouse is not a rock just shaped like one due to that fact.

  18. I've learnt that they say that there is no form of life in the red planet but a robot in Mars has taken a photo of a mouse or something that looks like a mouse: hallucination or imagination. Aslo they have found salt water! Don't get too keen what pictures the robot takes. But still I don't believe it is a mouse because they haven't studied it and they are not sure.

  19. Its amazing how people thought that there were no life on mars but the thing that is weird about that mouse is that stay alive with no air.

  20. Its so cool!!!! how a mouse is walking on Mars wonder how it got there???? I wonder how long it was breathing for??

    ReplyDelete
  21. Where would the oxygen be coming from. Because every living thing needs to have oxygen

    ReplyDelete
  22. What I've learned:
    So far I have learned that NASA has may have recently found a mouse on Mars it may have look like a mouse but they're not sure it might just be a shaped mouse stone. How could a mouse breath without oxygen?

  29. What I've learned is there might be life on Mars, this is pretty awesome there might be some habitat underground and that Mars can go very cold up to -130 C and there's salt water on Mars.
