A Bear on Mars?


The Jet Propulsion Laboratory at NASA posted a fun photo earlier this year. Sure looks like a bear. On the planet Mars. Their explanation? There’s a hill with a V-shaped collapse structure (the nose), two craters (the eyes), and a circular fracture pattern (the head). The circular fracture pattern might be due to the settling of a deposit over a buried impact crater. Maybe the nose is a volcanic or mud vent and the deposit could be lava or mud flows? Or it else it could be a bear, on Mars.
