New Rover Image Capturing Beam Of Light May Prove Life Exists On Mars (Photos)

A NASA rover on Mars captured what some say appears to be a beam of artificial light radiating out from the ground, and while the source of the light is unconfirmed, many believe it could be proof of life on the red planet.

The photo was snapped last week by one of the two rovers currently cruising around the planet, and as Scott C. Waring of UFO Sightings Daily points out, the beam of light could help prove the existence of life on Mars.

"This could indicate there is intelligent life below the ground and uses light as we do," wrote Waring in his observation. "This is not a glare from the sun, nor is it an artifact of the photo process."

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

The Curiosity rover is currently exploring an area of the planet known as the Kimberley. At the Kimberley, the rover can explore rocks and the overall environment that may lead to figuring out whether there was life there in ancient times.

"This is the spot on the map we've been headed for, on a little rise that gives us a great view for context imaging of the outcrops at the Kimberley," said Melissa Rice of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena in a press release.

From the beginning, the Curiosity rover was always meant to make it to the Kimberley, which got its name from a place of the same name in Australia, and scientists hope that being there will help them figure out what past environmental conditions were like and whether or not they were ideal for life.

In the meantime, many are continuing to speculate what this beam of light could prove, if anything at all.
