Something very odd was just discovered in a photograph NASA released of the planet Mars. Is a new life form? Is it something we should be concerned about? Is it time we start training space Marines?

Before you even go there, yes the photo is authentic. The photo was released from one of the the Mars Curiosity rover and as with every NASA photo that's released to the public, it was scrutinized. This one however didn't show pyramids, ground squirrels, or ancient statues; this one shows something that is, well horrifying.

Some people think it looks like a giant spider, others a space crab...(whatever a space-crab is supposed post look like), others a geologic formation. Whatever it is, there's never been a shortage of anomalies on the red planet.

We need only go back to the Viking spacecraft and see the iconic photograph of the face in the Cydonia region of Mars.

So what do you see in this Rorschach test?
