Now a ‘truck’ has been spotted on Mars

By the sounds of it, budding astronauts and Total Recall fans may want to do the opposite of getting their asses to Mars.

Pictures snapped by NASA’s Mars Curiosity Rover in recent weeks have been pored over by have-a-go astronomers and zoomed in on to flag up various objects resembling everything from the Star Destroyer in Star Wars to giant alien crab monsters - and the sightings haven’t stopped there.

One eager stargazer using the YouTube account Whatsupinthesky37 has now flagged up a new object nestled between the jagged rocks on the Red Plant: a Martian truck, apparently buried next to a ‘gun barrel’ which broke off from said vehicle.

Credit where credit is due, it would appear that any all-terrain vehicle would need a similarly streamlined build, but then it could just be an oddly shaped pile of rocks. In fact it probably is an oddly shaped pile of rocks.

Or is that what the Martians want you to think?
