Mysterious Images Emerge From Mars

Ground controllers at NASA observed some unexplainable images
which prompted the question: could there be intelligent life on

The pictures sent from the Phoenix Lander depicted images of
strange phenomena, including a distant white entity unlike
anything else on the red planet's surface. Dismissive scientists
believe it to be simply another large rock, but others aren't so
quick to discount all possibilities.

"We'll take a closer look at it," said Peter Smith of the
University of Arizona.

NASA is prepared for anything, officials said. The new Mars
lander is equipped with the ability to communicate with
extraterrestrials. Attached to the probe are computer disks that
contain messages from Earth, including songs, pictures and

The disks can be seen in some of the images sent back by the
space probe.

Phoenix's claw is now poised to dig into the icy dust. It is 30
degrees below zero at the landing site, which is near the
planet's north pole. NASA is trying to determine whether ice
below the surface has ever been liquid water.

"That would be a major discovery," Smith said.

The theory is that Mars was once warmer, and that the ice on the
north pole was once water. The now-frozen liquid could have
possibly preserved organic molecules, which are the building
blocks of life.

"We're not roving over the surface, we're digging into the
surface," Smith said. "That's where the science discoveries are
likely to be made."

The digging is slated to begin in about one week, NASA officials

Officials said the Phoenix Lander should be able to operate for
about three months. Afterward, Mars will become so cold that the
air will freeze, and the probe will be locked inside solid
carbon dioxide.
