A video posted to YouTube on Oct. 5 appears to show what looks like an ancient "alien weapon" on the surface of Mars, captured by the NASA Curiosity rover on one of its recent photographic mapping and exploration jaunts around the planet. What is it?
Looking more like a "man made" object than any other anomaly found so far, the ancient Martian "gun" is unusual because of the spiraling, seemingly machine tooled arm rising from what looks like a turret in its rounded base. In fact, the author of the video, Paranormal Crucible, likens the strange object to similarly shaped anti-aircraft guns found here on Earth.
However, it appears this is the first object discovered which could indicate there was once a warlike people populating Mars, concerned with defending themselves against enemies, before the planet's biosphere succumbed to an untimely end.
If so, then Mars has been aptly named after the God of War. What do you think? Is this an ancient alien weapon? Could it be a gun? Or just a coincidental collection of rocks and debris? Please leave a comment below : )
