Congress wants NASA to send astronauts to Mars, and Elon Musk insists he's going to help colonize the red planet, but several UFO aficionados insist there's already life on the alien world.
Then again, it could all be a giant cover-up orchestrated by NASA as an excuse to keep spending federal money or keep people distracted from the economy.
The latest round of conspiracy theories come from so-called Rover deniers who argue NASA never the Earth in the first place. They point to a snake-like rock formation pictured in the latest round of Mars Rover photos as proof of their argument, as the conspiracy theorist group SecureTeam notes on Youtube.
"I'll give you a hint, there is no rover on Mars. These photos are taken in the desert. Likely in Nevada where area 54 is located."
