Maybe there is life out there!
NASA’s Mars reconnaissance orbiter discovered a very familiar symbol on Mars.
🖖 Dunes, lava and wind are responsible for this curious shape on Hellas Planitia, Mars. Boldly go: https://t.co/JSLObpMq2E

It looks to be the Starfleet insignia from “Star Trek.” Although I’d love to believe that Starfleet Command is out there, it appears this “symbol” is nothing but a footprint left by dunes.
At some point in history, a volcanic eruption spewed out lava that moved around dunes. Then wind blew the dunes away and they left footprints in the lava fields.
I don’t want to believe that at all. I’m just going to continue to believe that Captain Kirk left us a message.
William Shatner, Captain Kirk, himself is also using this symbol to pick on Star Wars, but Star Wars isn’t just going to sit there.
