Curiosity is NASA's rover, which searches for Gale on Mars in 2012. The exhaustive mission of the Rover includes exploring the brutal Martian climate and geology and assessing whether the main life has ever flourished on Mars. The UFO-conspiracy theorists believe that NASA's Mars Curiosity Marshall has uncovered its biggest discovery since an anomaly was clearly noticed in the photograph.
In front of larger rock formations, there appears to be a visibly increased white spot.
The photo, dated June 16, has provoked the anticipated madness among alien life-conspiracy theorists who rushed to claim convincing evidence of alien life on Mars
But the reality of the anomaly is in fact far more prosaic.
Cosmic rays, the radiation of the camera lens, or just sunshine reflected from the rocks, are almost certainly responsible. ] READ MORE: Mars 2020 rover gets new wheels
Cosmic rays are formed by highly charged atomic particles, often outside our own solar system, traveling through space at almost the speed of light to produce visual impact effects.
Cosmic rays are more common on Mars than on Earth because of the thin atmosphere of the Red Planet, which does not offer an effective barrier to cosmic radiation.

rover made the headlines in 2014, that is "light from an alien hut".
The router has two mounted "cameras for navigation" on its mast, which act as a stereo pair of cameras.
Black and white images capture panoramic 3D images and each has 45 [зрително поле на видимост, предлага на инженерите на НАСА на Земята подробен преглед на терена на планетата.]
The image in question is made by the right navigator.
Unfortunately, the left camera did not look in the same direction, and pictures of the same set and time showed that they were spinning down to take some cosmic shit, showing parts of the craft over stones and dust on the ground. NASA The appearance and disappearance of the unidentified white spot must have been quick, as the pictures taken immediately before and after the same unidentified phenomenon did not appear.
Justin Mackey, the head of the NASA team who designs and manages the Curiosity camera, is not impressed by the Mars Curiosity conspiracy theory.
He said, "In the thousands of images drawn from curiosity, we see those with bright spots almost every week.
They can be used by cosmic rays or sunlight shining from rock surfaces as the most likely explanations. "
