Nasa's new orbiter at Mars has taken a spectacular picture of the Opportunity rover sitting on a crater's rim.

My newspaper showed the crater but didn't point out the little car. I saw two specks there. I forgot its length but it should have been about 1/1000 to 1/500 as long as the crater is wide.

This photo composite shows an aerial view of FedEx Field in Landover, Md., home of the Washington Redskins, superimposed on Mars' Victoria Crater to give a sense of the crater's scale.

Well thats it Walla, ET life has been confirmed.

The Aliens built a Football Stadium on Mars.

In fact it looks so funny you should post it in a funny picture
thread in the cafe. It almost looks Real.

{edit}I just went in and posted it in the thread Extratrestrial life discovered.
It fits in well in the funny context of the thread!
