Nasa Mars Rover Accidentally Draws Penis On Red Planet

Google+ reshared post

So, for all who are asking whether I "drew" the now-infamous "Mars penis" — the answer is, maybe. I no longer have access to the data I’d need to answer that question definitively, but the image is from a mosaic taken around sol A-58, making me one of the two very likely candidates.

I sure as hell hope I did, though. Because that’s hilarious. Needless to say, it wouldn’t have been on purpose. But it’s still hilarious.

Some of the raw images from that mosaic are here: http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/gallery/all/spirit_p058.html

(Someone who, like Poe’s raven, shall remain nameless here forevermore, for his or her own protection — someone who does still have access to the data in question — says he or she is pretty sure I did it. Thanks, Raven!)

(Update: further confirmation from the inside, thanks to +Fred Calef III. I was apparently not the primary author of the drive sequence, but I did contribute to its development. I’m going to claim that this was my contribution until proven otherwise. 😉
