MARS - We're so busy looking for life on Mars, maybe we should really be looking for "death." According to folks with overly active imaginations, a picture taken by the Curiosity rover captured what they think is a coffin. Yeah, you read right, a "coffin." As in that wooden box you put dead people in. Or in this case, a martian maybe?

The website "Do You Know What's Up in the Sky?" seems to think so. Some blogger basically said, "It sure does look like a little coffin to me." And now there are legit articles written about this seemingly, otherworldly casket. Heck, if it's online, then it has to be right, right?

Of course, this coffin is most likely an optical illusion. A trick of the eye that might cause some to jump to ridiculous conclusions. So, to put it bluntly; do we think there are coffins on Mars? No, mind you, we're no astronauts, but we think you'd have to be a space cadet to think there's a real casket on the red planet.
