'Monolith' Object On Mars? You Could Call It That
Natalie Wolchover

Amateur stargazers have discovered an intriguing object jutting
out from the surface of Mars. The seemingly perfectly
rectangular, upright structure, found in NASA images of the Red
Planet, bears a striking resemblance to the monoliths planted on
Earth and the moon by aliens in the classic sci-fi film "2001: A
Space Odyssey."

The object in question was first spotted several years ago after
being photographed by the HiRISE camera onboard the Mars
Reconnaissance Orbiter, a NASA space probe; every so often, it
garners renewed interest on the Internet. But is it unnatural =97
a beacon erected by aliens for mysterious reasons, and even more
mysteriously paralleled in the imaginations of Stanley Kubrick
and Arthur C. Clarke, creators of "2001"? Or is this rock the
work of nature?

According to Jonathon Hill, a research technician and mission
planner at the Mars Space Flight Facility at Arizona State
University, who processes many of the images taken during NASA's
Mars missions, the object in question is no more than a roughly
rectangular boulder.
