Stone Hut on Mars — New Image From Rover Causing Mass Speculation

Well, in one respect, it is absolutely amazing that these rovers operating millions of miles from the Earth are routinely beaming us back images of another planet and true, real discoveries.

In another respect, it can get a little tiring as every image is endlessly scrutinized and anything that might even remotely look like it is “manmade” or otherwise not of natural origin is tossed around in conspiracy circles.  The latest of those is the stone hut.  Let’s start with the images in question:

It is an interesting formation for sure.  The reason many believe it is a stone hut is because, well, it looks like one.  If you are wondering exactly what they mean by a stone hut, have a look at a medieval-era one here on Earth:

So, what do you think?  Another example of life on Mars at some point in the past that NASA doesn’t want us to know about?  Or just erosion and nature at work in a place that can’t help but trigger a little bit of everyone’s imaginations?
