NASA is saying that they found a Star Trek symbol on Mars and posted a tweet about it.
🖖 Dunes, lava and wind are responsible for this curious shape on Hellas Planitia, Mars. Boldly go: https://t.co/JSLObpMq2E

The Martian desert is rich in curiosities.
And Star Trek symbolism, too. NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter — a satellite zipping around the red planet — captured a mass of ancient lava rock that looks strikingly like the Star Trek Starfleet insignia donned by the show’s galactic explorers.
“Enterprising viewers will make the discovery that these features look conspicuously like a famous logo: and you’d be right, but it’s only a coincidence,” NASA scientists said.
NASA’s planetary researchers, like they always do, had a realistic explanation for the geologic feature, calling it “a complex story of dunes, lava, and wind.”
Who the fuck cares? How is this relevant to science?
For all we know this photo could have just been generated in Adobe Photoshop.
This shit is so goofy and ridiculous it is hard to fathom. There is no reason to believe that NASA is doing any sort of legitimate scientific research. It’s also very reasonable to assume that almost everything they’re doing is a hoax designed to deceive the public.
How is it that we allegedly went to the Moon back in the 1960s and here we are 50 years later having made no substantive scientific gains in this area?
A major investigation should be launched into NASA. They seem to be wasting billions of dollars and hoaxing the public with bullshit.
