Yet Another NASA Coverup

Well, now:

That martian "jelly doughnut" rock that shook a solar system when it appeared before the Mars rover Opportunity in a spot where days before there had just been dirt? It's going to court... kind of.

Self-described astrobiologist and author Rhawn Joseph (one of his writings is titled "Biological UFOs. Evidence for Extraterrestrial Extremophiles. Life in Space") is asking a federal judge to force NASA to more closely examine the rock that suddenly appeared on Mars rover Opportunity's field of vision earlier this month because, well... it's clearly alive.

NASA says the rock was likely flipped into the rover's field of view by its wheels as it was maneuvering around the area, but Joseph -- who filed suit this week in a Northern California US district court -- is calling poppycock.

In the writ of mandamus -- which you can see for yourself embedded below -- Joseph refers to the object as a "putative biological organism...resembling a mushroom-like fungus, a composite organism consisting of colonies of lichen and cyanobacteria, and which on Earth is known as Apothecium."

Joseph goes on to claim that the object could not have simply appeared in the later images, because it's also in the earlier images taken of the same spot. He explains that a smaller version of the fungus can be seen in the same location in the early images of the location, and that it then grew to its current breakfast-pastry-like appearance.

Anybody with a few hundred bucks to burn can file a lawsuit.  Especially idiots with extraterrestrial fungus for brains.
