Mushrooms Growing on Mars? Rock-Like Formations on Surface May Actually Be Fungi
"Space Tiger King," as to how a scientist is dubbed, recently claimed that the odd 'puffball-like' rocks found on Mars "are actually mushrooms." A Mail Online report said, Dr. Xinli Wei, a microbiologist from the Chinese Academy of Science; Dr. Rudolph Schild, an astrophysicist from Harvard-Smithsonian; and Dr. Rhawn Gabriel Joseph, also known as the Space Tiger King, were the ones who made the claims following study of images snapped by the Curiosity rover of NASA on Mars and the orbiting craft, HiRISE.
