Cows on Mars????

Houston, TX - Scientists today are excited all over again. Earlier in the week they thought the Mars Curiosity Rover had discovered methane gas on the red planet. Such a discovery would have meant something very impressive. Living organisms produce methane and in particular, cows produce a LOT of methane.

Scientists at NASA earlier this week ruled out anything but trace amounts of methane. However, in a re-analysis of information received in the last 48 hours, the rover appears to have an audio file overlooked earlier.

"At first we thought it was a mistake, but now there can be no doubt," said Sam Spillane, NASA Scientist, "What we heard here in this room was a Moo. To be precise it sounded like many moos, like that of entire herd of cattle!"

The audio recording: MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

"There is but one conclusion we can make from this new evidence. Cows have beaten us to Mars!! Now they are mocking us by messing with Curiosity!!"

NASA officials have since recanted Spillane's announcement, claiming he did not have prior authorization for such an announcement and are even denying the existence of the recording.
