Scientific experts and photographic analysts at NASA have revealed that surface images received from the Mars probe Phoenix show millions of small rectangular blocks that were formed long after the birth of the Red Planet around 3.8 billion years ago.
The blocks, which measure approximately 10 cms long and weigh about 50 grams, are brown in colour, and are littered all across the Martian landscape. A sample test carried out by the probe yesterday, indicated the presence of nougat, along with glucose, milk and thick, thick chocolate.
Professor George Scoggins of the British Space Research Centre at Bourneville, Birmingham, said:
"This is an entirely unexpected discovery. There have already been enquiries from numerous gluttons who want to volunteer for any manned missions to Mars".
