There is an increasing number of people who believe that NASA’s rovers never left the Earth in the first place, and the pictures they are allegedly sending back from Mars are taken in remote areas of our planet.
But if NASA’s rovers are not on Mars, then where exactly are they?
First of all, evidence suggests that the pictures that we see on NASA’s website are not even taken by the Curiosity and Opportunity rovers.
It is very possible that by now, both rovers are stored in a hangar, somewhere at NASA’s JPL headquarters, and have been replaced by their smaller and more practical baby brothers.
Sure, if needed, they can always be taken out for a spin, but other than that, the smaller rovers are more convenient to work with.
One of the known locations where NASA is playing around with these small rovers is Devon Island, Canada.
(It’s worth noting that Devon Islandis “the largest uninhabited island on Earth,” which seems like a pretty good location for a fake Martian photo shoot).
