The photos in this news, taken from the official NASA website, were taken on May 7 by the Curiosity rover and appear to show a door on Mars that looks like an entrance to a shelter dug into a hillside on Mars.
The red planet has accustomed us to mysterious anomalies in its photographs, from pyramids and domes to stones with “eyes”. Now, some more have emerged that soon went viral for showing what looks like an entrance or door with alleged artificial features.
Below we make them available to you—along with links to download them in high quality from the NASA website—for you to analyze and draw your own conclusions.

The truth, however, is that the angles that the structure presents give rise to speculation about a certain artificiality or a very capricious Martian nature with right angles.
