Mars Space Station 'Discovered'; Earthlings Tune In To See It

We're just catching up to the stories about an amateur astronomer in California who claims to have spotted some sort of structure on Mars where something might be living.

Oh sure, there are doubters (also known as scientists), who say that what David Martines saw is just a digital glitch in the image.

But more than a million folks have gone on YouTube to watch Martines' video (the original version was "accidentally deleted," he says, but a copy is now posted). He says he came across the discovery via Google Mars.

Martines calls it "Biostation Alpha."

Everything on YouTube is real, right?
