An image recently captured by NASA's Curiosity rover quickly went viral on social media, and many people thought it was the home of aliens, others thought it was a time tunnel created by aliens, and more, but none of that is true.

However this strange door is not believed by scientists to be an extraterrestrial sign, saying that if we look more closely at the image we see that it is just something made up of normal geological processes, Professor Sanjeev Gupta of Imperial College London told The Daily Telegraph.

It can be seen that inside this formation there is a crack as well as a fracture in the rock, which explains that it is as normal as possible and such geological processes are also found on Earth.

And that could have formed hundreds of millions of years ago.

"The crack is a fracture and they are abundant on Mars and Earth - no need for marsquakes to produce them," said Professor Gupta, who has worked on the Curiosity mission with NASA.

"There is nothing at all strange in the image - these are just normal geological processes."

"The team's scientists underlined just how small it is," said NASA, referring that the image is very zoomed, so it can be much smaller than we see.

"There are linear fractures throughout this outcrop, and this is a location where several linear fractures happen to intersect," scientists concluded.
