The News Minute | September 18, 2014 | 01:38 pm IST  What do you 'really' see when you look at pictures of space, say Mars or the Moon or any other celestial body? Do you see a humanoid figure on what otherwise looks like a piece of rock? Do you believe aliens exist and we have sufficient evidence to prove it, but our governments' are intentionally hiding it from the public?  Well, if yes, you are one curious cat. And the good part is, you are not alone; there are many others who have similar thoughts, views and suspicions about the world outside the Earth.  Read: Don't miss an alien and its shadow walking on moon!
