Investigators are hailing a major coup in the race to find proof of extra-terrestrial life after the ‘miniature Martian’ was spotted in NASA images of Mars beamed back to Earth from their Curiosity Rover, a four-wheeled probe currently exploring the planet’s surface, according to an Express report.
