Astronomer Percy Lowe is back in the news with another startling claim. Last year, the fifty-four-year-old astronomer claimed that not only was Pluto still a planet but that it was inhabited by Irish sheepdogs. This year, he has made a claim about the Red Planet, Mars.
“Coupled with recent data from the Mars Orbiter about the planet’s sidereal rotation, I have concluded that the core of Mars is composed entirely of milk chocolate,” Lowe proclaimed.
“Not only that, but it’s molten,” he added, “meaning hot chocolate!”
Fellow astronomer Sir Chesley Bowen immediately called for the crackpot’s resignation from the Royal Academy of Space Watchers, but Lowe is undeterred.
“My theories will be vindicated when we finally land on Mars,” Lowe defiantly predicted, adding, “why else would they need polar caps made of marshmallows?”
Can’t really argue with that logic…
