No one expects to lose much sleep over it but, for the record, NASA has been sued by three men from Yemen for invading Mars. The three say they own the red planet, and claim they have documents to prove it.
We inherited the planet from our ancestors 3,000 years ago, they told the weekly Arabic-language newspaper Al-Thawri, which published the report Thursday. Adam Ismail, Mustafa Khalil and Abdullah al-Umari filed the lawsuit in San’a, Yemen, and presented documents to the country’s prosecutor general which they say proves their claim. There was no word on whether they had paid the appropriate inheritance taxes.
