The Independent also has a statement, which sounds more believable than alien life. The amazing rock formations are supposed to have been created by earthquakes, causing a piece of rock to break. NASA has already measured several earthquakes on the Red Planet. For example, last week the planet experienced its deadliest shock ever.

It is still not clear how the vibrations are generated, more research should clarify this.
