There are lots of amazing images in this week's roundup; there's the likely discovery of a massive former ocean on Mars, there's a purple squirrel, there's an incredible augmented reality project, and lots more. But we can't stop looking at--and thinking about--the noble Cyber Woman With A Corn.

In regards to the purple squirrel. A few years ago I was working next to a chemical storage facility, and there were stray cats around the place that were red or blue in colour, one was purple.
When I asked one of the locals about it he said that there had been some spills and the cats had got into the chemicals. Probably a similar situation here?
