Life found on Mars? No, just kidding... for now.

But aren't these kids cute? Their dad is Reddit user "tron1977," and he posted this picture, which was taken during a trip to NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab, to the social news site yesterday, where it received near-universal accolades and up-votes.

As you might guess, there were not a few allusions to the Elton John song "Rocket Man," which includes the appropriate verse, "Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids."
