Barsoom, the Face, Structures on Mars

Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter ... and
"The Lost Cities of Barsoom" ....

by Richard C. Hoagland
updated 4/7/06
The Enterprise Mission
Another close-up from the same MRO mosaic (rotated 50 degrees, clockwise -- below) demonstrates that not all "quasi-circular features" on Mars are simple "impact craters."

This remarkably preserved example exhibits organized, interior geometric detail characteristic of a massive, designed building ... surrounded by six, geometrically aligned, surviving elevated "walls" -- minus a possible roof! The massive former structure is attended by an array of additional, still partially-buried rectilinear features just outside.

An example caption from some images on the page is, "Comparison Between Known Ruins in the Deserts of Iran ... and Eerily Similar Structures Underneath the Deserts of Mars".

And the photo from Mars shows an unremarkably natural impact crater.

Edgar Rice Burroughs, Barsoom series was a favorite series of mine when I was young.
I found them at Blackmask.com as free ebooks and reread them.
It seems like Blackmask has been done for a week or more.

Captain's Blog:
Space News and

Tuesday, October 18, 2005
Somebody Tried to Kill Hurricane Wilma ... BEFORE She was Born! -- UPDATED 4:50 AM October 19th -- With apologies for my unfortunate absence from this forum in recent days, for weeks now we have been presenting (in previous "Captain's Blogs") increasingly extraordinary images, archived radar data and expert testimony, all supporting the (to some) equally extraordinary new reality:

That, despite what experts tell us, the technlogy currently exists to actually control the weather -- and specifically, nature's most destructive type of storm: the hurricane itself.

And that "someone" has been using this technology this summer "in an undeclared, all-out 'weather war' against the United States" ... with (after Katrina) disasterous results ....

I love a good Mars story. This goes right along with structures on the moon. It's a good "story" but that is all. I will believe it when the Mars Rovers drive down main street and pull into a Wal Mart.

:') Different part of Mars. Just when we all had a reasonable expectation that the indefensible "Face on Mars" crap would come to an end due to better camera resolution, more stuff to be misinterpreted and twisted to purposes shows up for the very same reason. ;')

Arthur C. Clarke Stands By His Belief in Life on Mars
by Leonard David
7 June 2001
Clarke spoke last night, June 6, via phone from his home in Sri Lanka as key speaker in the Wernher von Braun Memorial Lecture series held here at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum. Pouring over images on his home computer taken by the now-orbiting Mars Global Surveyor (MGS), Clarke said that there are signs of vegetation evident in the photos. Clarke repeated several times that he was serious about his observations, pointing out that he sees something akin to Banyan trees in some MGS photos.

There probably isn't life on Mars, and if there is or was, that life would probably have come from the Earth (rather than the hypothesis of life from Mars populating the Earth).

The Viking Labeled Release Experiment and Life on Mars
by Gilbert V. Levin
Thus, organic compounds surviving this rugged digestion were detected in the soil. They were attributed to kerogen and coal refractory to the GCMS pyrolysis. Biological possibilities were discounted although viable microorganisms have been reported (23) within anthracite coal taken from deep underground. The purpose of the intensive digestion of the Antarctic #726 was not stated. One must wonder what variety of labile organic compounds were present prior to the digestion.

Cydonia -- The Face On Mars?

Tuesday, 26 September 2006
cydonia_-_the_face_on_mars
After multiple attempts to image the Cydonia region from April 2004 until July 2006 were frustrated by altitude and atmospheric dust and haze, the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on board Mars Express finally obtained, on 22 July, a series of images that show the famous 'face' on Mars in unprecedented detail. The data were gathered during orbit 3253 over the Cydonia region, with a ground resolution of approximately 13.7 metres per pixel. Cydonia lies at approximately 40.75° North and 350.54° East. "These images of the Cydonia region on Mars are truly spectacular," said Dr Agustin Chicarro, ESA Mars Express Project Scientist. "They not only provide a completely fresh and detailed view of an area famous to fans of space myths worldwide, but also provide an impressive close-up over an area of great interest for planetary geologists, and show once more the high capability of the Mars Express camera."

Cydonia is located in the Arabia Terra region on Mars and belongs to the transition zone between the southern highlands and the northern plains of Mars. This transition is characterized by wide, debris-filled valleys and isolated remnant mounds of various shapes and sizes.

'Human face' first seen in 1976

One of these visible remnant massifs became famous as the 'Face on Mars' in an image taken on 25 July 1976 by the American Viking 1 Orbiter.

A few days later, on 31 July 1976, a NASA press release said the formation "resembles a human head." However, NASA scientists had already correctly interpreted the image as an optical illusion caused by the illumination angle of the Sun, the formation's surface morphology and the resulting shadows, giving the impression of eyes, nose and mouth.

Nonetheless, the 'Face on Mars' was the subject of widespread speculation on the possible origins and purpose of artificial structures on the Red Planet, with the face being the most talked-about formation.

The array of nearby structures has been interpreted by some space enthusiasts as artificial landscapes, such as potential pyramids and even a disintegrated city. The idea that the planet might have once been home to intelligent beings has since inspired the imagination of many Mars fans, and has been expressed in numerous, more-or-less serious, newspaper articles as well as in science-fiction literature and on many Web pages.

Despite all this, the formal scientific interpretation has never changed: the face remains a figment of human imagination in a heavily eroded surface.

It took until April 1998, and confirmation with additional data from the Mars Orbiter Camera on NASA's Mars Global Surveyor, before popular speculation waned. More data from the same orbiter in 2001 further confirmed this conclusion.

Significance for planetary geologists

While the formations aren't of alien origin, they are nevertheless of significant interest to planetary geologists.

In areas adjacent to Cydonia, gently sloping areas surrounding hills or reliefs, so-called 'debris aprons,' are frequently found. They form at the foot of such remnant mounds and probably consist of a mixture of rocky debris and ice. In Cydonia itself, such aprons are often missing in smaller massifs. The formation of debris aprons is considered to be controlled by talus formation, a sloping mass of rock debris at the base of a cliff, and landslides.

At the Mars 'face,' such characteristic landslides and an early form of debris apron formation can be seen.

'Skull-shaped' structure appears in some images

On 22 July, the HRSC finally met success during orbit 3253, and a wide area in Cydonia was imaged at the best possible resolution and in 3D.

In fact, in addition to the well-known 'face' and 'pyramids,' a naturally skull-shaped structure also appears in some of the Mars Express images.

As the famous scientist and writer Carl Sagan said: "Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere."

Notes:

The colour scenes were derived from three HRSC-colour channels. The perspective views have been calculated from the digital terrain model derived from the stereo channels.

The 3D anaglyph images (shown in the accompanying article linked at right, above) were derived from the stereo and nadir channels. Image resolution has been decreased for use on the internet.

The HRSC instrument and science team is led by Principal Investigator Prof. Dr Gerhard Neukum. The team consists of 45 co-investigators from 32 institutions and 10 nations.

The systematic processing of the HRSC image data is carried out by the German Aerospace Center (DLR), while the images shown here were processed by the PI group at the Institute for Geosciences, Freie Universitaet (Free University), Berlin, in cooperation with DLR's Institute of Planetary Research, Berlin.

A laboratory example of an electric arc scar on a clay anode surface is shown on the right. At moderate power, the electric arc rotates (top right) and raises an extensive circular blister, seen clearly in the middle right image. As the power is increased, the arc briefly stops moving and burns a small circular crater, seen as a glowing spot in the top image and at 4 o¹clock in the bottom image. The tendency for the arc to "stick" to one spot on the anode creates localized very high temperatures, sufficient to vaporize some of the anode surface to form smooth circular crater floors and steep terraced walls ­ exactly as seen in the Olympus Mons calderas...

Let's "face" it: The Cydonia Face is not pareidolia
by Tom Van Flandern
Meta Research
September 15, 2006
First, let's see what the real spacecraft image taken on this occasion looked like. (See Figure 4.) It shows the same general appearance as we saw and analyzed in the 2001 MGS spacecraft image..., except for the addition of color... That analysis concluded that the east (right on the page) side of the Face might have had excellent bilateral symmetry but for damage apparently done by an impact that left a crater in the SE corner of the mesa. We conjectured that the impact displaced the mouth feature and that a "melt flow" from the crater covered the east cheek area and flowed northward to partially fill the east eye socket.
The evidence of artificial symmetry might be there, if only there hadn't been an impact.

So, there isn't any evidence of artificial symmetry.

Note: all four graphics on the page are labelled "figure 1", but I linked to the correct one, I believe.

I like to check the Meta Research website every now and then to see what's up. TVF's Meta Research Bulletins will apparently drop from $17 a year (non-members) to zero, electronic version only.

Above are a few of the free EBOOK sites.
The one from AU has a warning for Americans that some of the books are out of copyright in Australia but not in the USA.
