Face on Mars or Rocky Hill? New Photo Reveals Truth
FOX News ^ | 7/30/2010 | FOX News

Posted on 07/30/2010 11:30:58 AM PDT by Dallas59



A new image just released by NASA confirms what the space agency has said all along: That's no face on Mars. It's just a rocky mesa.

In 1976, NASA's Viking space craft first captured the stunning picture of the area, showing what clearly looked like a face on the surface of Mars.

Conspiracy theorists went bonkers, describing the image as clear proof both that Martians existed and that NASA and the government were aware of their existence.

The new image comes from the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment camera (HiRISE) on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, a multipurpose satellite designed to explore the Red planet from orbit. In 2007, the camera captured this new picture of the eroded mesa made famous by its similarity to a human face.

The picture comparison is not illustrative of the point. They sure don’t look the same.

Two different scales ?

Two different places ?

I would say some form of plant species. But the geniuses at NASA will tell you they are crystalline forms that have been exposed by winds blowing the detritus away from them once buried in loose Martian dirt/snow.

“I wonder what these are on Mars?”

Answer: extremely large broccoli. The martians won’t eat them, say they taste horrible.

After losing the title to Evander Holyfield he was never the same. I thought he retired.

Those two photographs don’t look at all like they are the same location. None of the same topography or landmarks.

The Martians have bulldozed the image so as not to invite Earthpeople from coming. They watch CNN.

Yeah, NASA's great at before-and-after photographs. Say what you want about Hoagland (I believe him to be a genuine whistleblower), these photographs come from JPL itself.

That's because they're nutjobs unworthy of further conversation.

There is ample evidence of tampering with photo material from NASA. Hoagland worked for NASA in the imaging department (and may still be on payroll). If anyone can blow the whistle on these scum, it would be Richard Hoagland. But he is also a kook ...

I believe the bluish crescent towards the top of the new picture is the “mouth”.

Here's the acutal full HiRISE view of the face. The top of the "head" is at the 4 o'clock position:

Psycho_Bunny: I never, ever continued speaking to anyone who thought the original pic showed an actual face sculpture.

cripplecreek: That's because they're nutjobs unworthy of further conversation.

I agree with you both. Nutjobs who don't admit that it's a double, simian/lion face sculpture undermine the entire investigative process, and I won't have it. The last time I heard someone referring to it as merely "a face," why, I walked on the other side of the street.

And you can be sure I spread the word, too, so no one else would talk to them. In fact, that's the most important thing of all, in my opinion. Which is why grade school slander terms are so important, as well as very clear shunning instructions for the group.

Some things simply should not be discussed. And anyone who tries... well, we KNOW what happens to THEM, now don't we?

Yes Virginia, It really is a "Catbox"
