Martian Chronicled - Photo of "man" on Mars?
Fox ^ | 1=23-08 | Edcoil

Posted on 01/23/2008 9:26:56 AM PST by edcoil

s it Bigfoot? A Tusken Raider from the first "Star Wars" movie? Or just a rock?

British newspapers went crazy Wednesday morning about an image from Mars that appears to show a humanoid figure descending a shallow hillside.

The "alien" is actually a blurry detail in a huge panoramic photograph snapped on the edge of Mars' Gusev crater by NASA's Spirit rover in early November, and posted on NASA's Web site on Jan. 2.

This was predicted a long time ago by Blondie

And you get in your car and you drive real far
And you drive all night and then you see a light
And it comes right down and lands on the ground
And out comes a man from Mars
And you try to run but he’s got a gun
And he shoots you dead and he eats your head
And then you’re in the man from Mars
You go out at night, eatin’ cars
You eat Cadillacs, Lincolns too
Mercuries and Subarus
And you don’t stop, you keep on eatin’ cars
Then, when there’s no more cars
You go out at night and eat up bars where the people meet
Face to face, dance cheek to cheek
One to one, man to man
Dance toe to toe
Don’t move too slow, ‘cause the man from Mars
Is through with cars, he’s eatin’ bars
Yeah, wall to wall, door to door, hall to hall
He’s gonna eat ‘em all
Rapture, be pure
Take a tour, through the sewer
Don’t strain your brain, paint a train
You’ll be singin’ in the rain
I said don’t stop, do punk rock

I'm sure most of you Earthlings are surprised by this photo.

Looks like a Talosian on vacation to me.

Since the previous threads we have learned that the figure is three inches tall and that is a sorry showing for a respectable skunk ape.

Well Mars just can’t let poor Mercury have the spotlight! Last week there were all kinds of Disney cartoon characters found and identified on Mercury.

Perhaps the average Martian is two inches tall.

Three inches tall, you say?

Just confirms that it's Dennis Kucinich on a campaign fund-raising trip.

No gaffi stick or Tusken cycler. Definately not a Tusken Raider.

I’d like to see the Mars Rover go up within 30 feet of the thing before I discount this totally. For some reason...its a odd-rock formation around the whole thing...which doesn’t match up entirely. I’d like to discount this entirely....but something says we need a closer peek at this. The Rover is running on our dime anyway...and I doubt it takes more than 24 hours for the thing to drive over to the spot and let us have a good shot of the rock (hopefully). If its not a rock...then 2008 will be a very painful year for some folks in adjusting to a new reality.

Given that the Rover is already well past its expected lifetime, any time/distance on that thing is considered pretty rare and valuable.

I doubt they’re gonna waste a trip that has speculative scientific value.

Besides, the mystery can only help support future remote and manned missions to look for “faces” and “people” on Mars.
