This incredible and really mind blowing image come from one of my favourite area on Mars: Hellas Basin. This Amazing squared features discovered by Gary Proffitt, from www.uahirise.org... confirm how dark, strange and misterious is the Past of Mars...

This is a huge file created from my original image that I cropped from a MRO image file.
The image took over 6 hours to import, scale, convert from jp2 to png, save and upload and allows for much greater zooming of this interesting area.
.
There are strange banding effects that run diagonally throughout the area and I have
spotted that these originate from the source
file but they are slightly chaotic so must be present in the actual area itself which is very
odd indeed if this is the case.

Some theoretical evaluation of observations and speculative suggestions(see snapshots for referencing). .
In no particular order;
.
(1).....An advanced Martian life form that could of died out through environmental change and there is some evidence in the contouring of the squared area to suggest that this area was aquatic and may of been a shallow seasonal sea or flood plain that has escaped the erosion processes that have grossly altered the rest of this area.
.
(2).....A stranded alien ship that landed millions of years ago brought intelligent members of a far off race that maintained some
cultivation of a once wetter and warmer climate.
.
(3).....A complex new type of glaciation that can create cubic designs via thawing erosion though this has never happened on Earth apart from striation effects(glacial lines).
.
(4).....A Complex new type of fluvial marking
though again this is not known on Earth at this density or configuration.
.
(5).....An Alien race that used Mars as either a base or too Acquire Minerals or even the Gases from the atmosphere itself on the basis that the Planet was sterile.
.
(6).....Our own species could of visited Mars in the distant past by using time travel and left a few clues for us and although this seems impossible too us now I fully believe that all four dimensions can be travelled using technology and Sciences that we are far from conceiving.
.
I can remember investigating Einstein's theory of relativity when I was only twelve and discovering that if you travel faster than the speed of light then the equation states that you will go back in time and try testing the equation for yourselves, check the results and then ask yourselves why it is that on every recent historical event, lights and orbs have been seen in the skies including when Christopher Columbus and his crew approached the New world and also the Apollo moon landings to name but a few.

7).....There are over 10,000 files in the MOR database and this does not represent the whole surface of Mars which still has not been examined completely (approx

Sorry, but I can't. Thx

S&F - interesting...

All the more reason to increase money in the scientific realm so we can go visit these places in person and do some real investigation / exploration.

I have never heard of this area before. It looks like a city that has been buried for millennia that is being uncovered by the elements. I wonder if we are looking at a region that was manipulated in the past by an ET species / Martian species in an effort to save the planet from disaster that did not quite work out. Drilling via laser to release geologic strain / release gases into the atmosphere etc.

I always enjoy your threads Arken... nice job.

Thanks Xcathdra.
I'm with you on this.
Seems that we don't know (publicly) what really lies on Martian surface....

Looks like a dried out seabed/lake.

Looks like we might have one of those ever present monoliths in the image. Lower half / quadrant -

It also reminds me about the old version of Google Earth, where the seabed wasd covered with squares like on the Mars picture, i believe they were imaging artifacts or sonar tracks.

A small example.

I was under the impression the seabed lines were a result of the sonar (?) being used. It reflected the movement of the boat. If I remember right it was discussed when someone found the same types of lines in the Atlantic just beyond the Straights of Gibraltar, sparking a discussion on Atlantis being found.

Yeah, i know but in the old days of Google earth there was some other square like artifacts, i can't seem to find any pics of them, the ones i posted above is not the ones, and it's not the one of "Atlantis" either, they were looking a lot like the Mars pic.

Unfortunately Google earth have changed and they are not visible anymore.

Good catch!
It looks very high, in comparison with its shadow.

Cool find! Martian surface features never cease to amaze and puzzle me. But although imagination and speculation may fly high, I tend to find geological explanation more solid. The HiRISE page for this image mentions Glacial/Periglacial Processes:

Icy-soil and surface-ice deposits influence the formation of Martian landforms, much as they do on Earth. Glacial deposits form characteristic flow features that indicate thick piles of water ice in a slow viscous motion, even when they are covered by dust and soil hiding the bright ice. Periglacial landforms are features found commonly on the margins of glaciers, where icy soil plays the most important role. Incredibly regular polygonal patterns, sorted stone circles and ridges, collapse pits and scalloped scarps, and smooth ice-cored mounds, commonly dot terrestrial landscapes. They form naturally as ice in the pore space between soil grains undergoes seasonal melting freezing cycles, or thermal expansion and contraction cycles. Early images of Mars from the Viking orbiters revealed a wide array of large scale features of a potentially glacial or periglacial origin at low resolution. Mars Global Surveyor provided greater details, but many of the diagnostic shapes and textures are typically only a meter in scale. HiRISE provides us with a new window to observe these features.

That's a perfectly reasonable explanation for me.

Here's an anaglyph I made from the HiRISE stereo pair, it's not perfect but kinda works:


Hellas basin is full of weird terrain. Here's another example from ESP_023499_1420. What the hell are those?!

None of them mud cracked features look square, more oblong so I cant see why you drew that as comparison

Edit: Oh wait, did you mean the pic of the dry lakebed, if so you are right, different but still.

As i said unfortunately i don't have pic's of what i mean, the ones above was just some poor examples.

Damn i miss my old harddisk, i had it all stored on my old HD but it's dead and gone plus tons of other usefull stuff.

As long as i can't show what i mean just look away from what i posted.

Interesting find! Although roughly rectangular fissures in the terrain are not unheard of, such features should always make us take a closer look. Also, it's good to see you 'hunting' again, I'm always enjoying your threads!

I keep my fingers crossed that one of these days we're going to stumble upon something that'll even make the sceptics on here consider a different story or non-mainstream view of the martian past.

They look like the image that shows up in a horror movie just before the curious humans, dealing with something they know nothing about, accidentally releases a killer interplanetary beast the size of a small moon with a hunger for blood...


Or it could be weird shadows....

Either or a person must ask themselves....

What does God need with a starship?

I think the most likely explanation for the feature is ice , either ice deposits underground or glacial scarring but my preference is ice deposits.

The problem here is people would rather believe in any WAY OUT THERE reason than look at the information given the hi-rise image has this next to it Glacial/Periglacial Processes

Why don't you check that out before blaming Aliens!!!

While you are correct, without the way out there reasons we might as well be content on armchair space exploration. I would prefer to believe we are looking at alien ruins. Its more exciting than exploring plain old rocks. Besides the way out there mindset is what drives scientific advancement.

Just my 2 cents

It's hard for me to take someone seriously when they don't know the difference between have and of and to and too. Not you op, but what you quoted. That's just my personal reaction and it's probably a bit stubborn, but once I see something that dumb I pretty much tend to discount everything else said person had to say.

So for me on this, I basically just had the picture to go by and it looks like a natural formation to me. It is definitely interesting and I wonder how it was formed, but certainly wouldn't jump to aliens right off the bat.
