Was the Cydonia Region of Mars Designed by Some Sort of Intelligence?

I've created a movie/animation that's about 15 minutes long that goes through the basic premise that the Cydonia region of Mars was designed / created / carved / constructed / whatever by aliens. It focuses on Richard Hoagland's version of the claim. I'm curious as to what the ATS crowd thinks of the movie/topic.

Link to, "The Cydonia Region of Mars Explored." (embedding the video doesn't seem to work, sorry)

Sorry guys, have no idea why embedding isn't working. The link is good, but the video won't play when embedded. I've changed it to a straight YouTube link.

That video was awesome, afraid all of that work and effort won't change believers in pseudoscience though.

It was like having someone show how people get tricked out of their money at a carnival, or the masked magician who shows how to saw the bearded lady in half.

Watch it - it is demonstrating that Hoagland's claims are utter bull. And doing it quite nicely.

The video is almost completely over my head, sorry. However, when I look at the pictures of Cydonia, I see natural terrain sculpted by natural forces, that's clear enough.

Here it is (I hope).



I will watch it later.

Great work and very compelling

For me anyway, it illustrates the wonder of nature and how we, humans, can "see" things "familiar" to us in unfamiliar environments..

Great Job!

This was a very good video, which definitively shows that Hoagland's theories of the Cydonia area of Mars are a fallacy. The images he published years ago, the low res images of the area, were clearly manipulated to display what he wanted to see. The higher resolution images taken by the Mar's Reconnaissance Orbiter showed nothing but mounds and mesas in the Cydonia area. But Hoagland wouldn't cease with his ridiculous claims and further manipulated those images to show what he wanted to see.

How he was hired by NASA as a consultant is beyond my understanding. Maybe its his way of conveying BS with a technical flare that got him the position. Most likely after NASA realized what he was doing, he was let go.

I always felt like drawing random angles on map and counting random numerous angle can pretty much create any data you would want to create in the first place.

We see what we want to see...

Great video astrostu!


Although, I still see the face on Mars and I still don't dismiss the possibility of ancient sentient life on Mars

I must say the title threw me for a bit of a loop, but then watching the video I see what you are trying to say.

Well done.

I did unfortunately , and all these angles measured by both parties were from pictures taken above of a heavily eroded windswept acid eaten sun beaten landscape.. bury a city for a billion years and try the same trick...laughable

I really want to see artificial structures on Mars. That would be every space enthusiast's dream. But I'm not seeing them.

@funbox

Could there have been any cities a billion years ago? Life on Earth was still in primitive stages, and if any life existed on Mars, it would have been primitive too. Or do you mean... aliens?

Anyhoo, even the most ancient and eroded ruins on Earth look nothing like the supposed structures on Mars, or the Moon.

It's compelling stuff. I think there really is a face on Mars there, though eroded quite a bit. There isn't definitive proof one way or the other though. I love the skeptics that say, no face, it's been debunked. yeah, not really... open your eyes sheep. Some of the other stuff there has intriguing possibilities. Even if it's not man made the geological anomalies there are amazing. It's just an amazing place all around. We should send a probe there pronto! We need better, more Hi rez pics and a rover there for starters.

The angles between edges when seen from above is what is less changed by erosion.

And, after watching the video, I agree with other members: it's an extremely well done video, I'm sure that even those that do not agree with the content agree with that.

im interested to know how the edges remain immune .. im also interested to know how they would be immune to accreation , . but lets stick with the erosion shall we
that fine grade shotblasting winds.. a conservative million years would be enough to alter any rockface and adjoining edge

maybe there's a bunch of blue-it archaeologists down there , keeping things tidy
