Very intriguing, notice how the sand drift's seem to have blown around it, how deep this ruin goes is an interesting thought given that it appears to
be near the apex of a dune and almost as if the dune has buried the rest of the structure, the two tailing fan's of sand that lead away and down slope
are also intriguing as they suggest a sold structure that his may be the top of projecting just above that dune.
How old, if it is not buried into the dune and sitting just on top then maybe it is surprisingly recent, kind of like an arctic research facility on
mars but why there?, if it is buried in the dune then maybe very old and perhaps indicative of other structures beneath that martian sand and dust.
Personally I believe mars was destroyed deliberately though most of the planet probably suffered an earlier devestation it may have still been semi
habitable until a hydrogen bomb about the size of the empire state's building was used then a slightly smaller one at another location and my believe
is based on this.
Remember the three world's mentioned in the Mahabarata and the weapon that could destroy them, the light of ten thousand sun's and the great wind
that threw the entire army into the air and poisoned the water and the land, I believe those three world's were Venus, Earth and Mars, only the earth
survived but were we winners in a war of annihilation between the earth and these two other once habitable world's or colonies (or was the earth the
colony?) or could they have been the victim's of an outside aggressor from outside the solar system, perhaps a predator race whom only left what was
left because they believed we had been destroyed and could not recover to a level that may have potentially been seen by them as a threat and indeed
it seem's we were indeed no threat and still are not as how far have we been reduced from such a solar system spanning civilization if indeed this is
And LostBook sorry to drift a little there, that is a very intriguing design but I would assume it would be more feasible to move something akin to
the subterean drilling machine there to make underground tunnel's in the well shielded upper rock strata beneath the surface.
This igloo look's too small to be feasible for prolongued use but obviously to gain a foot hold as a temporary structure it may be ideal, even two
years on mars would cause significant muscle and bone density wastage so a much more rigorouse fitness regime than a simple excercised machine would
provide may also be necessary especially for those that wish to return to the earth in a fit enough state to be able to re-acclimatize rapidly.
I believe also there may be a potential for much thinner sheilding using EM technology's but even the ship's carrying people there will still need
much heavier shielding than the earth orbiting craft or the short duration apollo mission's ever did.
So subteranean or rather sub martian dwelling is more as they shall require in order to develope substantial facility's that will meet there actual
need's for prolongued martian existance and properly viable colonization, we do it here on earth for other reason's such as in Australia were opel
mining is lucrative but in some of the most hostile territory as far as temperatures and parched conditions' are concerned, man made caves are the
answer there but for quite different reason's, the stable and much cooler temperature being the main one.
