This would explain the astonishing paradox of NASA's quiet backing (via the NASA-Johnston Space Center -- headquarters for Manned U. S. Mars Exploration) of De Palma's blockbuster, "Mission to Mars"!
This completely misunderstood (by most critics) yet highly revealing film, having as it's climax - after over twenty years of official obfuscation – the revelation of the reality of the intensely controversial "Face on Mars," seems contrasted with JPL's consistent rejection of this subject, the not-so-subtle beginnings of another major NASA reversal of position if not a deliberate "public conditioning process" leading ultimately to a coming NASA announcement of the reality of "alien ruins at Cydonia".
