How sure are we, that what we see is what is there?
It’s a daft question, but when you think about it, not that difficult to do.
The pictures from Mars, are they really from Mars or computations from a graphics engine?
NASA has the technology to create these images not from the Rovers, but from a computer programme that creates an artificial terrain.
The real images, if there are real images, are transmitted to a separate set of co-ordinates.
The fake ones, showing what has already been pre-programmed, has enough juicy bits in it to keep conspiracy theorists happy looking for alien
artefacts and ignoring the glaring truth.
Why would they do such a thing though?
One reason, is that if alien life is, or already has been, discovered, the images will not leak to the public and remain safely locked away, for our
own protection of course.
A second reason is money. With such a low success rate for not just getting to Mars but also landing, NASA has to justify the millions of dollars it
spends on missions to the people who fund them.
If it has done this, how would you know?
Just like the moon landings, you can’t just wander over and make sure the Rovers are there.
Check the graphics that have been released?
They have computers, programs and technology more powerful than we can estimate. We only know of the stuff they decide to release or tell us of.
They’ve already admitted to altering photographs to make them look more natural
So, ignoring the objects you’ve seen and the hours spent pouring over the pictures with a magnifying glass/zoom, how certain are you that what you
see is actually what is there?
Personally, I think the pictures are real, but I know you people love a good conspiracy.
