What always fascinates me about these threads is the level of psychological denial involved in saying "I see nothing artificial".
Straight lines and a full circle, but still they say "nothing to see here".

First of all, I'm posting anonymously because I don't plan to frequent these forums and don't care to register. I'm not hiding behind a veil of anonymity, I'm just lazy. Second, you people either need medication or a more productive hobby. Yes, I believe there's other life in the universe. No, it's probably not on mars, or even in this solar system (at least not intelligent life anyway). Taking every anomalous photograph and deciding it was built by sentient lifeforms serves only to make people think you are crazy.
The entire idea of an human made structure on mars is patently preposterous, even more so when you start claiming it was built in the 50s or so (I saw at least one post suggesting it was). The limitations of technology are pretty hard evidence to the contrary. Are you suggesting that the government (or some other force at work, I'm unfamiliar with these delusions) has suppressed advanced computer technology for 50+ years? Or perhaps you're suggesting interplanetary travel without computer assistance? A trajectory that's off course by an arcsecond could miss Mars by millions of kilometers. They also would have had to launch dozens of rockets without being noticed, back when such things were alien to the general populace and would be massively conspicuous. I guess nobody noticed stockpiles of rocket fuel, launch platforms or factories required to build everything required for such a project. Then when they got to Mars, I guess they set up a mining and refinery plant with only the hugely limited resources afforded by what they could carry, and not only built the structures on mars, but produced the raw materials necessary to do so as well. Oh, and being at the equator, they're also magically conjuring up drinking water and air. Never mind that it would take a small army to accomplish this, along with hundreds, or even thousands, of launches from earth.
What about the sheer number of people that would have been involved with such a project. It took literally hundreds of thousands of people for the Apollo missions, and that's just the moon. Do you really think that somebody managed to cover up that many people? What, did they just kill them all? Do you think hundreds of thousands of people are going to keep quiet about this kind of thing? There's not one shred of evidence for any of this except for some odd pictures, and those only qualify as evidence of your delusions.
I'm sure you get Occam's Razor thrown at you all the time, but I've never seen a more appropriate time to do so. Massive conspiracy dating back half a century involving interplanetary space travel without the assistance of advanced digital computers without a single credible information leak from any of hundreds of thousands of people ad no witnesses of which the goal was to build structures on Mars for apparent human habitation by either transporting massive quantities of raw materials from earth or setting up a mining and refinery process on mars prior to a habitat being constructed thousands of miles from any known water source on Mars (I could keep going but this is getting out of hand).... Or, you're seeing shapes in the clouds.
Schizophrenia at its finest.
