There really isn't any evidence of equidistant geological formations. The sand lines were somewhat equidistant but on a microscopic scale.
The objects shown in the photo at the begining of the thread are much farther apart.
With wind and sandstorms roaming around I find it hard to believe that there would be any kind of equidistant sand dunes of that scale on Mars.

Assuming that there is or was no life on Mars we would have to assume the equidistant formations are related to the quality of the photography or the angles from which the photographs were taken.

I like this picture, is there a version where it isn't all done up in color? I don't really care for these kinds of pics, it looks like a cartoon and makes it hard to look at imo. I went to the source image but it was just the link to the pic and nothing else.
Ripples in the Ripples This image taken by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity shows the dunes that line the floor of "Endurance Crater." Small-scale ripples on top of the larger dune waves suggest that these dunes may have been active in geologically recent times. The image was taken by the rover's panoramic camera on sol 198 (Aug. 14, 2004). Image credit: NASA/JPL/Cornell

But since having Internet again these past two years I haven't found any pictures of them... maybe looking in the wrong places?

OK, i will dig into this tonight.
It is interesting because there are reports of similar things happening on the moon and Mars going back for quite some time. I believe the 1800's saw several reports of explosions on the moons, etc.
Zorgon likely has it at his fingertips. My memory is not as good as his. But I am going to dig into this tonight. It has got me interested.
"Nuclear knowledge is widespread in space. and, consequently, there is no reason to think that it was not available on earth. As far as space is concerned, we have already looked at planet x. mars also exhibited nuclear explosions. On december 9, 1949, the distinguished Japanese astronomer Tsuneo Saheki witnessed through his telescope what appeared to be a tremendously powerful explosion on mars. Saheki who has studied mars since 1933, reported that a "brilliant glow" lasting several minutes followed the bewildering explosion; then a "luminous yellow-grayish cloud" appeared. The dimensions of the cloud were estimated at a 694.4-mile diameter, with a height of nearly 40 miles. Saheki said: "It was undoubtedly an artificial atomic explosion, even more powerful than the H-bomb. That could have been set off by highly advanced beings..." On four occasions between 1937 and 1954, astronomers at Osaka observatory noted brilliant light flashes on the Martian surface. Volcanic eruptions were ruled out, as the light flashes were far more luminous and intense than any volcanic activity. On the first and second explosions the brilliant light was observed for 300 seconds (each), and 5 seconds each for the remaining two explosions. Mariner photos of recent martian craters can be interesting in this respect. In his thesis A Visitor from Outer Space, Aleksandr Kazantsev, a journalist and engineer, said: After the great opposition of earth and mars in 1956, AA Mikhailov, director of the Pulkovo observatory and corresponding member of the USSR academy of sciences, reported to a gathering of scientist at the Leningrad Scientist Club in Lesnoye that the pulkovo observatory had registered an explosion of tremendous force on mars. Judging by the fact that the consequences of the explosion had actually been observed through telescopes...the explosion had to be attributed to a nuclear explosion rather than anything else. It is difficult to imagine a nuclear explosion on mars that was not deliberately caused. It is very likely that the explosion was made for some constructional purpose. Thus, the pulkovo observatory observations can serve as one of the proofs in the favor of existence of rational life on mars." ^im wondering though that they ruled out volcanoes but did they rule out meteors here or was there deliberate misinfo going on at that meeting, hum?? This is from the book Did spacemen colonize the earth? by Robin Collyns from 1974 i just found it in my fathers library a month ago but im liking the old book alot, enough that im tracking down this guys other books. he also mentions an ancient serpent race who waged war in the past! I wonder if he is still around though?
