I've seen mars through a telescope. It looks red-ish to me. I know it isn't blue.

We have all been fed the story that Mars is the red Planet , NASA can't show images of a Mars that looks Earth like and dispel that myth , I'm not saying that Mars has the atmosphere and temperatures of Earth but it aint as red as we've been led to believe .
What the Technicolor® engineers developed was a beam-splitter which would take the original image coming through the camera lens and split it into two (later three) separate but equal images which would strike two different strips running in a special Technicolor® camera. In the original two-strip Technicolor® process, one film strip would have a red filter placed between it and the beam-splitter, while the other film strip would have a green filter. This meant that the "red" film strip and the "green" film strip would still be black and white to the naked eye, but each would have different gradations of gray which matched the spectrum of red, yellow and blue colors.
But why are they taken in black and white,one would think with all the technology we have that they would be in color?Why black and white?...........thanks

Where you really stumbled though was in quoting Hoagland and the face at Cydonia. The latest hi res images of the face showed it to be a natural feature. The face conspiracy is dead in the water. That's why Hoagland conveniently doesn't speak of it any more. The man is so intellectually dishonest and cowardly that he couldn't even bring himself to say 'I was wrong'.

If someone can give me the relevent code to insert in my post to display that image in the message, that would be awesome. Else, someone else stick it in their reply so you don't have to click the link. I've been trying [img] > and other HTML HREF code to no end.

True Color Images from Mars Rovers
Yes. Very nice, eh. Apparent colors can vary greatly, under differing conditions of illumination/technology that reproduce them, for ultimate human viewing.
Here is a True Color Image from Earth, courtesy of Kodos and Kang (from their wedding album, on their honeymoon to the Third Rock):
Can you name that (apparently) very red-sand desert that exists here on Earth?? I know I can't (and they aren't telling, either. They value their privacy dearly, and don't want autograph seekers and Paparazzi crowding into their private getaway......).
