A self-described "armchair astronaut" claims to have found a base on the planet Mars using a satellite imaging map. He thinks the base could have been made by aliens

The video David Martines uploaded to YouTube has been viewed more than 850,000 times. He says the 750'-by-150' cylinder-like structure that he's zoomed in on using Google Mars looks like it's made for people to inhabit. In the video, Martines say he assumes people live in the cylinder or have lived in it.

He named the shape "Bio Station Alpha." Experts told Space.come that the image was most likely caused by "cosmic energy" interfering with the cameras--not by aliens.



"It looks like a linear streak artifact produced by a cosmic ray," Alfred McEwen, a planetary geologist at the University of Arizona told Space.com. Cosmic rays, which are emitted by the Sun and other stars, don't make it to Earth because of its magnetosphere. "But with space images that are taken outside our magnetosphere, such as those taken by orbiting telescopes, it's very common to see these cosmic ray hits. You see them on optical images and a lot of the infrared images too."

If these streaks are common, I'm sure there should be more that were recorded so that we can compare with this one. It would be nice if the space.com article showed a couple of examples.

I missed that part. I thought they said it did not look like an image anomaly and still it was unexplained. Would you mind linking to the page where it was debunked?

The fact that it has gone viral is new.

Some people need to learn to have an open mind about things and stop having shut/closed up minds tighter than a gnats ass.

The difference between an "open mind" and " Gullibility" is ?

Common sense and logic, of course.

I have a saying, keep an open mind, but not too open, other wise your brain will fall out.

In simple terms, keep an open mind, but also keep common sense of logic.

I wasn't acting like he is the all-knowing lol. The poster said that they read through all of the old posts, so I was just giving them an example of what they missed. From what I've seen from Phage though, he actually does post pretty intelligent responses
