Very interesting!! The initial image/photo is pretty damn spectacular too.

Looks like your standard Martian volcano to me...

It's an "innie", not an "outie"...

...what I mean is that it is a sinkhole/crater caused by the surface collapsing over a cavern -- it is NOT a volcanic mountain.

There are several on Mars, with the caverns thought to be formed by geologic stresses (fault lines) or lava tubes -- or, I suppose maybe even water.

I wish people would start posting these threads on geological features in the right forum.

Lava Tubes have nothing to do with UFO's and Aliens. Any first year Geology student could identify what that is. Odd how the thread keeps going after the answer was posted on page one.

Fascinating.

I can't wait till we get in there and have a look see. Who knows what we shall find.

Any connection to the hole they announced quite a while back? Or is that a different one entirely?
It too is very round....but i dont recall a crater like that....
It would be cool if there were a ot of this tpe of features on Mars because i could imagine they would make ideal habitats for us.....(just while we geo engineer the planet)

One thing is for certain: These holes don't form without help. Usually it means water is the cause or lava...though the process could've taken years (hundreds, thousands?)

Unknown. Since there is no weathering effects like wind or erosion, then this may have been sitting there just like we see it for millions, even billions of years. The vacuum of space is a good preserver.

Unlike the erosive effects of ATS negative posters which washed away this conversation in less than a day.


Some people insist on clogging the boards with useless comments about board-clogging.
Sort of self-determined Mods...

Gives a whole new meaning to saying the same crap over and over. Already discussed, previous thread, got all the T-shirts (insert farting sounds).

I'm pretty sure that's what they're blurring out at the south pole on google earth.. Hollow Earth Theory perhaps?

Hollow Mars.

whats this lame image, i can make a better one with photoshop.

what is that "in" the hole..... is that meant to be "water"???

whateva


peace

Simple sink-hole.

Nothing else.

But it proves water on mars.

Guess this is another, 2010 this one was found by school children looking at photos of Mars. Extremely weird hole.



www.redorbit.com...

i believe there were a couple others and also there is the ones on the moon that look almost exactly the same!

Lol. That was my immediate impression too when i sighted the image

This topic has been discussed already only a few days ago. Search is your friend.....................

Why cooled down lava? Yes it's possible but I think an object that impacted at an angle and dug the ground may have caused this caves too. That is it's not a cave just a crater under angle and is seen as a cave. Unless they stop these primitive missions and not do one mission to Mars for once.. no one will know.

The dark spot turned out to be a "skylight," an opening to an underground cavern, that is 35 meters (115 feet) across. Caves often form in volcanic regions like this when lava flows solidify on top, but keep flowing underneath their solid crust. These, now underground, rivers of lava can then drain away leaving the tube they flowed through empty. We can use the shadow cast on the floor of the pit to calculate that it is about 20 meters (65 feet) deep.

Not quite. The volume of "sand" on the surface has to go somewhere and it is most likely in heap under the hole so its 20 meters down to the top of the sand "heap". A rough guesstime would be all the sand from the surface occupying the same volume and shape but inverted. Thus making the cavern below 70 metres high (assumption a 60% degree slope).

The caves could also be fault lines caused by geologic/volcanic stresses. These stresses could basically create underground rips and tears, such as the holes in this article:

What IF...


When Mar's interior cooled down, in turn losing it its magnetosphere & atmosphere, rendering all life dead on the surface, that the crust also detached from the upper crust creating another safer world inside the red planet,, thus giving born to an entire new generation of lifeforms living inside the crust, and this is a picture to that opening

What if mars is totally habitable and were being lied to? Why do they give us pictures that arent properly colored (red sky) and say thats what it really looks like, dust storm bla bla but its easily proven the color isnt set right in the pics. Why are we told theres .001 earths atmospheric pressure there but they say theres dry ice there. But can dry ice even exist at that pressure?
