We are all aware that many people claim that life exists or previously existed on Mars. I believe that the following evidence lends weight to the
hypothesis that there is sentient life on Mars, now.
Let us take a look at what usually turns out to be a boring and innocuous picture, taken by the MRO: NASA seems to love pictures of the dunes as the
dry ice sublimates into the thin Martian atmosphere. One of the latest we looked at was that of defrosting dunes to be found at
At first glimpse all seemed ordinary. Simple record keeping really. As with many Mars pictures though, and not always with any scientific surety or
certainty, the pictures become difficult to interpret. This the major reason why robotic data collection is preferred over human interpretaion -
humans are brilliant at seeing hidden patterns, but extremely prone to wrongful interpretation. Great for instant spotting of something, but not so
good for empirical evidence building.
So there we were looking at this picture expecting to see the usual: discoloration of the surface soil; fanning due to CO2 sublimation (i.e. blown
across the Martian surface by the wind); various laval veins; the odd rock or geographic feature, etc, etc.
ESP_029614_1105 lives up to all that. Then we looked closely at the defrosting/fan area near the bottom right of the picture:
We have surface discoloration and CO2 fanning... hmmm we thought. Something there did not seem right, or 'normal', what we have grown to expect. The
CO2 fan seems odd: symmetrical, strangely grey-colored, and actually seems to be a structure rather than a surface marking caused by gaseous
Here is a closer loook at the area in question:
Now, to me this looks like an old rock-looking monolith, embedded in the sand. Its shadow is to the left as we view it. The top of the sand dune is
slightly above the object.
Closer examination of the object shows us things we do not believe:
1. Injured and bleeding "life form" lying atop the monolith - seems to be bleeding from a leg wound (?)
2. Directly below the "life form" appears to be a round (actually it appears to have two circular seams) door very well camoflaged to look like part
of an old rock.
3. To the right of the "door" is a whitish broken line in the form of an arrow. One side of the arrow is flush with the eadge of the object; the
vertex of the arrow points to the door.
4. A large camoflaged lever/hinge seems to connect the center of the circular door to the arrow. The "hinge" actually looks like one of the old
fridge/chiller handles that used to be common.
Given the nature of this post I am sure there will be many nay-sayers who merely see what they have been conditioned to see. This is understandable,
however we urge all to take a close look and figure out what this symmetrical object actually is.
