First up we have a picture taken by MSL Curiosity:
Here is the area of immediate interest:
The picture shows what looks like an outcrop of rock (lava?) that seems to have been eroded badly, either by the impact of windblown sand or dust.
Close examination of the picture shows a strange shape underneath the lip of the eroded rock. Here is an annotated version of the object of
The sample picture is notable for several distinct characteristics.
(1) Circular bulbous object, highlighted by PINK DASHES. This object of interest could be explained as being a door opening mechanism as only sighted
from long-distance from the MRO. Possible door locking/opening mechanism. It may be possible that there is a light-colored triangle shape on the
upper-side of the bulbous object. Such a symbol may be common to many door locations. Unfortunately lack of data/bad data means we cannot say for
(2) YELLOW lines to the left possible door lever or running channel.
(3) GREEN lines to the right possible door lever or running channel.
(GREEN DASHES above the afore-mentioned, indicates an area of interest that resembles a door or other type of access point.
The objects are very well camouflaged and not highly distinct from the rock.
(4) GREY BLOCKS indicate areas of interest. The upper row are possible symbols and/or characters. They may be image artifacts caused by computer
processing, or they could be in-situ. The two lower grey blocks are objects of interest that lie on the sandy surface below the lip of the rock. We
are unable to verify their presence, form or purpose, even theoretically, at this point - but they do appear to be objects. There had been a
suggestion that the objects on the ground may be debris of a destroyed stealth array, which are common in many areas of interest.
Here is a previous photo taken by MRO of an open
double-doored hatchway used to serve as some sort of venting and/or intake mechanism. Note the
circular shape and fans visible in the darkness of the "vent".
There is another example of a closed vent, taken by MRO, but this is a large door in comparison, probably with an industrial or transport purpose.
Another example of doorway tech on Mars may also have been previously seen, as discussed in my previous post:
Naturally, we cannot positively claim that we have discovered anything in regard to door-tech on Mars, but with every new pic we examine we move
closer to establishing greater understanding.
Continuing on from the last pic, note the large doors on the right (RED):
On the door seems to be some (roughly) triangular symbol:
This week MRO gave us a picture in which a possible match for that symbol appeared:
The above pic contains much exciting evidence. Hopefully, we will release our comments later.
