Good find arken.
Certainly the porthole is artificial.

That full version of that second picture has many peculiar objects. Did you see the disks? I've counted at least 3 perfect circle objects in that photo.

1st pic is interesting but not exciting,
the 2nd one.......... That has to be artificial, doesnt it?
Instead of just saying its rocks can someone point out a similar natural occurrence on Earth?
And for those saying paraleoida (ignore the spelling you all know what I mean) Its 3 straight lines ffs, not really much room for misinterpretation there.

The rock in front of the "portal" also looks odd, it looks like it should have fallen over a long time ago, almost looks to thin to be standing the way it is.

Great find Arken S&F

Has this thread got a virus?

How can you use the word certainly? Its a fracture, granted its not a common shape of a fracture but its a fracture all the same. if there wa something artificial or unnatural here then it would be much more obvious. One fracture of an unusual shape with no others of the same shape in vicinity is enough to class this as a rock and unnusual fracture.

I am not skeptic when it comes to theres more to know but this aint it and its a wild rock chase inspired by the OP who is persistently (commendable mind) seeking what is probably not there. They have OD on ODD.

I agree, also why would they a) build this doorway or whatever it is wonky? and b) why do you need a doorway into a rock anyway? as I said, without 100% undisputed evidence, it's not worth worrying about.

Imagine if you will adapted evolved lifeforms on Mars. Just as life evolved on earth due to climactic changes so life "MAYBE" adapted on Mars to cope with what we would call "IMPOSSIBLE" conditions.

If our planet faced obliteration where would we go ? The Moon ! NO. We would go underground call me nostalgic but we are in no state to leave this planet.

So imagine what lies beneath the surface of the planet Mars ?

Some 'artificial' rock formations can be found on Earth too....

On the full-sized porthole picture, not only is there the porthole, but if you look towards the bottom left, there are two perfect pyramids - this must be proof that there was once life on Mars building pyramids and when the SHTF there, the Martians moved to Earth and built the pyramids here - that explains so much - we are all really Martians!!

Like I and many other non ODD ATS'ers keep saying......just rocks!

There should be a rule that says dont post rock images unless there is more than 1 consistent item that appears not to be just rock. When an image is shown that shows 2 or 3 iteems that are clearly not natural where there is no doubt then I will call...not rocks. Until then its just ODD and rocks.

Odd anomalies. Something don't match, as usual, in the weird environment of Mars... I've found something that appear like a "root" and a rectangular "porthole" and frankly I don't know how they were formed...

The "Root"
mars.jpl.nasa.gov...



The "Porthole"
mars.jpl.nasa.gov...

How about the Superior Articular Facet and the Spine body of a creature? The mind will see what it wants to see, but a picture won't due. However, your eye for detail is amazing and I am A big fan of your meticulous work.

The "root" looks like a Barbie buried upside down in the sand!

The only problem with the "porthole", though, is that I don't see an "incision" or "cut" on the bottom side. To what purpose would that serve?

Yeah Arken with second one you hit the jackpot .. undeniable to my opinion ..
I'm always a found believer of ruins on mars , these slits are definitely not naturally formed maybe the ancients made them..

Hi there Observer1, and thanks.
We never forget that Gale Crater was a huge Lake.

We can find many anomalies at the bottom...

Here's the full image of the "porthole" , it looks geological to me but hey .


Why I give you Always a star for your contribution?

Rarely we are on the same side, but I respect and appreciate your opinion. Always.

This is a good find, definitely! Inspite of a zillion potentially strange shapes that mother nature can produce, I still think that some of Curiosity's images up to now (like this one) contain really strange features and details. And I'm not just talking about the rectangular porthole in the second image of the OP.

Whatever those features are, the story of what happened on Mars is mostly concealed by the dustcover and the missing knowledge concerning the forces & events that led to what we see on the surface today. ChemCam and SAM results could help, but it'll certainly take more than that to unravel the mystery surrounding the planet's past.

Sure, it's all rocks ... at first glance. Intermingled and mixed up, buried beneath the typical dust. But there could be something else inbetween & underneath, heavily eroded, partially molten or whatever. We'd have a difficult time actually recognizing any remains of life, civilization, technology etc. it all depends on the cataclysms involved, I guess. But that's just my 2 cents, as usual!

Don't go fancy with a snappy headline. IF you just say "Nature abhors a straight line so how is this possible?". It looks better to post an answer with the picture but perhaps it's better to pose a question to start a debate.
Excellent attention to detail. Keep up the viewing.
What would happen if you put up a picture and debunked it your self? Showing how you could have interpreted it and why you changed your mind?
