    Life On Mars?!

    Life on Mars?



    An image of a mysterious shape on the surface of Mars, taken by Nasa spacecraft Spirit, has reignited the debate about life on the Red Planet.
    A magnified version of the picture, posted on the internet, appears to some to show what resembles a human form among a crop of rocks.
    While some bloggers have dismissed the image as a trick of light, others say it is evidence of an alien presence.
    The image is from a Nasa posting of the Spirit's landing site in 2004.
    Perspective
    When the robotic rover set down on 24 January 2004, its images disappointed space-watchers hoping for signs of extraterrestrial life.
    Now they appear convinced that this image provides the evidence they have been trawling Nasa's photo files for.
    The blown-up image seems to resemble a figure striding among the Martian rocks.
    The internet has been abuzz with postings offering theories.

    One said it was a garden gnome, another that it was the Virgin Mary.
    A third suggested Bigfoot, the hairy bipedal mountain beast that appears in various guises in a number of legends around the world.
    But the consensus seemed to be that it bore a striking resemblance to the Little Mermaid statue in the Danish capital, Copenhagen.
    Poster "Madurobob" said it was a statue "obviously built by an ancient civilisation that later departed Mars and settled Denmark".
    Badastronomy.com tried to apply some perspective: "A man? It's a tiny rock only a few inches high. It's only a few feet from the rover!"

    Me for one thinks this is the definitive proof! TUSKENS HAVE COME TO MARS!

    Sorry if this has been posted before ^^

    I've seen it..... but I always get a kick every time it surfaces. Fun to watch the theories develop.

    In regard to it being only a few fet from the rover..... check the unaltered pic. Unless they equipped the thing with a wide-angle fish-eye lens.... then it's a good 20-50 yards away.

    Re: Life On Mars?!

    If there is life on Mars, I would theorize that it would be found inside the possible aquifer deep under the surface. I've seen this picture before, and studied other occurances that people claim have happened. And I'm confident, that if there is life on Mars, its not intelligent enough to build and sculpt. I'd put money on "deep underground sea" algae, but nothing higher than that. I think it would all be microscopic, but it could be there none the less.

    To take the conversation to another level, I don't beleive like a few extremist do that the "grey aliens" or any other form of higher or equal beings come from Mars, or anywhere in our close vasinity either. If anything, we're seeing something that has a missing key peice to it, taking into context, what we call UFOs. But when someone says, UFO, you hafe to relise, its just a word, and it stands for Unidentified Flying Object. I think people do get a bit carried away with the term. If you see a bird you can't ID off hand, then essentialy, it to is a UFO. But I also don't beleive that you can blame evrything on swamp gas and ball lightning. There's always something thats going to get your goose, and you'll never be able to explain. Such as the photo above. Evryone has diffrent veiws, and I can't say I agree with many of them. But thats the way I am.

    Yup, a lot of threads on this already - though still fun to see it come up from time to time...

    I think it is a natural formation. An odd one, but natural nonetheless.

    I'd have to agree with you..

    but to the OP, yes, it did remind me of a Tusken the first time I saw it, lol.

    I was a little disappointed when they found out it was only Bigfoot.

    I always thought the "face" on Mars looked very cool.
    Did you see the pictures that was enlarged to give better detail of the thing (the shape from the top picture). I'm a firm believer that there must be life out there(in some form), or as was said in the film "Contact" -"It would be a big waste of space otherwise".

    At first sight I thought it was a Tusken Raider too, haha, then I realised it was just this Mars image again.

    I wouldn't go so far as to say it's something alive, yet it's still odd

    Could be remains of the lost probe ... I still can't believe that happened ... and I still think it's funny (but sad.)

    Re: Life On Mars?!

    Ok, I'm not going to post another topic on this, but here mabey about 2 weeks or so ago there was a "UFO Hunters" episode on History channel about a certain head masager/fan blade "UFO". Now, any UFO show I have little faith in, and if I had to guess, I would say that this show is just another UFO show, untill I whatched this episode. Because after I did, I relised, its even worse. They had to have someone tell them its fake, because I think frankly they looked at the pictures they printed out in their super secret Kodak Easy Share printer, in their super secret lab/trailer, and beleived without facts it was real. This is the "UFO" in question. -



    I do beleive we disscussed it once before, because at the time there where pictures available of it very close, which showed Imperial-Esq. cogs on each fan blade. Now History channel is one thing, but AOL this afternoon, which was what reminded me of it, had the very first news headline, with picture, as this new article. -

    http://news.aol.com/story/_a/ufo-pho...00010000000001

    Oh, whats that? Someone else had seen it too? Well guess what America, I've also seen it! Evry day when I enter the bedroom, there it is, in the direct center of my room. And it must sence electric currents too, because when I flip a certain switch on the wall, it gets all excited and starts spinning! Come on America, pull yourselves together and look at the facts. #1. Your gullable. #2. Theres a UFO outside your door. #3. Ha! Your still realy gullable.
