More evidence of life on Mars has become available through Google Mars according to an amateur astronomer.
David Martines claims that Google Mars reveals an unambiguous image of a 750 foot structure on the Martian surface that is cylindrical in shape and appears to be a space base of some kind.
Martines posted a clip of the structure as seen through Google Mars in a YouTube video.
Google Mars provides a user interactive map of the Martian surface made up by visual and infrared images provided by two NASA Mars missions,
In his video, Martines claims he found the íspace stationí at coordinates 71 49í19.73ĒN 29 33í06.53ĒW which anyone can look up and check for themselves.
According to Alfred McEwen, a Planetary Geologist with the University of Arizona, the image Martines discovered is simply a glitch in the Google Mars imagery process:
Martines disagrees with McEwenís comment:
Martines has written to NASA about his discovery and is yet to hear back.
Martines may have to wait a long time.
NASA has a reputation for dismissing evidence of life on Mars. When
the 1976 Viking found evidence of organic life in two independent
Robotic Lander experiments, NASA dismissed the evidence as an
In the subsequent thirty years of
exploration of Mars with multiple NASA and European missions there
have been many
other ďanomaliesĒ found.
According to Dr Courtney Brown, a team of remote viewers agreed that the tube and dome were artificial in nature, and that the domed structure was inhabited. Martines might like to contact Dr Brown or another remote viewing team to view the image he discovered for a second opinion.
Martines discovery may be just a Mars Google image glitch, or it could be yet more evidence that intelligent life does exist on Mars.
