Carlotto Finds Possible Ruins On Mars
Written By: Electric Warrior
(The Electric Warrior) - Even if you’ve had your fill
of the recent controversy involving infrared images
captured by Arizona State University’s Mars Odyssey
team, it wouldn’t hurt to take a look at one more
shot of Cydonia.
Mark Carlotto, whose New Frontiers in Science Web
site examines Martian enigmas like the Face on Mars,
has published an analysis of the region based on a
second multispectral image by THEMIS. As Carlotto
tells it, not only should the existence of a second
THEMIS image settle issues of authenticity raised by
the Enterprise Mission, it also raises further questions
about the possibility of extraterrestrial design on Mars.
Carlotto used two different bands of imaging data
that were just different enough to produce a stereo
image of an area that includes the Mars Face as well
as a rock-strewn area some 120 kilometers to the
The broken features appear to lie in rectangular
arrangements that suggest intelligent design. "On
Earth, in the Middle East for example, it would
certainly be seen as a possible archaeological site,"
writes Carlotto. "But it is on Mars."
Building a case for artificiality on Mars that even NASA
can’t dismiss takes time, and Carlotto would probably
tell you he thinks he’s doing his part. He isn’t doing
too bad. His new online article shows a side-by-side
comparison of the new THEMIS data and the highly
controversial data set released last July.
The July data is said to contain indisputable evidence
of a subterranean cityscape on Mars. The only problem
with that conclusion is that it relies on a special
version of the THEMIS data which Richard Hoagland
says the Enterprise Mission acquired under mysterious
TEM’s assertions also come with so much more. In a
recent interview Hoagland went so far as to say that
the mysteries of Cydonia point to an extraordinary
ancient heritage for humans that somehow reaches
all the way back to Mars. "In a way, I see the
ultimate confirmation of our heritage on Mars as
essential to ushering in a new day here on Earth,"
Hoagland told Dark Planet.
Carlotto’s work has never carried that much baggage.
To understand the context of Carlotto’s investigation
it helps to recall statements by the SETI Institute’s
Dr. Jill Tarter. "It’s possible that there could be, in
fact, within our solar system, some evidence of ET
technology," Tarter recently told Space.com. "They
may be here."
Tarter didn’t say exactly where we might find evidence
of extraterrestrial activity in our own solar system,
noting only that we haven’t gathered that much
information. Carlotto and the Society for Planetary
SETI Research say it’s worthwhile looking on Mars.
That’s why Carlotto finds his apparent Martian rubble
so interesting. "Will this new discovery be dismissed
as another optical illusion, like the Face about 120
kilometers to the north?"
Carlotto closes his article by inviting planetary
scientists at ASU, JPL and NASA to consider the
possibility that the growing list of weird alignments
and symmetries may not be coincidence after all. He
also asks why Cydonia has been targeted so often so
early in the mission if no one is taking it seriously:
"Perhaps this recent interest in Cydonia is an
indication that someone already has."
ASU Releases Second THEMIS Multispectral Image over Cydonia
(New Frontiers in Science) - Will this new discovery be
dismissed as another optical illusion, like the Face about
120 kilometers to the north? Or might some brave
planetary scientist at ASU, JPL, or NASA finally consider
the possibility that the growing list of ’coincidences’ of
symmetries, alignments, and enigmatic features may not
be a coincidence after all. Perhaps this recent interest
in Cydonia is an indication that someone already has.
