Some anomalies have been discovered on Mars since the successful fly by of the Mariner 4 Spacecraft a little over 50 years ago which provided some detailed close-up images of the Red Planet.
It strated with NASA’s discovery of what may be evidence of living vegetation in aerial photos of terrain quite similar to earth’s deserts which appears to be dotted with shrubs.
Although NASA doesn’t agree, a Hungarian research team which has been analyzing the photos and other photos of the same area has concluded that the black dots on the photos are living organisms showing signs of the lifecycle of some kind of plant life.
Another image shows a ribbed tube or tunnel like structure partially covered by surface terrain.
The structure looks as though it has been exposed by some geologic process, and resembles the so-called glass worms discovered in other photos.
In addition, ‘The Tower’ structure as it has become known seems to show a tall tower or stack with a white tip casting a long shadow. If it is indeed a tower of some kind, then it stands at an incredible 6.3 kilometers high.
This is 12 times taller than the largest skyscraper on earth.
The Cydonia region of Mars also seems to be full of anomalous structures.
These include the infamous face as well as a group of features that have been called the Mars Pyramids with their relatively smooth Triangular sides which bear a close to the Pyramids at Giza.
Another intriguing formation is the D&M Pyramid formation which has been called the ‘Star City’.
It’s a complex structure that some researchers say shows walls of artificial construction, and is part of a large area of strange patterns and geometric objects.
According to NASA however, these structures most likely have a natural origin.
The Mars Curiosity Rover has also sent photos of what looks like a human finger complete with fingernails. Some have suggested that it’s a fossilized finger from a Martian or a broken off finger from a Martian statue.
Perhaps the most notorious of all the anomalies is the face of Cydonia because of its resemblance to a human face.
As it stands however, NASA has disavowed any unnatural explanation for these phenomenon and we can only hope for more clarity from future missions to Mars.
For now…We can only speculate.
