What Is With These Strange Mars Images?
Via Unknown Country: Your Out There editor has been watching Mars imagery for years, combing through it and evaluating the various claims made about it. 99.9% of the claims of UFOs, old shoes, armadillos, turtles and so forth are nonsense. However, there are now a substantial number of images that suggest that something is going on there that is outside of the context of the known or the believed. Two recent images shown are both unexplained and both deserve more than silence from NASA. The first one, of the snake-like form curving around inside the crevasse has been identified by one of our photo experts as a definite unknown and by another as an illusion created by the way the light is hitting a crack. Look closely, and you may or may not agree with his observation. The "crab" image has been identified by all of our experts as an unknown. So a question must be asked, which is why NASA absolutely never addresses any of these unknowns, except the ones that can be explained away? It could be that this is simply an effect of the culture of planetary science, which is hostile to any claims that fall outside the realm of accepted theory, or doing any research that doesn't match expectations. Of course, it's also possible that NASA is hiding something.
