Face On Mars
In 1976, the NASA Viking 1 Robotic Space-Craft was sent on a mission to Mars. It was to take photo's of the planets surface. As data was transfered back to Earth, one picture sttod out from the rest. Starring back was a shape which looked simular to an Egyptian face. The shape was 3km from top to bottom. Once the Public got hold of the pictures, Conspiracies and Rumours started. The most popular conspiracy is that the Face is a monument created by Advanced alien life. Of course the Government and NASA would not addmit there was any truth to the Conspiracy. To prove this, another Space-craft was sent to Mars in 1997. This craft was called the Mars Global Surveyor. Its mission was to take more photo's of the Planets Surface. When the photo's were recieved it was confirmed that the Face was infact a Natural Feature. It was a Flat topped hill or Mountain. Looking at the photo's its easy to see how the picture could be mistaken for a face. Of Course the Government does like to Cover everything up and the photo's could be faked. But as far as I can see, they do look Genuine.
What you may not know!
In 1947, long before the Face on Mars story was ever heard of an American Painter called Isamu Noguchi planned to create a Sculpture of a Giant face. He was worried that with an Atomic Bomb, Humanity may one-day be wiped out. He figured that if he created a face, ExtraTerrestrails would know that a Civilised life form had once lived on Earth. However as there is no Face on Earth, this plan obviously never made it.
Life on Mars - The new Evidence ??
For thousands of years, people have wondered if life could exist on another planet. Officially the most promising place (other that Earth obviously) is Mars. Scientisits believe water may of existed on Mars at one point, due to a dried up river effect all over the planets surface. When pieces of rock were brought back to earth for examination, a rock was found with a micro type bug fossiled into it.
Spirit Rover is the name of a space machiene which Nasa sent to Mars on the 24th January 2004. Its mission was to take photo's of Mars and basically explore the red planet. However the most promising proof of life was in the form of a photograph taken in November 2007. The photograph seems to of captured an object which looks very simular to that of a person. Alot of people are seeing a Big Foot type creature walking behind a group of rocks. However when I look at the picture, I see a female kneeling on the ground perhaps looking for something.
Alot of people believe this is something special. But there are still the sceptics who believe is it simply light trickary, shadows and rocks. I'd like to believe we have finally found our first living creature on another planet. However the Face on Mars keeps jumping into my head. The first picture of that looked very convincing but then a second picture was taken and I could see how easily the rock looked like a face.
Either way, i'm sure if it is prooven as a photograph of a creature, the official story is always going to be that it was just a rock. Perhaps even with new photo's to suport the Goverments story.
