Of all our sister planets in our solar system, Mars has long been
thought to be the most capable of sustaining life.The Red Planet has inspired
speculative writers from H.G. Wells to Ray Bradbury to weave tales of it's
fictional inhabitants'encouraged by what appeared to be "canals" on it's
surface, a sure sign of life in some part of it's history.But when NASA's
Mariner Project to Mars (1965 -1971) transmitted pictures of an apparently
dead planet of rocks and sand' it became clear that there was no life there
, and perhaps never had been. But speculation rose again in 1971 , when
Mariner 9 beamed back photographs from the Elysium Quadrangle on Mars, showing
pyramid like mountains. This speculation rose to fever pitch in 1976
when NASAs Viking Mars Mission snapped photographs of what appeared to be
a city of pyramids in Mars Cydonia region. Among those 50,000 photographs
taken by the Viking probe, Frame 35A72 carried the biggest surprise: a picture
of a giant face in the Martian soil-- a face that was 1.2 miles wide, 1.6
miles long and 1,500 feet high. If that wasn't enough there was also a five
sided pyramid near the face estimated to be two miles wide.
While the world sat stunned by the image'NASA quickly downplayed any possibility
that this face was any more than a natural rock formation, the accidental
creation of wind and erosion, and most definately not a deliberate work
art by some long dead Martian hands. As independant researchers
continued thier investigations, cataloguing the constructs as "The City"
"The Fort" "The Pyramid" and "The Face", with growing evidence that
these were signs of alien life, NASAs constant dismissal began to sound
more and more suspicious. Finally NASA, perhaps bowing to public pressure,
agreed to take closer photographs of the Cydonia Region with the new Mars
Observer Probe in 1993. But just as Observer was about to go into orbit around
Mars, it mysteriously stopped working.
THE STRANGE PART
The pyramid was found by researchers to have a precise mathamatical design,
( including a constant logarithmic base), and when viewed from above, strongly
resembled Leonardo Da Vinci's "Man in a Squared Circle". Further the
Pyramid, the City, and the Face all form the points of a perfect equalatrial
THE USUAL SUSPECTS
NASA could be lying about it's true feelings about the monuments on Mars,
for reasons both sinister and well intentioned. By lying about the Observers
breakdown, NASA could continue to study the monuments without the
interference of nosy media, hoping to keep any technological discoveries
to it's self, thus ensuring increased Federal funding.Or it could be hoping
to shield the public from knowledge that would bring panic and social
discord. The panic that Orson Welles caused with his production of "The War
Of The Worlds" makes it easy to see what public reaction to Mars discoveries
would be.Th Associated Press uncovered proof that NASA does indeed try and
obfuscate news it views potetially hamful, so the groundwork is there.
NASA is also bound by it's constitution to work in accordance with the government
to withold any information regarded as a threat to national security.
The undeniable truth of alien life on nearby Mars, would surely fall into
The Super powers Russia and America
The denial of these Monuments could be an attempt by these governments
to stall while they prepare a media blitz to acclimatize humanity
to the existance of aliens.This is borne up by Ronald Reagan's obscure references
to alien life in at least three seperate speeches.
THE UNUSUAL SUSPECTS
Perhaps there is still life on Mars, and they are less happy with constant
attention by NASA and the Russian space probes. By destroying several
craft that have come too near their home, the Martians would have
sent a sharp message to stay clear. In this scenario NASA would simply be
bullied into denying the Monuments in order to save mankind
from further damaging reprisals.
Judging from the Egyptian motifs in the Sphinx -like face and Martian Pyramids,
it has been suggested that Egyptians travelled to Mars through a dimentional
gate or with alien assistance. This would explain beliefs in Egyptian
mythology about the dead needing to journey to the Land of the Dead
(Mars) while being mummified (a crude interpretation of the suspended animation
necessary for a long space flight). The ancient Maya are suspected for similar
MOST CONVINCING EVIDENCE
The similarities between the Face an it's surrounding constructs, and the
Sphinx and the Pyramids at Giza, are shocking. The shared design on both
creations from a headress to a similar expression, coupled with the relative
physical placement of he Pyramids, suggests a shared time of constuction.
This woul pre-date modern man, and would fit with current archeologic theory
leaning towards the creation of the Sphinx being long before the rise
of the Egyptians.The crude face could be said to resemble Australopithicus,
which would have been man's current state of evolution when the Face and
Sphinx were constructed.
Most Mysterious Fact
Carl Sagan, media celebrity and author of Contact, discounted the Monuments
while paradoxically professing to believe in extra terrestrial life. His
close connection to NASA bears consideration on this point. Was he picked
to speak out because of his reputation?
Governments lie. It's what they do. If an alien ship landed in the
Tower of London, painting the Ravens pink and stealing the Crown Jewels
before departing for the stars with a rude sound , all it would take
to cover it up would be the government telling people it was a movie promotion.
And everyone would believe them. It's easier to sleep at night if you do.
However, just this once they may actually be telling the truth - so much
of the conspiracy is based on unprovable conjecture given the impossibility
of nipping over to Mars to check it out.
