user posted image rThere is a strange door-like structure at the base of the mountain formation from a NASA image of Mars that is causing a stir. The first person to notice it wasn't a NASA scientist, however, but rather a Russian reader of the portal R and D.Cnews, Alexander Novgorodov.

Taking a closer look at an image taken by the spacecraft Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, he noticed an unusual morphology, which looks strikingly like a manmade doorway.

Even though it is probably natural but it looks almost like a perfect rectangle. It would be great if it turned out life did live there, but I would not like to find intelligent life still living there if it did.

Wow, a dark object and everyone thinks its a door in a mountain! I believe it's just a shadow - cant be erosion as Mars doesn't have seas and oceans to get the water cycle going, though it could just be winds...

Either way, people shouldn't get excited over a dark object on another planet, what's going to happen when man manages to walk on Mars, goto the 'door' and find it's a shadow or hole? If there are Martians, theyd be laughing at us...

so it cant be erosion but it can be winds......? pretty sure you have no idea what you're talking about. also, if people are making a stir about it, including nasa, then more than likely its not a shadow.

If you look left you see another dark spot (shadow) in the shape of a triangle, which looks to be coming from a rock. I think the "doorway" is just shadow. Besides, it's at the base of the mountain... so why is it facing the mountain wall? shouldn't it be a part of the mountain wall? And the image is birds-eye-view... if it is a gap, then it's a hole in the ground, not a doorway  huh.gif And I didn't read about NASA investigating this... I just read a Russian reader of some magazine spotted it.

Could this just be a gap in the original photograph or maybe a copy of the original photo?

It looks fairly big, doesn't really resemble a rectangle or a door and is on an angle so it would make entering and exiting it a bit of a hassle.

I am not a man, merely a parody of one.

Just looking at the scale of things it would be a very large doorway seeing as it is on the side of a mountain.

What about this characteristic over here?  It looks like... a loading ramp.  OMG, the mountain is a giant Martian supermarket!

I am sure it is a door.  This is very bad news for Earthlings...now that the Martian Federation has been 'found out', that door will soon open and a swarm of Martian Spaceships will be headed for Earth.  Who knew that one little picture would be the beginning of war with Mars.

That's pretty cool. But who knows what it really is.

They're still obsessed with Mars.
