Armchair astronomer David Martines discovered what he believes to be a building on the surface of Mars.

Nicknamed "Bio-Station Alpha", footage of the structure has become an internet hit with over 200,000 views on Youtube. The object is allegedly 700 feet long and 150 feet wide and was originally spotted by Martines while browsing the Google Mars service.

My pleasure. I enjoy messing around with stuff like this. There's an absolutely amazing amount of Mars imagery available for public usage on those servers. But like I said you'll need NASA's own NASAview software to make sense of the images and export them as readable images - and it's almost unusably unstable on Mac, I had to try several times to export the images I wanted before success because it was crashing every 30 seconds, perhaps the Windows version is much better. Those who would accuse NASA of covering up findings from Mars should do their research properly and us... [More]
