New photo reveals the real Face on Mars

Posted on Saturday, 31 July, 2010 | Comment icon 60 comments | News tip by: Still Waters

A new high resolution image of the infamous Face on Mars has revealed it as nothing more than a rocky hill.

The original Face on Mars was photographed in 1976 by the Viking spacecraft and generated years of conspiracy theories, later however newer photographs of the site revealed the face as little more than a trick of the light.

"It was the startling photograph that spawned a thousand conspiracy theories."

Once again, as a historian, nothing would give me greater happiness than learning that there was an ancient civilization on Mars or that there might have been ET visitors in the past. I'd be pleased if there were real historical or scientific evidence for something like this, but evidently this isn't it. I know there have been many technical arguments over the years about the vailidity of these "Face on Mars" pictures, but I never said much about them because I didn't know much about the science and technology involved. Well, too bad we haven't yet found any relics or artifacts of an alien civ... [More]

We all mostly agree on this point,and If by chance someday we Dig up a Alien space craft with a Cro-magnum Man at the Controls we may need to change the History Book`s !

I can't believe anyone really thought it was a face in the first place. (The real face was eroded by the canals eons ago.) What does this mean for the Martian Stonehenge? I keep seeing faces in the clouds, I know they're living in our atmosphere. Hurricane Katrina was an alien conspiracy!

This is pretty funny, the second I looked at the picture in the OP's link, I immediately saw a face. Am I the only one? If anything it looks way more pronounced than any old pictures of "the face". In fact I never really cared much for the whole face on Mars idea and wasn't really convinced. Looking at this picture, the right side that's in the shadows really appears to be half of a face. I see an eye a nose and a mouth, he looks like he's p***ed. And the left edge of the shadow is the peak where symmetry on the other side should appear, there appears to be a "brow" to line up with the eye on ... [More]

I don't know how anyone can wholeheartedly say that this Nasa image is final proof that debunks the mythical face on Mars. It's only a partial picture of part of the so called face rather than the whole face and even if there was a face on Mars, most of it would of probably eroded away by now. If people are going to prove something or debunk something, at least be rational about it and use good reasoning while doing so. There's plenty of eroded pyramids on Earth that to onlookers no longer look like pyramids, but that doesn't change the fact that in the past they were pyramids. http://www.tour... [More]

I'm glad NASA took care of that myth, although I'm sure there will be consipracy theories that live on. Now I should start by saying that I look at things in the rational mind and the conspiracy mind and going by how governments and wealthy organizations lie to the public constantly not to mention that one a show called The Universe I was watching the scientists said that if alien life were proven that religions would be destroyed, people would become irrational etc etc. And the fact that the "face" on Mars was a leak ie before NASA has a chance to doctor it. Of course NASA is going to say it ... [More]

Is it possible? Can it really be that some people on this site actually believe what NASA tells them? NeverAStraightAnswer NASA?) Next you'll be believing newspapers, politicians and the history channel!

Next you'll be believing newspapers, politicians and the history channel! Whereas (say) Alex Jones can be believed? Is it that "independent" sources seem to be trusted more because they're not sponsored by governments or big business? What do people like Alex Jones or those behind other conspiratiorially-minded websites, or people who put something up on Youtube, want? Viewers, listerners, hits, don't they. How would they get them? By being as dramatic as possible a... [More]

Next you'll be believing newspapers, politicians and the history channel! Do you actually understand what NASA is telling you? Do you know how to read scientific literature? Do you understand how to do source checking and verification? By all means of respect, but I doubt it given such a post. Do you even know how much of the work done by NASA is in fact done by others outside of NASA - entities completely independent of NASA with their own agendas and policies? Aga... [More]
