Mars - the bringer of war, inspiration for War of the Worlds and fourth planet in the Solar System.
"The chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one", said the astronomer Ogilvy, in H.G.Wells classic science fiction story The War of the Worlds. How accurate was Ogilvy?
Richard Hoagland, a former NASA consultant and co-creator of mankinds first ever stellar message leaving the Solar System aboard Pioneer 10 argues the case after what appears to be a face was found on a video returned from the Viking mission back in 1976.
However, a second frame taken 35 days later also provides startling clarity. What is it, and, if it's not a natural anomaly caused merely by sand erosion, how did it get there?
The Case for...
The D&M itself is located at 40.868° North. This number is the tangent of e divided by PI. By projecting lines across the Martian landscape, Hoagland has been able to make a possible data of construction. If one was to have stood at the City centre a mere half a million years ago, one could have watched as the Summer Solstice sun rose over the face to the east.
If you project a line in the direction of this sun, past the face it will go on to the cliff, which lies at the other end of the line. In fact, this is how the cliff was discovered.
If you look beyond the cliff, there is a huge crater which seems to have a tetrahedral structure embedded in it's rim. If you now measure the angle joining the cliff to the crater through the Tholus, you find that it is 19.5°. In fact, this 19.5° is a number that keeps occurring in the geometry of the Martian landscape, but what is the significance?
The Tetrahedral link
What do you get if you place imaginary tetrahedrons inside some of the other planets? Well, on Earth the chain of Hawaiian volcanoes is situated at 19.5° latitude. Jupiter's Red Spot is at 19.5° and back on Mars, a giant shield volcano, Olympus Mons is at 19.5° latitude.
Using these findings Hoagland successfully predicted in July 1989, two weeks before the Voyager probe confirmed it, that Neptune too would have a giant spot similar to Jupiter's and it too would lie at 19.5° latitude. Tetrahedral geometry also seems inexplicably linked to Crop Circle analysis. For example, the Barbury Castle formation of 1991 is a mathematically perfect 'twin inverted hyper-tetrahedron' - two hyper-dimensional tetrahedrons superimposed over one another, one upright and the other upside down.
The bottom Cheesefoot head pictogram of 1993 also conforms to 3D tetrahedral geometry. (see research article)
The Terrestrial Connection
Man and Beast
The Wiltshire link
Superimposing Silbury Hill over the top of the Tholus, the crater fits exactly over Avebury stone circle, even down to a mound on the rim of the Avebury circle corresponding to the tetrahedral marking on the crater.
Surely, if they possessed the technology to visit our Solar System, and Mars, it would be a mere galactic bus stop to continue on and visit Earth. Could they some how have influenced the primitive civilisations they discovered here?
Hoagland discussed even more links with ancient civilisations including the Atlantians and Mayans at a talk he gave to the United Nations in February 1992.
Although at the time of launch, no one at NASA would confirm or deny if more photos of Cydonia would be returned; somewhat puzzling as any curious mind would seek to confirm or deny the allegations put forward. This of course gave many people reason to believe this was just another Government cover-up.
In December 1993 NASA announced that due to a fault developing onboard Mars Observer, they were unable to re-gain communications - just as the probe was about to enter Mars orbit.
For a project costing $1 billion, the whole project seems to have been forgotten rather quickly by the media. "An accidental failure by the probe would be an ideal way to prevent the release of new photographs", claim Martian enthusiasts. Is this another Government cover-up, or merely a failure of human technology to conquer space.
If there's one thing extra-terrestrials can teach us humans, it would be how to get past the end of the garden path in Galactic terms.
... or was it all just a trick of the light?
