What the hell is this thing they just discovered on Mars?

by editor on June 5, 2011

This is not the kind of story we typically cover at IHateTheMedia.com, but we’re making an exception because THIS IS FREAKIN’ STRANGE.

David Martines was playing with Google Mars when he stumbled across something that is absolutely inexplicable.

Let’s let David describe it:

“This structure is 700′ x 150′, and is colored white with blue and red stripes against the red Martian soil. This is not a rock or mountain. It is a manufactured structure. This is not something that I created, this is something that is currently on Google Mars. NASA won’t talk to me about it. I’ve sent them a few emails, and no reply. Go see for yourself. The coordinates are: 71 49’19.73″N 29 33’06.53″W.”

Watch the video and you’ll say the same thing we did:

WTF? What the F-in’ F?

Update: If you’re into discoveries found on Google Earth, you’ll might find it interesting to zoom in on this anti-obama crop circle in Louisiana.

Its a low resolution digital image. This is the reason it is blocky when zoomed in. If you could get a higher resolution image, it would probably show a rock formation, crater or something. This is what happens when you compress a digital image. You get blocks for pixels.

Forget digital images – this is what happens when you compress secondary education.

My friend instantly recognized it as an overturned 18-wheeler fuel truck. NASA doesn’t have a tow truck on Mars yet, so it will be there until they renew their AAA membership.

It’s a rocket filled with Obama’s school transcripts, IQ tests, first drafts of the books he’s written (well, these are the one’s HE’S written) along with Joe Biden’s brain (which was removed and replaced with a hamster so they could get more “uptime” out of him) and all of Michelle’s excercise equipment. NASA spent it’s whole budget on this project and that’s why the astronauts will be hitching rides to the space station from the russkies.

What a sad thing for real science. I am measurably more stupid for watching this.

Lol…hey while you are at it did you notice all those artificial straight and perpendicular lines on the surface – they must be an alien land scaping activity (see for you self starting at 3:10) …. Either that or they are picture stitching artifacts from assembling a combination of images at different resolutions to make a globe.

I lean a lot less towards pixellation. Pixellation would tend to all run in the same 2 directions.

Could it be a ribbed dildo from Uranus?

Every one is a sceptic. of course some people can only believe a lie and ignore the truth or the posibilities. Did google or Nasa make a mistake on this picture?
that is the first question. is this picture of mars ? question 2. Fact 1, Nasa has refused to take close up or release images of close ups on mars that may resemble a structure or pyramid etc… this image looks from a distance like piping or vessel construction similiar to water dealination and oxygen plant with housing. Fact 2. nansa thinks there is water underground on mars. I am not so arrogant to think other life doesnt exist outside earth and that the earth is flat. The structure looks new , not made of rock and not covered by the sand. Hmmmm. Really== Well if it is an alien structure, there does not seem to be any airports. Must be Martiens. Wow did I saw that? History has always spoken of the underworld , behaps mars has a huge underworld which may be the only place an organic species can live on mars. Very interesting image and inconclusive. nice job on your find.

Yes, it’s real. A real digital artifact, that is! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_artifact
If you have a few days, you can also peruse the web and see Atlantis and countless other wonders of what the ancient aliens left behind. Sorry to be snarky, but come on…

This is not a base or anything special on Mars..I wish it was.

Here read this link and the post by member Phage.

Its pixelation.

Somebody else has already pulled the raw image and looked at through photoshop and it was obviously a row of white pixels from a glitch. Nothing more. Sorry, I’m too lazy to find the link. Just trust me. It was obvious.

Awwww, that’s too bad because Kucinich was already working with NASA officials on a pilgrimage to visit his ancestral home.

Honestly, using google mars to inspect the surface and make sense out of what you see, is akin to using a cereal box decoder ring to decrypt military communications. It’s a frigging toy! Not a serious scientific instrument.

Found it eventually. I just get a really bad pixelated picture.

40 years of watching television leads me to conclude that this is the wreckage of the Battlestar Galactica! If you look closely you can see the larger Engineering Section and the pylons supporting the Viper hangars! Awesome picture!!

If this is real we need to find out how owns this place, maybe it’s for rent???

It’s one of many satellites which are orbiting mars. Not a structure on the surface of course.

I can’t believe the people who posted neg comments can’t see the structure in the image. There’s a smooth metal cylinder shaped structure there. The right hand side is more difficult to make out, but the left is pretty darn clear.

Thread, meet the Energizer Bunny. No one is questioning if there is a structure in the image. Do you really think the media jackals would miss an opportunity to hype this silly photo if it wasn’t already explained to death? Hey, I pay big bucks to receive this forum; let’s please get back to the witty indictments and sexual innuendo.
