This blog actually started off to be about something completely different than what it ended up being about. When Mr. S.D. sent the following article about NASA director Jim Bridenstine's remarks about going back to the Moon and "staying there" and wanting "lots more people in space," I thought this was a worthy topic for today's high octane speculation. Here's the article that Mr. S.D. passed along:

But then I clicked a link within the article that led me to this story, and to the picture that begins it, a picture of something on the surface of Mars which, initially, NASA designated - no doubt with palpitating hearts and beads of sweat - as "foreign object":

Here's the picture from that article, which I have performed  color, contrast, levels enhancements upon, with two arrows pointing to some very weird things. The arrow to the center and left of the picture is the "foreign object" apparently that NASA has now "explained" as being nothing but an unusually shaped rock, and the arrow to the upper right is "something else" that caught my eye. Here's the photo from the article, as I performed the above transforms:

What instantly pops out is that the object in question, via these transforms, appears to have a high, and almost metallic, albedo. More importantly, when I cropped that section of the photo, this property not only persists, but it appears to be relatively thin for a "rock", and is casting a definite shadow which tends to confirm its "thinness":

I don't know about you, but Never A Straight Answer's explanation that this is just a rock (subtext: "a trick of light and shadow") does not seem to this pair of eyes to be much of a rock. If it is a rock, why are its albedo properties so very different from all the other "rocks" surrounding it, and why is it so very much thinner than the other obvious rocks around it?

My conclusion: it's not a rock, and NASA is saying something ridiculous again, and knows it is saying something ridiculous (nod nod, wink wink).

But the other thing that caught my eye was "possible object number two" as I've designated it:


Now, granted, this strange thing looks both like ordinary fissures and cracks in a table-like rock on the surface, which it could very well be. But beneath the central "hole" (if it is a hole), one sees a rectangular yellowish "thing", and above the "hole" one sees two "fissures" at the end of which are two high albedo rocks. Or, one is looking at a "something", with a rectangular yellowish "something" underneath a central black "some other thing", with two black "leg-or-antennae-like things" at the end of which two "globe like things" of high albedo appear to be attached.

So we have a "something" on Mars which definitely looks to my eyes as something metallic, and a "possible other thing" with its own high weirdness. Given the context, my vote on the "second something" is that it's not a rock either.

But in this case, your eyes may see something(s) very different from mine, and thus this may all be a case of "you tell me."

See you on the flip side...

    In this era of fake news it’s my turn, your new NASA press secretary.

    There has been a huge misunderstanding and a classic example of mass hysteria. What has been assumed to be the Martian Rover was/is actually a rock. Now that the benchmark has been clarified do any of you seriously believe that this lustrous lithic specimen is anything but a cousin to the newly defined aggregate?

    Anybody remember the “Alien Property Office”?

    This brings to mind the in-depth Q & A material from the scientifically-based (civilian) telepathy research project which resulted in over 100 sessions of ‘contact’ that became known as The Ra Material. (The questioner was a physicist with a metaphysical bent and interest in meditation and psychic phenomena). Much was ‘discussed’ about The Red Planet and the fate of it’s previous population, pursuant to their own self-inflicted demise. (as well as Maldek, nka the asteroid belt). Observing the prevalence of war-mongering wackos on our own beleaguered planet, gives much credence to this ‘hidden history’ of the solar system. Here is a search page of the archives in re. the topic:

    On the left end of the building are two right angles positioned right next each other. One goes horizontal over what looks like the roof of the building. The other goes down the side of the building. Sorry NASA, but Mother Nature doesn’t like right angles, particularly when they are positioned right next to each other…

  5. Eve Leung on August 31, 2018 at 10:07 pm

    ROFL!!!! These guys are funny, the only Foreign Object on Mars should be the rover NASA sent to Mars now roaming around on the Martian surface, they really do think Mars belongs to them aye.

  6. Margaret on August 31, 2018 at 9:24 pm

    Yup, looks metallic to me… but can you imagine what the compound might be? Sitting there for who knows how long & no corrosion, no patina from age… but rather new looking that never aged. It looks almost paper thin & very pliable. There is an ancient type of stainless steel that aliens have used that can endure all the elements. But as far as I know, no one knows what they used to make it.

    • Kahlypso on September 4, 2018 at 2:32 am

      You’d have to ask Bigelow… 🙂
      Is there no way that this could be a section of panal thrown off the Mars Rover? A lot of people forget this.. but its a hefty piece of machinery.. it’s not small..

      Musing.. If this IS an alien metal, or remnant of an ancient Martian civilisation.. why the heck are we looking at it? JPL should have paintbrushed it out by now..

  7. marcos toledo on August 31, 2018 at 6:50 pm

    This looks like trash from either an ancient civilization or maybe an emergency landing from one of the Grays patrolling the solar system. Then on the other hand a salted photo to lead the ancient alien-ET crowd astray. I do hope the return to the Moon for good this time and on to Mars doesn’t fizzle out like it did under GHW Bush. I want a real 2001-Star Trek future.

    • Kahlypso on September 4, 2018 at 2:34 am

      They already have teleportation and soon warp drive… Lasers have made huge leaps forward.. we’ll have phasers.. and photon torpedos have been replaced by the Marauder project..Space Force will be the ‘Federation’
      We just have to ensure that the Rockefellers.. (and in this case.. Bezos as well.. and Virgin’s top pedophile Richard Branson dont get up there and do a rince and repeat….) don’t get up into space and do another United Fruit Asteroid mining company.. Otherwise forget Star Trek.. Itll be the Empire from Star Wars..

    Knowing almost nothing about geology any more (I was the only student studying Geology in Scotland in 1983/4, on my own, at the back of the class, doing outings with 6th formers, and I still somehow managed to pass without much real teaching on the subject … yeahhh). Anyway, that thing is thin, and shiny. The only thin and shiny rock like that I can think of, that springs to mind, is mica. There may be many more minerals like this but a lot of my knowledge about geology and minerals has floated off into the ether. I’m sure a google search could bring up something, if something exists.

    However, going with this premise, mica is brittle, and is produced in sheets. So … this thing looks bendy. Mica doesn’t do that. If it was mica, it would have broken long before bending to that kind of extent.

    So … yep, looking pretty much like a metal to me.

    So then we come to the big one: what is a piece of metal like that doing in Alaska … oop sorry … on Mars? Anyone???

    • Margaret on August 31, 2018 at 9:27 pm

      Where I live in New Hampshire, mica is everywhere & you are right, even though it can reflect like a mirror, it is very brittle & fragile.

    Okay, well, if you want to dig further into artificial objects on Mars, look at these from Richard Hoagland’s website:
    There are lots of anomalies on the surface….
    Of course, your mind could see what it wants to see, but there are some photos that just pop out and can’t be ignored…
    These photos also get to the point of NASA always choosing landing sites where there are artifacts of some sort…
    By the way, I think Babylon 5 was the best sci-fi series ever made. It was the first series to be storyboarded out for 5 years so they could focus on character development.

    Lowly nave, how dare you question the pronunciations of NASA’s highly paid High Priests of Scientidiocy! Clearly this is a bit of dust and pebbles and your eyes can’t compare to our superior orbs. Crawl back into the nether world, thou foul troglodyte. Leave science and discovery to those who are well remunerated by your hard-earned taxes. Speaking of which, get back to work, we need more billion-dollar rovers whose data you will never comprehend.

    And to think you could possibly add anything of value to this discussion. Ha!

  13. WalkingDead on August 31, 2018 at 8:25 am

    It could well be a foreign object. One should also ponder if this might not be litter from one of our own spacecraft. We have been littering several planets with our spacecraft for quite some time now. Someone will eventually come along and pick it up; no doubt we have prisoners on other planets doing “community service” and wiping down solar arrays on lander’s and rovers. That secret space program most likely has a few bad apples in it that just can’t seem to stay out of trouble.

    MiB Agent Kay: “Fifteen hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat. And fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you’ll know tomorrow.”

    Joseph, your two ‘finds’ (whether real or not) make a great case for human exploration of Mars. Without ‘boots on the ground’ providing real-time shifts in perspective (and even picking the things up), the no life on Mars camp will always be able to explain it away as “..there was no alien [object]. The flash of light you saw … was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.” (modded from Agent Kay)

    And speaking of the bigger picture:
    Agent Kay: “There’s always an Arquillian Battle Cruiser, or a Corillian Death Ray, or an intergalactic plague that is about to wipe out all life on this miserable little planet, and the only way these people can get on with their happy lives is that they Do Not Know About It!”

    This ‘attitude’ did not work out too well for a former Mars community. Nuclear Physicist John Brandenburg discovered evidence of the ‘extinction’ of an Ancient Civilization on Mars via Xenon 129. This is an isotope of Xenon produced ONLY through rapid capture of neutrons. And the nuclear physicist community (those with security clearances) immediately knew that Xenon 129 was only produced in a nuclear weapon explosion. (Later, Iodine 129 – produced in a nuclear bomb – was also found.) Two localizations of the isotopes were found, suggesting two massive nuclear airbursts.

    So, no life on Mars may be true, and debris scattered around the planet may also be true…

    • Margaret on August 31, 2018 at 9:31 pm

      Well, that is what we have been told that their was a nuclear explosion & what habitants were left allegedly came to Earth.

    • Kahlypso on September 4, 2018 at 2:56 am

      As the Germans were working on Nucelar bombs.. because they wanted hydrogen bombs.. Imagine what the hydogen bombs can set off if the hydrogen is in a plasma form moving at relativistic speed… Synchroton Radiation.
      Synchrotron radiation (also known as magnetobremsstrahlung) is the electromagnetic radiation emitted when charged particles are accelerated radially, i.e., when they are subject to an acceleration perpendicular to their velocity.
      Synchrotron Emission is the same as cyclotron emission, but in the limit in which the electrons are relativistic, which makes the gyration frequency dependent on the energy (velocity) of the electron, and it causes strong beaming of the electron’s dipole emission.
      In the relativistic regime, the electron energy becomes Ee =γ mec2, where γ = (1 − v2/c2)−1/2 is the Lorentz factor. This boosts the gyration radius
      by a factor γ, and reduces the gyration frequency by 1/γ.

      Note that now the gyration frequency does depend on the velocity (energy)
      of the (relativistic) electrons, which in principle implies that because the
      electrons will have a distribution in energies, the synchrotron emission is
      going to be continuum emission.

      Nuclear explosions are triggers and chemical reactions at these people’s level Margaret. You need to think about how to kill a planet. (other than driving a moon into it a la ‘Marduk (aka in Egypt as RA) How do you get the energy to pass through all that bothersome rock. . .

      Patents for creating plasma toroids.

        • zendogbreath on September 4, 2018 at 11:52 pm

          gotta throw my shill for electric universe theory. i’m bettin valis marinaris and grand canyon formed over night sometime the last 20,000 years and there were humans there to see it. interplanetary electric discharge carving – lightning. and with all that plasma in glow mode, alotta water got made from all those excess hydrogen ions jumping onto to nearby oxygen atoms causing floods amundo and maybe even throwing some species from one planet to another in the interplanetary flows of water. martian calamari anyone?

          • goshawks on September 5, 2018 at 1:15 am

            ZDB, every time I look at a planetary-view photo of Valis Marinaris, it stands out as something really odd. The overall shape, the erosion patterns, the flow sources, etc. It almost seems ‘stretched out’ from inside, like a planetary stretch-mark. Some weird combination of failed plate-tectonics and mantle-plume?

            To me, we would learn a helluvalot about Mars’ formation and geology by ground-truthing Valis Marinaris… (Including whether the Electric Universe theory had anything to do with the formation.)

          • goshawks on September 5, 2018 at 3:19 am

            On the topographical JPG (above), it appears like a large ‘mantle-plume’ was at the left (west?) end of Valles Marineris. Note the higher-elevation circular mound. There are ‘stretch-marks’ at the center of that mound – which probably led to them becoming ‘drainage channels’. An incipient Olympus Mons? Also, the Tharsis Volcanoes are not far away. Plus, I just noticed the mound is at almost the exact other side of that volcano line from Olympus Mons. I wonder what is at X marks the spot? (grin)

            Note also that the gigantic Hellas impact basin occurs on nearly the opposite planetary side from the mound/volcano region. Did the shockwaves from this asteroid-impact spread out and then coalesce on the impact antipodes to crack the crust like an eggshell and let mantle-plumes through? Might it be that Valles Marineris did ultimately originate from off-planet?

            The other interesting thing is the seemingly vast amount of water that flowed from Valles Marineris to the ‘sea’ at the right (east?). Flip back and forth between the two JPGs to get a sense of the sheer magnitude of those flows. Gargantuan…

            So, what caused those water flows? Did they originate within VM (along the crack) or just within the mound/volcano area? The terrain (marsain?) slopes from the mound/volcano area down to the sea shore. Did the water ooze-out from along the length of VM and gradually deepen the initial ‘river’? (VM initially formed before the mound.) Or, did heated water burst-forth from the mound/volcano area and actually cut the initial ‘river’ channel? (VM formed during the mound-building ‘event’.)

            As I said, this area is quite an enigma…

        • zendogbreath on September 4, 2018 at 11:57 pm

          curious what the germans thought of tesla’s and einstein’s tiff. kinda doubt they ever regretted letting einstein go. and they already seemed to have tesla’s ideas.

    Photoshopping is the art of altering images, to support a meme. It is creativity.

    Cows jumping over moon, and dishes running away with spoon, is the game.

    It is natural to dream while asleep, and that is subconscious photoshopping in Genesis.

  16. sagat1 on August 31, 2018 at 6:12 am

    If one believes NASA obfuscates the truth about all and sundry then shouldn’t one also consider that these pictures may not even be produced on Mars but are just of debris and litter from a more earthly desert environment??? Why would they want to share any intel with rival organisations and competitors by releasing any real data for them to analyse. They’re more likely to offer information that leads them up the garden path so as to maintain their competitive advantage.

    • Margaret on August 31, 2018 at 9:35 pm

      I think they would share it because a lot of people don’t get it. It’s like Sasquatch… show them, they do not believe… I think it is the same principal. Most peoples’ mind are quite closed, so they have nothing to loose.

    • Jarret on September 1, 2018 at 4:19 am

      I have wondered the same thing.
      I honestly think that Mars CURRENTLY has a fully breathable atmosphere. It’s just a gut instinct, a hunch. And possibly even some fauna, too.
      One thing that I see as some possible evidence is the size of the drogue ‘chutes used when the landers are decelerated from orbit, down to the surface.
      They should be MUCH MUCH larger then they are, if the atmosphere of Mars is as thin as NASA and other space agencies say it is, as a chute would need to ‘collect’ more of the ‘air’, in order to function properly in a supposedly super thing atmosphere. Instead, they are the same size as would be used in Earth’s atmosphere, or close to it….
