SURPRISE! IT’S OFFICIAL! THE MARS DOORWAY IS NOT A DOOR!
The professionalism and expertise of our...er...uhm... professional and expert classes always amazes me, particularly with how quickly they can find explanations for things. Why, within a couple of hours, the whole 9/11 plot was unfolded when the media informed us that Bin Laden did it. Within mere minutes, Lee Harvey Oswald was apprehended by the Dallas police in a movie theater. No sooner than the Face on Mars had been photographed than it was deduced that it was all a trick of light and shadow. No, that was not a UFO that you saw, in spite of its glowing, beeping nature, metallic appearance, and physics-defying maneuvers. It was merely swamp gas, the flatulence of methane from gassy stagnant water.
Well, it should come as no surprise then that that strange picture of a doorway, or bunker entrance, or whatever it was on Mars has a perfectly natural explanation (article courtesy of V.T. with our thanks):
The doorway, we're being told, is a perfectly natural occurrence, and not only that, it's really small:
There are two explanations; it's a small, naturally occurring rectangular gap, and it's a tiny, naturally occurring rectangular gap.
Professor Sanjeev Gupta at Imperial College London told the Daily Telegraph that it's even smaller - measuring roughly 30cm by 45cm. (11" x 17"), and caused by small fractures in the rock.
"There are linear fractures throughout this outcrop, and this is a location where several linear fractures happen to intersect," according to the scientists.
One can also look at the surrounding area via gigapan, where a similar 'cave door' can be seen to the left.
Well, gee guys, thanks so much for clearing that up.
Except, wait a minute. Maybe you noticed this helpful picture which helps to clarify the smallness and complete naturalness of the "bunker entrance":
You'll note our big fissure featre that I commented about, and then of course the "bunker entrance" in the right middle of the picture. But now note above that a long linear feature, running perpendicular to the fissure. That's "perfectly natural" looking too.
I'm so relieved that all of this is perfectly natural and that there's nothing really to see here.
And I'm so relieved that the French scientist made a little joke about Martians being really short.
Of course, if you've been following Mars lately, you'll have also noticed the story about Dr. John Brandenburg having been given permission to talk about nuclear explosions on Mars, and that they were not natural events...
So, sorry guys, I'm not buying the magic bullet, I'm not buying the swamp gas, I'm not buying Bin laden, and I'm not buying that all this is just completely natural either.
See you on the flip side...
