Railway Station on Mars
According to Joseph Skipper an American researcher, there appears to be what looks like a railway track, station and even a railway car on Mars.
Joseph Skipper, a virtual archeologist is well known for his close scrutiny of high resolution Google Mars maps and this time claims to have found a complete transport system.
The tracks that seem to stretch for 900km end close to Gale crater.
Near the end of the track, there is what appears to be a cluster of buildings which Skipper speculates could be a railway station.
On the tracks, near to the “station” is an object that is square shaped. Skipper’s speculation suggests that this could be a railway carriage.
- Water on Mars: What Could it Mean?
Now that water has been found on Mars, will this lead to us mining the planet? Or will we find that aliens have beaten us to it?
Skipper’s speculations have, of course, drawn many skeptics.
There is apparently no doubt that a dash line does appear on the satellite images. However the skeptics believe that Skipper is perhaps stretching the imagination in calling the line a railway track.
As yet though, scientists have not been able to come up with any other theories on what this line may represent.
Neither have any other scientists speculated as to what the apparent railway station or railway carriage could in fact be.
If Skipper is mistaken, then what are these objects that can be seen on the images?
Nature alone is not renowned for working in straight lines or squares, so what caused these shapes?
Is it mere co-incidence that in NASA’s continuing search for water and life on Mars, that they have selected Gale crater for their next Mars Rover mission?
Do they perhaps share Skipper’s speculations that there is a railway station on Mars or at least have these findings sparked extra interest?
- Atlantis Was on Mars
In Switzerland in 2009, a group of scientists announced that they had proof that the ancient Egyptians had contact with Martians. Why is it that other scientists, attending the announcement, were not surprised?
- Are Alien Android Servants Watching Us?
In some of the stories of aliens, our ancestors mention the aliens being accompanied by robots. We have scoured nearby planets for signs of life but have we looked for robot activity?
- The Moon Landings Were a Hoax
When only two men landed on the Moon and they can clearly be seen in the photo, who took the photo. This and other details are leading some to think the Lunar landings were a hoax.
- Mining the Asteroids
When scientists study the asteroids, one of the things they look for are minerals. What if the asteroids have already been mined?
