The discovery of new startling features on Mars that holds intriguing implications for the possibility of Life on Mars, was recently reported by U.S. government scientists. It could also corroborate an aspect of Zecharia Sitchin’s writings - that a leading “ancient astronaut” was buried on that planet.
A team of scientists from the United States Geological Survey reported at the recent annual Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in Houston, Texas, that images taken by NASA’s Mars-orbiting spacecraft Mars Odyssey show what appear to be cave entrances where primitive life forms – “past or present microbial life” – could have been sheltered, and where water could exist in liquid form.
A more detailed perusal of the report reveals that the spacecraft actually photographed, in both visual and infrared, puzzling dark circular structures associated with these caves - structures ranging in size from 100 to 250 meters (330 to 825 feet).
Picking up the hardly-noticed story in its June 2007 issue, the prestigious journal Scientific American has now provided additional information: Seven such “football size” caverns were identified; they are 425 feet deep. They could “serve as havens from radiation on the surface and so would be the most likely areas to harbor life.” The journal then added that the caverns “could also accumulate ice, which could support future human exploration” (by astronauts from Earth).
And then Scientific American augmented the report’s intriguing aspects by headlining the story MARTIAN CAVE DWELLINGS:
“Cave dwellings” for microbes?? Or does the journal envision shelters for real astronauts?
