Mars, the red planet, has always fascinated mankind. For centuries have we pondered about the possibility if there is life on Mars, or if there ever was?
Now, the Cydonia Institute for Martian research has released more stunning images of supposed artificial structures on the Martian Surface, which make us question everything we have been taught about Mars in the past.
From Pyramidal structures to enigmatic shapes on the Martian surface that hints at possible intelligent design, Mars may have been the home of an advanced civilization billions of years ago.
Their latest discovery was presented by Founding investigator, George Haas, and geoscientist Bill Saunders who talked about the artificial structures and how SETI researchers acknowledge their findings in a recent interview with coast-to-coast.
A Three-sided Pyramid on Mars
As noted by experts in their study (click here) there is a three-sided pyramidal formation in the Candor Chasma region of Mars.
The formation is clearly seen in five NASA images snapped by the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) and Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) spacecraft.
In the study, Haas, Sunders, Miller, and Dale suggest the images from Mars reveal defining aspects of the formations three-sided Reuleaux geometry, exposing a uniform symmetry in its three, triangular faces.
A Pyramid on Mars, the result of intelligent design?
The idea that Mars was inhabited in the distant past by intelligent civilizations has captivated the imagination of countless philosophers in ancient times, and scientists in modern times.
Now, as technology evolves and as we have the opportunity to explore Mars like never before, we are seeing ‘structures’ on Mars that question whether or not we are alone in the universe.
In the study, a geologist and a geoscientist examine natural mechanisms that could contribute to the creation of the pyramidal formation and a claim of intelligent construction is proposed.
An extensive search of comparable regions within and beyond the area of Candor Chasma was conducted and terrestrial comparisons are also offered.
In fact, the Pyramid investigated by researchers from the Cydonia Institute caught the attention of world-renowned astronomer Carl Sagan more than 40 years ago.
Sagan, intrigued by the shape of the pyramidal structure on Mars, decided to present the image at the Royal Institution in London during his Christmas Lecture in 1977.
Furthermore, Sagan also featured the image in his 1980 book and television series Cosmos in which he made the following comment;
“The largest Mars Pyramids have a base width of 3 km and a height of 1 km, so they are much larger than the Pyramids of Sumer, Egypt, and Mexico. With the ancient eroded shape, they could be small hills, sandblasted for centuries, but they need to be viewed from nearby.”
Researchers conclude in their study: “We contend that the structural form of this three-sided pyramid observed within the western region of Candor Chasma is real and exhibits a level of geometry and symmetry that supports a high probability of artificial origins. We recommend that both NASA and the imaging team at the University of Arizona direct the current Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) spacecraft acquire addition images of this anomalous surface feature.”
