Interesting new Mars Images

Attachments : I have not had time to study this in depth – and I just stick with the dome image……   See below for new “HiRise” image.       www.marsanomalyresea…… Many of you around the world have likely seen the above Mars image recently circulating on the Internet and in the various news media. The source of this image is the MRO HiRISE science data and the strip is PSP_007962_2635 found at the above link. The media speculative hook is that the above evidence looks an awful lot like trees on Mars but isn’t really. It’s obviously a beautiful image with its colors and shadings produced at official level (I’m envious) and this visual impact is no doubt one of the main reasons why the media is so readily reporting on it.The official description of what is going on in this image in a brief caption at the image site is as follows. “There is a vast region of sand dunes at high northern latitudes on Mars. In the winter, a layer of carbon dioxide ice covers the dunes, and in the spring as the sun warms the ice it evaporates. This is a very active process, and sand dislodged from the crests of the dunes cascades down, forming dark streaks.” In other words, this evidence looking like upright vertical forms and possibly trees is just an optical illusion.… Also, at the above link, there is a bit more in depth explanation along the same lines where the NASA media mouthpiece interviewed a MRO scientist team member about this. While you’re there be prepared for the usual indoctrination crapola treatment as they stress the “illusion” concept and throw in a few buzz words like “bigfoot,” etc. trying to influence popular perception toward the ridiculous. It is obvious that this evidence is actively being orchestrated into the media and public perception at this time for some unknown reason. After all, this particular MRO image was acquired on 4/7/2008, so why now? A trap? Now my reporting here is not really going to fly in the face of this stated official position too strongly. Rather, I’m going to just be adding some information missing from this official reporting that is none-the-less in my opinion germane to any thinking person’s consideration of this type of evidence.For example, when one examines the so called dune field wider expanse, it soon becomes apparent that the dunes crests/peaks are in various stages of splitting on the top along the dune’s length. This forms a large split depression and it is down in this depression below the level of the dune crest where the objects in question are appearing. On what appears to be the bottom of the individual objects there is a more solid bell shape to the object and then what looks like a vegetative bushy head (top) on the other end and these two ends are connected by what appears to be a solid trunk.It should be noted that the bell shaped “bottom” so often associated with certain trees here on Earth (Cypress come to mind) always seems to be located in the dune crest split depression. This of course reinforces the impression that these are rooted “trees” of some kind. Following are some sample closer images of this evidence that tends to support the look of trees.… My selection of the above 2nd–5th images tend to support the so called “tree” evidence look but they are not definitive in that regard. For example, note that if these are upright vertical formations where are their shadows? The problem is that I do not trust the imaging and suspect the shadows have been removed or at least subdued. Note the 4th image and what I’ve pointed out with the yellow arrows that may be remnant shadows not completely removed.I don’t think that this is the case but do recognize that there is some possibility that the far wall of the depression could be producing dark material that could be pouring down into the depression bottom and piling up there forming a bell like shape at the bottom of each flow. On the other hand, look closely at the 5th image. Note that the bell like base area portions seem to be occupying multiple levels further into the background. This is not consistent with dark material pouring out of a one dimensional back slope but is consistent with these objects being individual free standing formations rising from the depression ground level at different locations.Further, in the 3rd image note what the yellow arrow points out. It clearly appears to be two separate root systems branching down from the same bell shape. This is strong evidence suggesting that the bell shapes are in fact root systems. You should be aware that this kind of smaller detail is likely only going to be available in the larger JP2 imaging. I sourced my images here from the largest JP2 image which is 1,429.8 MB. That image took well over a hour just to download it on a fast Internet connection.The official position is that the so called “dunes” are covered in a layer of ice. Since the official position does not permit contemplation of water ice in an open location like this, then it by default must be carbon dioxide ice. In my examination of the JP2 image and the “dunes,” I will agree that they are covered by ice. In fact, I’m going to suggest that the dunes themselves are ice but that ice is water rather than CO2.So how do I arrive at this conclusion? Because close inspection reveals that ice has a highly reflective wet moisture coating on it and it is very translucent in many large areas. I’m not sure whether CO2 can have that much ice transparency on a planet like Mars but I’m satisfied that highly reflective sheen reflecting strongly off of some dune surfaces is likely moisture. As many of you will know, CO2 in open environs in a warming trend sublimates directly from a solid (ice) to a gas and does not have an intermediate liquid state as does water.If this is water ice, it may just be possible that the loss of Mars’ great seas was so gradual that it allowed some sea life to adapt to open air conditions. Corals, nudibranchia, and sea slugs are examples that come to mind. Maybe some Mars sea creatures of the ancient past where consistent cold environment temperatures permit carry the water around them in the form of a water ice shell combined with soil. Perhaps these dark objects are temporary retractable projections like breathing appendages? It’s speculation but I suspect we’re going to eventually learn that a lot of things we never considered before may be realities on Mars.… Now the above 6th image moves us out of the more densely packed dunes collection area in the same image strip and demonstrates a couple of smaller dunes a little further out in the Polar terrain. Note that these dunes are characterized by having a extended tapering tail on them. Note also that they are showing signs of fissures just forming at the dune crest and continuing down along the dune’s length.The obvious conclusion is that the central fissures may eventually result in a widening split down the partial length of the dune with a depression forming as has happened with nearby dunes in the official colorized image. Note the dark material concentrating the heaviest in the center area of the broadest portion of the dune. It is not hard to imagine these being the site of future broader and thicker upright “tree” formations IF the splitting process continues exposing the inner lower areas of the dune.   Are you interested in what’s really going on in the world, behind the facade?
