Mystery on Mars

The Cydonia region on Mars has been surrounded by mystery and controversy. In 1976 the Viking satellites took pictures of structures in this area that resemble a human head and pyramid-like structures on the surface. While NASA scientists dismisses the resemblance as coincidence many others suggest that this might be evidence of some kind of civilization on Mars. On Google Earth the area of Cydonia is blurred and the areas containing the pyramids and the face are replaced with black and white images that do notresemble what the original pictures look like.

In October of 1988 the Soviet Union sent 2 unmanned space craft, Phobos 1 and 2, named after one of the martian moons. Phobos 1 was lost on its way to wars but Phobos two arrives to the orbit of Mars and began to send pictures back to earth. After taking mysterious pictures of several anomalies in Mars surface the satellite abruptly went offline. Soviet scientists revealed that the last picture taken by Phobos 2 revealed an object that “should not have been there,” in the vicinity of the Mars moon Phobos.

US Astronaut Buzz Aldrin pointed out in a televised interview that on the Martian moon, Phobos, lies a monolith erected by an unknown entity.


In November of 2011 the Russians attempted to send a second satellite to Mars to bring back sample from its moon Phobos. Soon after launch the satellite, Phobos Grunt, encounter problems and the rocket burns intended to set the craft on a course for Mars failed, leaving it stranded in low Earth orbit.
