David Martines, who calls himself an "astronaut behind the desk", claimed to have found suspicious rectangular structure on the surface of Mars Mars using the Google service. These findings are now spread viral on YouTube.
"I call this structure as the Bio Station Alpha, and I think there are that live in it or at least lived there," Martines said today.
The structure is considered as the building's elongated, white, and fragmented. The building itself is at coordinates 49 '19.73 "llintang north and 29 33' 06.53" west longitude, measuring 213 meters long and 45 meters wide. Martines added, the form of a tube structure.
The findings are considered the building as a residence alien received a rejection from space experts. White structure is more likely due to defects in the image caused by disruption of outer space particles.
"It looks like an artifact caused by cosmic rays straight," says planetary geologist from the Lunar and Planetary Lab at the University of Arizona, Alfred McEwen.
McEwen is principal investigator on the project sensing surface of Mars through the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE). This man used to explore the Red Planet surface image data and often find artifacts like those found Martines.
From that experience, McEwen believes that the white artifacts appear due to cosmic rays fall to chip the camera while taking pictures on the coordinates of the location in question. Consequently, in addition to recording the surface of Mars, the cameras also record the trajectories trace the cosmic particles. "Then the image is compressed so that the artifact is printed kekotak-boxed," he explained.
There are lessons to be drawn from the discovery of the structure of this suspicious. According to McEwen, Google should include information from which a satellite photo on Google Mars taken. Thus, people who are curious as Martines can browse the raw images from trusted sources before identifying image
