Search gigapan for "MARSOPTICA" for Mars research work, NEW watch and enjoy my new youtube video spotlighting Quadrata Martis, click below
Please use the snapshot feature to read observational analysis comments and to automatically zoom you to very interesting items of mystery T.Y.
NEW Superb Tilted image with double scaling to better display the square and rectangular plots that are aligned to the axial tilt of Mars.
Image Scale exactly 4 km across X 3.5 km deep
(ideal rover sized roaming area), highest rock faces approx 15-20 metres.
"I was keeping this greater discovery a secret along with its location on Mars but its too important to keep to myself so I hope you all enjoy it and that it gets the coverage and scientific investigation it truly deserves"
Discovery location and official NASA image
Data source NASA IR Mars Imaging(PSP_007781_1410)
Mars; Lat: -38.4° Long: 55.8°
Here I have published a large image that can be zoomed into to reveal the amazing squares that have been etched into the surface that surpass in detail, size and numbers the famous NASA named Inca fields found recently at the polar region of Mars that had similar intelligent design though the rectangular plots that can be viewed in this image are stunning and the best
to my mind mystery yet concerning Mars Images
of this once much wetter and warmer landscape.
There is also many indications of past hydration and other areas with what appear to be remains of a lot of unknown surface activity and central much denser areas there were likely important hubs to this most ancient metropolis of Mars but I am not certain if this is simply remains of foundational material or an underground network of tubes and subways or both! Also there are signs of great flooding or glaciation that destroyed this area along with draughts and permafrost that ended the reign of this particular species, or did it?
Also if you check out the snapshots there are
islands that have different road ways that
connect with major routes that probably marked
areas of farmed wetlands and possible areas of dwellings with a central, busier looking area and some of the details to say this is infra-red imagery are full of evidence of all manner of great scientific discovery that really do need looking into so forget Mt Sharp for now and say hello to down town Quadrata Martis, Hellas Planitia, Mars.
I suspect that an advanced semi-aquatic species
that had high intelligence and acted socially
evolved to manage flood plains to farm forms
of creatures that lived in this flood basin
and although limited in terms of mobility they
were highly creative and organised.
This area would of been the perfect landing
spot for the Curiosity rover and has rocky outcrop islands that could of been investigated along with many important clues to Mars past and the current Rover mission to my mind is although a great triumph, is much too difficult an objective to traverse many dangerous sand dune areas and climb a mountain considering also that this area was the last place on Mars
that could of supported water at the Hellas Planitia super crater system!
I had to adjust the colour curves slightly and
colourise the image to give it a realistic and
more natural tone as the source is Infra-red photography from one on NASAs great archives
and I cant believe how beautiful the detail
is and surely this proves that there are very
ancient ruins of past cultures on Mars if we
bother to look carefully and investigate them with open eyes and minds and its time to send the archaeologists into the culture of astrophysics and lets see what they make of this outstanding data.

Well I have studied these squares or polygons for quite some time now, comparing possible glacial or geological knowledge of Earth that might explain them and I can find no other evidence of this being found before
so I decided to look at any evidence within the
design and construction of these oddities to see what I could discover.
Observed data anomalies
The borders of the polygons consist of groves
that are mostly straight that are created by
a series of nibble effects in that they
are not pure groves but joined up pits
in the surface!
The pits start at no less then four foot in diameter and can range up to approx forty foot
but many show signs of wind erosion as they are very smooth so they have probably grown in size over time.
The border lines very rarely do not join up with another line but will incredibly sometimes turn roughly 90 degrees to join up with a closed shape before meeting a neighbouring line!
Many polygons would require a level of intelligence to construct in order to complete a closed shape for instance deviating around bumps in the surface then continuing in line creating a three sided trapezium in effect
on the border line and also all ninety degree corners that are made form two lines, created a perfect closed polygon
There is a strong relationship between the size of some larger pitting that occurs in complete sides and the area size of the polygon and these larger polygons have evidence of past pitting that implies they have grown in area size taking over past parts of borders or complete adjacent polygons to become larger!
