Martian Atmosphere

Incredibly, there is a pattern of evidence showing that NASA/JPL have lied to us about the density of the Martian atmosphere. They claim that at the mean surface level it is less than one percent of Earth's sea level atmospheric density. If this was true, the sky seen from the surface of Mars would be black...yet in some pictures (where the color wheel on the lander is not distorted) it is light blue...indicating a fairly dense, thick atmosphere. On others (where the colors on the wheel are way off) the sky is pink. NASA says this is due to dust suspended in the air...but, even with the low Martian gravity, such thin air could not suspend enough dust to have any effect. Such thin air could produce, at most, the faintest wisps of clouds, but orbiter and lander pictures show, at times, large cloud masses and overcast skies. Liquid water cannot exist at under one percent of our sea level pressure; ice, when warmed, would sublimate directly into water vapor. But several official orbiter pictures show large, deep melt water ponds, with small chunks of ice floating on the surface. Nor could such thin air produce the dust devils that have been photographed, nor the planet wide dust storms that are higher than Olympus Mons, where the air is even thinner. Finally, the lander parachutes would not function in such thin air (yet they, too, are opened miles above the surface). Remember that the men who parachuted from balloons over 20 miles above the Earth had to fall for miles before opening their parachutes.

Mission to Mars UCL

We are a team of 6 students from the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) and we are taking part in a research project developed by the Mars Society. It consists in a realistic simulation of a scientific mission on Mars in a space-analog base in the Utah desert. We will conduct a series of experiments to test equipment and scientific protocols in martian living conditions in the Utah desert. The main goal of this mission is to identify all the difficulties that scientists would have to face while caring out their experiments on Mars. Furthermore, the result of our experiments will be used afterward in a didactic way or even published for some of our research project. A description of those projects can be found in the annex below.

Thereby, the Mars Society aim is to promote Mars exploration among the general public and to the governments through intensive lobbying and trough concrete scientific and technical projects. One of its main projects is the Desert Research Station (MDRS) in which we are going to participate. In practice, each participating team will carry out experiments and will test different aspects of the astronauts' everyday life : habitat ergonomics, community life, technical difficulties, freeze-dried food, etc. A report of these experiments will be written in order to improve different aspects of the base, of the equipment and of the experimental protocols. Thus this project has a real practical significance since our results will be taken into account for a future mission on Mars !

Then we are looking for a financial contribution by an Indiegogo campagne.

Thank you for the help.

google mars

I didn't find a pyramid but I did find a perfect square on the mars surface big enough to be a pyramid base.I found it looking at the infrared setting on google mars.will get pic as soon as I can.till then I ask others to look for it please.

Chemonuclear Fusion Propulsion

They dont have a really fast propulsion system like nuclear fusion powered rockets. People on the way will be exposed to so much radiation they will surely get cancer!

Chemonuclear Fusion is a type of low energy nuclear fusion that has been shown to produce energy in two experiments. Aneutronic nuclear fusion can provide unlimited electric power without polluting the environment with radioactive waste and greenhouse emissions. Chemonuclear processes in small dense white dwarf stars accelerate the rate of nuclear fusion and cause them to explode in spectacular supernova explosions.

The mission of the Chemonuclear Fusion Project is to raise awareness of this new and vitally important source of environmentally clean energy and to promote research and development.

The Chemonuclear Fusion Project is soliciting volunteers to help our crowdfunding and educational campaigns. Our crowdfunding webpages will soon be up and running. We want people to post to discussion groups and help us get the word out that aneutronic chemonuclear fusion might be the radiation free way to power the world if we can get the funding to build and test reactors.

Artists can help us design T-shirts, mugs, and promotional items to sell and give away to our contributors. Writers to write promotional materials and post to web forums are also wanted. Video producers and professional and amateur scientists who can help the public understand the concepts of chemonuclear fusion are encouraged to contact us also.

Visit our facebook page and give us a like. We welcome your comments and questions!

c/2012 a1 near miss with mars

I would like discuss a lot of things about this, there is a lot about sliding spring we don't know about, but yet its journey is coming to our neck of the woods with a near miss with mars less than half the distance our moon is from earth, what do you all expect?

countless traces of life on MARS

I had one anaglyph movie reconstructed
The point is
"Doubly-Terraced Elongated Crater in Arcadia Planitia"
ESP_036917_2210 (Image: NASA/JPL/University of Arizona).

Since the original anaglyph is very difficult to watch in stereo when enlarged.
As a result, surprising scenery has been in sight.

Now this is WILD!

h>>>you might want to have some fun!

Just browsing the web and happened on this site.

I am exasperated at what is out there.

How To Post

Is there a topic anywhere here that shows how to post things like links and images in the way this forum software like it done?
