So, yeah. 71 49 19.73n 29 33 06.53w in Google Mars if you want to see it yourself. What do you think it is?

    Either a data glitch that is several pixels long or a secret (likely American) base.

    Saying it is “well maintained” is a tad presumptuous. The pixels are nicely square? Is that how that is judged?

    Bio-containment? As in a container to keep a living thing in? Like my apartment?

    I have often wished that one day a president would come out and say: “You know that massive debt we ran up over decades? It turns out we weren’t just frittering all the cash away on corruption, pork and fostering dependency. 10% of it was being used for Mars base. We knew the funding would never survive recession budget cuts over the years and we wanted to keep it quiet in case thing got screwed up but… Surprise!!!”

    But I don’t think that will happen and this is definately not it.

    Google’s Secret Mars Base. “SpaceX, Tell us when you get the price of a mission down” my ass. Google has been building this thing since they IPO’d.

    What I love about this is that it look one hundred times more artificial than the Face, the Inca City, the pyramids, or any of the other “structures” on Mars.

    The only problem is that we can’t tell if it’s actually something on the surface, or just something in a lower orbit that happened to be in frame when the pic was taken. Perhaps it could just another satellite sent from earth, or maybe even a micro meteor.

    I found an interesting “object” in Google Mars. Search for “Bonneville
    Crater” and enter the panorama, be sure to orient facing NW before
    clicking the panorama, and the object will be straight across. Looks
    metallic and is NOT from the Spirit rover from which this panorama was
    taken. It cannot be seen from satellite view, only in the panorama.

    That’s actually quite interesting, but did you mean NW or NE? There is clearly something artificial to the NE on the crater rim(which can be seen in the satellite view). But there is also a speck of light to the NW, that looks like sun glare off of something metallic.

    If you connect the dots, it seems to point towards where Spirit landed. It seems like it could be a debris field, perhaps from the craft that delivered the rover. Although it’s hard to pin down that second point, and it’s a big universe out there, so no one can really be sure of anything.
