NASA: “Bio-Station Alpha and Face on Mars are not artificial structures”
Alfred Lambremont Webre, Seattle Exopolitics Examiner, June 7th, 2011,
NASA continued its active cover-up of life on Mars by confirming today in a written statement to this reporter Alfred Lambremont Webre by NASA officer Dwayne C. Brown, stating that neither Bio-Station Alpha nor the Face on Mars are artificial structures.
The NASA statement, sent at 3:58 pm pdt on June 7, 2011, as NASA’s official comment on Bio Station Alpha states:
“Mars surface images have been thoroughly studied by NASA scientists and researchers worldwide. While NASA applauds the public’s interest and fascination of images of the Red Planet, there’s no scientific evidence or data to confirm a structure on the surface. There was a time that a feature on Mars was widely described as a face on Mars. It turned out to be an eroded mesa when seen in higher resolution.”

Bio-Station Alpha – description on Google Mars
According to international news media, “David Martines was scanning Google Mars when he discovered the long white edifice and has even listed the coordinates (49’19.73″N 29 33’06.53″W) so others can see it for themselves.
“Mr. Martines posted a video of the ‘station’ on YouTube which has been viewed more than 200,000 times.
[Martines has since taken his video offline, and it can be seen at the following URL
“On the video, he talks through the discovery he has named ‘Bio-Station Alpha. ‘It’s very unusual in that it’s quite large, it’s over 700 feet (210m) long and 150 feet (45m) wide. It looks like it’s a cylinder or made up of cylinders,” he says.
“’It could be a power station or it could be a biological containment or it could be a glorified garage — hope it’s not a weapon.
“’I don’t know if NASA even knows about this.’”
HiRISE director: Bio-Station Alpha is pixelization
The principal investigator of HiRISE telescope orbiting Mars says “Bio-Station Alpha” is “simply a glitch in the image caused by cosmic energy interfering with the camera.”
“’It looks like a linear streak artifact produced by a cosmic ray,’ said Alfred McEwen, a planetary geologist at the Lunar and Planetary Lab at the University of Arizona and the director of the Planetary Imaging Research Laboratory. McEwen is the principal investigator of the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE), a powerful telescope currently orbiting Mars.
“Cosmic rays are extremely energetic particles emitted by the sun and other stars. For the most part, the Earth’s protective magnetosphere blocks them from hitting the planet’s surface, McEwen explained. ‘But with space images that are taken outside our magnetosphere, such as those taken by orbiting telescopes, it’s very common to see these cosmic ray hits. You see them on optical images and a lot of the infrared images too,” he told Life’s Little Mysteries.’
“As a cosmic ray passes through a camera’s image sensor, it deposits a large amount of its electric charge in the pixels that it penetrates. If the particle passes through at a shallow angle to the plane of the camera, it affects several pixels along its path. The result is a bright streak on the image.
“’The digital compression software that converts the image into a JPEG file then “sort of smears out the image, giving it that pixelated look,’ McEwen said. What started as a clear streak in high-resolution turns into a streak that, in the armchair astronaut’s words, looks like it is ‘made up of cylinders.’”
“McEwen said that the cosmic ray streak would be much easier to recognize in the raw, pre-compressed image, but many orbiters and telescopes have contributed imagery to create the Mars map, and Google doesn’t identify the source image.
“’I can’t tell whether this image was taken by Viking or what,’ McEwen said. ‘The people at Google need to document what the heck they’re doing. They should be able to identify what the source of their information is, and let people know so they can go back and look at the raw data.’”
Continuing Life on Mars coverup – NASA stating Face on Mars is not artificial structure
By linking Bio-Station Alpha and the Face on Mars and denying publicly that the Face on Mars is an artificial structure, NASA is continuing its coverup of both ancient and current indigenous life on Mars.
In an article on the huge, simian visage found in the Cydonia region of Mars known as The Face on Mars, the late Dr. Tom van Flandern, former chief astronomer of the U.S. Naval Observatory, concluded that the probability that The Face on Mars is an artificial structure exceeds “a thousand billion billion to one.”
A “New Cydonia” of ancient extraterrestrial monuments found on Mars
A major, new complex of massive, ancient terra-forms has been found in the Reull Vallis of Mars. The monuments were photographed by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) onboard the Mars Orbiter Express of the European Space Agency (ESA) on January 15, 2004 from a height of 170 miles above the surface of Mars.
The Reull Vallis site includes at least nine striking statues of human and animal faces clearly visible from space, including very large ground drawings featuring the profiles of primates and canines. Like the long-heralded Cydonia site, this intriguing new site also contains a large, pyramid-shaped landform that can be seen at the right bottom of the ESA photograph, where the channel of the Ruell Vallis turns and flows to the south.
The Face on Mars at Cydonia now has nine exquisite companions
Andrew D. Basiago, 47, president of the Mars Anomaly Research Society (MARS), made the finding in the ESA photograph captioned SEMBY9474OD. Basiago has termed the complex “New Cydonia” after the location of The Face on Mars that was discovered by Vincent DiPietro and Gregory Molenaar, two computer engineers at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center while searching through NASA archives in 1976.
Basiago’s discovery of the new location, which strongly supports the notion that The Face on Mars at Cydonia is an artificial object, is described in an eight-page report containing textual analysis and photographs entitled “Ancient Terra-forms found in the Reull Vallis of Mars” that is available at www.exopolitics.com by clicking here (PDF).
The D&M Pyramid reinterpreted
Basiago has termed the large, pyramidal land form that can be seen at the right bottom of the ESA photograph the “D&M II Pyramid” after the “D&M Pyramid” that was found adjacent to the “The Face on Mars” site at Cydonia by DiPietro and Molenaar in 1976. “D&M” refers to the initials in DiPietro and Molenaar’s last names.
In his report on the New Cydonia, Basiago observes:
“Like the D&M Pyramid, the D&M II Pyramid found at Ruell Vallis is not quite a pyramid but rather an irregular, four-sided mound biased sharply towards the northwest. One seems to possess a face, the other the long arms and legs and head of an anthropomorphic figure. These similarities seem to imply that these land forms are not pyramids at all but rather terra-forms that are… examples of the Martian propensity to craft natural land forms into works of art featuring the faces of humans and animals.
“D&M II seems to be a massive face that has weathered,” he continues. “There are smaller terra-formed faces immediately southeast of it and at a greater distance northeast of it. These findings tend to support the conclusion that it is another face and not a pyramid. I have long suspected that the D&M Pyramid is not a pyramid but instead a terra-form featuring a stick figure like a human child on Earth might draw.”
Martian orb craters at New Cydonia
The MARS report also identifies an apparent ancient Martian art form – the “orb crater.”
The report states:
“Ruell Vallis is a place where there are apparent craters inside of which humanoid faces have been sculpted. The irregular rims of these craters reveal that they are not the result of impacts by objects from space but rather have resulted from the act of creating the faces themselves. These art objects, which Basiago has named orb craters, are numerous in the ESA image.
“Paranormal researchers will recognize in these works of art the faces found inside of orbs in the orbs phenomenon on Earth. Faces like these are sometimes found staring silently out from the orbs that are captured by digital cameras. The ubiquitous nature of these land forms in the vicinity of Ruell Vallis indicates how… the surface of Mars has been terra-formed into works of art that show a child-like simplicity and spontaneity.”
One of these orb craters can be seen on the neck of a large terra-form featuring a barking dog lunging toward the channel of the Ruell Vallis.
Three Martian civilizations: Ancient, modern surface, and modern underground
With these findings of the New Cydonia complex at Reull Vallis, Andrew D. Basiago’s discoveries have now extended to three categories of intelligent civilization on Mars – ancient, modern surface, and modern underground Martian civilizations.
Basiago sees a Mars-Egypt connection in the artifacts comprising the New Cydonia. The MARS report states, “This is one of a growing array of artifacts… found on Mars that establish the connection between Ancient Egypt and Ancient Mars, suggesting that in antiquity one was the colony of the other.”
“My speculation is that Ancient Mars was a colony of Ancient Egypt, rather than vice versa. I say this because Earth had the abundant biosphere that could have sustained ancient civilization in its attempt to reach Mars. The Great Pyramid at Giza and the Great Platform at Baalbek, which may have been an ancient launch pad, may be evidence of this effort. I find it far less compelling that human beings on Mars reached Earth first, given Mars’ far less fertile environment. The human beings on Mars are probably the descendants of colonists from Earth, separated from us by the solar system catastrophe of 9,500 BC.”
In 2008, Basiago published a paper entitled The Discovery of Life on Mars that contains analysis and photographs of humanoid and animal species living on the surface of Mars, as well as many ancient Martian artifacts, that he found in NASA photograph PIA10214, which was taken by the US space agency’s Mars Rover Spirit in 2007.

MARS’ report on the New Cydonia complex at Reull Vallis was released on July 20, 2009 to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the lunar landing by NASA’s Apollo 11.
In a related article on the huge, simian visage found in the Cydonia region of Mars known as The Face on Mars, the late Dr. Tom van Flandern, former chief astronomer of the U.S. Naval Observatory, concluded that the probability that The Face on Mars is an artificial structure exceeds “a thousand billion billion to one.”
Van Flandern wrote:
“In [the image of The Face on Mars], it is possible to see details in the image (once the right correspondence to the Viking image is recognized) that might have been intended to portray each secondary facial feature – eyebrow, pupil, nostrils, and lips. These are more plainly visible in higher-magnification views with brightness and contrast adjusted for each area because of the limited contrast in the image. Such views may be inspected at in the Cydonia section. Detailed study with image processing software shows that these secondary facial features exist where expected by the artificiality hypothesis, but nowhere else on the mesa. This rules out a background of many similar features from which we might pick out just ones that fulfill our expectations. Moreover, each feature is present at the expected location, having the expected size, shape, and orientation. The odds are against any of these features arising by chance, and against each feature having any of the four listed characteristics. Each of these probabilities has been carefully and conservatively estimated in a fuller treatment of this topic. The combined odds against all of these features being present and having all expected characteristics to the degree actually present, when taken together with the absence of similar features in the background, exceed a thousand billion billion to one.”
