The Star Trek 2001 Mars Rendezvous – An Ode to Roddenberry and Clarke

The photograph analyzed here (B17_016259_2199_XN_39N300W) were taken by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter Context Camera (CTX) Camera on 2010-01-14. NASA describes the photographs as “Protonilus/Nilosyrtis fretted terrain – northern plains transition area.’

This is a tribute to two brilliant men, Eugene Roddenberry, creator of the Star Trek television series and Sir Arthur C. Clarke, author or 2001: A Space Odyssey.

I discovered what looks like the Star Trek Enterprise primary (saucer section) and secondary hulls without warp nacelles parked on the Martian surface and a huge monolith as featured in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The ‘Enterprise’ measures approximately 300 metres across and the ‘monolith’ approximately 2 km long by 300 metres wide.

I just thought this is a great NASA photograph that unwittingly pays homage to two great guys and the awesome legacy they left for us and future generations.

These anomalies featured in my Viewers Special YouTube video in which I gave my viewers an opportunity to let me know what their take on these anomalies are, however only one viewer responded.

Images saved from within HiView or CTX viewer do not include image scale indicators. The image scale indicators I include in images are based on the official resolutions provided by NASA and although I strive to be as accurate as possible there may be slight deviations from the actual scale. Image scale indicators are included as a size approximation tool only.

Ley lines are mapped as accurately as possible using the limited information, data and mapping tools available at the time, therefore the ley lines may deviate from target sites by a few kilometres. Revisions may be made in the future as new, more precise information, data and mapping tools become available.

Many or all of the anomalies/artefacts covered in this presentation may be naturally occurring geological features caused by some type of geological processes, however due to the lack of specific information from the source we can only speculate whether these are all natural or some artificial in nature.

In cases where I say an anomaly looks like something I’m attempting to clarify what I see and not specifically that the anomaly is what I say it looks like.

My intention is only to share anomalies I’ve discovered on Mars and not to convince anyone that there is or was a civilization on Mars.
