One more reason I enjoy Fark comments, excellent fact checking. I always read the comments before subscribing to any of the DERP! Conspiracy!

AdolfOliverPanties: There's a link on that YouTube page that leads to a vid of Buzz Aldrin talking about developing the moon. Then he mentions a monolith on one of the moons of Mars. WTF?


At the end of this vid (new window)


I'm a little late to the party so someone has probably already answered this but.... There is a "monolith" on one of the moons. Well kind of like there is a "face" on Mars. It's in the eye of the beholder. To me it looks like a big rock. (if someone hasn't already done so, I'll try to track down a photo.) All Buzz is trying to say is it would be cool to check it out. Of course Buzz is rooting for a manned mission but AFAIAC it is just a good but much cheaper to do it with robots. To me most manned missions are wasteful and foolishly risky.

/Left disappointed


YOU'RE disappointed? It's in orbit around a gas giant and as of this post there are 60 comments and I, I have to be the one to say that

That's no moon.

Sheesh, Farkers! WTF?

I read the posts by AdolfOliverPanties, and I think "cool!"

But my excitement is short-lived because of things like morons taking his bait.

They photoshopped the sun out, so of course it's dark now...

More seriously: Everyone should know by now the images NASA releases are processed, because they are taken for scientific and not aesthetic purposes. To make them pretty for the public, tweaking is required.


Oh for fark's sake.

Don't be a buzzkill.

Get it? Buzz? As in Aldrin or Lightyear? Hi-farking-larity just ensued. I hope you bore witness to it.

Darn it, I told the other Alien Cover Up Specialist that we should just destroy that photo of the inter-dimensional whore house. "No... this will be funny," they said. "We'll just do a crappy job of photoshopping it out and post it anyway. No one could possibly be brilliant enough to figure out our clever ruse."

\Obviously, they did not count on the genius of the YouTube/PS3 community.

It's more fun to believe there's a conspiracy theory that can't be disproven...

Unless they release the original unedited three moon image.

And Fark will add a motherfarking wolf to it.

He mentioned it because it is of geological interest.

"The general vicinity of the monolith is a proposed landing site for a Canadian Space Agency vehicle, funded by Optech and the Mars Institute, for an unmanned mission to Phobos known as PRIME (Phobos Reconnaissance and International Mars Exploration)."

I'll give you unexplainable celestial objects!


SATURN's NORTH POLE:

Nobody has a CLUE what this is. It is rotating at the speed of the planet, not at the speed of the cloud cover. It's the largest geometrical object we've EVER seen. And we have no idea what it is. Oh, and Saturn's SOUTH pole? Is a stationary hurricane thousands of mile across.

We don't need to make stuff up. We can't even understand what we've already found.

Boo?


No, no, no. One of Boo's distant cousins, perhaps. Boo is a *miniature* giant space hamster, and obviously far too small to be seen in that picture. However, one might be able to see a rather large specimen of the regular giant space hamster variety.

Only dumb people think that the pics they see there are the raw pics. I think somebody already said that here, but it can't be stressed enough. Dumb people are dumb.

It always shocks me whenever I see that Canada has a space agency.

They should name it NASA Jr.

Came into this thread for the Gaea reference.

Read over 80 comments, and found nothing. -_-

But, I refuse to leave disappointed:

These sort of weird shapes sometimes show up on other satellite based imagery. They are indeed a result of the RGB filter process as described earlier in the thread. Here is an example I found in ArcGis Explorer imagery of Arizona.

It's sad. Science is pretty cool on it's own, but then you get folks just plain making shiat up because they can't keep up with the (usually slow, methodical) scientific advances that come after the "oh wow" instances. Oh well.


Thanks - nice link to the hexagon (and other shapes) science.

Man... So freaking believable...

I mean it's not like we have brazillions of independent amateur astronomers that have powerful enough telescopes to gaze at Saturn every freaking day... If we did I'll bet they would confirm this alien cover up.

The same geometric formations can be observed in hurricanes on our own planet. And?

OMG the little white speck on the red filter images PROVES UFOs are real!1!1!!

Just kidding, it really is fascinating to see how far the objects can move between each image. And the blog at planetary.org is great reading, by the way! Been following it for years.
