Default 'Bigfoot on Mars?'

http://tinyurl.com/2dfj6s

Simulacrum found in Mars imagery that looks remarkably like a still from the famous (and discredited) Paterson-Gimlin film. Surely an entertaining internet debate will follow....

Its just one of techs from the stage crew that's all. "Big foot wandering around Mars looking for his sneakers.... well you need to have sneakers if you're going to slink around everywhere with only a few people ever seeing you don't you."

So, has anyone see the 'virgin mary' spot in the toasted cheese sandwich? Looks more like Barbara Bain.
People see 'things' in images all the time... doesn't mean those things actually are present.

By the way, look up how color images from space probes are actually processed. Unless the 'bigfoot' is a statue remaining perfectly still, this color image would not show 'him' the way it does. A moving 'bigfoot' would be in triplicate, each exposure a different color (red, blue and green).

CR, can I just emphasise that I don't think it's anything but an amusingly-shaped bit of rock?

Fear not Dr Kane we got that. But no no you're both wrong ... its a statue of one. Once these great beings ruled all Mars... this statue by the lake is of one of their greatest fisher-yetties who is remembered for saving the whole region by providing food from the lake during the horrendous dandruff wars.

There were of course a few who were not so great... they were banished to the planet next door. Sadly the whole civilization was wiped out by a terrible explosion at a nuclear powered hair care factory.

Actually, I'm surprised you guys didn't know all this...

Ah, that must have been on Richard "Face on Mars" Hoagland's site, then.

(pause as an idea germinates...)

Saaaay... you could actually beat Hoagland to the punch on this one! Why should he be the only one making money off of completely made up nonsense based upon one blurry photo? The whole 'bigfoot came from Mars' theory could be made to work, not far from what Tony said. Except for the hair care thing... I mean, come on, that's pushing the envelop too far!

Polish it up, Tony. One word: Ka-ching! $$$$

It's all beginning to make sense to me now. The UFO that was witnessed in Texas was Bigfoot's ride to Mars.

Launched from an underwater hangar in Loch Ness, with Elvis as co-pilot.

I see a dog by the black arrow - and a seal halfway from that towards the blue arrow. Well, the heads of these animals anyway...

Lunch perhaps for the yetty that is

Ah the story is out. Nasa cover up... they claim its a piece of rock about 2" high. Someone on a Japanese blog said nice photo, if we cut it and blow it up that rock looks like a little yetty.... lost in translation it became s**t it s a yetty on Mars.

A photo of the "supposed whole picture" I'm sticking to my story though... it'll sell more books... and the merchandising

http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/jpeg/PIA10214.jpg

Enlarge the photo by pressing the little button when it appears in the bottom right hand corner and you'll find it in the bottom left. The area is between the tail fin of the vehicle and the edge of the photo.

Ok so they're little yetties because of the atmosphere. Once exiled to earth they grow huge.

Here's a link to the article about this at Space.com:
http://www.space.com/scienceastronom...tery-mars.html

I find it interesting that so many people, including one I know very well, put so much faith in incredibly blurry photos. That guy still insists that the more recent photos from US and EUROSAC...er I mean...ESA probes are fake, yet a decades old blurry photo from Viking is real!
My son and I used to laugh at the ad for Hougland's book about the Pyramids of Mars, especially when they said he was an EX NASA scientist. Hmm, wonder why?
As a Marshall scientist once said, he sees lots of faces on Mars, and would love to find the real thing...increased funding!

NASAWatch's take on this story is quite funny:

I saw that image over at RPF. Someone had also photoshopped a Jawa in. Must say, the whole photo would be a very cool backdrop for some sci-fi model scenes.

Yeti or not, what a wonderful photo. It's fantastic to wander around the photo in high definition. Familiar, and even so another world. I want to go there. I want. I want. I want!
