Mars Anomaly Research Pathfinder by Eric C. Lausch

Since man first gazed at the heavens Mars has been a source wonder and curiosity. The ancients saw its reddish glow and ascribed ominous portents to our sister planet. With the advent of the telescope scientists were able to resolve the surface of Mars. From the very beginning of modern astronomy researchers recorded unusual items observed on the surface of Mars.

Schiaparelli documented what he termed canalia or channels on Mars in 1877. Percival Lowell recorded this same phenomenon again in 1895 and lectured extensively on the subject.

As technology became more sophisticated, humans sent robotic probes to Mars for closer observations. In the 1970Ôs the Viking program sent back unusual images from an area called Cydonia Mensae, which some postulated were the ruins of an ancient civilization on Mars. In the 1990 as the Mars Global Surveyor imaged thousands of sites on Mars, again returning images of what may be indications of a former high civilization on Mars.

The debate rages today as it did over a hundred years ago. What are we really seeing on Mars? I suppose we won't have a definitive answer until humans actually go there with a shovel.
