What's up with all the Coin like finds on Mars? posted on Sep, 13 2010 @ 05:44 PM Originally posted by Irish Matador I really like the picture you coloured. Makes it look like an authentic coin. I think I even see a face What are your own thoughts on these? Well I called them 'coins' because that is the going word on the internet and better not to confuse images. «Mars-500» project 4th of November 2011 is the finish of the experiment on simulation of a manned flight to Mars (“Mars-500” project). After the exit out of the experimental facility six crewmembers will be in observation regime (without a possibility to communicate with media), during which they will pass a thorough medical examination. Completion of the experiment and the crew exit out of the facility will be transmitted on-line through the satellite. In the case of any questions, related to the technical issues and parametres of providing a signal (the signal itself is free) please, contact to senior Planning Manager of the RT channel Murat Gavasheli (tel.:+79152183354). Press-conference with the participation of crewmembers and the project management will be held on 8th of October 2011, at 12.00, in the conference-hall of Russian news and information agency “RIA-Novosti” (Moscow), and we invite media to this event. Here are phone numbers for media accreditation in “RIA-Novosti”: +7(495)637-5019.

multimedia A team of astronomers is puzzling over an unprecedented discovery–the first ever observed asteroid with its own ring system. The asteroid Chariklo, which is 250 km in diameter and orbits between Saturn and Uranus, displays two rings which are said … Continue reading Astrophysicists using the Submillimeter Array Telepscope have made an astonishing discovery on the formation of stars. The scientists obtained the most detailed images yet of a stellar nursery within the Snake Nebula. NASA Curiosity Rover To Drill First Martian Sandstone 'Windjana' : Science By Rebekah Marcarelli | Apr 27, 2014 02:48 PM EDT "NASA's Curiosity Mars rover has driven within robotic-arm's reach of the sandstone slab at the center of this April 23 view from the rover's Mast Camera. The rover team plans to have Curiosity examine a target patch on the rock, called "Windjana," to aid a decision about whether to drill there." (Photo : NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS) NASA's Curiosity rover is set to inspect a slab of sandstone that could be a potential drilling target.

The Mounds of Cydonia The so-called mounds in the Cydonia region of Mars are certain formations which were first pointed out by Richard C. Hoagland. Among the many triangles that Hoagland indicates in his diagram of the Geometry of Cydonia, several of them have their vertices contained within these mounds. Hoagland points out that one of these triangles seems to be equilateral. (In his diagram, it's the small triangle to the very left, indicated by three A's for its angles.

Mission to Mars Mars has a reddish-orange color caused by the iron-rich minerals in its soil. A fine-grained reddish dust blankets the planet and can be lifted into the atmosphere when blown by the wind. Martian dust storms range from small " dust devils " to an occasional spectacular event that shrouds the entire planet for months.

Contrary to the accepted geological approaches to explain Mars' surface, which use the Earth and the Moon as models, Talbott explains that the radical surface features of Mars are due to massive electrical discharging, according to the plasmic model of the universe, an "alternative" (non-big bang) cosmology, of which he is a very active proponent.

Tomorrow's cities: Do you want to live in a smart city? How do you fancy living in a city with which you can interact? A city that acts more like a living organism, a city that can respond to your needs. Around the world such cities are already being built, from Masdar in Abu Dhabi to Songdo in South Korea. Now the chaotic city near you may be in line for a makeover. In the future everything in a city, from the electricity grid, to the sewer pipes to roads, buildings and cars will be connected to the network.

Blue Mars « Electric Archaeology: Digital Media for Learning and Research The topic of virtual worlds for archaeology and history seems to have hit a bit of a lull in recent months; on the other hand, that could simply be because I haven’t been looking. This morning, in preparing for my talk to the WAGenesis developer community, I came across Blue Mars, an online virtual world whose tools would appear to be more useful than those in Second Life, in that you can import your meshes, grids, etc from common 3d modeling programs. For archaeologists with a lot of 3d CAD reconstructions, this could be quite a boon. You can even import topographic maps into Blue Mars, and so recreate not just the buildings, but the landscapes.
