A cleanly cut “entrance” heading toward a rocky surface is spotted in a newly released image of Mars by NASA taken by the Curiosity rover.
Controversy has spread among space enthusiasts and conspiracy theorists over what could be inside the entrance or whether it was just a natural feature in the rock.
The grainy image was taken by the Explorer’s Mast Camera or “Mastcam” on Sol 3466 (May 7), and the grainy image appears to show a hole with a distant boulder in it. daily log.
There has been no official explanation from the US space agency about the entrance, but that hasn’t stopped the debate online about exactly what it appears.
One social media user described the scene as “a formation on Mars that appears to be a gateway and a nearby wall that looks artificial.”
Another concluded, “I swear to God, there are at least five Martians in disguise out there.”
However, others were “modest” with one Reddit user saying: “It’s obviously not a small door, it’s just a flat piece of broken rock.”
The discovery comes as the US Congress holds an open hearing next Tuesday on UFOs for the first time in more than 50 years.
The topic will be addressed by the Subcommittee on Counterterrorism, Intelligence, and Counterproliferation of the House Intelligence Committee.
The committee chair, Representative Andre Carson, stated that “the American people expect and deserve their leaders in government and intelligence to assess and respond to any potential national security risks — especially those we don’t fully understand.”
The US government released a report of documented cases of so-called Unidentified Atmospheric Phenomena (UAP) in the summer of 2021.
In it, the Director of National Intelligence examined 144 cases of UFOs, but could only explain one.
Meanwhile, on Thursday, scientists provided the first look at a supermassive black hole devouring any matter within its massive gravity and located at the center of our Milky Way galaxy.
The black hole – called Sagittarius A* or Sgr A* – is the second hole ever photographed.
This feat was accomplished by the same international collaboration Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) that in 2019 revealed the first image of a black hole – that image in the heart of a different galaxy.
At a press conference in Washington, University of Arizona astronomer Ferial Azel hailed the “first direct image of the gentle giant at the center of our galaxy,” showing a glowing ring of red, yellow and white surrounding a darker center.
Sagittarius A* (dubbed the Sagittarius ‘A’ star) has four million times the mass of our Sun and is located about 26,000 light-years – the distance light travels in a year, 5.9 trillion miles – from Earth.
