Mars holds a special fascination for us, because it is the most Earth-like planet we've yet encountered. As we continue to explore the red planet, geological evidence mounts that long ago water flowed freely across its surface, begging the question: If there was water, was there life? Graham Hancock thinks so. In fact, Hancock, a former journalist and the author of several books, including Fingerprints of the Gods, believes that certain formations on the Martian surface are the remnants of an ancient civilization--one strikingly similar to ancient Egypt--that was destroyed by a cataclysmic deep impact. Further, Hancock claims that NASA's reluctance to give credence to "The Face," "The Pyramids," and other things people see in images of the Martian surface is evidence that the U.S. space agency is motivated by cold war paranoia and mistrust. Hancock seems to be more fair-minded than many NASA critics, stating that, "what we see is a mindset, here, not a conspiracy." And indeed, one is hard-pressed to imagine why NASA isn't agreeing wholeheartedly with Hancock, since his ultimate point is that we should be paying more attention to our planetary neighbors and the skies above, lest we suffer the same fate as the Martians. Hancock raises many intriguing questions in this synthesis of unorthodox Mars theory, but those looking for applications of Ockham's razor had best search elsewhere--Hancock's theories require a leap of faith as surely as NASA's do. --Therese Littleton

Pressestimmen

"Hancock revels in presenting his readers with a vast wealth of information. He builds his case fact by fact,
find by find, until one is overwhelmed by the evidence that draws to an inevitable conclusion."
--Journal Star

Hancock weaves accepted science, controversial science and speculation into a compelling, entertaining narrative. Even though some readers will find Hancock's case to lack credibility due to his discussion of the Cydonia 'monuments' on Mars, his eventual conclusion rests on sound, accepted science: that human civilization is in grave, imminent danger from a massive comet fragment lurking in the Taurid meteor stream. Thanks to exhaustive footnotes, the validity of Hancock's evidence is easy to verify.

The search for life on Mars has fascinated generations of astronomers and stargazers etc. The announcement that NASA scientists may have located evidence of liquid water on the surface of the red planet is only the latest chapter in the exploration of Mars. As much as the public craves proof of little green men, the focus of the scientific search has been to uncover evidence of the conditions necessary for life. NASA researchers described their approach as "follow the water". Water is critical for the development of life and if the presence of liquid water - at or near the surface of Mars - can be confirmed, scientists will be steps closer to piecing the life-on-Mars puzzle.
Mars is the fourth major planet from the Sun, named after the Roman god of war because of its reddish colour. Mars has an elliptical orbit, and so its distance from the Earth varies considerably. Its mean distance from the Sun is 228 million km, about half as far again as is the Earth. A Martian day, or sol, is 24.6 Earth hours, and the Martian year is approximately 687 Earth days. The planet has two small satellites, Phobos and Deimos. Like the Earth, Mars has seasons because of an oblique axis of rotation and the presence of an atmosphere. It is, however, much colder: the mean surface atmospheric temperature is only -23o C. Mars is a small planet, having a mean diameter of 6,790 km, approximately half that of the Earth. Also, its density, 3.933 grams per cubic centimetre, is lower than that of Earth. Mars' thin atmosphere is composed predominantly of carbon dioxide, with some nitrogen and argon. Traces of water vapour have also been detected. The perennial part of the ice caps consists of water ice and the seasonal parts of frozen carbon dioxide.

While the chance for finding intelligent life in the universe is extrememly unlikely (See "Rare Earth" and "Nature's Destiny") the "objects" on Mars always have intriqued me. Hancock does a good review of Mars exploration and what we know of Mars. He also shows us some of the political mess that often runs NASA (See "Deep Time" for another good story on NASA bureacracy concerning the Cassini probe). He scours all previous works on the Cydonia images and pulls it all together, no need to read the older books. The latest MGS photos have caused more problems, than answering questions. NASA photo mishandling and new objects found and questionable photo processing have driven this controversy further.
Mars was once wet, and it wouldn't be surprising to find fossils of primitive life, or maybe life there now. Intelligent life is unlikely, but perhaps not impossible. NASA should end its hypocracy, and dedicate some time with these probes to studying the Cydonia region, to answer the lingering questions.
The only odd thing proposed in this book, is the continuing search for some "lost civilization." Many cultures share the story of a massive flood in the Middle East having disasterous effects on mankind, which has shown to be rooted in reality (See the book "Noah's Flood). But what evidence of some super-advanced civilization before then?
Are similar monument designs around the world inherited from some super race or Martians, or the logical ends of ancient peoples whom relied on the same stars and math for calendars and agriculture?

Graham Hancock's foray into "The Mars Mystery" suggests a disjointedness that is not in character with his usual form. It is definitely not of the same high quality of "Fingerprints of the Gods"; however it does contain the elements of a good story if told with less speculation and more supporting evidence. There is little question that The Face and the Pyramids of the Cydonian plain on Mars make for an intriguing mystery which will likely only be resolved with extensive exploration of Mars. Is this arrangement a natural fluke or an engineered set of structures put there by an ancient race of intelligent beings, beings which may have had a link to Earth? Hancock only serves to heighten the frustration previously generated by Richard Hoagland in "The Monuments of Mars". This frustration is not helped in any significant way by a disappointing resolution and lack of clarity in the Mars Global Surveyor and the Malin Space Science Systems Mars Orbital Camera, aided and abetted by the potentially subjective method of computer "contrast enhancement" and the suggestion of a NASA cover-up complicity. But this Cydonian part of the book does not seem to fit with the rest of it; I tend to agree with T. Peters in his review that the lack of a "walloping confirmation" from the Mars Global Surveyor forced publication of a book in heavily revised form. But what is the true story told here, what was Hancock really trying to say? That Mars was once rich in atmosphere and water and now stands in stark testimony to the vastly destructive effect of asteroid and comet impact is a reasonable thesis.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
