NASA Mars Images Reveals A 'Doorway' Structure

There is a strange door-like structure at the base of the
mountain formation from a NASA image of Mars that is causing a
stir. The first person to notice it wasn't a NASA scientist,
however, but rather a Russian reader of the portal R&D.Cnews,
Alexander Novgorodov. Taking a closer look at an image taken by
the spacecraft Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, he noticed an
unusual morphology, which looks strikingly like a manmade

Of course, the object's intriguing form does not denote the
presence of a real doorway, nor would it imply that the mountain
formation is of artificial origin. That would make an incredible
story indeed, but the likely cause it boring old weather
erosion. However, the peculiarities are of interest due to their
unique morphology.

The unusual teardrop mountain formation, which likely resulted
from some sort of weathering, is located amid Mar's frozen ocean

A planet of extremes, Mars is home to the largest mountain in
the solar system, the largest canyon in the solar system and
intensely severe dust storms. It is also home to the only other
likely option for humans to live within our Solar System.

According to astrophysicist Charlie Lineweaver of Australian
National University, "ever since the first telescope was
invented and we learnt that there are other worlds out there,
people have dreamed of going to them. Of course we now know that
Mars is the only other planet in the solar system you'd want to
set foot on."

Physicist Rod Boswell says getting people there isn't the real
problem. "There is no doubt you could get people to Mars.
Whether you get them back again is a debatable point."

But some argue that Mars could someday be humankind's second
home. But if there is ever going to be a real doorway on mars,
we've got to figure out how to make Mars more hospitable. Many
believe terraforming is the answer, and introducing plants that
would create more oxygen that we humans love, would be a start.

"They've done some experiments and have noticed that some types
of plants can grow under the low pressure CO2 atmosphere on
Mars," Lineweaver noted.

Terraforming is the hypothetical process of deliberately
modifying another planet or moon's atmosphere, temperature,
and/or ecology to be similar to those of Earth in order to make
it habitable by humans. Although it would be an enormous
challenge=97if possible at all=97many experts believe it is
possible. Mars is considered by most to be the most likely
candidate for terraformation. Already, a significant amount of
study and discussion has gone into the possibility of heating
the planet and altering its atmosphere, including NASA hosted
debates on the subject.
