From the ‘X-Files’ Dept: “Bio Station Alpha –A Human or Alien Base Sighted on Mars”


An "armchair astronaut," David Martines, claims to have identified a base on Mars of "either human or alien origin" while surfing Google Mars. Martines noticed the mysterious rectangular structure on the Red Planet's surface while using a new map program created from compiled satellite images of the planet.

"This is a video of something I discovered on Google Mars quite by accident," said Martines, in the viral YouTube video. "I call it Bio Station Alpha, because I'm just assuming that something lives in it or has lived in it."

The surface anomaly — a long, pixelated, white object — is at coordinates as 49'19.73"N 29 33'06.53"W. "It's over 700 feet long and 150 feet wide. It looks like it's a cylinder or made up of cylinders," Martines says.
