CYDONIA FACE TO BE IMAGED
from Aerospace Daily, 10/21/96. Article:30748
FACE TIME: While Sojourner is set to crawl around the floor of an ancient
channel that scientists believe once carried liquid water, the Mars Global
Surveyor will map the planet from a polar orbit that will take it over
most points on the surface 26 times during a 687-day Martian year. That
will include the so-called "face on Mars" touted in the tabloids as
evidence of a past Martian civilization that NASA is trying to cover up.
Arden Albee, Global Surveyor project scientist, says the project plans
to alert the vocal face-on-Mars lobby whenever imagery from the region
where the "face" was spotted is coming up, and to post the imagery on the
Internet as soon as it's collected. "We think that we have done all the
things that we can possibly do in the framework of this mission to try
to address this question of the face on Mars," he says.
