Is Martian Landscape Antarctica?

Nothing in [politricks] ever happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

Let’s be frank, the ruse of jet-setting politrikians (and their ilk) “visiting” Antarctica just does not make sense.  Kerry, Kirill, Aldrin, Putin, Antarctica [has become a] hotspot for politicians.  It is rather shocking that paparazzi craved Obama missed the photo op of lifetime while visiting Patagonia mere miles from Antarctica.  Maybe Obama suffers from basophobia?  Hmmm.  Don’t folk accuse those they are denigrating, of the very issue they suffer fromSuffering succotash indeed.  We’ve been had six ways to Sunday.

Chile’s Atacama Desert is the driest place on Earth — and a ready analog for Mars’ rugged, arid terrain.

Is this Antarctica?

We’re told its Mars (On Mars, bare-rock structures hold onto heat far better than sand-like structures do, meaning they will appear brighter at night, when viewed in the infrared. – NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS, Mars Curiosity Rover).

Source of Antarctica’s Eerie ‘Bleeding Glacier’ Found
Antarctica’s Dry Valleys are the most arid places on Earth, but underneath their icy soils lies a vast and ancient network of salty, liquid water filled with life, a new study finds.
The Dry Valleys are almost entirely ice-free, except for a few isolated glaciers. Inside the canyons, the climate is extremely dry, cold and windy; researchers have stumbled upon mummified seals in these gorges that are thousands of years old.

Mars has a blue sky?

Mount Sharp Panorama in White-Balanced Colors
This mosaic of images from the Mast Camera (Mastcam) on NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity shows Mount Sharp in a white-balanced color adjustment that makes the sky look overly blue but shows the terrain as if under Earth-like lighting. White-balancing helps scientists recognize rock materials based on their experience looking at rocks on Earth. The Martian sky would look more of a butterscotch color to the human eye. White balancing yields an overly blue hue in images that have very little blue information, such as Martian landscapes, because the white balancing tends to overcompensate for the low inherent blue content.

“Our greatest obstacle to the truth is our self,” said the late great Chuck Missler.

Why?

Because all to often we invest our presuppositions, when we should be holding loosely to paradigms of our past.

Why?

Because we are finite and the world is far more complex that what we’ve been told.

Think outside the box, or you will be boxed in by those who make boxes.
