      Although these incidents are old news, they do appear to remain
      enigmas. Although they may be thought by many people to lend support to the
      hypothesis that the earth is under quarantine, the question arises as to why
      some Mars probes are allowed to complete their missions and others are not.
      Could it have been, perhaps, that Phobos II and Mars Observer were not just
      the simple data-gathering and telemetering devices that they were described
      to the world as being? What could any ET sentinels have detected about them
      that would have activated the presumed Martian defences? Why would they
      have posed a threat to the status quo on Mars when the Viking and Mariner
      probes did not? As usual, I dare say that the true picture is far more
      complicated than earthly powers-that-be would have us believe.

      Re-examining the Lost
      Mars Probes of 1989-1993

      IKI in Moscow (the Institute of Space Research of the Russian Academy of
      Sciences, the Soviet equivalent of NASA) had hoped that, just as the Soviet
      Vega spacecraft which flew close to Halley's Comet in 1986 and took 10,000
      instrumented observations, detecting grains of ice and dust, the very
      elements essential for life (hydrogen, oxygen, carbon and nitrogen),
      similarly the Mars Phobos II probe would also find signs of primitive life.
      But in March of 1989 the Russian spacecraft Phobos II, programmed for
      intensive studies of the geology of the red planet, disappeared from the
      Russian tracking system as it was performing a preliminary survey of the
      Martian surface. This was the most sophisticated, powerful and costly
      package of Soviet and European electronics and instrumentation sent to Mars
      from the Earth prior to 1993 and was expected to perform over thirty joint
      Russian-European experiments when all its cameras shut off suddenly and the
      "total loss of the craft" was officially noted.
      One of the last images relayed to earth in detail by the Phobos II camera
      before data transmission was lost was an enormous elliptical shadow on the
      surface of Mars -- cigar-shaped, and an estimated 25-27 kilometers (approxi-
      mately 16 miles) in length. The size of this object ruled out the
      possibility that it was a reflection of the Phobos spacecraft itself.
      Because of its of its position, its symmetrical shape, its size and its
      movement, no features on the surface of Mars in the area in front of the
      probe, nor the satellite moons of Phobos and Deimos, nor the Phobos II
      spacecraft itself could account for this shadow pattern occurring in the
      very last frames of data successfully transmitted to earth.
      Was the shadow evidence that the spacecraft made contact with a non-human
      intelligence life form before it permanently disappeared? According to
      Soviet test pilot Col. Marina Popovitch, no geological features transmitted
      in the Phobos data tracks could have caused this unique shadow pattern. It
      was believed by investigators who studied the details of this shadow that
      appeared just prior to Phobos II's disappearance that it was the shadow of a
      craft that was not on the surface of Mars but that was hovering or
      levitating above the planet.
      Col. Marina Popovitch further stated in a public interview that the shadow
      seen in connection with the lost spacecraft was brought up in conversations
      between President Gorbachev and President Bush in December 1989 at the Malta
      summit. The Soviet government refused to acknowledge extraterrestrial
      intelligence, even though many of their top military and commercial pilots
      have made credible reports of such sightings. For example, at Moscow airport
      during test flights of an Aeroflot IL-96-300 plane in the spring of 1990,
      several strange objects in the sky were witnessed and photographed.
      The sighting of the shadow on Mars should be enough to convince many that
      there may be intelligent life orbiting Mars, but in August of 1993 another
      event of major proportions took place that sent a tremendous rumble through
      the US space program. The $400,000,000 US Mars Observer probe, sent to map
      in detail the surface of the red planet, was lost just as it prepared to
      make its Mars orbital insertion. Signals were sent to pressurize the fuel
      tanks in the propulsion system, in preparation for rocket firings that would
      slow the spacecraft down and allow it to be captured by the planet's gravity
      field, but the Observer's antenna, which was to receive and acknowledge Jet
      Propulsion Laboratory's signal, never responded. Scientists concluded, a
      short time after the loss of the probe, that the spacecraft must have
      exploded when the fuel tanks were being pressurized. The cost of the entire
      mission was close to one billion dollars.
      Immediately, cries of "incompetence" and even the notion of "Cover-up" and
      "Conspiracy" rang out in the world press accounts. In particular, NASA was
      charged with deliberately concealing a story of massive importance on the
      Mars mission, the Martian land forms, and even details on the so-called
      "Face on Mars." But what are the other realities?
      In 1972, the Mariner 9 probe brought back evidence of unusual pyramidal
      structures on the Martian surface in the Elysium Quadrangle, and NASA's 1976
      Viking I and II probes of the red planet relayed images of a face and
      pyramidal complex at the Cydonia site on Mars. Although the vast majority of
      NASA scientists saw nothing unusual in the Mariner 9 and Viking pictures, a
      minority felt that some of the unusual landform configurations merited a
      closer look with better optical-imaging systems. These artifacts may signal
      the existence of perhaps even an extra-solar intelligence that is cautious
      about our venturing out into space.
      Is it possible that the American mission, losing communication with its Mars
      Observer, met with a fate similar to that of the Soviet Phobos II? In short,
      rather than the Observer episode signifying a "cover-up" by NASA or a
      "conspiracy on the part of US government officials," taking the termination
      of the Phobos II probe into account, we might ask: Is it possible that there
      is a more powerful intelligence in space that may be watching our planetary
      endeavors? There may be an extra-solar intelligence already with a base on
      Mars that is watching and waiting for the the human race's next events in
      accepting and understanding the operations of parallel evolution. The "Face
      on Mars" may be a sort of Rorschach ink blot test, or a psychological
      mirror: It may indicate that we need to overcome our desire for cultural
      domination and realize that our technology may be harmful to other planetary
      environments. It may indicate that we must first understand the conditions
      of a larger evolutionary reality.
      The unusual signatures of a much larger story seem to suggest that there
      truly exist, on the larger evolutionary space-time horizon, forces which one
      might call the celestial "higher-ups" in the frontiers of space that have
      other designs for contact and work on Mars. Perhaps, when we conquer our
      desire to be eternal cosmic warriors and can get beyond the "conspiracy"
      theories we apply to things we do not understand then we can begin to use
      our sister planet as a stepping-stone for peaceful space colonization and
      our own eventual settlements as Peace-Makers amongst the stars.
