      Press Release
      Date: April 3, 2001
      Re: Artificial Structures on Mars

      Washington, DC ­ On Thursday, April 5, 2001 at 9 a.m., Meta Research
      [<http://metaresearch.org>, ³About Meta Research² tab] will release new
      findings that provide compelling evidence for the presence of artificial
      structures on the planet Mars. The press conference will be held at the
      National Press Club, 529 14th Street, NW, Washington, DC, in the main
      room on the 13th floor.

      Widely published astronomer, Dr. Thomas Van Flandern will take Q&A and
      present findings representing contributions by dozens of researchers,
      including physicists, geologists, engineers, and image processing
      specialists from several organizations.

      The presentation materials will include photographic evidence from the
      NASA¹s Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft, as well as independent
      photographic analysis. Several of these images have not previously been
      made public. The main room of the National Press Club was chosen to
      utilize its excellent video projection equipment.

      Other topics to be discussed include the following:
      ß the posture of NASA and its contractor, JPL, toward evidence of
      anomalous features
      ß difficulties in obtaining proper consideration from primary peer review
      ß the urgent need for retargeting of the Mars Global Surveyor towards
      specific areas of high interest in connection with potential artifacts
      before the spacecraft runs out of maneuvering fuel later this year

      Press packets will be available on April 5 at the National Press Club.
      The press conference will be simulcast on the Internet worldwide at

      ****** OPEN LETTER TO NASA's Dan Goldin

      Meta Research
      PO Box 15186
      Chevy Chase, MD 20825-5186

      March 31, 2001

      NASA Administrator Daniel S. Goldin
      NASA Headquarters
      300 E Street, SW
      Washington, DC 20546-0001

      Dear Dr. Goldin:

      This letter is to advise that Meta Research will be holding a press
      conference in the main room of the National Press Club, 529 14th Street,
      NW, Washington, DC, 13th floor, at 9:00 a.m. on 2001 April 5, of likely
      interest to NASA. The title of the conference is ³Artificial structures
      on Mars². Most of the evidence presented (in six different categories)
      will be based on NASA/JPL/MSSS high-resolution imagery from the Mars
      Global Surveyor spacecraft. You are cordially invited to attend, either
      in person or via our live webcast, or to send a representative.

      About 18 months ago, some of our team of research scientists
      communicated that we had results of likely interest to the Head of the
      Solar System Exploration program, Dr. Carl Pilcher. He indicated that it
      was time for peer review. Our technical paper has now been reviewed by
      dozens of experts in a variety of fields without any significant flaw
      being detected. However, when we took this to Nature, and later to
      Science, the paper was rejected without review based on subject matter
      alone. In large measure, that happened because this subject matter
      (artifacts on Mars) was inappropriately undermined by JPL¹s premature
      release of a filtered image of the Cydonia Face mesa that seriously
      misrepresents what the spacecraft saw on Mars. The use of a
      detail-suppressing high-pass filter on an image where details are crucial
      is documented at JPL¹s web site at
      <http://mpfwww.jpl.nasa.gov/mgs/target/CYD1/index.html>. The properly
      processed image of the Face mesa may be viewed at
      proof_files/face443x443_6.2.00.mov>, which animates the corrections for
      lighting and viewing angle. Our unpublished technical paper will be
      included in the press kit.

      We expect this press conference to be of interest to NASA because even a
      disproof of artificiality would be a scientifically interesting and
      revealing exercise; from which we are sure to learn things about
      enigmatic geology that will play a vital role in understanding the
      formation of Earth-like planetary bodies such as Mars. On the other hand,
      a confirmation of artifacts would surely lead to increased public support
      for NASA and immediate impetus for a manned mission to Mars.
      Sincerely yours,

      Tom Van Flandern, Ph.D.
      Research Astronomer: 202/362-9176

      *So much to learn and so little time, will we ever find the truth?*
