Let us discuss the mapping of Mars and some thoughts on the matter. We have mapped the Earth by using Satellites and have a complete GIS mapping with complete mineral deposits, underground oil areas, volcanic plumes and even huge natural water aquifers. We have also done this with the US Navy and mapped the entire territory of the Ocean Floor. At first it was secret and historically given to scientists and the World. Today we even map the ocean elevations to find gravity anomalies and much of this data helps us with El Nino, weather predictions, ocean-surface temperatures and to learn about gravity effects and variations.
Of course this information is very important to the US Military itself, but it also helps us with global climate change, weather forecasting, environmental issues, sea life migrations, fishing, super tanker safety, etc. Using GeoSats we have done this for our own Planet.
Now then since Mars is so close we can use the Earth as a Satellite, with multiple locations to give us triangulation. Using the satellite already there in orbit, I think it is called MOLA.
You see this is a valuable tool for us. Now then instead of sound, radio or other waves we can use Pulsed Lasers. But the pulsed lasers will be coming from us here on Earth because we are so close now. With the speed of light at about only 3 and a half minutes during our close fly bye of the two Planets (using pulsed lasers the disruption patterns can increase the past the speed of light), we can get a good indication of the terrain and occasional within inches, there for the tubes, that rock with the face, the CO2 and H2O polar ice, what's underneath. Where the rock is, silica type fine sand is, how deep it is. We can also see if there is larger life than the micro-organizations we already are positive that exist.
We can then build a 3D and 4D modeling for people to experience Mars as if they were walking or traveling on the surface itself. JPL needs this information and CalTech has been doing much hypothesizing and some of the things already found might shake the religious foundations of the human culture and societies through our little planet. The problem I can see with this is that we would obviously have some disruptions of certain frequency bands while this is taking place. When the laser pulse signals return they would do so in a huge pattern or swath that would or should be even bigger than the Earth its self, causing some disruptions. But the data loss in transmissions is certainly worth the knowledge we will gain. With this approach we could find objects too? Like what? Well like the science fiction authors like Ben Bova, Arthur C Clark and others. I know this is way out stuff, but one theory of many is that mankind is of another merged species. Which is an interesting concept and cool topic at science conferences and martini parties.
By knowing the types of rocks, terrain, amount of water, CO2, we can determine what type of life filled which niches and if that life has similar building blocks as we do here on Earth, which obviously it would. However with the C02 there would be life that may have shells or outer hard skin if living near oxygen or it could be jelly like small single cell and or complex life. The rocks could be alive, the dirt or sand could be alive. All sorts of possibilities, including those tubes could have been made by life forms instead of fluid flows of compounds. We need to know. There are five un-manned satellites that had been dispatched to Mars now from many countries, the data being bought back has been extremely important and if there is not life on Mars now, we are almost certain there was.
We are not alone for sure in the quest to find life on Mars and we may not be alone in the other regard but it is imperative for the American People to be the first to know and for us to come to the realization that in the future Religion will be come more cultural than absolute. This should not be seen as a bad thing for religion has allowed our species to live in somewhat harmony over the last 10,000 years in which we have been keeping track. Knowing all about Mars will mean we can be more suited to study the life there and sometimes in some way interact with it for the betterment of both. The United Nations counter part may be called the United Species of the Sun. We have been getting close to communicating between machine and mankind on a brain wave level and when we determine the type of complex life forms on Mars maybe we maybe able to do what we have done here communicating with other species. Rather than making predictions or like some scientists who allow theories to over drive their headlights, I am interested in learning all there is to know from our rendezvous' with Mars. I guarantee what ever we find this time will be really out of this world, hold on for some astonishing new facts.
We are getting very close to some incredible break thrus in our quest to find life on other Planets. This could be the largest discovery ever made in the history of science.
