It was only a matter of time... [cue Thus Spake Zarathustra]  /img/vbsmilies/htf/alien.gif

An image of what appears to be a mysterious rocky monument on Mars has excited space junkies around the world.

The 'monolith', was snapped from 165miles away using a special high resolution camera on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

After being published on the website Lunar Explorer Italia, it set tongues wagging with space buffs questioning whether there was once life on the Red Planet.

The image seems to resemble the black monolith that appears during key moments of man's evolution in the Stanley Kubrick film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

'Is it possible that there used to be an ancient civilization on Mars?' former Montreal radio presenter David Tyler asked on his blog.

'Is it possible that NASA already knows the answer? Could this be the final straw for disclosure?'

Oh my!  First the face, now this! 

Did the robot things (as they are technically known as) they sent up there find any organic material that hinted of life?  I didn't think they did.

[squints] I think it's a building... maybe a skyscraper or shopping center. This object might be all that was left of a sprawling metropolis until disaster struck and everything was wiped out. The Martians must have gone underground, probably in huge caverns where Martian intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic, regard our Earth with envious eyes, slowly and surely drawing their plans against us....

I think you are correct and this is the door to the elevator shaft leading down into the caverns.

Golden-eyed they were....

I think it's the top of a church. Apparently a Catholic church. Bad news for those of us not belonging to that congegration...

But then again, it looks like the dust around it is still relatively recently disturbed. So perhaps it simply fell down from one of our many probes.

No, from my experiences here it looks more lile a Mormon church steeple.

gormo01 knew the true identity of the monolith and was about to reveal it to the world right here on HTF, but he was abducted before he could.

It looks to me like it is the top of a large pyramid and the rest is buried under the sand.

It's missing the light on top of it.

It's either a coincidentally shaped boulder, or a British "Keep Left" sign.

I think he was going outside to check who was banging on his door so earlier in the morning.
