How the Face on Mars was discredited

As you may know ther face on mars has been discredited as updated images showed it wa smore of a land mass - In 1998, when Mars Global Surveyor flew over Cydonia for the first time, it snapped a picture ten times sharper than the original Viking photos revealing a natural landform. There was no alien monument after all.

But not everyone was satisfied. The Face on Mars is located at 41 degrees north martian latitude where it was winter in April '98 -- a cloudy time of year on the Red Planet. The camera on board MGS had to peer through wispy clouds to see the Face. Perhaps, said skeptics, alien markings were hidden by haze.

Nevertheless, on April 8, 2001 -- a cloudless summer day in Cydonia -- Mars Global Surveyor drew close enough for a second look. "We had to roll the spacecraft 25 degrees to center the Face in the field of view," said Garvin. "Malin's team captured an extraordinary photo using the camera's absolute maximum resolution." Each pixel in the 2001 image spans 1.56 meters, compared to 43 meters per pixel in the best 1976 Viking photo.
