Forget Tora Bora, this is HUGE!
News out today from NASA seems to suggest they think they maybe sort of kinda might have found this on Mars:
Seven very dark holes on the north slope of a Martian volcano have been proposed as possible cave skylights, based on day-night temperature patterns suggesting they are openings to subsurface spaces. The find is fueling interest in potential underground habitats and sparking searches for caverns elsewhere on the Red Planet. Very dark, nearly circular features ranging in diameter from about 100 to 250 meters (328 to 820 feet) puzzled researchers who found them in images taken by NASA's Mars Odyssey and Mars Global Surveyor orbiters. Using Mars Odyssey's infrared camera to check the daytime and nighttime temperatures of the circles, scientists concluded that they could be windows into underground spaces.So while we're being told by "officials" in W.D.C. that Osama bin Laden slipped out from under our collective noses near the Pakistani border, maybe this story from NASA casts new doubt on the whereabouts of OBL? After all, can anyone in the military or intelligence communities REALLY say for sure that he's NOT hiding in these Mars caves? When you look at his latest videos, the dull light washing over his unwashed face sure does look like the warm illumination that comes in from a "skylight" similar to the ones NASA has found on Mars.
Of course, I am just slinging horse by-products your way on this...but actual scientists ARE taking notice of this find:
"Whether these are just deep vertical shafts or openings into spacious caverns, they are entries to the subsurface of Mars," said co-author Tim Titus of the U.S. Geological Survey in Flagstaff. "Somewhere on Mars, caves might provide a protected niche for past or current life, or shelter for humans in the future."You know, now that I think about it, Dick Cheney is always going off to his "undisclosed location"...maybe, hmmm, naw, can't be...
