You pose right questions, Doug.
Do you think I did not pose them too to myself?
The fact is, that Malin has a privilege that he shouldn't have got at all, if there isn't indeed nothing to cover.
I mean, it wouldn't be much more simple and clear to release original raw data without delay times for every image?
An don't tell me they do that way.
Why NASA "headmen" don't simply stop with such a suspicious behaviour?
Mike Malin is not the ONLY person, obviously. But it is involved, it is HUGELY involved.
Anyway, I don't think checking 115 Mars images per day is not such a terrible effort.
I'd pay for seeing them before everyone else on Earth...
And I'm not saying he is carefully watching every picture in order to assure himself there's not "sensationally evident" in them.
He is obviously helped by someone.
It's not a joke. He has got a privilege, but he is doing what he's doing toghether with other people.
But sometimes some items are forgotten...
>>> Why go to all that trouble?
History hasn't thaught you anything?
Through the most sensational cover-ups and LIES of history the most people aimed to something population cannot even figure out.
You know that medieval citizens posed once your same questions when some among them claimed that the King was doing or was about to do something unbelievable?
You think this is a beatiful Truth & Trust world.
Ohhh, until 90% of people in the so-called "advanced nations" aim for money ONLY, dear Doug, there is no one so trustworthy.
And there is much more: have you ever thought of "mental cracks" that such a discovery would produce on the mind of true [false] believers, of orthodox and closed scientists, of people like They're Rocks... ?
Are you realizing what I mean when I speak of "fear", "rage"?
>>> If the concept of a face on mars is so shocking - why was the orig Viking imagery released, and why do you think this whole cover up exists at all - for what purpose?
That is a good question.
I personally think that once - dozens of years ago - NASA included much more "flexible" people within, and above all the Space Agency wasn't so manipulated as it is nowadays.
Remember that some Viking images got changed afterwards, and that the Frame 35A72 was pointed out by a NASA guy who got immediately dismissed...
Er, why am I saying that to you? You have got a "blind trust" on NASA, that you do not even recognize clearly suspicious behaviours and acts. :confused:
