Although the location of the newly-detected glaciers does not include Cydonia, Bara was not shy about claiming triumph in respect of one of Richard Hoagland's wildest speculations, from Chapter 10 of his error-riddled book. He says a false-color IR image from the THEMIS instrument on Mars Odyssey represents a buried city, encased in ice and covered with what he calls "poof dust." Here's a link to the image.
Exercising his privilege as moderator, Mike Bara censored this rather mild enquiry:
Could we please have additional data on this image? Does it represent a 20x20 kM ground area, as standard THEMIS images do?
If so, your "city" has surprisingly long blocks, don't you think?
Do you have reasons for asserting that this is a city other than the fact that its general layout reminds you of an aerial photo of a city? Or is this perhaps like the "face," the "crinoid," the "crashed spacecraft," the "robot head," or the "machine parts" — purely in the imagination of Richard Hoagland?
This is NOT science, Mike.
