base on mars, directly from google maps
i think this issue is very serious and deserved a thread on its own, Exclamation

the following link is directly from google maps,

https://www.google.com/maps/space/mars/@-4.5602385,137.3909458,2272m/data=!3m1!1e3

and this is what you will see,

Do you think it is a real base on Mars that exists now?

That image was not taken by me. So I will just take it 50/50!

Google doesn't have satellites around Mars, so it's fake. April's Fools probably.

What is that? It seems it's repeating, so probably a panorama?

But even so, all google images must come from NASA or other such agencies, since Google never ventured close to Mars. At least, as far as I'm aware.

But then you take what NASA do 50/50 right? Much easier to fake pictures these days than moon landing back then Wink

there is no reason even for april fools, to fake a complexes on mars map, unless, they are crazy,

it is easier to fake pictures these days, but what is the core reason to do it on google mars map?

Huh? Faking a picture is extremely easy compared to what kind of April's Fools other companies put out, like the fake trailers for "sci fi" products, like NVIDIA and Razer, and they still did it. (e.g. hovering mouse)

You know I find it so funny you don't doubt this obviously fake pic, but you doubt other official sources instead and take them 50/50. Wink

These days we cannot trust anything any more; we need to take everything 50/50!

But what if there are three options? Shocked

50/50/0?

33/33/34?

33.3333…/33.3333…/33.3333…?

The phrase "take something 50/50", as popularized by sleepsleep, means "trust something partially" or "take something with a grain of salt". It has nothing to do with the number of available options.

You should really brush up your English.

Google posted this on March 31, so I guess... April fool.

But fear not, someone will eventually do it sooner or later.

In the meantime, enjoy the baby steps.

aware about that google posts, Embarassed
but i personally felt, it is insane to tamper a map to allow users to do streetview on mars ~ google data center,

is like pressing [x] equal to ok instead of exit, imo,

What's the big deal? There have been lots of sci-fi movies about space exploration; almost all of them do not have a happy ending. Don't believe the following quote:

“That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”

It is nothing but political propaganda.

But I don't know many (or any?) that explore Gas Giants or more exotic planets (not similar to Earth), which pisses me off. I want to see below the clouds of a Gas Giant and perhaps even its "earth".

Mars is a dead Earth, nothing special about humans on it in terms of exploration.

There is one special thing I think it has: It is potentially habitable by humans. The Venusian atmosphere is anther "special" place. But the inside/outside of a gas giant is most probably far too inhospitable for human exploration (and forget about trying to live there).

I'm all for exploration of our surroundings. But I reserve "special" places for especially (huh!) detailed studies. Other not-so-special places can get the once over and then on to the next.
