If all the other strange rock formations and possible artifacts found on Mars weren’t weird enough, how about a NASA photo that seems to depict an object that bears an “uncanny resemblance to President Barack Obama?” At least, that is what one website suggests after considering the Mars Spirit rover’s 2005 photo.
UFO Sightings Hotspot reported Nov. 28 that a high definition Mars photo has revealed a rock or artifact on Mars’ surface that looks like the 44th president of the United States. Or so the website says. Some might beg to differ, but to drive the idea home that the image is that of Barack Obama, UFO Sightings Hotspot, passing along the comparison from Paranormal Crucible (which mistakenly identifies the photo as being from the Curiosity rover), offers up information that could explain a statue of Obama being discovered on the face of Mars.
“Andrew Basiago and [first name not provided] Stillings, former participants in the CIA’s Mars visitation program of the early 1980’s have confirmed that U.S. President Barack H. Obama was enrolled in their Mars training class in 1980 and was among the young Americans from the program who they later encountered on the Martian surface after reaching Mars via ‘jump room.’”
It is then noted that 3-D printing was first developed in the 1980s. (True: The first 3-D printer, according to PCMag, was constructed in 1984 by Charles W. (Chuck) Hull of 3D Systems Corp.)
Apparently, the future president was in a class of eight young people at the time, according to Basiago and Stillings. One of his fellows, a Regina Dugan, was appointed by President Obama as the 19th and first female director of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in 2009. (And for conspiracy theory buffs, Basiago and Stillings claim he was going by the name of “Barry Soetoro” at the time.)
Scott C. Waring at UFO Sightings Daily supports the speculation that the head might be that of a statue that is primarily intact, its body buried in the Martian ground. He also gives a nod to a possible relic constructed from 3-D printing. However, that the image might resemble President Barack Obama is a comparison left unmade by Waring.
As for Paranormal Crucible, it passes along the conspiracy theory that President Obama is a clone. He is a living facsimile of an ancient Martian ruler that was also cloned to become an Egyptian pharaoh.
Regardless of photo likenesses and conspiracy theories, the Mars Spirit photo isn’t the only weird rock formation that has been discovered that looks in some way humanoid or like it might be part of a statue. Earlier in the month, a rock or artifact in the familiar shape of a Moai head — like the giant heads on Easter Island — was spotted in a Mars photo taken by the Curiosity rover in January. Just two days prior to that revelation, a 1997 photo taken by the Mars Pathfinder rover gave up the image of what looked like a stone humanoid head.
