Mars 3 Lander transmitted for less than 15 seconds - then disappeared Images captured by Nasa orbiter from 2007 believed to show parachute and heatshield Next step is to research the 3-dimensional aspects of the finds to determine absolute proof
It transmitted data back to earth for just 14.5 second before everything 'went dark.'
But now incredible pictures from Nasa's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter [MRO] have revealed the site and possible remains of the Soviet Mars 3 Lander that arrived, and then seemingly disappeared, on the Red Planet in 1971.
The MRO has been orbiting Mars since 2006, taking a host of photos - and now Russian enthusiasts believe it may have captured the landing site of the doomed space vehicle.

I just watch Val Kilmer use a defunct Russian lander to escape from mars.
Finders keepers. Think what this thing would bring on eBay.
What movie is that?
I suspect my old 1071 chev impala wagon would fetch more.
I think it was “Red Planet”.
Big stars in a bad movie.
Ah yes. The one with the teddy bear computer guide.
All kidding aside, I liked that movie.
Is Weiner there?
I wouldn’t spend money on it but I’d watch it on TV. Its been playing on FX lately.
Why, yes.....that looks exactly like a Russian lander to me. Either that, or a cotton ball.
I liked it too!
Nah, that’s not Yuri Gagarin’s skeleton on the moon. In the absence of an atmosphere on the moon, the flesh would not decay in the classical sense. I think this is the mummified remains of the still-born hybrid offspring of Yuri and a female alien he met while on the moon.
I hadn’t seen Achmed the Dead Terrorist lately...
Cable rated it 1-star, which is baaaaaaaaaaad. Regardless, I was tempted, but went with the "Bar Rescue" marathon instead.
Saw him just the other night on the Comedy Channel
But it was rerun?
