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.

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.

Why, yes.....that looks exactly like a Russian lander to me. Either that, or a cotton ball.

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.

Cable rated it 1-star, which is baaaaaaaaaaad. Regardless, I was tempted, but went with the "Bar Rescue" marathon instead.

The martian government has been quick to reassure the Martian citizens that the object is nothing more than swamp gas. Or Venus.

I don’t believe that picture. There is no way someone is sending Kucinich mail.

It’s amazing how he didn’t die, and never went into space, but replaced the dude who had and never came back, according to recent disclosures.

Shouldn't NASA be reaching out the the Islamist death cult to make them feel good about all their scientific discoveries... per Bamy...

They supposedly stole, err I mean, invented the concept of "0".. just how in the hell are did the Russians get to mars without "0"

By logic Mohammad was the reason they can make a trip to Mars...

Those pictures look like they came from an ad for pimple medicine.
