NASA and Microsoft have launched an interactive website that allows web surfers to become Mars explorers.

The "Be a Martian" website invites members of the public to help scientists perform such research tasks as improving maps of the red planet, the US space agency and US software giant said.

"We're at a point in history where everyone can be an explorer," Doug McCuistion, director of NASA's Mars Exploration Program, said.

"With so much data coming back from Mars missions that are accessible by all, exploring Mars has become a shared human endeavour.

"People worldwide can expand the specialised efforts of a few hundred Mars mission team members and make authentic contributions of their own."

Users can, for example, count craters on Mars, a task NASA said had posed a challenge in the past because of the vast numbers involved.

The Hoagland Woo-Woo crowd will love this. Imagine all the hidden cities and ancient monuments they will discover.

Oh Christ I hope they don't find anything because in my book I publicly promised to kiss Hoagland's ass live on Coast to Coast AM if any of his Mars/Moon claims turn out to be true! :shock:

For just as many people to readily debunk.

I can just "see" it now!

Welcome back to Dreamland, listeners! OK, let me move the mic over for the big event! Ready? Here it is!

<big wet smacking sound>

You heard it here first folks!

Somehow, I don't think you're going to ever have to worry about making good on that bet. :)

The back&forth arising from this new technology is going to fuel Woo-discussion-boards for the next millennium!

If we could somehow harness that energy, we'd solve the AGW problem overnight!

A few people who should be denied access to the program:
Richard Hoagland
Mark Carlotto
Lan Flemming
Robert Williams

BTW, in related news, I heard that Stanton Friedman said: “Alien abductions can be halted by invoking Obama’s name.”

And invoking the name of Obama three times quickly and snapping your heels together is said to cause the appearance of a rainbow which, if followed to its very end, leads to Obama's personal stash of stimulus cash (and his hidden carton of Marlboro Lights).

I thought Friedman leaned towards being a liberal. He also lives in Canada. I recommend his recent book Flying Saucers and Science. Another one who should be kept off the air is John Lear. He makes Hoagland sound sane!

I actually tried this. (the help with the mapping portion) It is a lot harder than it looks. I couldn't see any relations between the photos. :(
