Again, NASA is no longer censoring these images:

The head on the sphinx has broken off and turned around, very little photoshop work is needed to reconstruct it.

Bunker, slightly above and to the left of the sphinx:

@gungasnake,
do you waste good Bourbon looking for this ****?
That "bunker" is for relly tiny guys isn't it? Either that or the sand grains are much bigger than earth sand.
Ill go with the vivid imagination theory. Get some sleep

@gungasnake,
I love this ****.

But I'm afraid to ask what you see when you look at an ink blot.

@gungasnake,


You were looking so hard at the rock in the foreground that you missed the skull-like thing in the background under the shale outcrop.

(but seriously, this is a very cool image, just check out those flat sedimentary looking layers. I really wish I was up there with a rock hammer... )

@rosborne979,
As I mentioned, there is no way this one gets past the censors even a year ago. There's been some sort of a major change in policy at NASA and JPL.

@gungasnake,
No, I think youre just seeing more unicorns in the sky.
I don't even know if youre being serious, and if you are, I would be a bit concerned that perhaps youre listening to George Nori too much (and believing his guests).
Lets take your "bunker" and compare it to the grains of sand in the area surrounding. Any ieas on the size of that "bunker"? You've not seen enough in the world of rocks I can tell. e see examples of all kinds of rock structure made by intersections of cooling cracks or intersections of cracks, cleavage or bedding planes. There are many places on the earth where such features are common.These are box -in-box joints or box stone.


As far as Simon Bolivars statue, I was just kidding . Just as if I were making pictures my imagination created (like as when we were kids looking up at cumulus clouds and calling out the animals we could see)

@gungasnake,
I was looking at the photo again and ired to me that this may be next gen LIDAR. The "creations" of strait lines is often a function of the limit of resolution of the software. The technique is called "Slopeshading" where the LIDAR doesn't record actual changes in distance to the scanner, but reads a "delta", a change in in distance and records it either as a black or white.
This may be more associated with "smoothing" than ctul ground features . Not sure though, wed need to get the stats of the actual scans.

LIDAr can fool because it has a habit of "creating' squares an smooth triangle shapes if the shots aren't resolved enough
