The hole measures about 330 feet (100 meters) in diameter and is located to the northeast of Arsia Mons, one of the largest volcanoes on Mars.

A few years ago, a football field-sized, dark and very deep hole was discovered by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
Is it an opening to a subsurface cave, or other much more deeper realms of Mars?
Later, more similar holes were discovered.
Scientists think the holes could be entrances to underground Martian caves.
Are these giant holes leading to a secret underground world on Mars?
The hole measures about 330 feet (100 meters) in diameter and is located to the northeast of Arsia Mons, one of the largest volcanoes on Mars.

Black spots have been discovered on Mars that are so dark that nothing inside can be seen. Quite possibly, the spots are entrances to deep underground caves capable of protecting Martian life, were it to exist. The unusual hole pictured above was found on the slopes of the giant Martian volcano Arsia Mons. The above image was captured three weeks ago by the HiRISE instrument onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter currently circling Mars.Credits: Credit: NASA, JPL, U. Arizona
According to experts studying the MRO’s images, the feature is not an impact crater; it lacks a circular, raised or ejecta. The hole’s darkness is impenetrable because of its sufficient depth, so any details of the terrain inside it, cannot be seen.

Similar holes, dark, impenetrable to sunlight and having the size of a football field have been discovered on Mars by the NASA Mars Odyssey and its Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS).
They are located on the flanks of Arsia Mons, southernmost of the massive Tharsis ridge shield volcanoes, a region with widespread collapse pits and grabens which may indicate an abundance of subsurface void spaces.
There are several unanswered questions.
What are these giant sinkholes?
How were they created?
Are they entrances to a secret underground world where life could exist?

Strange object with something inside falls down from space in Brazil

A metal object of unknown origin fell down on Earth in the Brazilian state of Maranhao. The unusual event caused panic among the local population. The ball-shaped, 30-kilo object about one meter in diameter was found on Feb. 22.

Residents of the village of Riacho dos Pocos were the first to have seen the space ball. Jose Valdir Mendes said that he had heard the strong roaring sound on Wednesday morning, at about 06:00 local time. Several moments later, an explosion occurred near his home. The man got frightened and ordered his wife not to go out. However, the man was very curious to see what was happening outside, so he went out. He found the strange object in his garden, MR Noticias reports.

It appears that the ball is made of metal alloy. The object has a small opening in it. Inside, the ball is hollow, but there is something hidden inside the ball. The locals tried to lift the ball and shake it, and they could feel that there was something moving inside the object.

Fortunately, the ball did not injure anyone during the landing. The bizarre space object caused some damage to the Mendes family, though. The ball left a crater in the ground and harmed a cashew tree.

The rumors about the mysterious ball from space have already reached neighboring villages and towns. Crowds of people have been coming to Riacho dos Pocos for two days already to take a look at the strange object.

"The townsfolk say that the roar was terrible. Some believed that it was the end of the world, others thought that it was an alien spaceship landing. I personally think that it is a fragment of a space satellite," O Imparcial publication quoted local professor Max Mauro Garreto as saying.

Indeed, the metal ball that crashed on Earth in Brazil looks like many other objects that fall down on the planet every now and then. Something like that has recently caused panic in Namibia. A metal sphere weighing nearly 6 kilos was found in the middle of December in Nabibia's Omusati province. The local authorities classified the object and asked NASA and ESA for help. Independent experts said that the Namibian ball was only a 39-litre fuel tank from Europe's Ariane booster rocket.

A similar ball crashed in the north-west of Colorado, the USA, in the beginning of 2011. The mystery was unraveled quickly. The Cyrillic inscription on the surface of the object said that it was a tank of the pressurization system of Zenit- 3SLB booster rocket. 



[direct translate from Spanish] The mutilated animals are a constant theme in various parts of the world. Specific organs are removed, wounds are cauterized and animals are found far from where they were kidnapped. This phenomenon is lately occurring in Argentina. Cases such as the Colonia La Sesteada, where 51 cows appeared mutilated, make us wonder what the aliens do with the organs removed.
