The Mars Mystery: The Secret Connection between Earth and the Red Planetby Graham Hancock
Synopses & Reviews
An asteroid transformed Mars from a lush planet with rivers and oceans into a bleak and icy hell. Is Earth condemned to the same fate, or can we protect ourselves and our planet from extinction?
In his most riveting and revealing book yet, Graham Hancock examines the evidence that the barren Red Planet was once home to a lush environment of flowing rivers, lakes, and oceans. Could Mars have sustained life and civilization?
Megaliths found on the parched shores of Cydonia, a former Martian ocean, mirror the geometrical conventions of the pyramids at Egypt's Giza necropolis. Especially startling is a Sphinx-like structure depicting a face with distinguishable diadem, teeth, mouth and an Egyptian-style headdress. Might there be a connection between the structures of Egypt and those of Mars? Why does NASA continue to dismiss these remarkable anomalies as a trick of light? Hancock points to the intriguing possibility that ancient Martian civilization is communicating with us through the remarkable structures it left behind.
In exploring the possible traces left by the Martian civilization and the cosmic cataclysm that may have ended it, The Mars Mystery is both an illumination of our ancient past and a warning--that we still have time to heed--about our ultimate fate.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
The best-selling co-author of The Message of the Sphinx present startling evidence that links ancient Egyptian monuments with an investigation into mysterious pyramidal structures and a Sphinx-like "face" photographed on the surface of Mars. Reprint. 35,000 first printing.
