New Horizons at Pluto
“These occultations are telling us about the environment near MU69, which we hope is debris free. I thought I would be bone tired at this point, but I’m not– I’m just excited for what’s ahead this week.So, next up is a drink and dinner here at the hotel in BA; then sleep, then on to Comodoro in the morning, and preps for the occultation data collect on Monday. Humans are an inquisitive species, New Horizons is conducting the farthest exploration in the history of humankind.
Hail exploration! Hail humankind! Hail science, and hail to the United States for supporting and leading the exploration of our solar system for over 50 years. THIS century is where Star Trek begins.”
Dr Alan Stern – Principle Investigator of New Horizons

Will Farrar’s Items:
Tim Saunders Items:
1- The Two shot of the Pump Sol 51 and Sol 64 to establish how two different camera viewpoints reduce the noise to signal ratio and have allowed me to extract the geometry to create a plausible 3D Model.
2- 2D Study To Show how I extract the Geometry.
3- To show the first Glimpse of the Artifact as a 3D model.
4- To show extracted 2D SECTIONAL Drawings (which I will embellish showing wall thickness and some color) offering an impression of the Internal surfaces and perhaps give clues to its purpose.
5- Speculation ? What could it be ? I think it is a type of Hydraulic Pump (or a Wheel Hub) ???
6- Atmosphere – Mars has a very high level of CO2 in its atmosphere, opposed to the levels found on Earth, which means Corrosion occurs very differently than what we are accustomed to seeing here on Earth…
EARTH ATMOSPHERE :
- Nitrogen – 78 percent.
- Oxygen – 21 percent.
- Argon – 0.93 percent
- Carbon dioxide – 0.038 percent.
MARS ATMOSPHERE :
- Carbon Dioxide 95.90 %
- Argon 2.00 %
- Nitrogen 0.14 %
- Carbon Monoxide 0.060 %
7- The Corrosion Factor / How CO2 here on Earth (underground or Under water – therefore with reduced O2) Provides us with a precedent and or Benchmark to help guide us to understand how Metallic materials may corrode on Mars…
8- Composition – How I used Original Mars Photos (wrapped around the inside of a sphere) to create a Lit Mars Environment and Background.
9- Bringing together all of the results of this study, I am able to show how this Artefact may have looked when new, when corroded a little and finally back to the original photo (also Close-ups required).

As a graphic designer and illustrator, he serviced small to large Canadian companies. For the past decade, he has worked as a storyboard artist and concept illustrator in film and television, and in commercial tv advertising. Andrew has a Bachelor of Arts from The University of British Columbia, a diploma in graphic design and illustration, and a Masters in Art Therapy.
Will Farrar grew up in Maryland where he started his career in technology at the young age of 16 and is currently the Information Technology Director for a national healthcare company as well as the man behind the Space Anomaly YouTube Channel WhatsUpInTheSky37 and the website whatsupinthesky.com.
He attributes his keen eye for spotting anomalies in imagery to his fascination with images returned from various spacecrafts as well as his travels around the United States visiting various national and state parks. Will is also known for applying various technological approaches in his hunt for anomalies in space imagery that has helped make his case of obfuscation in the past. Will is also an accomplished musician and artist.

Bob is a keen investor and after achieving his dream of financial independence decided to “retire” from the rat race in 2010. As a “child of the Space Age”, Bob was fascinated by space exploration and speculations about extra-terrestrial life from an early age. These have continued to be interests for him. Dr. Carl Sagan’s early speculations about the possible artificiality of the “Elysium Pyramids” on Mars have had a long term impact on his thinking.
In June 2000 Bob began the Cydonia Quest website as a personal exploration of the evidence for very ancient ET ruins in our Solar System. To date the research has mostly concentrated on Mars, and especially Cydonia. The website was inspired by the work of Richard C. Hoagland and his many collaborators in this field. Cydonia Quest is intended to be an additional resource to Hoagland’s own popular Enterprise Mission (TEM) website. It has also explored some of TEM’s more “out there” theories.
Kynthea, known in early Mars circles as “Mama Mars” is a San Francisco Bay Area Artist and the Artistic Director for the Mars Project. She sculpted the first ever Face on Mars along with the Cliff behind it that echoes from profile “face features”. This sculpture appeared on the first edition of “Monuments of Mars” by Richard C Hoagland and was later corroborated by computer analysis of Mark J. Carlotto. Then came the “Cody Mars Face” , unveiled at the Cody Conference where she contributed to discussions with other Anomalies Researchers including Richard C. Hoagland, Anthony West, Eugene Mallove, Tom Van Flandern and others.When the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) took provocative a photo of the Face on Mars she set about to sculpt the face once again, including the new data revealed in the NASA photo. That sculpture, the ‘Malta Bronze” and was featured on a later edition of the “Monuments of Mars” book cover designed by her. Kynthea organized the first Mars Exhibit and was a Key organizer of two JPL rallies in protest of NASA’s policies. She sculpted the Face several more times, and created a 3D computer model used in Mars Face animations featured on PAX TV. (ps: a funny note…the publisher of Monuments decided to rename her…using her original middle name (Lynne) as a last name without even consulting her! ). Kynthea dedicated more than 17 years to studying and sculpting the Face, her interest and research of Martian anomalies span over 35 years. She delights in her two grown sons.
Tim Saunders is a British national who grew-up near to the south-coast of the United Kingdom. Positively influenced by the nearby yachting and shipping scene, he chose his ideal career path at the age of ten when he decided to become a yacht designer. He followed in his father’s footsteps in Television Production for a few years which soon lead him – full circle – to become involved in a number of ‘then’ cutting-edge documentaries about Technology and Watersports, namely Tomorrow’s World, Horizon and a series named Waterfront. These experiences served to boost his interest to ‘create yachts’ for living and he soon found a place at the coveted Coventry University where he studied Industrial Design (Transportation). While this was one of only four colleges in the world that specialised in Automotive design, from the start he elected to apply this rich learning experience to create a career in yacht design.
Following his graduation, Tim was fortunate to have been offered appointments at many of the world’s highly revered yacht Design Studios, working on an array of live Superyacht projects of all different sizes, styles and uses. During what he affectionately calls his apprenticeship years, Tim honed a sharp eye for fine detail, problem solving and soon built-up a wide range of design and management skills during a circa. 10 year period. He gained a wealth of experience from many facets of the industry, custom design. production design, exterior styling, interior design, systems, naval architecture, materials and manufacturing – while working with many of the world’s most respected Naval Architects, Shipyards and Interior Cabinet (Furniture) Makers. In 1999 Tim established his first independent Design Studio, based in Holland, and rapidly became involved in the design of a number of new yachts ranging in size from 10m / 40 ft to 100m / 400 ft. Tim measured his success by finally fulfilling a long term wish to exhibit his work at the Monaco Yacht Show, which lead to key introductions that still generate a regular supply of commissions today. Following the appointment of a particularly large project, a 225m / 738’ vessel, he relocated his business to Chelsea Harbour in South-West London and set-up a larger Team. Some years later, in 2009, Tim chose to move his home to one of the natural crossroads of the world, Turkey, where he continues to reside with his young family on the Aegean coastline in the south east of this ancient country. Tim Saunders Yacht Design LTD continues to be very busy, currently working on multiple iconic custom superyachts for local and international Clients.
