The Martian Codex: More Reflections from Mars


George J. Haas and William R. Saunders

  Our new book, The Martian Codex: More Reflections from Mars has arrived. In a sense, it is a sequel to our first book The Cydonia Codex: Reflections from Mars. The new book showcases our steadfast commitment to a fair and objective exploration of the many anomalous structures that have been observed on Mars. Over the past 15 years my co-author, William Saunders and I have documented a multitude of geoglyphic structures on the surface of Mars that appear to have a direct correlation with a unique style of terrestrial artwork produced throughout the cultures of North and South America.

The new book consists of 14 chapters that are divided into two sections, including over 200 photographs and illustrations. The first half of the book begins with a short review of the past 30-year history of the Face on Mars beginning with NASA’s 1976 Viking mission, right up to British Mars Express orbiter launched in 2006. This preliminary review concludes with the 2007 MRO HiRISE image of the Face, which provides overwhelming evidence that this face-like formation is actually a two-faced structure that mimics a set of masks found on a temple located in Cerros, Mexico. The remaining chapters in the fist section discuss a select group of geoglyphic formations within the Cydonia area including The Hollow, The Key and the much-debated D&M Pyramid that all share a distinct iconographic link with Pre-Columbian artwork.

The second portion of the book expands our research beyond the boundaries of Cydonia by exploring additional examples of two-faced and composite structures throughout the red planet. Drawing from an opus of archaeological scholarship and cutting edge discovery we document a series of reoccurring motifs by providing side-by-side comparisons of Martian geoglyphs with their terrestrial counterparts. The results substantiate a commonality between two worlds that both depict specific gods and characters that parallel the creation mythology of the Maya, as recorded in their sacred book known as the Popol Vuh.
The new book is release through
