The D&M Pyramid of Mars
by Erol Torun
The following article is the result of work done in 1988 and 1989 concerning
an enigmatic landform located in the Cydonia Mensae region of Mars. The
object pictured here is five-sided, pyramidal, and located a few miles from
the Face on Mars. Like the Face, the D&M Pyramid is part of a complex
of unusual landforms that may be the product of intelligent design.
The article is subdivided into these sections:
Background - The Cydonia investigation
up to 1988, geological setting, and imagery selection criteria.
Geomorphology - Discussion of the
D&M Pyramid in terms of the geological processes believed to be active
Criteria - Reconstructive technique,
and criteria for analyzing this geometry for the mathematical and architectural
features that suggest intelligent design.
Geometry - Diagrams and conclusions.
References - Numbered references cited
in the above sections.
