Even yesterday on our website we have published photos and videos of strange objects, detected on the surface of Mars. It was an object of white color, similar to the station (see the full video in our news of yesterday), this object was called a "Bio Station Alpha". But Alfred McEwen said, that "Bio Station Alpha" is simply a glitch in the image, caused by cosmic rays, interfering with the camera. Alfred McEwen- is a planetary geologist at the Lunar and Planetary Lab at the University of Arizona and the director of the Planetary Imaging Research Laboratory. McEwen is the principal investigator of the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE), a powerful telescope currently orbiting Mars. When a cosmic rays passes through a camera's image sensor, it deposits a large amount of its electric charge in the pixels that it penetrates, it affects several pixels along its path, the result- is a bright streak on the image. McEwen said, that the digital compression software that converts the image into a JPEG file then sort of smears out the image, giving it that pixelated look,in the armchair astronaut's words, looks like it is "Bio Station Alpha". Note, that the magnetic field of Mars is very weak, much weaker than the Earth's magnetic field, that protects Earth from cosmic rays, so such cases, associated with the photography of Mars, may occur in the future.
