The name of Phobos, the largest moon of Mars, means ‘fear’.
And that title certainly seems appropriate when you look at this sinister image, which shows the moon superimposed over the French city of Grenoble.The chilling picture serves as a reminder of the massive scale of the solar system, even when compared to major terrestrial landmarks.
The innovative project, designed to show the scale of the Red Planet and its satellites, is the brainchild of graphic artist Ludovic Celle.Despite the fact that Phobos is relatively close to earth, much about it remains a mystery to astronomers.The body is highly unusual, being oddly shaped and covered in huge craters.
Phobos has been spoken of as one possible target for a manned mission to Mars, as landing on the moon would be simpler than landing on the planet itself.

I find this story interesting in the light of previous revelations and happenings surrounding Phobos, such as the Europen Space agency noting that Phobos is 1/3 hollow, and possibly artificial.
Oh and there was the still mysterious failure of the planned Russian/Chinese Phobos Grunt mission.
And let’s not forget America’s favorite spaceman “Buzz” Aldrin revealing that there is an artificial Monolith on Phobos ( A La: 2001 a space odessy). And it’s strangely coincident that Arthur C Clarcke had another story of Alien contact with a Hollow space ship, and the manned mission originates from Phobos…Hmmmm?
*I love how this guy opens this article, really makes me chuckle. kind of softens you up and tries to induce cognitive dissonance in the reader, by presenting you with two contradictory views of America, and how things “operate” here.*

The United States, for its warts, has achieved much in its short 230-plus year history. It is a benevolent world superpower, for the most part, that serves as a beacon of hope and freedom for an increasingly oppressed world, even as it serves as a guardian against tyranny for as many as half of the world’s nearly seven billion people.
But a few chapters in our history – slavery, oppression of the Native American tribes, causes of the civil rights movement, and moments of unconstitutionality on the part of our elected leaders – serve as more than simple blemishes on an otherwise admirable record of defending liberty and freedom. One such stain is the way we’ve treated some of our nation’s military veterans.
The maltreatment is summed up in a recent federal case. In late July, a group of veterans managed to win a court order forcing the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to hand over a trove of documents detailing the department’s alleged Cold War-era drug experiments on Vietnam vets.Details of this sad episode in our history were contained in a 2009 class action suit. Filed by the Vietnam Veterans of America and individual soldiers, the suit charges the U.S. Army and the Central Intelligence Agency, with the help of former Nazi scientists, of using at least 7,800 vets as guinea pigs to test the effects of as many as 400 different types of drugs and chemicals. They included mescaline (psychedelic alkaloid), LSD (psychedelic drug), amphetamines, barbiturates, nerve agents and mustard gas.
