A series of works exploring our red planet.
[Our thanks go to the A&E Networks and The History Channel specifically, without who’s influence the following would not have been possible]
Our first room presents some imagery resulting from the research and findings of the Dyathink Space Exploration Division. DSED is a charitable foundation set up to explore the geography, geology, archaeology and anthropology of the red planet. The images below offer a fascinating insight into the world of our galactic cousins. The dialogue box below the gallery provides a brief description of each image.

Figure 1. the rocky red landscape which covers much of Mars' surface.
Figure 2. a very large crater - wider than 24 football pitches - from which traces of an unknown gas can be seen escaping.
Figure 3. our team were excited to capture this extremely clear image of a 30m tall tree with an enormous daisy-like head.
Figure 4. Another huge crater filled with what appears to be a bubbling liquid
Figures 3 & 4 are of particular interest as they suggest the planet does support life. Whether this extends to extra-terrestrial beings we may be able to make contact with is still an open question.
However, the space station sonar picked up the inter-stellar wave maps illustrated in Figures 5-8 below, which suggests there may be some form of communication which we do not yet understand.
FOOTNOTE - Other organisations have attempted to fact-find on Mars. Notably, the European Space Agency's Schiaparelli mission, covered by our friends at the BBC.
FOOTNOTE 2 - Alternatively, Figures 5-8 and the aerial images might be digitally manipulated photographs of a pile of fishing nets at Guernsey harbour, and the volcanic activity might be footage of homemade minestrone soup on the boil

Figure 5. Clear representation of what appears to be an explosive transmission of random ‘squiggle waves’ emanating from an eggcentric epicentre in a pseudo-cylindrical symmetric burst which to all intents and purposes, seems to increase in amplitude as it extends from the source.
Figure 6. Notably, many of the key features of Figure 5 are repeated. However, as we can see from the change in colour representation, much of the amplitude of the burst around the epicentre has remained the same, but with a significant change in frequency and content.
Figure 7. As with Figures 5 and 6, what appears to be an extremely explosive communication. A tangled mass of linguiditudinous samplology.
Figure 8. Our analysts suggest the above shows that the original communication was not at all well received, with a very significant level of disturbance amongst the mid-level stellobars across the diagonal of the central nebula. In addition, there is a high volume of chatter in the outer oscillatory ‘eyeholes’.
This is definitely supported by the following image picked up by ultra high-tech, special imaging equipment made available to our team by the military. The most exciting find yet! Whilst we cannot conclude from these images that Mars is inhabited by others, it is certainly evidence that we are not the only ones showing a keen interest in the planet. Of course, these may actually be probes from another nation state(s) - as referred to in the footnote below.
Aerial Image 1. The north-west escarpment. This shows what could be a large expanse of vegetation, which judging by the north-south displacement, may have emerged from a richly fertile lava flow, reaching right up to the oceanic bubble creases.
Aerial Image 2. Evidence of river flow leaving rich alluvial deposits – possibly metal – and a significant marshy outcrop.
Aerial Image 3. Possibly copper bearing ranges with broad plateaux, mixing with the natural red landscape and circling what might be a lake.
Aerial Image 4. A more typical, predominantly red surface area, which geologists speculate could even be a terminal moraine.
Particularly fascinating is this footage from within the crater of what would seem to be an active volcano.
Perhaps even more exciting were the markings below, found on a cave wall by our archaeologists. These are still being analysed back at HQ, but it's highly likely these were not made by accident and may perhaps been evidence of an alien language or other form of communication.
