Station Discovered on Mars!

This is pretty entertaining: "Armchair astronaut" David Martines claims to have discovered a mysterious structure on the surface of Mars by using Google Earth (well, Google Mars). His YouTube video of the "station" has racked up 852,000 views so far; in it, he claims to have discovered the anomaly while examining Mars using Google's handy tool, and estimates its size to be 700 feet by 150 feet. Check out his simulated voyage to Mars in the vid:

Perhaps this suggests why so many missions to Mars were destined to fail.... Here's what it looks like:

One news source points out the "red and blue painted stripes" on the station's structure. Hm. Last I checked, NASA hasn't yet responded to the announcement, but we can expect to hear from them soon. If not... I say silence = knowledge! ;-)

Secret alien science station, secret Space Defense Services outpost, or something more mundane? So: A poll!

Poll #1749585 Space Station on Mars?

What is it?

Secret alien science station.
Secret Space Defense Services outpost
Dude, seriously, remember the "face on Mars"? Just rocks and shadows.
I cannot answer this question or I'd have to kill you.
Other - see comments.

PS: Is it just me, or are many people experiencing failures of the interwebs - specifically, I can't see iframes, videos, and many images, including descriptions on eBay. I use IE7 and Firefox on Windows 7, and both are experiencing the same failure... perhaps something to do with Mars Station?
