Technical Overview: ‘Stonehenge’ Discovered on Mars?

‘Stonehenge’ Discovered on Mars? This year has seen an abundant amount of mysterious discoveries both here on Earth and in outer Space; from a Superhenge in Britain to countless geological formations of interest discovered across our tiny solar system.

McKinley, has been under intense scrutiny as of late and a new study is showing that the nation’s highest peak doesn’t have a pair of feet, or ten to be exact, to stand on. The numbers are in, and neither is it the result of tectonic plates shifting nor sabotage, but rather advances in technology have allowed us to better measure the elevation at the surface of the Earth, resulting in a more accurate summit height of Alaska’s natural treasure from 20,320 to 20,310.  Denali National Park was...
