The Alien Connection

by M. J. Craig

 * 2017: NEW Revised and Expanded Edition 

350 pages, 166 b/w images (eBook, 66 images in colour)

Published by Sentinel 8

  • * FEATURES 150+ b/w photos from NASA and the European Space Agency

  • * WHY HAS NASA NOT ANNOUNCED to the world the greatest scientific discovery ever made in the history of space exploration?

  • * DO YOU WANT TO KNOW what has REALLY been discovered by the Orbiters and Rovers on the Planet Mars?​​​

While scientists spend billions of dollars confirming that microbes live in the Martian soil, people sitting at home on their computers studying the Mars images, are making far more astounding discoveries ... they have found the possible archaeological remains of an extraterrestrial civilization!!

Hard to believe? Well, this challenging book invites you to take a look at the astounding pictures yourself and make up your own mind ...

  • SECRET MARS presents over 100 incredible images taken by American and European spacecraft that reveal possible evidence of a civilization that once lived and may still live, on the Planet Mars ... powerful evidence that scientists are ignoring!

  • SECRET MARS also reveals the shocking reason why NASA are forbidden to tell the world about what has been found.

"All I'm saying is take a look at the strange geometrical objects in these pictures from Mars. Most of them may just be odd-looking rocks, but if just ONE of these is artificial - and it doesn't say 'Made by NASA' stamped on it - then we may be looking at archaeology from an ancient Martian race"

- M J Craig, author of Secret Mars

"This is probably the best written book on the subject of hard evidence revealing an extraterrestrial presence in our solar system ... A fascinating work that needs to be read by everyone!"
-- Two-Bit, USA --

"Perhaps most impressively about this book, Mars is once again conjured as an exciting, romantic frontier; on reading it, you just want to speed down to the pub and start a huge debate. In short, fascinating."

Nexus Magazine Review


NASA seems intent on avoiding the search for life on Mars - otherwise why wouldn't it send rovers to locations where water is suspected to be present, rather than to places where water used to be?

So asks Wiltshire-based researcher M. J. Craig in Secret Mars. He taps into scientific findings but poses questions which most scientists won't or can't.

  Craig presents numerous NASA and ESA images, along with their URL sources, which other researchers have zoomed in on to find anomalies. The images show the presence of liquid water including lakes, possible signs of life and perhaps evidence for the past existence of advanced civilization - either before or perhaps after major catastrophes which caused the "death" of the Red Planet.
  Photographs taken from various Mars rovers reveal an array of artefacts, such as a square metal box, a gear-box mechanism, a spanner-like object, a broken plate and fossil-like forms. Satellite imagery shows unnatural geometries and what could be the ruins of artificial structures. Craig also compares 1976 Viking images with more recent, higher-resolution imagery of the so-called "Face on Mars" and other anomalous structures in the Cydonia region.
  Some power higher than our space agencies doesn't want us to know the truth. It's time for the cover-up to end, Craig believes, because humanity has a right to know our place in "the scheme of life".

Goodreads Review

Here is the perfect book if you're tired of all the sensationalist, apocryphal internet stories concerning NASA's various missions to Mars - or the stories that maybe aren't sensationalist and apocryphal ENOUGH.

Mr Craig adopts an extremely readable style as he takes you through the stubborn - some might say conspiracy-laden - choices that NASA has taken in exploring the Red Planet, in places citing decades-long scholarly research, in other places falling back on the position of wide-eyed layman.

  Special mention should go to the lavish illustrations (complete with web-links, so you can delve all the deeper) - and if any of the photographs of the 'artificial' objects seem too good to be true, rest assured they're thoroughly deconstructed.

  Perhaps most impressively about this book, Mars is once again conjured as an exciting, romantic frontier; on reading it, you just want to speed down to the pub and start a huge debate. In short, fascinating."

- Mr J, (Review from


Fortean Times Magazine



  As one online reviewer of this book notes, there is now so much information relevant to the topic of evidence of intelligent life on Mars that it is difficult to know where to start. Craig’s fascinating survey of images from the Red Planet is intended to be a necessary briefing for that layperson.

It is well written and full of thoughtful analyses of over 100 fascinating photos of what appear to be regular structures ranging from gears and cubes up to city-sized ruins... He asks, “If these objects are artificial, how did they get there?” If they aren’t the remains of a native civilization, are they evidence of extra-solar alien visitors?  Reasonable questions with no answer. The view might be different, Craig argues, if NASA lifted its sight from microbes in the dust to the larger objects littering the landscape.  It wouldn’t be a Mars book without conspiracy theories and Craig asks some interesting questions about perceived lies, secrecy and cover-ups. Even if you don’t agree with him, the enigmatic images remain fascinating. We are on the verge of several manned missions to Mars; can we hope that these issues will be definitively answered?

Erich von Däniken

Author of "Chariots of the Gods"

"Your MARS book is great and I am fully on your side. There was definitely a civilization on Mars. Not millions of years ago - only 15,000 to 20,000 years in the past."


Amazon Reviews

"This is probably the best written book

on the subject of hard evidence revealing an

extraterrestrial presence in our solar system...

A fascinating work that needs

to be read by everyone!"
-- Two-Bit, USA --


"Great introduction to the Alien conspiracy."
-- Chris, UK --

"An absolute must-read for anyone interested

in the “anomalies” on the surface of Mars.

I had to read it all in only two sittings,

it was too interesting to put down."
-- F S Frederick, USA --


"An excellent introduction to the Mars controversy

and ancient alien theory...very well written, topics

well organized and with even a couple of new things to

discover even if you are like me and read a lot

over the years on this already...

highly recommended to anyone who comes in to

this subject without any pre-conceived ideas,

pro or against... Buy it now, it's really good."

-- S Bernardo, Portugal --

"I really like the writers style,

not trying to force an opinion on us...

this is a great book, compelling stuff."
-- Malpaso Man, UK --


"Could not put the book down until completed --- engrossing."
-- Jeffrey Partridge, UK --


​"This is an unusually open-minded book.

The author is no wild-eyed conspiracy theorist, but someone who

genuinely wonders why NASA doesn't send its explorers

to places where there may well be signs of life."
-- Tome Raider, UK --

"A well written book with lots of

photographs to support the text...

I think that every person should get a copy

of this book and read it."
-- Pfe, USA --


"I am not quite finished reading this book yet,

but so far it is a wonderful read with sharp photos

and a wealth of information. M. J. Craig writes so it

reads easy and smooth and keeps your interest throughout.

I have several books on Mars and Moon artifacts

and I have to say this is one I have enjoyed the most.

I highly recommend this book if you

are interested on what is really on Mars!

UPDATE: finished the book. Could not put it down!

Great to the very end! Highly recommend."

-- Adam Link, USA --


"Brilliantly researched with an unbiased look

at the evidence. A must-read for people wanting to

research the government's/NASA'S unwillingness

to disclose the real truth on artificial artifacts

on Mars and the Moon."
-- Ryan Banks, UK --

Book Reviews: Secret Mars
  • IMAGE Gallery from "Secret Mars"

Here you will find all the images presented in my book as evidence for the possible existence of Liquid Water, Fossils, Vegetation and Artificial Objects on the surface of Mars (plus a few things on the Moon too, and elsewhere in the solar system).

My gratitude goes to the people who shared their discoveries in these pictures with a desire to illuminate humanity: Richard Hoagland, Vince DiPietro, Greg Molenaar, Mark Carlotto, Joseph Skipper, Rami Bar Ilan and Efrain Palermo. Also, Thomas Jensen, Will Farrar, Michael Ivey, Coach Billy Carson, Gary Proffitt, Eduardo Lucena, Jason Hunter, Rolf Varga, Tim Beech, Marcela Bravo, Larry Roy, Maya, Kevin Brant, Marcus Johannsen and Gerald Turner. We should also mention Tobias Owen, the NASA scientist who found "The Face on Mars" way back in 1976, and who perhaps unwittingly helped to open our eyes...
