A Google geek has found what he believes is a 'space station' on Mars.

He found the spec on the Red Planet by accident but has provided fellow explorers with the coordinates of the 'object' so they can discover it for themselves.

American armchair astronaut David Martines posted a clip of his trip to the surface of the planet on YouTube.

He used the search giant's maps of the astral body and his video has already clocked up a staggering 58,000 views.

David explains how he found the 'space station' or possibly 'power station' quite by accident at coordinates 71 49'19.73"N 29 33'06.53"W.

Unlike mountains and other features on the surface, the white 'building' appears to have blue and red stripes painted on it.

According to David's calculations it is also huge - measuring 700ft long by 150ft wide.

The object definitely appears not to be a natural object.  Is this just some kind of digital artifact?  To read the rest of the article, and view the YouTube video, click here.
