This tiny moon of Mars is an enigma all on it's own with out having to drag it into this crater chain investigation. Looking at Phobos reminds one of what an outpost in space may look like after war. One researcher noted that, "Phobos and Deimos may someday be useful as "space stations" from which to study Mars or as intermediate stops to and from the Martian surface; especially if the presence of ice is confirmed." (JPL, Martian Moon Phobos Hip-Deep In Powder, September 11, 1998) 1 For more interesting information and pictures check the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) web site listed under the links.
But drag it in we must as there are many crater chains that look like strafing runs like our air craft make. Only these "bullets" would have to been the size of the bombs used on Japan to end the war. Note that many of the chains are not in ejecta alignment with Stickney crater.


As with Mars, here we see the evidence of CS type crater chains in abundance. The statement by the researcher above may be truer than they ever suspected. We agree that it would, and probably was a “space station” at one time. But what ever was there, or remains is at least buried heavily in dust. We can visualize a much cleaner surface prior to what ever sequentially and simultaneously impacted this tiny moon. If it was a base of some kind, then it obviously was very important to receive this much attention. These theoretical possibilities are based on the stupendous odds that these CS types of crater chains are not happening by chance. There needs to be much more serious investigative research into this anomalous pattern of nonrandomness.
