And yet there seems to be so much more happening in those photos...
- Why are the three satellites in such different condition compared to each other?
Why does one satellite show such a clean internal tower structure while the one next to it is so much more eroded as if it was several millennia older?
Why does the satellite at the other end still maintain so much of its integrity compared to the other two?
How did the builders decide on the materials and methods to build each of those satellites to result in such different aging characteristics for each one?
Might each of the satellites be a prototype of different technology before the builders decided on constructing the larger complement?
Was the larger version constructed after the satellites had been aging for a long time so that the most robust satellite design was chosen when finally building the larger version?
How do we know that the internal tower structure is original vs. a retro-modification made by a later culture to clean up the eroding mess so that they could make it their own?
Why does the tower structure not include a deliberately crafted (e.g., indented, staggered, etc.) surface that would better accept the surrounding planar (or stepped) facing blocks that would "interlock" into place rather than maintain such a relatively smooth surface which begs for the outer facings to eventually slough off?
Why are there only 2 boat pits for 3 satellites?
It's not so obvious (to me at least) what's really going on there.
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
