Armchair astronaut's Mars Bio-station Alpha actually a cosmic ray artifact?

David Martines, a self-described "armchair astronaut," believes he has discovered, not life on Mars, but some sort of structure, whether alien or man-made. He made the discovery using Google Mars, an extraterrestrial adjunct to Google Earth, the Internet giant's popular virtual globe, map and geographical information program.
Google Mars was first released in early 2009.
Strangely though, after the YouTube video went viral, David Martines, removed it. That's the message you get if you try to play the video via any embedded versions, or go to the link.
However, in his narration on the video, captured prior to the video's deletion, David Martines said
“This is a video of something I discovered on Google Mars quite by accident. I call it Bio-station Alpha, because I’m just assuming that something lives in it or has lived in it.
“It’s very unusual in that it’s quite large, it’s over 700 feet long and 150 feet wide, it looks like it’s a cylinder or made up of cylinders. It could be a power station or it could be a biological containment or it could be a glorified garage – hope it’s not a weapon.
“Whoever put it up there had a purpose I’m sure. I couldn’t imagine what the purpose was. I couldn’t imagine why anybody would want to live on Mars.
“It could be a way-station for weary space travelers. It could also belong to NASA, I don’t know that they would admit that. I don’t know if they could pull off such a project without all the people seeing all the material going up there. I sort of doubt NASA has anything to do with this.
“I don’t know if NASA even knows about this.”

Wow - supercool !! Do you all think it's really a cosmic ray artifact, or do you think it's a structure built either by humans or ETs?
