In the last three years, incredible discoveries were made by NASA’s very own ‘alien robots’ on the surface of Mars.
Methane… Lots of Methane on Mars
One of those unexplained and incredible discoveries is without a doubt the presence of Methane on Mars. On Earth, 90% of all methane in the atmosphere is produced by living organisms. Curiosity captured traces of methane on the Red Planet and scientists believe this could point to the presence of life on the red planet, at this precise moment, there are other possible explanations. Curiosity registered surges of methane gas levels using the SAM instrument.
These show that the base values are lower than thought, just 0.7 parts per billion in volume (ppmv), but data has also shown that the values increased significantly six times, on some occasions even exceeding seven ppmv, v10 times higher. This indicates that there is an additional source of methane of unknown origin.
So, can we rule out life on Mars? Of course not, everything is possible at the moment, and things are going to get even more exciting in the coming months.
For now, there is only one thing clear, something is causing methane levels to multiply up to ten times and then back down drastically. Many scientists firmly agree that Mars sustained life in the distant past, and it is likely that evidence of that life can be found deep inside Mars.
Water on Mars… Lots of Water
A new study has confirmed that Mars had a huge ocean. It is likely that much of the northern hemisphere was covered with water according to the work of an international team of scientists from the European Southern Observatory (ESO), the WM Keck Observatory and NASInfraredared Telescopes in Hawaii.
“Our study provides a solid estimate of how much water Mars once had, by determining how much later was lost to space,” said Geronimo Villanueva, a scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and lead author of the paper.
To calculate the amount of liquid water that Mars once had, researchers have spent six years making a map of the amount of heavy water in the current atmosphere of Mars. Heavy water or HDO is a natural compound that occurs over time when hydrogen-deuterium gives way to a water molecule (H2O). Heavy water evaporates much harder. By measuring the amount of this compound relative to the water molecules in the current atmosphere of Mars, researchers have been able to determine the amount of water that Mars has lost due to evaporation into space.
If there is water… life as we know it could exist right? So we have two major findings on Mars, the presence of water and methane, but there is more.
According to a study by scientists at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands, water flowed on Mars less than a million years ago, which is sooner than previously thought, and researchers do not rule out the possibility for the liquid coming back on the red planet in the near future. This was due to a favorable tilt of Mars just 500,000 years ago, and a similar tilt will occur again in 140,000 years. This is based on the fact that researchers now that Mars, at one point in the distant past had a different axial tilt which is basically the angle between the poles and its orbital plane.
Presence of Xenon-129 on Mars
As if water and Methane weren’t enough, scientists have found very large traces of Xenon-129 on Mars. Researchers say that the only process that we know, which produces Xenon-129 is a nuclear explosion. The Xenon Isotope mass from Mars is nearly identical to that found on Earth. This is one of the main factors that has led researchers like Dr. Brandenburg to suggest, that Mars had a developed civilization in the distant past and that this civilization had a terrible and cruel ending.
In a TV interview, Dr. Brandenburg stated: “Two great disasters happened on Mars,” he told Supreme Master TV, pointing to Utopia on a map. “One here, and then an asteroid impact happened here, and Cydonia was right in between them. That’s puzzling. Why would so many bad things happen in one area of mars that just so happened to have archaeology on it?”
Now, having said all of the above, how strange would it be that in the distant past, somehow, a civilization developed on Mars? A Martian civilization that would have left behind traces of their existence, buildings, statues, temples, hundreds of thousands of years old, now covered by the harsh Martian environment.
Is it possible that all of the images we have seen from Mars, beamed back by the Curiosity rover aren’t just Pareidolia as many suggest? What if in some of those images, we are looking at actual remains of structures on Mars?
Pseudoscience, or Pyramids on Mars?
Is this the ultimate evidence that ancient civilizations inhabited the red planet in the distant past? NASA’s Curiosity rover has photographed one of the most interesting images of the surface of Mars ever since it touched down on the red planet in 2012. Ufologists and researchers have already started speculating what this artifact is and according to many, it might actually be the cornerstone of a much larger pyramid buried under the Martian sand. Even though many people suggest that this is just another coincidental rock formation of the red planet, others believe that the perfect geometry of the structure suggests it is an artificially created construction and is not in any way Pareidolia or tricks of light and shadow.
Structures on Mars, or Pareidolia?
UFOlogists who have looked at this image from Mars believe we are looking at a structure that is definitely man-made. Scott Waring from UFO Sightings daily states “This is excellent evidence that life did exist and may still exist on Mars. Why are archaeologist around the globe not searching the NASA Mars archives for these unique discoveries? It seems most archeologists think inside the box.” Here is the link to the OFFICIAL NASA image where you can check out the object in question.
Statue on Mars, or wild imagination?
According to many UFOlogists and UFO hunters who, on a regular basis check NASA’s images from Mars, another artificial structure has been found on the surface of the red planet. Apparently, this structure resembles statues that are found on Earth.
Ultimate evidence of ancient civilizations on Mars, or Pareidolia? Are we looking at a statue on the surface of Mars? Or is it just another rock and Pareidolia is kicking in?
The Martian Crab, or just a weird rock?
Ultimate evidence of life on Mars: Did Curiosity snap an image of a mysterious “creature” on Mars? Many people believe that even though the surface conditions of Mars are far too harsh to sustain life, there is life beneath the Martian surface, and this new image of NASA’s curiosity rover has waken the debate among researchers, ufologists and media whether Mars supported life.
The “peculiar” image seems to show “something” hanging onto the cliffs on the red planet, at least that’s how it looks doesn’t it?
Can’t see the object in question?
Look carefully to the center-right part of the image, there, you will notice a strange object that clearly stands out from the rest of the surrounding landscape. There are rocks on Mars, there are rocks that might look a bit strange, and then you have objects like the one in this image. Something that is completely out-of-place and doesn’t seem to be a rock.
Who lost their helmet on Mars? Sigh.
The Martian helmet is another one of those crazy images. It definitely resembles a helmet like the ones soldiers used to wear in the past. This one actually looks like a World War I helmet, or at least resembles it a bit don’t you think? It could be just one of those really nicely shaped rocks credited to “Martian Mother Nature” but the similarity to an army helmet is just incredible.
As you can see from the above images, there are certainly some images which can be explained as Pareidolia. But other images are simply incredible and cannot be explained as Pareidolia and our brain playing tricks on us.
