NASA has been really busy on Mars lately. In the last couple of years our entire views about Mars changed drastically: from a desolate planet thought to be dry and dead, today we see Mars as the next best thing close to Earth. All of a sudden, everyone loves Mars, and everyone is talking about the red planet. But what do NASA scientists say about the red planet?
There’s water… liquid water on Mars!
Not long ago, NASA scientists finally admitted that the red planet has actual rivers of flowing water on its surface. According to Lujdendra Ojha, a planetary scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology who made the discovery using images from NASA’s MRO, the red planet has liquid water on the surface. This discovery changed everything we thought about the red planet. And all of a sudden the possibility of Alien life somewhere on the red planet isn’t that far away.
“Mars is not the dry, arid planet that we thought of in the past … [and] liquid water has been found on Mars.” – James Green, NASA director of planetary sciences
Yes it is very possible that somewhere on Mars, there is extraterrestrial life – All options open
“The possibility of life in the interior of Mars has always been very high. There’s certainly water somewhere in the crust of Mars … It’s very likely, I think, that there is life somewhere in the crust of Mars.” – Alfred McEwen, Principal Investigator, HiRISE, University of Arizona (30:25)
There are thousands that believe that Mars is actually an inhabited planet today. Many people believe that even though life as we know it would find it nearly impossible to survive on the surface of Mars, maybe somehow somewhere on the red planet, life located beneath the harsh soil of Mars could have survived.
The mere fact that scientists announced there is liquid water on Mars make everyone think about little green Martian people walking around. Even though that might not be the case… exactly… it’s likely and not improbable that microorganisms can survive on Mars.
Of course there are those who believe that in the distant past, the red planet was inhabited by intelligent civilizations. Dr Brandeburg, who has a PhD in Theoretical Plasma Physics from the University of California believes that there is enough evidence to prove that at least two major nuclear blast went off on the surface of the red planet in the distant past. The theory proposed by Dr. Brandenburg is based on the traces of uranium and thorium that have been registered on the surface of Mars. This Martian civilization was wiped out by another hostile alien race from elsewhere in the universe. Dr Brandenburg warns that our civilization could face the same faith.
“We are going to Mars, our journey to Mars is a science led expedition right now, but soon I hope we’ll be sending humans to the red planet to explore and science will lead the way. And today’s announcement of a really fascinating result about current water on Mars is one of the reasons why I feel it’s even more imperative that we send astrobiologists and planetary scientists to Mars to explore the question of, ‘Is there current life on Mars?’ ” – John Grunsfeld, five time space flown astronaut, Associate Administrator Head of NASA Science Mission Directive
Mars was much Like Earth in the Past, something turned Mars into a nearly desolate and inhospitable planet… but what?
Dr Brandenburg firmly believes that The Red Planet was much different in the distant past and that Martian civilizations once called the red planet home. But what happened to them? What happened to Mars?
According to Dr. Brandenburg, ancient Martians known as Cydonians and Utopians were massacred in the giant nuclear attack – and evidence of the genocide can still be seen today. According to scientists there are very large traces of Xenon-129 on Mars and the only process that we know that produces Xenon-129 is a nuclear explosion. Scientists believe they’ve found powerful evidence of lost civilizations on the red planet and in fact, they believe they may have discovered a nuclear signature in the Martian atmosphere that matches that of Earth after a nuclear test. 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?”
You think Dr Brandenburg has lost it? Well think again, Brandenburg was actually involved in the Clementine Mission to the moon, part of a joint space mission between the BMDO (Ballistic Missile Defense Organization) and NASA: This mission discovered water at the Moon’s poles in 94’, Dr Brandenburg was the deputy manager of that mission.
“There is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been monitoring us for a very long time.” – Former NASA Astronaut and Princeton Physics Professor
“I happen to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet, and the UFO phenomenon is real… .” (source)
“Yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered … We are not alone in the universe, they have been coming here for a long time.” – Dr. Edgar Mitchell, 6th man to walk on the Moon, Doctor of Science.(source)
Mr. Lewis Dartnell, a UK Space Agency researcher believes that early microscopic life forms developed on Mars Millions of years ago, but mayor environmental events made Mars completely inhospitable. Mr Dartnell said: “Something catastrophic has gone wrong on Mars environmentally.” Mr Dartnell believes that life did develop on Mars and it was most likely single-celled. Mr. Dartnell said: “only the bacteria you would see under a microscope” – but whatever happened wiped out its chance of evolving into more complex creatures.”
“The atmosphere has been blown into space. It is too cold and dry for any life now.
“There were never any multi-celled life forms, animals or plants. The myths of canals on Mars will forever remain that.” Added Mr. Dartnell.
A Huge Ocean covered one-fifth of the red planet’s surface
In addition to the fact that researchers have now found liquid water flowing on the surface of the red planet, not long ago, experts discovered that in the distant past, the red planet wasn’t as Red as it is today. According to scholars, a huge primitive ocean covered one-fifth of the red planet’s surface. Mars was warm, wet and ideal for Alien life to develop. This ancient ocean on Mars was a mile deep I certain points of the planet holding over 2p million kilometers of water, more than is found the Arctic Ocean.
“A major question has been how much water did Mars actually have when it was young and how did it lose that water?” said Michael Mumma, a senior scientist at Nasa Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.
“Ultimately we can conclude this idea of an ocean covering 20% of the planet which opens the idea of habitability and the evolution of life on the planet,” said Geronimo Villanueva, the first author on the study.
“We now know Mars was wet for a much longer time than we thought before,” said Mumma. Nasa’s Curiosity rover has already shown that Mars had standing water for 1.5 billion years, longer than it took for life to emerge on Earth. “Now we see that Mars must have been wet for a period even longer,” Mumma added.
