Scientists agree: There was life on Mars, but a ‘catastrophic event’ wiped it out
It seems that scientists now agree that there was life on the red planet in the distant past, but ‘something big’ happened in the distant past that turned Mars into a desolate place. Several researchers, among them Dr. Brandenburg and Lewis Dartnell, a UK Space Agency researcher, believe Mars was habitable in the distant past.
Even though the theory from Dr. Brandenburg is different from that from Mr. Lewis Dartnell, both of them agree that the red planet was very different in the past.
Mr. Dartnell 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.
Mr. Dartnell’s hypothesis of life on Mars came after researchers from NASA found out, with the help of the Curiosity Rover, unexpectedly high levels of water beneath the surface of Mars and also separate evidence that it once had a continental crust, much like ours.
These new pieces of evidence point towards very big odds that Mars developed life millions of years ago.
Dr. Brandenburg, on the other hand, believes that Mars had life in the distant past and that it had more than enough time to develop into intelligent organisms.
According to Dr. John Brandenburg, there is enough evidence to prove that at least two major nuclear blasts 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. Dr. John Brandenburg has a Ph.D. in Theoretical Plasma Physics from the University of California and he is currently working as a plasma physicist at Orbital Technologies in Madison Wisconsin. 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.
