Strange, Deep Hole on Mars Puzzles NASA

Mystery Hole On Mars

     You’d think NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has seen everything there is to see on the Martian surface in the 11 years it’s orbited our nearest neighbour, but a snapshot taken over the planet’s South Pole has revealed something we can’t explain.

While the planet’s entire surface is pocked with various depressions and craters, a vast pit spotted among the “Swiss cheese terrain” of melting frozen carbon dioxide appears to be a bit deeper than your average hole, leaving astronomers to try and figure out what made it.

Strange Alien Being with conical head spotted on the surface of Mars

A while ago NASA confirmed that life on Mars could still be discovered but although NASA’s curiosity mars rover still scouring the surface of Mars no sign of life has yet to be found.

Or may they have overlooked something?

On the 1151 Martian day or SOL 1151 of the rover’s mission on Mars (November 2, 2015), the Curiosity captured something what seems to be an alien who stands in a gap of a big rock.

Although skeptics will say that this is just another case of pareidolia in the image a head, eyes, torso, arms and legs can clearly be distinguished.

The head appears to be conical, like a bird head. Left leg/foot is sticking out while the left arm folded across the chest touching the elbow of the right arm.

According to physicist Dr. John Brandenburg, who has published a study the Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics, suggesting that two races of beings, the Cydonians and the Utopians, were killed off in dual nuclear explosions that left Mars in the state we currently observe it today.

There is plenty of archaeological evidence of prior life on Mars and as crazy as it might sound, it’s quite possible that Mars still is inhabited by a form of strange life considering the being depicted in Curiosity’s intriguing image.

Alien Bugs Won’t Escape on Earth, Say Scientists



Alien Bugs Won't Escape on Earth, Say Scientists

     A leading scientist has assured us all that alien microbes that may have hitched a ride to Earth on returning rockets will not be allowed to escape.

Dr John Rummel, a scientist at the Seti Institute in California, said: “If we bring samples back from either Europa or Mars, we will contain them until hazard testing demonstrates that there is no danger and no life, or continue the containment indefinitely while we study the material.”

NASA Scientists Prepare For Life On Mars



NASA Scientists Prepare For Life On Mars

Four men and two women will spend eight months in a dome on a Hawaiian volcano, as part of a human behavior study designed to help NASA prepare astronauts for the journey to Mars.

     January 21, 2017 —The eight-month journey to Mars is expected to be arduous, with its cramped conditions, isolation, and monotony. By simulating Mars-like conditions on Earth, NASA hopes to learn how to mitigate the challenges.

On Thursday, the latest simulation began. Four men and two women – carefully selected from over 700 applicants – moved into a vinyl-coated pod just below the summit of Mauna Loa, the world’s largest active volcano. During their eight-month stay, which mimics the journey to and life on Mars, they will eat primarily freeze-dried foods, have limited personal space, and experience a 20-minute lag in communications (the length of time it takes a message to travel from Mars to Earth).

Search for Alien Life Needs Human Mars Missions

Search for Alien Life Needs Human Mars Missions

      Ellen Stofan, current NASA chief scientist, said sending humans to Mars would be a powerful step in the search for life beyond Earth.

[of Mars] … to really get at the question of not just did life evolve on Mars, but what is the nature of that life,” Stofan said at a scientific workshop in Irvine, California, hosted by the National Academy of Sciences. “To me, we’re going to go Mars because Mars holds the answers to such fundamental scientific questions that we’re trying to ask.”

The workshop, titled “Searching for Life Across Space and Time,” drew together leading scientists who are, through various avenues, working to find signs of alien life in Earth’s solar system and beyond. Stofan has argued before for the scientific benefits of a human mission to the Red Planet.

Signature of Past Life on Mars?

Signature of Past Life on Mars

      During its wheeled treks on the Red Planet, NASA’s Spirit rover may have encountered a potential signature of past life on Mars, report scientists at Arizona State University (ASU).

To help make their case, the researchers have contrasted Spirit’s study of “Home Plate” — a plateau of layered rocks that the robot explored during the early part of its third year on Mars — with features found within active hot spring/geyser discharge channels at a site in northern Chile called El Tatio.

The work has resulted in a provocative paper: “Silica deposits on Mars with features resembling hot spring biosignatures at El Tatio in Chile.” …
