NASA hiding life on Mars?
Story about the mysterious stone , found “Opportunity” on the Martian surface, gaining new momentum. Now the action moves from the Red Planet in a U.S. federal court.
Earlier this week, Ron Joseph, who introduced a neuroscientist and astrobiology, addressed to the temple of Themis with the requirement in court to force NASA to examine more carefully the mysterious Martian rock.
NASA rover inexplicably failed to comply with the basic requirements of science that involve conduct re-examination. Disagreement provide pictures in high quality looks strange and defies explanation – said in a petition filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco.
Representative of science requires that the court ordered NASA to re photoshoot stone, and from different angles, and then carefully examine the object and share the information with the public, the American newspaper writes Los Angeles Times.
What is the mystery of Martian rock? First, it is white on the edges and bright red in the middle. For this reason, and called it “donut”. Second, researchers working with the “Opportunity”, confirmed the uniqueness of the chemical composition of the stone – it’s not like any of the existing on Mars rocks – it has a lot of sulfur, manganese and magnesium.
But the most surprising is that the “donut” appeared out of nowhere. photo depicting stone made 12 days after photographing the Martian surface area on which it was not.
Meanwhile, the lead researcher of the program Mars Exploration Rover (MER) Opportunity Steve Squires does not see anything surprising discovery. He and his colleagues suggests that the stone could change its original location by the movement of the rover on the Martian surface. According to him, the rover could move his stone wheel. It is a version of a briefing for journalists last week expressed Squires.
But Joseph has its own version. His petition suggests that the stone was found is not a stone, but rather a fungus-like organism. If confirmed, it would mean that “Opportunity” has found life on Mars.
Joseph describes this formation as “full development of the organism in the form of bowls, similar in appearance to apothecia, which is a fungus symbiosis with cyanobacteria.”
By the way, Joseph “is not the last person in science.” Published under his authorship of several books: “Biological UFO evidence for the existence of extraterrestrial life» («Biological UFOs: Evidence for extraterrestrial extremophiles and life in space», 2012) and “Astrobiology: the origin of life and the end of Darwinism» («Astrobiology: The Origin of Life and the Death of Darwinism », 2001).
The newspaper was able to “reach out” to NASA by email and get a comment on this topic. NASA representative Bob Jacobs said the agency has no information, sufficient for this discussion. He also promised that NASA share with the public the results of the study as soon as better examine the chemical composition of Martian rocks:
As in the case of our other research missions , NASA will continue to discuss any new data and images related to stone, as well as other information as it becomes available.
