Humanity Appeared On Mars And Then Moved To Earth?

Published

on

Not so long ago, American astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson published a picture taken by a Martian reconnaissance helicopter.

It shows shadows that resemble a McDonald’s sign. Of course, this is a joke, but, as scientists believe, there is some truth in it. Moreover, a number of studies indicate that life originally originated on Mars.
Is there life on Mars? This question is being asked by astronomers and astronauts who continue their research and missions to the Red Planet. They are all trying to figure out what happened on Mars billions of years ago, and whether people or other creatures lived on it, even if they were microorganisms.

You might think this question is out of date, but the controversy over the Red Planet continues to this day. They arise among space lovers, supporters of unusual theories, and even in scientific circles.
Astrophysicists, who put forward hypotheses about the existence of life on this planet, ask questions: did life originate as we know it on Mars? Did humans make the Red Planet uninhabitable?
Life originated on Mars?
In the film “Interstellar” by British director Christopher Nolan, it is said that the Earth has become uninhabitable, and people have practically no time left to escape. If there is no time for salvation, then why not save humanity as a whole?
According to the plot of the film, a certain professor has developed a plan according to which a spaceship with 5 thousand frozen human embryos will have to go to a planet suitable for life.

But first you need to find it, which is what the main characters do. Could Mars become such a planet, based on the scenario of this film? Or is it fiction reaching the point of absurdity?
Jonathan Lunin, a planetary scientist at Cornell University in New York, called the scientific debate that has been going on for nearly 10 years among astronomers and astronauts as a big dilemma.
It should be noted that they deployed after the discovery on Mars of traces of microorganisms, water, climate change and various chemicals necessary for the life of terrestrial organisms, including sulfur, nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and carbon.
These discoveries became the basis for a crazy new theory that life, as we know it now, originated on Mars! But there are questions that haunt the supporters of this theory: did life on Mars originate independently of the earth? Or did one planet “transfer” organic compounds and microorganisms with the help of meteorites about 3.8 billion years ago?
Life on Mars. Have we come from this planet to Earth?
Some scientists are inclined to assume that life originally originated on Mars. They made a similar conclusion based on the study of samples of Martian soil obtained during the space mission. According to them, life on Earth appeared thanks to meteorites from Mars, which were attended by microorganisms.
This hypothesis is not so far from the real facts. According to the International Meteorite Collectors Association (IMCA), Martian meteorites have been found not only in Antarctica, but in various areas around the world.
Mars Planet

About 160 fragments of Martian meteorites could have fallen to Earth millions of years ago, carrying the primary microorganisms that eventually made life on the planet as we know it today.
In 2013, at the conference “In Search of Life on Mars,” John Grottzinger, professor of geology at California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, said that signs of life on Mars would help in the study of early life on Earth and answer the question: how did life on our planet originate?
Incidentally, the strangest theory is that life originally originated on Mars. Moreover, it was the first home for people, but after its destruction (as is now happening with the Earth), they began to look for a new planet in space, potentially suitable for life. So people found the Earth, later moving to it!
And the theory that Christopher Nolan put forward in Interstellar has a right to exist. If we are guided by scientific research, life could exist on Mars in the form in which we know it now, but microorganisms, and not people themselves, originally came to Earth.
Did humans pollute Mars?
In 2021, a new theory emerged. Geneticist Christopher Mason, who said that more than 30 spacecraft have visited Mars since the era of space exploration, wondered: “What if humans inadvertently transferred primary life forms to Mars, and then discovered them and decided that life on this planet originated for billions of years back?”
“Although NASA and its Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) have precise and detailed protocols to ensure that their spaceships are free of organisms that might inadvertently travel during a space mission, in some cases there may have been disruptions,” says Mason.

He also emphasizes that when it comes to microorganisms, it is difficult to achieve complete sterility. For example, some microorganisms are found within us and on the surface of our skin, making it difficult for a spacecraft or lander to go into space without any form of primary life, despite all of NASA’s strict protocols.
Mason insists that when studying samples of Martian soil, it is necessary to separate microorganisms that were found directly on Mars from those that people “brought”.
In addition, scientists have confirmed that the Martian crater Jezero was a lake billions of years ago. This contradicts Mason’s theory of “pollution” of the Red Planet by humans, since this crater is an ideal place to search for traces of ancient microbial life!
Scientists are still striving to find out the answer to the question: are we the only living creatures in this galaxy? They also want to explore other planets suitable for life in case humanity cannot save the Earth from the effects of climate change.
But the question that plagues their minds still remains unanswered. Did life really begin on Mars? If so, it means that we were originally Martians, and then moved to Earth.

“Alien bases” may be hiding off the coast of Alaska, researchers say

Published

By

An organization of civilian volunteers dedicated to the study of
unidentified flying objects (UFOs) has issued a statement based on
decades of studying eyewitness reports. According to Mutual UFO Network,
“alien bases” may be hiding off the coast of Alaska, reports the-sun.com.

Researchers
say the deep waters in this region may hold something surprising. After
analyzing reports from the ship’s crew from 1945, they hypothesized
that alien objects could be lurking underwater, off the coast of the
state.

Alleged sightings of alien spacecraft nearly 80 years ago
have become a key point in research. Members of the organization believe
that UFOs move over water and may have “bases.”

Researchers
allege crew members on a U.S. Army transporter ship sailing past Island
Adak saw a massive UFO sized 150 to 200 feet emerge from the water.
Although these reports are nowhere to be found, UFO enthusiasts believe
the unidentified flying vehicles likely were used to commute to
different supposed alien bases hiding in the deep waters.

As
the “secret reports” of the sailors aren’t available, investigators
have taken it upon themselves to unravel the mystery surrounding the
unidentified flying objects and they believe the ocean has alien bases
that humans aren’t aware of.

Enthusiasts claim that UFOs may be
using “underwater networks” or wormholes as superhighways to travel
between points in the universe. UFO researcher Johnny Enoch added that
such objects could serve as a vehicle for aliens.

There are also
theories that other places on Earth could serve as bases for alien life.
A mountain in Seoul, South Korea is believed to be hiding a UFO,
according to Dr. Steven Greer.

An episode of the series “The
Alaska Triangle” features satellite imagery that claims to show one of
the “alien bases” in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of California.

Meanwhile,
another researcher featured in the program showed markings from the sea
bed that she claimed could have been roadways for aliens.

While
the mysteries of the ocean remain unsolved, researchers continue their
search, trying to unravel the mystery of what may be hiding in the
depths of the waters off the coast of Alaska.

Enormous City-Size Comet Racing Towards Earth Grows ‘Devil Horns’ After Massive Eruption

Published

By


A volcanic comet the size of a mid-sized US city has
violently exploded for the second time in four months as it continues
racing toward the earth. And following the massive eruption, the cloud
of ice and gas sprouted what looked like a pair of gigantic devil horns.

The city-sized comet, named 12P/Pons-Brooks, is a cryovolcanic — or
cold volcano — comet. It has a solid nucleus, with an estimated diameter
of 18.6 miles, and is filled with a mix of ice, dust and gas known as
cryomagma. The nucleus is surrounded by a fuzzy cloud of gas called a
coma, which leaks out of the comet’s interior.

When solar radiation heats the comet’s insides, the pressure builds up
and the comet violently explodes, ejaculating its ice-cold innards into
space through seeping cracks in the nucleus’s shell.

Live Science report:
On Oct. 5, astronomers detected a large outburst from 12P, after the
comet became dozens of times brighter due to the extra light reflecting
from its expanded coma, according to the British Astronomical Association (BAA), which has been closely monitoring the comet 

Over the next few days, the comet’s coma expanded further and developed its “peculiar horns,” Spaceweather.com
reported. Some experts joked that the irregular shape of the coma also
makes the comet look like a science fiction spaceship, such as the
Millennium Falcon from Star Wars.

The unusual shape of the comet’s coma is likely due to an irregularity in the shape of 12P’s nucleus, Richard Miles, a BAA astronomer, told Live Science after the comet’s previous eruption.
The outflowing gas is likely being partially obstructed by a notch
sticking out on the nucleus, Miles said. As the gas continues to expand
away from the comet, the irregularity in the coma’s shape becomes more
defined and noticeable, he added.

12P is currently hurtling toward the inner solar system, where it
will be slingshotted around the sun on its highly elliptical 71-year
orbit around our home star — similar to the green comet Nishimura, which
pulled off a near-identical maneuver on Sept. 17

12P will reach its closest point to Earth on April 21, 2024, when it
may become visible to the naked eye before being catapulted back toward
the outer solar system. It will not return until 2095.

This is the second time 12P has sprouted its horns this year. On July
20, astronomers witnessed the comet blow its top for the first time in
69 years (mainly due to its outbursts being less frequent and harder to
spot during the rest of its orbit). On that occasion, 12P’s coma grew to
around 143,000 miles (230,000 km), which is around 7,000 times wider
than the comet’s nucleus.

It is unclear how large the coma grew during the most recent
eruption, but there are signs the outburst was “twice as intense” as the
previous one, the BAA noted. By now, the coma has likely shrunk back to
near its normal size.

As 12P continues to race toward the sun, there is a high probability
that we will witness several more major eruptions. It is possible that
those eruptions will be even bigger than the most recent one as the
comet soaks up more solar radiation, according to Spaceweather.com.

But 12P is not the only volcanic comet that astronomers are currently
monitoring: 29P/Schwassmann-Wachmann (29P) — the most volatile volcanic
comet in the solar system — has also had several noticeable eruptions
in the last year.

In December 2022, 29P experienced its largest eruption in around 12 years, which sprayed around 1 million tons of cryomagma into space. And in April this year, for the first time ever, scientists accurately predicted one of 29P’s eruptions before it actually happened, thanks to a slight increase in the comet’s brightness in the lead-up to the icy explosion.
