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You might think this question is out of date, but the controversy over the Red Planet continues to this day.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.

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.

Mars monolith

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.

‘October Surprise’: Russia To Launch Nukes in Space

Published

on

By


The ‘national security threat’ announced on Wednesday is
about Russia planning to launch nuclear weapons in space, causing some
to speculate whether it’s really an election year ploy.

The panic began when House Intelligence Committee Chair Mike Turner
(R-Ohio) asked President Biden to declassify information about a
“serious national security threat”.

Modernity.news reports: The weapon would reportedly be designed to be used to take out satellites.

Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) responded by telling reporters he wanted “to assure the American people, there is no need for public alarm.”

The big, scary threat is serious business and involves a space-based nuke controlled by evil dictator Putin, but it’s also “not an immediate crisis,” according to what three members of the U.S. House Intelligence Committee have told Politico.

Okay, then. Just for election season, is it?

Zero Hedge reports: “So, the question is – was this:

a) a distraction from Biden’s broken brain, or

2) a last desperate attempt to get more funding for anything-but-the-US-border, or

iii) a path to pitching Putin as the uber-bad-guy again after his interview with Tucker Carlson.”

Just by coincidence, Mike Turner recently returned from Ukraine having lobbied for billions more in weapons and aid for Zelensky’s government.

Some questioned the timing, suggesting it might all be a deep state plot to keep American voters afraid when they hit the ballot box.

Speculation will now rage as to whether this is “the event,” real or imagined, that billionaires and elitists the world over have been building underground survival bunkers in preparation for.

Earth has built-in protection from asteroids

Published

Asteroids are not just wandering space rocks, but a potential threat
to Earth. But what if the Earth already has its own built-in defenses
against them? Recent research published on the preprint server arXiv puts forward an unusual theory: Earth’s gravitational forces may serve as its secret shield against asteroids.

Our
planet uses powerful gravitational interactions with other celestial
bodies to break apart asteroids that approach it. These tidal forces,
akin to those that explain Earth’s tides caused by the Moon, can be so
intense that objects undergo tidal disruption, causing them to be torn
apart.

Observations of fragments of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 after
its collision with Jupiter in 1994 provided the first confirmation of
this phenomenon. However, for decades astronomers have been looking for
evidence that Earth or other terrestrial planets could have a similar
effect on asteroids and comets.

Planetary scientist Mikael Granvik
from the Swedish University of Technology, Luleå, led the research that
came closer to solving the above phenomenon.

His
discovery is linked to the search for gravitationally disrupted
near-Earth asteroids (NEAS), and provides compelling evidence that our
planet’s gravitational forces are not just an abstract concept, but a
factor capable of breaking asteroids into small pieces.

Based on
modeling of asteroid trajectories, Grunwick and colleague Kevin Walsh of
the Southwest Research Institute found that collisions with rocky
planets can cause asteroids to lose a significant portion of their mass,
turning them into debris streams.

New data shows that small
asteroid fragments, while not posing a threat to life on the planet, may
nevertheless increase the likelihood of local collisions like those
that occurred in Tunguska and Chelyabinsk.

Granwick assures that
asteroids smaller than 1 km in diameter are not a critical threat, but
increase the likelihood of incidents. However, it is worth remembering
the additional risks that may arise due to the formation of new debris
clouds.
