Book Review: Alien Agenda by Jim Marrs

Jim Marrs has been putting out high quality work for some time.  Backing his hard work with extensive research of over 30 years experience, Marrs has set the research bar high with books like The Rise Of The Fourth Reich, Rule By Secrecy, Our Occulted History, and Popular Control.  This book is no different.

Alien Agenda – Investigating The Extraterrestrial Presence Among Us is definitely one of the most seminal and top-tier no-nonsense books on UFOs out there.

In a realm of research that that is littered with countless books with not much sourced material, and even more witness and whistleblower testimony, this book is definitely near the top tier.

As a book for someone just getting in, this book is really top notch.  The only book I would recommend more personally would be Richard Dolan’s UFOs For The 21st Century Mind: A Fresh Guide To An Ancient Mystery.

Taking a thorough and methodical approach which is signature in all of his books, Marrs brings the reader along the journey of all things UFOlogy.  Notably, this book covers a wide breadth of the information within the UFO field.  From issues with NASA, to The Moon, Ancient Astronauts, to Roswell, and even intricate subjects like Area 51, Crop Circles, and some of the most widely known UFO accounts, Marrs sought to leave no stone unturned.  The book really is a veritable encyclopedia of much of this elusive and thought-provoking phenomena.

If the book only covered those above topics, that would still make it a great book, knowing reliance on sourced material Marrs employs.  But there’s more.  Marrs also covers abstruse subjects such as abductions & missing time, the CIA, MJ-12, cattle mutilations, remote viewing, and even takes a metaphysical gander into ‘the phenomenon’ that’s quite unique.  This book really employs a wide range.   Marrs even ventures into the role of big finance in this abstruse subject.

Another salient point is that this book is footnoted to the hilt!  That ALONE takes this to a whole different level, which is rarely achieved in UFOlogy except only by the best researchers.  That is one reason why my respect of Jim Marrs has only grown overtime, because he doesn’t just connect dots that people can’t verify themselves.

For everything it offers, this book offers a lot of value.  Anyone really interested in the subject would be doing themselves a great disservice by overlooking it.  This book is a must have.

NASA’s Maven Probe Diverted From Collision With Martian Moon…

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
March 14, 2017

Mr. M.B. sent this article, and I found it curious, to say the least, given all the attention that the little Martian moon Phobos generated a few years ago. Phobos is one of two Martian satellites, the other being Deimos, the pair being the Greek names for “Fear” and “Trembling,” respectively. The attention that Phobos generated years ago was due to the photographs of the European Space Agency (ESA) of the object, which included rectilinear features on the surface, straight lines of craters, and, from the ESA’s radar tomography of the object, two apparently large hollow cavities within it, which were, curiously enough, outgassing. The features were so curious that Russia attempted to launch a special probe, Phobos Grunt, which would land on the object and conduct further tests.

Surprisingly (or, perhaps, not so surprisingly) the Russian probe got no further than Earth orbit, and then malfunctioned. If you’ll recall, the malfunction itself summoned its own speculations at the time, including statements from Russian generals that in fact the probe had malfunctioned due to corrupted computer chips, and “strong radar interference” during its launch. The word “sabotage” was bandied about.  It was not the first time Russia (and other nations) have experienced the strange failure of a Martian probe, for one Russian probe, Phobos II, as it approached Mars, snapped a photograph of… well… of a “something” about 16 km in length, appearing to be a long cylinder of clearly artificial origin. Then, the probe went “silent.” The Russians, so alarmed, allegedly shared the Top Secret photograph with the Americans, and that at the height of the Cold War.

To be sure, the high strangeness of the little Martian moon does not stop there. In my book Covert Wars and the Clash of Civilizations (pp. 27-62), I pointed out a number of other curious things about the little Martian moon. For starters, it was not discovered until 1877 by the American astronomer Asaph Hall. The problem was, why did it take so long to discover it? The telescopic technology of the 18th century was adequate to the task, and indeed, the satirist Jonathan Swift stated, fully a century before their discovery, than Mars had two satellites, and he even gave their orbital periods with amazing accuracy, all of which implied a secret discovery, or, as one 20th century Russian astronomer (I.S. Shklovskii) put it, since they weren’t discovered until long after the telescopic technology existed to do so, this meant that they weren’t there. Implication: someone parked them there at a later period, until Asaph Hall discovered them.

So, in that context, consider the article Mr. M.B. shared with me:

NASA probe narrowly avoids collision with Martian moon Phobos

https://www.extremetech.com/extreme/245316-nasa-probe-executes-maneuver-avoid-collision-martian-moon-phobos/embed#?secret=MSDjc4QlPQ

Clearly, in the picture, if one looks carefully, one can see the rectilinearity of surface features, a faint line of craters, and so on. What intrigues me is the story itself, for according to it, one is left with the impression that NASA had to made some “last minute corrections” to the orbit of its MAVEN probe, lest Phobos and MAVEN collide, as the latter was “too close” to the little moon.

Uh huh…

I’m not buying it for a moment. I suspect, rather, that the probe was deliberately piloted to be as close as possible to the Martian satellite to take as many pictures as possible, and that the collision story is just that, a story designed to deflect attention from what may very well have been a quiet “reconnaissance” mission. Given the high strangeness surrounding the Martian satellite, one may perhaps be forgiven for a bit of really high octane speculation: perhaps NASA’s orbital insertion of the MAVEN probe was originally done correctly, and that the course correction was needed because either its orbit had somehow been altered, or Phobos’ was (the latter, of course, being quite improbable, for it would surely be noticed and reported by astronomers). Given the strange picture from Russia’s Phobos II probe of the strange cylindrical object, anything’s possible.

Here’s One For The 3-D Printing Scrapbook

Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
March 11, 2017

It has been a while since I’ve updated the 3d-printing scrapbook on this site, but not for want of stories about it. In fact, as we will discover this week, there is big news on this front, beginning with today’s story, which several readers here noticed and shared. Now, you may be wondering why I’ve put this story under the category of the “transhumanist scrapbook,” but we’ll get to that in a moment, for it has to do with today’s high octane speculation. 3-d printed structures have already been built in China, so what’s the fuss here? Here’s one version of this story that appeared at Zero Hedge:

This House Was 3D-Printed In Under 24 Hours At A Cost Of Just $10,000

OK… the “house” is not exactly a nice looking modern American middle class brick home with faux Tudor turrets and windows, but then again, those homes now cost as much as three-or-four modern overpriced automobiles that can be remote controlled and sent into trees if you or your family step out of line.   Ahhh… progress!

This cozy little place was only a little over $10,000, and that means, considerably less money than a new car, and unlike other structures made from “additive manufacturing,” this one was not printed elsewhere and assembled on the spot, but printed right on the spot.  With a little extra money, I’m sure a basement could have been dug out and a basement printed as well for those requiring shelter during tornado season in Russia (remember,  they get them too).

But just allow your mind to wander a bit, and speculate on all the implications: suppose they perfect all this and can print your modern American middle class brick home with faux Tudor turrets and windows… at a fraction of the cost (that is to say, for the price of just one – not several – of the modern over-priced automobiles that can be remote controlled and sent into trees if you or your family step out of line). What’s brought down the cost? Once again, it’s labor productivity that has been drastically reduced.  Now let your imagination really go: imagine printing roads with the process. Indeed, why have humans driving the equipment that digs the roadbeds at all? This can be done with automatically controlled vehicles. Another robot printer can print the frames for the concrete pouring, and another can then pour the concrete. Few, or no, humans needed. Cost of making or even repairing and maintaining the road? Drastically reduced. Why? Labor productivity has once again declined, dramatically.

Speculate further: if it is simple houses today, why not high-rises? As the article states, apartment buildings have already been constructed in China using parts printed by 3-d printing. But now imagine doing it on the spot – as with this little house – and today’s erection cranes give way to tomorrow’s 3-d printing modules, and high rises could conceivably go up not in a matter of weeks, but possibly just days. And again, at a fraction of the cost. Why? Once again, because of the decline of the costs of labor productivity.

And of course, there is the application of the same technology for space purposes; already NASA and other space agencies are looking at the process not only for printing spare parts in space for simple repairs, but looking much farther ahead to the possibilities of using the process to construct permanent human habitation and working spaces off-world. And the black projects world has a wonderful new technology to play with in their underground bases and tunnels, a boon not only to the elimination of labor productivity and maintenance costs, but, as human labor production requirements fall, so do the security risks as fewer people are “in the know.” As I’ve stated before, I strongly suspect that additive manufacturing comes out of the black world, since the process has been around for a long time(decades, if one really digs into it), and it probably much more advanced in that black projects world than is evident in the public one. (And here’s a thought to ponder, why in the past few years has 3-d printing been being “driven” into the public consciousness by stories such as these?)

So why belabor all of this? Because again traditional economic models of analysis will have to be drastically revised. Typically, housing is one area that has been looked at as an indicator of the economy’s health and the employment market. When houses are built, people are spending, and people are employed building them. But with the progress and advances in the additive manufacturing process and the low cost of building a house manufactured on the spot, more people who cannot now build or afford a home will be able to do so. Thus, a housing market can expand, without the hitherto typical expansion of employment. Hence, for those making such models and emphasizing the need to shift back to a production economy, a problem is posed: how does one increase production when labor productivity is falling due to technological progress? What does one do with the decrease of jobs once filled by humans?

As I’ve argued before, there must be a dramatic increase in human productivity.

In Space, Telomeres Lengthen…

Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
February 8, 2017

You know me; I love to engage in high octane speculation, and when Mr. M.B. shared this article with me, I knew I had to talk about it, because the implications, if the results are replicated, could be quite significant to the current talk about extended human presence in space. NASA, it seems, has been interested in how prolonged presence in space affects the human genome, if at all. So it turned to two twins, Mark and Scott Kelly, to study such effects, particularly on Scott Kelly, who spent a year in space at the international space station.

This, as they say, is where it gets “very interesting.” Here’s the article:

First Genetic Results from Scott Kelly’s Year in Space reveal DNA mysteries

So what caught my eye? As you might have guessed from the title of today’s blog, it’s telomeres:

As identical twins, the brothers are genetically very similar. However, researchers found that while he was in orbit, Scott’s telomeres — the caps on the ends of chromosomes — grew longer than his twin brother’s. Though Scott’s telomeres returned to their pre-flight lengths shortly after he returned to Earth, these results were totally unexpected, since telomeres naturally shrink over the course of one’s life, and the stresses of spaceflight are supposed to accelerate this. At least that was the idea.

“That is exactly the opposite of what we thought,” Susan Bailey, a radiation biologist at Colorado State University, toldNature. (Emphases added)

What’s interesting here, and what fuels my high octane speculation of the day, is that there is a school of thought that connects the shrinkage of human telomeres to human aging, i.e., that shrinking telomeres are contributory causes (among others) of human aging. Needless to say, it’s a debatable proposition; shrinking telomeres could equally be an effect of aging rather than one of its contributory causes, but in any case, the discussion is there. And before I venture further out on to the twig of high octane speculation where the weight of speculation clearly exceeds the evidence adduced for it, it is also worth mentioning another profound caveat: a study of one man is hardly proof of a general phenomenon. If the phenomenon is repeated in others under the same or similar conditions, then it’s not an accident.

But assuming, for the moment, that (1) it is a phenomenon and not an accident, and (2) that the shortening of telomeres is a causative factor in human aging, then the high octane speculative implications are clear: extended stay in space in low or zero gravity might actually contribute to a strengthening and lengthening of the telomeres and hence to human longevity. To be sure, the article points out that telomere lengthening can contribute to the development of pathologies, but under the theory that shortening is a causative factor to aging and human health issues – as the article also implies with these statements, “John Charles, chief scientist at NASA’s Human Research Program, said scientists are interested in telomere length during space travel because their erosion could cause health defects during long-term missions. It is critical to understand these potential health risks before sending astronauts on long voyages, such as one to Mars,” (Emphases added) – then their lengthening in space could actually imply that human life extension is enhanced… in space.

Now, in case you think we’ve crawled out to the end of the twig, we haven’t. We’re still on the thin branch part, but not quite out on the end of the twig. But now we’re going to go there. Under conventional evolutionary theory, beneficial mutations and adaptations…

Metallic Hydrogen, Time Crystals & Hyper-Dimensional Speculation

Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
January 31, 2017

First off, a caveat: by hyper-dimensional speculation I mean something far beyond our usual “high octane” speculation, and perhaps bordering on “sheer fantasy”, but falling just short of it. In any case, this has been one of those weeks where I truly do wish I had a staff that could blog about all the stories I wanted to blog about, because there are so many. Alas, I am only one person, and have to make my selections, but these two stories were at the very top of my list, not only for what they say, but also for their implications, and the context in which they occurred.

Let’s look at the first article that began to flood my email in box about a new type of matter which has just been confirmed: time crystals:

Scientists have confirmed a brand new form of matter: time crystals

So, in addition to the usual states of matter – solid, liquid, gas, plasma – we may now add a fifth, the time crystal, or to be more precise: non-equilibrium matter, a form of matter which in its ground state, oscillates, in other words, a regular lattice structure repeated not only in space such as an ordinary crystal like carborundum or diamond, but also in time as well, and this structure apparently exists without the consumption of energy to create motion:

First predicted by Nobel-Prize winning theoretical physicist Frank Wilczek back in 2012, time crystals are structures that appear to have movement even at their lowest energy state, known as a ground state.

Usually when a material is in ground state, also known as the zero-point energy of a system, it means movement should theoretically be impossible, because that would require it to expend energy.

But Wilczek predicted that this might not actually be the case for time crystals.

Normal crystals have an atomic structure that repeats in space – just like the carbon lattice of a diamond. But, just like a ruby or a diamond, they’re motionless because they’re in equilibrium in their ground state.

But time crystals have a structure that repeats in time, not just in space. And it keep oscillating in its ground state.

Imagine it like jelly – when you tap it, it repeatedly jiggles. The same thing happens in time crystals, but the big difference here is that the motion occurs without any energy.

A time crystal is like constantly oscillating jelly in its natural, ground state, and that’s what makes it a whole new form of matter – non-equilibrium matter. It’s incapable of sitting still.

To put it country simple, a non-equilibrium ground state of matter – a time crystal – is a kind of exotic matter, the quest for which we’ve been hearing about in recent years, though usually in conjunction with the so called “dark matter.”

The quest was initiated by a paper by Norman Yao which demonstrated their theoretical existence and provided a map by which to actually create them:

Yao and his team have now come up with a detailed blueprint that describes exactly how to make and measure the properties of a time crystal, and even predict what the various phases surrounding the time crystals should be – which means they’ve mapped out the equivalent of the solid, liquid, and gas phases for the new form of matter.

Published in Physical Review Letters, Yao calls the paper “the bridge between the theoretical idea and the experimental implementation”.

The technique is simplicity itself, and, let it be noted, relies in some part on the idea of entanglement, with all its allusions to non-locality:

The University of Maryland’s time crystals were created by taking a conga line of 10 ytterbium ions, all with entangled electron spins.

The key to turning that set-up into a time crystal was to keep the ions out of equilibrium, and to do that the researchers alternately hit them with two lasers. One laser created a magnetic field and the second laser partially flipped the spins of the atoms.

Because the spins of all the atoms were entangled, the atoms settled into a stable, repetitive pattern of spin flipping that defines a crystal.

That was normal enough, but to become a time crystal, the system had to break time symmetry. And observing the ytterbium atom conga line, the researchers noticed it was doing something odd.

The two lasers that were periodically nudging the ytterbium atoms were producing a repetition in the system at twice the period of the nudges, something that couldn’t occur in a normal system.

“Wouldn’t it be super weird if you jiggled the Jell-O and found that somehow it responded at a different period?” said Yao.

“But that is the essence of the time crystal. You have some periodic driver that has a period ‘T’, but the system somehow synchronises so that you observe the system oscillating with a period that is larger than ‘T’.”

Let that settle in for a moment: one inputs a periodicity of T, and out pops Tn, where Tn>T. If one has really been paying attention to various “odd details” I’ve chronicled in my books, one can imagine that the late Dr. Nikolai Kozyrev might be elated that this is a demonstration of his idea of “time as a force” and with a “density”, a density that could be quantified by this time-lattice structure or periodicity. One might also suspect that a certain Dr. Ronald Richter would also be elated that this outlines ideas he was getting at in the 1950s(see my The Philosophers’ Stone and The Nazi International respectively). Tuck all this in the back of your mind as you now contemplate that they’ve also not only successfully created these time crystals at Harvard, but that Harvard has also successfully synthesized metallic hydrogen, i.e., hydrogen not as a gas, but a metal:

It’s real: Metallic hydrogen has been created for the first time

I’ll leave it to the reader to read the whole article, but I want to point out this paragraph:

Most importantly, physicists think that metallic hydrogen could be a room-temperature superconductor, which would mean the material could conduct electricity with zero resistance – and without having to be cooled to crazy temperatures first.

We know of many superconducting materials already – we use them to create the powerful magnetic fields in our MRI machines and in maglev trains – but they’re only capable of achieving superconductivity at temperatures below –269 degrees Celsius (–452.2 degrees Fahrenheit), which makes them expensive and non-practical for many purposes.

If scientists could achieve that same superconductivity at room temperature, it would be huge, because it means we could create things like power lines that don’t lose any electricity between the power plant and your home. Right now, the grid loses as much as 15 percent of its energy as heat, due to resistance.

The material could also be the most powerful rocket propellant ever discovered, with incredible energy stored up in its bonds capable of blasting us to distant worlds.

Note, that by synthesizing metallic hydrogen for the first time ever, the first step in that technology tree outlined in the above quotation has been taken. Which brings us to the fourth line of that outline: “The material could also be the most powerful rocket propellant ever discovered, with incredible energy stored up in its bonds capable of blasting us to distant worlds.” Metallic hydrogen in its isotopic forms – deuterium and tritium – if those could be synthesized, could then perhaps be used as fusion fuel for such propulsion systems “blasting us to distant worlds,” a kind of “thermonuclear rocket.”

But really, why bother with all that? Recall the experiments of Evgenny Podkletnov with circular superconductors that appeared to take on contrabaric (antigravity) properties. Now, instead of having to supercool those superconductors, simply make them of metallic hydrogen, in big enough rings, and oh, say, stack two of them upon the same axis of rotation, and counter-rotate those superconducting currents (which would have to be appropriately massive), and what do you get?

Well, before you think this rings a bell (and it does to some degree), recall NASA’s proof of concept experiments in space warp technologies, being led by Dr. Harold “Sonny” White, who, you’ll recall, reworked the metric of Miguel Alcubierre’s paper on space warps to a smaller mass-energy conversion, and you have the NASA drawings of Dr. White’s warp drive space ships with their clearly evident rings or “engines” that produce the warp. (See? I told you this would be hyper-dimensional speculation just on the fringe of fantasy.)

While all this is hyper-dimensional-speculation-just-this-side-of-fantasy, I have to wonder if it really is that, for what it appears we’re being shown are the first steps in a technology tree that could lead from fantasy to reality, and in that respect, I cannot help but recall both DARPA’s stated goal for the USA to become “warp capable” in a mere century, and to recall that what we’re shown usually lags behind – often far behind – what we’re not being shown. And I can’t help recall in the context of all this hyper-dimensional-speculation-just-this-side-of-fantasy, the alleged statements of Ben Rich, that “we” had found “an error in the equations” (shades of Dr. White reworking Alcubierre’s equations), and that we now could “take ET home.” I cannot also help but recall President Trump’s strange connection to Nikola Tesla via his MIT physicist uncle, Dr. John Trump, and the President’s statements on making space a national priority.

I don’t know about you, but I suspect something is definitely “up”…

Things That Make You Go “Hmmmm…”: NASA And That Ten…

space2

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
January 26, 2017

So many people sent me versions of this story that it is definitely one of those things that’s been “in the aether” this past week. And it really does take me back to elementary school, and learning my arithmetical “illions”, you know: million, billion, trillion, quadrillion, quintillion, sextillion, and so on. The idea of thinking in terms of amounts of money when connected to all those “illions” however, is something that they avoided (except in Congress when they’re spending everyone else’s money). But speaking of money, and all those “illions,” there may be a story behind this story, but that’s our high octane speculation of the day.

Here’s the story itself, in the UK’s Daily Mail tabloid financial apocalypse version:

Nasa plans to explore a $10,000 quadrillion asteroid that could cause the world’s economy to COLLAPSE

What concerns us here are these paragraphs(and by the way, lamestream media, didn’t your teachers teach you that normally paragraphs should be about three sentences in length?):

Psyche is one of the most mysterious objects in our solar system, and scientists could soon be getting a close-up view thanks to a newly confirmed Nasa mission.

If the asteroid could be transported back to Earth, the iron alone would be worth $10,000 quadrillion (£8,072 quadrillion).

Dr Elkins-Tanton has calculated that the iron in 16 Psyche alone, would be worth $10,000 quadrillion (£8,072 quadrillion).

Assuming the market for asteroid materials is on Earth, this could cause the value of precious metals to plummet, completely devaluing all holdings including those of Governments, and all companies involved in mining, distributing and trading such commodities.

Ultimately, it could lead to the collapse of the entire economy.

$10,000 quadrillion dollars. That’s  $10,000,000,000,000,000,000.00 for those of you writing the check.

Needless to say this has my high octane speculative gears turning in overtime, not the least because what sort of economic and fiscal models exist as precedents for such an influx of commodities from asteroid mining. We’ve certainly seen a spate of articles in previous years about mining celestial bodies, and a number of private space companies have begun on this premise, and the US Congress and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg have passed laws stating that nations and corporations can own what they recover on celestial bodies. Thus, like it or not, sooner or later, celestial mining is coming. The question is, what effect will it have? We have no precedent in human history for such a sudden massive injection of commodities into the global economy. The closest example, perhaps, is the Spanish conquest of central and South America, and the sudden and massive injection of gold and silver bullion into the Spanish, and ultimately the European, economy.  And it was a harsh lesson: the sudden influx of financial wealth devastated Spanish production wealth, as inflation and high prices drove manufacturing out of Spain and into the Spanish Netherlands: the wealth remained concentrated at the top, and with the flight of production, the middle class collapsed. But even then, Spain was a more or less closed economic system. Would the same thing happen to the corporation or nation that accessed such wealth on celestial bodies? Or would it suddenly strike the entire global economy? And what would happen?

We really don’t know. And I am moreover intrigued to notice that with all the space mining talk, there haven’t been that many acknowledgements in the popular press of any studies that have addressed this issue.

But that’s not really even what’s at the center of my high octane speculative cogitations today. What’s really at the center of them is yet another of those “unusual coincidences” that one notices when one connects discrete and apparently completely unrelated dots. In this case, the dots in our pointillistic picture are the quadrillions of dollars worth of derivatives sloshing around on bank ledgers in our “system” of finance, the enormous amount of cash that is also sloshing around in the system as a result of central bank quantitative easing, and, of course, all that “stuff” out there in space just waiting for us to go and get. It has always struck me as extremely odd that while we were watching the financial meltdown of 2007-2008, the bailout hearings, and the massive derivatives fraud (again, in the quadrillions of dollars), that this same time period saw the beginning of all those articles on space mining, asteroid mining, and so on. It was as if all those people who were asking “if there’s seventeen quadrillion dollars of derivatives out there, which is several times the entire GDP of planet Earth, how are we possibly going to pay for it?” In other words, people were noticing the books simply didn’t balance at all.

Well, I’ve been maintaining for a long time the possibility that space was long ago secretly “collaterallized”, and that all that paper liquidity might not, in fact, be mere paper liquidity at all, but actually “backed” by something, like, the asteroid belt. In that admittedly high octane speculative financial universe (pun intended: think the South Sea Bubble here, only replace the Caribbean with outer space), the books might balance after all. One loan asteroid can balance out all those derivatives, and then some.

So I noticed, with some interest, not only the Goldman Sachs influx into the new Trump administration, but also noted he made space a priority in his inauguration address.

I don’t know about you, but all these things make me go “Hmmmm…”

7 Unexplainable Discoveries’ That Have Been Made On Mars


Source: Ancient-Code.com
January 24, 2017

We can all probably agree that Mars is one of the most fascinating planets –besides Earth– in our solar system. We have learned so much about the red planet that we changed our opinion about everything we previously thought about Mars. Researchers finally know that Mars wasn’t always a desolate and inhospitable place. In fact, millions of years ago, the red planet may have been eerily similar to Earth.

In recent years, scientists have found out that Mars has liquid water flowing on its surface, a discovery that drastically changed everything we ever knew about Mars. The fact that NASA knows there is water on Mars means that they can pick out the best places to search for primitive life. If there is water, then perhaps there might be life on Mars.

FB_IMG_1438518354106

But not only did we find out that Mars has liquid water, NASA scientists finally proved that the red planet had an atmosphere eerily similar of that of Earth in the distant past, which means that just maybe, in the distant past, Mars could have supported life, when the red planet was similar to Earth with oceans, rivers, and lakes.

But not only have scientists made important discoveries on Mars this year, many Ufologists around the world identified strange structures in NASA’s images of the Red Planet. While some of these ‘structures’ are nothing more than the result of pareidolia playing tricks on our mind, some of these ‘objects’ cannot be rationally explained, and thus has led many to believe there is a possibility that in the distant past, Mars was inhabited by an ancient civilization. Here we bring you some of the most mysterious findings that according to Ufologists point to the existence of an ancient Martian civilization in the distant past.

The first finding that we find particularly interesting is the alleged “Dome” on Mars

According to people around the globe, this could be one of the most incredible images ever taken on the surface of the red planet. Look closely at the image and what’s the first thing you think of? Doesn’t that thing in the image look like a dome on Mars? The image, taken by the rover’s panoramic camera can be viewed on the website of NASA (Sol 4073). In the mysterious image, you can clearly see a semi-sphere protruding the upper part, of the hill. The dome-like object seems to be inconsistent with the surrounding terrain and incredibly stands out in the image taken by the Opportunity rover.

Mysterious statue on found on Mars?

While many of the findings on Mars can be dismissed quite easily, there are some findings that defy every logical explanation. This is the case of the image we can see in this article, an image that apparently defies all explications and looks like an Ancient Sumerian Statue often seen in Ancient Mesopotamia on Earth. According to UFO hunters, what appears to be a head of a mysterious statue has been seen in one of the images captured by the Curiosity rover currently exploring the red planet. In the mysterious image, Ufologists believe we can clearly make out the face of the statue, two eyes, a nose, a mouth and the typical cone-shaped beard we see in nearly all Ancient Sumerian Statues on our planet. From seeing Domes on Mars to a statue and what appear to be entire structures buried under the surface of the red planet, we have seen countless mysterious images from our neighboring planet that defy explanation.

While media around the world has a very hard time considering the possibility that some of these images are actually a bit more mysterious than what everyone wants to accept, Ufologists continue looking through thousands of images from Mars, suggesting that some of them are clear evidence that life on Mars existed in the past. Not only do these images show that Mars was inhabited, civilizations developed on the planet and we are seeing evidence of their existence today thanks to the numerous images NASA’s rovers are sending back to Earth, claim Ufologists. While many people believe that these images could in fact have belonged to artificial structures on Mars, skeptics remain confident that what we are seeing here is nothing more than Pareidolia and weird looking geological formations. What do you think?

Meet the Martian ‘Stonehenge’

A Stonehenge on Mars?

Meet ‘Marshenge’, a mysterious rock formation that has been spotted on the surface of the red planet. The mysterious formation rests on a mound that rises from the ground and clearly seems to be surrounded by a ditch. I think we can agree that it is very unlikely that what we are seeing here is the result of Pareidolia. But is it possible that we are looking at an ancient monument on Mars? This mysterious rock formation clearly resembles the well-known Stonehenge in Britain and is very unlikely to be the result of Mars’ Mother Nature. The mysterious rock formation on Mars is unique in the area it was photographed, and as you will see in the original image, there is nothing nearby that resembles in any way the mysterious rocks formed in a circle.

‘Another’ statue on Mars?

Are we looking at a statue on the surface of Mars? Or is it just another rock and Pareidolia is kicking in?

While many people would disagree and say this is just another example of Pareidolia kicking in and making us see things that are not there, many others believe that Mars did in fact sustain life in the distant past and NASA’s rovers are finding evidence of that today. To check out the raw image provided by NASA, please follow this link and download the High-resolution TIFF file where you can find the object in question.

The image in question is extremely interesting and must be artificial in nature according to UFO hunters and everyone else hoping to find traces of life on Mars. In the panoramic view that image PIA 17931 offers, we should be able to see, in the lower right corner an artifact that eerily resembles a statue. According to UFO enthusiasts, this “statue” even has eyes, a nose, and mouth, and it is impossible to be the result of mother nature on Mars.

Ultimate evidence of life on Mars: Did Curiosity snap an image of a mysterious “creature” on Mars?

NASA’s Curiosity rover has snapped another incredible image of Mars that has led to a lot of debate whether there is life or not on the red planet. Many people believe that even though the surface conditions of Mars are far too harsh to sustain life, there is life beneath the Martian surface, and this new image of NASA’s curiosity rover has awaken the debate among researchers, Ufologists, and media whether Mars has life. The “peculiar” image seems to show “something” hanging onto the cliffs on the red planet, at least that’s how it looks, doesn’t it? Can’t see the object in question? Look carefully to the center-right part of the image, there, you will notice a strange object that clearly stands out from the rest of the surrounding landscape. There are rocks on Mars, there are rocks that might look a bit strange, and then you have objects like the one in this image. Something that is completely out of place and doesn’t seem to be a rock. The object in question seems to have ten weirdly shaped “lines” or “tentacles” coming from the center of the oval-shaped “structure?”

A Pyramid on Mars?

NASA’s curiosity rover has photographed one of the most interesting images of the surface of Mars ever since it touched down on the red planet in 2012. Curiosity was launched from Cape Canaveral on November 26, 2011, at 10:02 EST aboard the MSL spacecraft and landed on Aeolis Palus in Gale Crater on Mars on August 6, 2012.

You can check out the RAW image of the pyramid here.

Even though many people suggest that this is just another coincidental rock formation of the red planet, others believe that the perfect geometry of the structure suggests it is an artificially created construction and is not in any way Pareidolia or tricks of light and shadow. The “perfect” symmetry of the structure is outstanding and the “pyramid” stands out from the rest of the Martian rocks. The angles and lines of the pyramid are believed to be a telltale sign that differentiates a natural formation from a manmade one.


While some of these images are probably just nothing more than tricks of lights and shadows, some of them are certainly interesting and are worth investigating further.
