  1. Nasa finds (could have found) evidence of 'life on Mars': Curiosity rover picks up methane 'burps' that could be coming from alien organisms Dec. 16, 2014 Andrew Griffin Mars Curiosity rover picks up 'burps' of methane — which could be evidence of life on the planet "Evidence of life on Mars could have been found by Nasa's Curiosity Rover. Mysterious spikes of methane that cannot easily be explained by geology or other theories have been found by one of the instruments on the robot, which landed on the planet in 2012. Scientists can’t be sure what is causing the spikes, but it is possible that it could be very small, bacteria-like living organisms. If the gas is coming from living, breathing microbes then it would mark one of the biggest discoveries in history. On Earth, 95% of methane comes from microbial organisms. Scientists have said that the rover now has to test and re-test the possibility of life, ahead of a manned mission in 2020 that would look for the source of the methane." "Previous satellite observations have detected unusual plumes of methane on the planet, but none as extraordinary as the sudden "venting" measured at Gale Crater, where evidence suggests water once flowed billions of years ago. The laboratory onboard the rover has been sniffing methane in the atmosphere a dozen times in the last 12 months. In late 2013 and early 2014, the amount of methane flared up, and then receded. Other possible explanations include the Sun's rays degrading organic material that was left behind by meteors, Nasa scientists said at the press conference announcing the news. But that explanation still relies on the original material being deposited, they said." snip
  2. This article might be of interest. During the Viking lander mission, a woman called Jackie claims to have seen 2 people, dressed in spacesuits walking towards the lander. She also said that the spacesuits looked protective, but were not like the ones our astronauts wore. There is a link to an audio file where Jackie talks about it. The article is short but there is also a second link to a youtube video where another man who worked for NASA is also making the same claim. This is important because the article appears in the Australian Edition of International Business Times, and unless I'm mistaken, I sense that these types of articles are purposefully being filtered into mainstream media, possibly with an aim to desensitise the general public. Most comments are negative, stupid, ignorant and recalcitrant - but that's the general population anyway, however there are some comments that are open minded.
  3. Martian Croc is a Crock But Celtic Cross Looks Credible Paul Seaburn October 23, 2014 "The Mars Curiosity and Opportunity rovers are sending back photographs of anomalies on the planet’s surface that may or may not be evidence of Martian life, alien visitors or just plain weird stuff. And they just keep coming. A photo from the Curiosity rover appears to show the head of a crocodile while one taken by Opportunity looks an awful lot like a Celtic cross. Lets view the crocodile first. British amateur astronomer Joe White analyzes NASA’s photo releases daily and he was the first to see the rock that looks like a crocodile in a picture sent back earlier this year. It was taken by the six-foot-high right hand side mast cam on the Curiosity Rover. Is it a statue of a real Martian croc that would be solid proof that the planet was once covered with enough water to keep reptiles happy? Not likely. Even Joe thinks it’s just an unusual rock." snip
  4. How would you like to take a one way trip to a desolate planet? Live in a controlled stationary bubble? Permanently? Sounds like your cup of tea? Well this is for you!
  5. I don't know about this one. All of this Mars stuff lately gives me a strange feeling. And if anyone understands the title to this article, please explain! What is meant by putting "a two-story building on Mars"? How can NASA put a two-story building on Mars? Its very own flying saucer. NASA's LDSD project aims to develop the capacity to land larger payloads on Mars, perhaps even humans. But first, NASA needs a way to decelerate capsules traveling at supersonic speeds. By Daniel B. Wood, Staff writer / April 10, 2014 NASA's Low Density Supersonic Decelerator (LDSD) mission scientists show their test vehicle to members of the media at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., on Wednesday.

  6. Not sure if this was psoted on chani already ... Images captured by Opportunity show the mysterious rock 'appeared' on an outcrop that had been empty just 12 Martian days ('Sols') earlier 20 January 2014 A mysterious 'jelly doughnut rock' which appeared in front of the Opportunity rover is “like nothing we’ve ever seen before”, according to Mars exploration scientists at Nasa. Experts said they were “completely confused” by both the origins and makeup of the object, which is currently being investigated by Opportunity’s various measuring instruments. Astronomers noticed the new rock had “appeared” without any explanation on an outcrop which had been empty just days earlier. The rover has been stuck photographing the same region of Mars for more than a month due to bad weather, with scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California monitoring the images it sends. Nasa issued a Mars status report entitled “encountering a surprise”, and lead Mars Exploration rover scientist Steve Squyres told a JPL event it seems the planet literally “keeps throwing new things at us”. He said the images, from 12 Martian days apart, were from no more than a couple of weeks ago. “We saw this rock just sitting here. It looks white around the edge in the middle and there’s a low spot in the centre that’s dark red – it looks like a jelly doughnut. “And it appeared, just plain appeared at that spot – and we haven’t ever driven over that spot.” Squyres said his team had two theories on how the rock got there – that there’s “a smoking hole in the ground somewhere nearby” and it was caused by a meteor, or that it was “somehow flicked out of the ground by a wheel” as the rover went by. “We had driven a metre or two away from here, and I think the idea that somehow we mysteriously flicked it with a wheel is the best explanation,” Squyres said. Yet the story got even stranger when Opportunity investigated further. Squyres explained: “We are as we speak situated with the rover’s instruments deployed making measurements of this rock. [snip]
  7. Prospective Martians apply for one-way trip to red planet Author: By Jennifer Juarez August 9, 2013 CNN) - More than 100,000 people are eager to make themselves at home on another planet. They've applied for a one-way trip to Mars, hoping to be chosen to spend the rest of their lives on uncharted territory, according to an organization planning the manned missions. The Mars One project wants to colonize the red planet, beginning in 2022. There are financial and practical questions about this venture that haven't been clarified. Will there be enough money? Will people really be able to survive on Mars? But these haven't stopped some 30,000 Americans from signing up. You can see some of the candidates on the project's website, but they're not the only ones who have applied, said Bas Lansdorp, Mars One CEO and co-founder.
