John Brandenburg has a new,
stunning theory for why we can't see life on Mars.
Brandenburg believes that ancient life on Mars was eradicated by
an alien nuclear attack. Brandenburg, a plasma physicist and expert
in propulsion technologies, believes that Earth will one day
experience a similar attack.
In his paper, titled "Evidence of a Massive Thermonuclear Explosion on Mars in the Past, The Cydonian Hypothesis and Fermi's Paradox," Brandenburg asserts that the interstellar community will meet Earth's young, noisy civilization with hostility in the future.
Brandenburg argues that it was for this
reason civilization on Mars was wiped out.
In his paper, Brandenburg outlines apparent evidence that nuclear explosions happened on Mars in two different sites of early life:
He says both sites were erased by
nuclear bombs launched by highly advanced aliens. He says the red
color of the surface of Mars proves that nuclear explosions
occurred on its surface.
The International Business Times, A.U. edition
reports that NASA's Mars Odyssey spacecraft was able to detect high
Xenon-129 in the Martian
atmosphere, similar to the amounts found following certain nuclear
incidents on Earth, including the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.
While some scientists agreed that
nuclear explosions did destroy life on Mars, they do not agree with
Brandenburg's assertion that they were launched by aliens.
Dr. David Beaty, a science manager at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory insists that a gradual and natural nuclear reaction is what eradicated life on Mars.
