Alien ‘Artifacts’ Made By Civilizations From Mars or Venus Could Be Hidden On Earth, NASA Study Suggests

by Jasper Hamill                     December 26, 2018                     (metro.co.uk)

• Dozens of NASA space scientists teamed up to explore how our species could detect ‘technosignatures’, ie: the name for pieces of evidence which give away the presence of advanced alien civilizations – radio waves are detected coming from a distant star system, or Dyson Sphere ‘megastructure’ power stations surrounding a star in order to harvest its’ energy, for example.

A November 28, 2018 NASA report entitled “NASA and the Search for Technosignatures” suggests that the truth about extraterrestrials could be lurking right under our noses. In a new report, scientists suggest that our own planet may be hiding alien ‘artifacts’, some of which may even have been built by extinct civilizations who lived on Mars, Venus or even Earth.

• ‘Because the geological, paleontological, and archaeological records on Earth are so incomplete, it is even possible that the Earth itself hosts such (extraterrestrial) artifacts, although, again, this idea is often conflated with unscientific popular imaginings and science fiction stories about alien visitation, and so must be approached carefully,’ the NASA researchers wrote.

• The report continues, ‘If technosignatures were discovered in the solar system, it would be worth considering whether their origin might not be interstellar. Specifically, since the Earth is home to the only known species capable of interstellar communication and planetary travel (although both technologies remain in their early development), the Earth remains the only known planet fecund enough to promote technological life, and so it or an early, habitable Mars or Venus could even be the origin of such technology.’

• The NASA report noted that ‘Technosignatures in the solar system might come in the form of free-floating probes or structures—either passing through the solar system or in orbit around the Sun or other body—or in the form of structures or other signs of technologies on planetary surfaces.’

• So far, the only potential alien artifact we’ve seen has been ‘Oumuamua’, the first ‘interstellar visitor’ to be observed in our stellar neighborhood after traveling here in 2017 through deep space. Still, most scientists believe its origins are natural rather than artificial. Oumuamua changed direction as it passed the sun, which may have been caused by a natural process called outgassing – although there is a very slight chance this could have been the result of it being steered somehow.  (see previous ExoNews article on the Oumuamua visitor here)

 

You might think that humanity’s best chance of finding alien life involves peering deep into space and analysing faraway galaxies.

But a Nasa study has suggested the truth about extraterrestrials could be lurking right under our noses.

Dozens of space scientists have teamed up to explore how our species could detect ‘technosignatures’, the name for pieces of evidence which give away the presence of advanced alien civilisations.

Some of these tell-tale signs are obvious. For instance, if loads of radio waves are detected coming from a distant star system, then it could be a clue which shows it’s inhabited by intelligent extraterrestrial organisms.

We could also search for alien societies by looking for ‘megastructures’ called Dyson Spheres, which are theoretical power stations built surrounding a star to harvest its energy.

These would be easy to spot because they are likely to be gigantic and block out starlight whenever they pass in front of their sun.

Other technosignatures are harder to identify, such as evidence that a planet has been polluted by heavy industry.

In the new report, scientists also make the fascinating suggestion that our own planet may be hiding alien ‘artefacts’, some of which may even have been built by extinct civilisations which lived on Mars, Venus or even Earth.

‘Because the geological, paleontological, and archaeological records on Earth are so incomplete, it is even possible that the Earth itself hosts such artefacts, although, again, this idea is often conflated with unscientific popular imaginings and science fiction stories about alien visitation, and so must be approached carefully,’ researchers wrote.

On Mars Photographed Several UFOs

by Paradox                   December 15, 2018                    (micetimes.asia)

• The YouTube channel “The Hidden Underbelly 2.0” has posted an edited compilation of 83 still photos taken by NASA’s Curiosity Rover (pictured above) on the surface of Mars. In the Martian atmosphere you can see many black objects flying or floating in the sky. (see 4:11 minute video below)

• Of course, skeptics dismiss the black objects as debris in the sky or dirt on the camera lens.

[Editor’s Note]   First of all, this should put to rest the disinformation that Mars has no atmosphere. Insiders all confirm that Mars holds breathable oxygen in a blue sky atmosphere. Second, many insiders also say that indigenous to the planet are leathery, black, pterodactyl-type creatures that fly in the Martian sky. This could very well explain the photo array.

 

On the YouTube channel “The Hidden Underbelly 2.0” appeared in a movie with an interesting finding.

The edited video of the most beautiful panoramic views of the Martian surface, created based on 83 shots. The pictures made the device called “Curiosity”.

In the photos you can see dust borax that did not stop within two weeks. If you look in the “fog Martian”, we can see many mysterious objects. The above picture is highlighted rather large body, and not grains of sand, as might first seem.

Superficially the objects resemble each other, plus have almost identical dimensions. Unfortunately, the shooting resolution provides a detailed review seen a UFO. According to skeptics, in the heights just went up a large amount of debris. Either it was dirt on the camera.

ESA Shares Incredible Images of Martian Ice Crater

December 21, 2018                      (www.rt.com)

• The European Space Agency (ESA) has released a composite image showing a 82-kilometer-wide (50-mile wide), 2-kilometer-deep crater on Mars that is filled with water ice all year long.

• The ESA posted this online message along with the images (seen above and below) on December 20th: “A beautiful #winter wonderland… on #Mars! This ice-filled crater was imaged by our Mars Express spacecraft. Korolev crater is 82 kilometres across and found in the northern lowlands of Mars.” The northern lowlands of Mars is near the planet’s north pole which is known as Olympia Undae.

• The composite image was taken from five different “strips,” photographed by the Mars Express High Resolution Stereo Camera as it orbited Mars. This year marks the 15-year anniversary of the probe’s orbit insertion at the Red Planet.

• The 2,200 cubic kilometers of water ice could be important for the survival of future colonists, and may even enable them to return back home, as water could be split into hydrogen and oxygen for rocket fuel.

 

The European Space Agency has shared an incredible composite image showing a 50-mile wide crater on Mars that is filled with water ice all year long.

Budding future colonists hoping for a white Christmas on Mars will be somewhat disappointed as the ESA has confirmed that sitting in the Korolev crater is, in fact, a thick block of water ice, not snow. The enormous, 82-kilometer-wide, 2-kilometer-deep “ice trap” could still be good for ice skating though.

Even better, the 2,200 cubic kilometers of water ice – same as the volume of Canada’s Great Bear Lake – could be important for the survival of future colonists, and may even enable them to return back home, as water could be split into hydrogen and oxygen for rocket fuel.

For those of you asking – yes it is water ice.

The crater is found in the northern lowlands of Mars near the planet’s north pole which is known as Olympia Undae for its wavy, dune-filled terrain. The crater’s ice is protected by the topography and by a lair of cold air that shields it from the elements.

The composite image was taken by the Mars Express High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) and was actually formed from five different “strips,” with each strip gathered over a different orbit as the Mars Express probe flew overhead. The 2003-launched mission this month marks the 15-year anniversary of the probe’s orbit insertion at the Red Planet.

The icy crater is named after chief rocket engineer and spacecraft designer Sergey Korolev, known as the father of Soviet space technology and the head of iconic space exploration missions including the Sputnik, Vostok, and Voskhod programs. A lesser known fact is that Korolev dreamt about a flight to Mars for decades and was actually working on a rocket that would have brought a man to the Red Planet – and who knows where this unfinished project might have ended if it wasn’t for the Soviet visionary’s untimely death in 1966.
