A former NASA scientist has recently made the explosive claim that life was found on Mars in the 1970s, which the State Space Agency has vehemently denied. However, an entomologist at Ohio University has gone a step further, claiming to have discovered "insect and reptile-like beings" in a photo of the Red Planet, both living and dead.
The emeritus professor of Ohio University, William In recent years, when viewing a series of photographs publicly provided by various Mars rovers, including the Curiosity rover, a series of "insect-like" forms similar to bees have been discovered. as well as reptile-like forms "found by the university.
"There was and is life on Mars," said Romoser, who specializes in arbovirology and general / medical entomology. "The Martian insect-like fauna has an apparent diversity that has many features that resemble Terran insects and are interpreted as advanced groups ̵
ALIEN LIVE MAY BE FOUND AT MAR 1970, SAYS AN EX-NASA SCIENTIST.
Romoser explicitly mentioned the Curiosity Rover exploring the Gale Crater since he landed on Mars in August 2012, discoveries, including a surprising increase in methane levels, oxygen behavior, "in a way that scientists do not yet explain can ", a mysterious, unexplained white light and many others.
Earlier this month, NASA released a stunning black and white image on the Mars Exploration website that sheds new light on the planet's emptiness.
Fox News has asked NASA for comment.
Romoser, who made the statement at the Entomological Society of America annual meeting, said he was looking for signs of body symmetry, body segmentation, repetitive shape, bone remnants, and other clues that might be considered signs of life.
it was useful to facilitate the recognition of other less clear but still valid images of the same basic form, "added Romoser. "An exoskeleton and limbs are enough to identify themselves as arthropods."
NASA: OLD MARS OASIS COULD HAVE LIVED
He continued, "Three body regions, a single antenna pair, and six legs are traditionally sufficient to identify themselves as 'insects' on Earth should also be valid to identify an organism on Mars as insect-like, and on these bases, arctropod-like insect-like forms can be seen on the Mars rover photos. "
" In many images, clear flight behavior was evident. " Romoser's findings are that the "creatures" are loose bumblebees or carpenter bees, while others depict the "bees" who seemingly live in caves, while other images show "a fossilized creature resembling a snake."
The renowned entomologist admitted that the interpretation of the images might change in the future, but the amount of evidence he has uncovered so far is convincing.
The presence of higher metazoan organisms on Mars implies the presence of nu trient / energy sources and processes, food chains and networks, and water as elements functioning in a viable, albeit extreme, ecological environment sufficient to sustain life receive.
"The evidence of life on Mars presented here provides a strong foundation for many other important biological, social and political issues," added Romoser. "It's also a solid justification for further investigation."
NASA's upcoming Mars 2020 rover, due to land on February 18, 2021, will search for signs of fossil evidence of alien creatures while exploring the Jezero Crater.
