Physicist Says Mushroom Cloud Found on Mars Proves Aliens Died in Ancient Nuclear War
Mars, the closest planet to the Earth, is a barren wasteland.
The world has no atmosphere, and its surface is covered in dust and rock, but no traces of organic life.
The big question is whether the planet has always been this way, or whether at some point in the past, there really were living creatures on Mars.
One theory among Mars enthusiasts is the possibility that the Red Planet might once have sustained life forms, but that these creatures were destroyed in a nuclear war that ravaged the planet. As strange as it may sound, some prominent scientists, such as physicist Dr. John Brandenburg, say there's plenty of evidence on the Red Planet that proves alien life on Mars was wiped out by a nuclear war.
This theory has been bouncing around for a while, but a new video from YouTuber Disclose Screen claims to show evidence of the fallout from nuclear blasts, as well as, intriguingly, proof that alien life still exists on the planet.
According to Disclose Screen:
According to the YouTuber, pictures of Mars that are released by NASA are routinely edited or otherwise doctored to remove evidence of aliens.
His proof of this potentially ongoing nuclear war? Some blurry shapes from various NASA photos.
There's something inherently missing from Disclose Screen's logic on this front. In one breath, he accuses NASA of removing all trace of aliens from pictures of Mars that are released to the public, and in the next breath, he's arguing that proof of aliens can be seen in these doctored photos. One would hope that if NASA really was pulling off a big conspiracy, they wouldn't be lazy enough to leave evidence of aliens in half their photos.
The claims that Disclose Screen makes in his videos are baseless, and he's far from the only person to try this technique for generating attention. Many alien truthers claim to have found bizarre shapes and patterns in the rocks of Mars, but their findings can be dismissed as little more than the enthusiasm of people who are trying to find a conspiracy to get excited about. Picking familiar shapes out of rocks on Mars is essentially the same game as seeing faces in the clouds.
Disclose Screen's findings aren't even the most compelling of these kinds of claims; there are far more believable attempts to find patterns within Martian rocks from other conspiracy theorists.
Perhaps, though, there's something positive to take from all this. It's wonderful to live in a time in history where we can take such detailed photos of the surface of Mars that opportunistic conspiracy theorists can attempt to find hidden messages within these pictures. Our species is making phenomenal leaps forwards in terms of our ability to observe the known universe, and with that, comes a lot of fantastic new discoveries to be made.
This being the case, we can probably forgive the occasional alien truther for getting over-enthusiastic about an oddly shaped rock, when the rock in question is 34 million miles away.
