Barry DiGregorio , a scientific professor at the Center for Astrobiology at the University of Buckingham, claimed that NASA is hiding fossil traces of extraterrestrial activity on Mars.
DiGregorio plans to release a “bomb report” that will reveal, once and for all, how NASA is aware of this discovery and how the US Space Agency chose to keep the truth hidden from the public.
Fossils Hidden by NASA
According to the researcher , who has already been dubbed a “controversial scientist” by several new media outlets, NASA may be ignoring the discovery due to its plans for a manned mission to Mars in the 2030s.
Furthermore, the space agency claims that the supposed fossils that DiGregorio claims are extraterrestrial evidence are actually rock crystals that are still being investigated.
DiGregorio specializes in studies of microscopic life found on Earth. The expert argues how some of the images transmitted by the Curiosity rover show clear evidence of Ordovician fossils found on Earth.
“These fossils appear as living things that go on with their lives , leaving footprints rather than the remains of the creatures themselves.”
Thus, DiGregorio believes that the fossils on Mars represent evidence of soft-bodied creatures that existed somewhere on the Martian surface.
During an interview with the Daily Express, he stated:
“If there are no fossils, what other geological explanations will NASA come up with?
NASA turned its back on trying to get the data on this. The order came from headquarters for them to move the rover to the next point.
They didn’t think it was important enough to look at, I found it very strange, despite the fact that Gale Crater has likely been home to a number of lakes over billions of years. We are talking about something that could have been equivalent to the Ordovician period on Earth.”
On the other hand, the space agency claims that what the professor found are probably crystals.
However, DiGregorio defends himself, stating that such an explanation makes no sense; the crystals do not branch or twist . He guarantees that it could be something similar to Earth’s Ordovician period , which occurred 485 or 444 million years ago.
Why did NASA order the Curiosity rover to continue on its way without studying the fossils? Nobody knows. However, despite the criticism received, DiGregorio is not the only one who believes that life existed on Mars.
Scientist John Brandenburg is another expert who claimed that Mars was home to extraterrestrial life. However, Brandenburg believed that extraterrestrial life on Mars was a complex organism rather than a simple one.
It’s not the first time NASA has been accused of withholding or hiding information from the masses. However, the fact that he is a recognized professor at one of the best universities in the world makes it all the more worrying.
