What does NASA hide from us? This is what many people are asking and who for various reasons believe that the US space agency is hiding secrets from the world.
This is the scope of the conspiracy theory that if you type the words “NASA” and “hidden” into any search engine, we will find millions of results. And most of these results are related to ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ life. Conspiracy theorists have long held NASA and governments actively and passively around the world trying to completely hide the fact that there is or has been ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ life in the universe, specifically on Mars.
His theory is supported by the fact that there are many images of the red planet that show strange objects that appear to belong to some A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ c̳i̳v̳i̳l̳i̳z̳a̳t̳i̳o̳n̳. While much of these claims are based solely on individual interpretations of NASA photographs or videos, scientists sometimes discover irregularities in the US space agency\’s data. In 2016, one such case came to light when astrophysicists refuted forty-year-old data collected on the surface of the red planet by NASA\’s Viking 1 lander. The paper claimed that the module did discover evidence of organic molecules in samples of Martian soil, but that the data was either misinterpreted or deliberately hidden.
Now, astrophysicists have gone further in a new study published in the Journal of Geophysical Research, which claims that the Viking spacecraft could have destroyed evidence of organic molecules, the building blocks of life, to burn in their gas chromatograph-spectrometry. mass (GC-MS), an instrument that heats/burns substances to determine their composition. Did NASA Destroy Test of E̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ Life on Mars?
This new study examines data collected by the Phoenix Mars Lander NASA spacecraft in 2008 and the Curiosity Rover in 2013. In their Mars soil analysis, both explorers discovered the presence of perchlorate salt compounds used in thrusters and Control static electricity in the packaging of foods. When heated to high temperatures, perchlorates are broken down into other compounds, one of which is chlorobenzene. It turns out that the 1976 Viking Lander I, the same one they accused of detecting organic compounds without NASA admitting it, detected the presence of chlorobenzene in their GC-MS data.
What does all this mean? In short, all we know for sure is that NASA probably had evidence of ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ life on Mars forty years ago, either I didn\’t realize it, or I deliberately hid it. At MEP we are convinced that this was the last one, as one possibility is that since the Viking landers cost more than 5 billion dollars, it would not have been positive to admit that one of NASA\’s technological references “incinerated” The best evidence about life on the red planet. Although I also hold on to the possibility that the US space agency would not want to admit a discovery that would change the history books and our perception of the universe.
Controversy in the scientific community
However, after astrophysicists publicly denounced NASA\’s “carelessness”, other scientists came to the space agency\’s defense. They say NASA has been falsely accused of destroying evidence of ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ life on Mars. Furthermore, they say that there is no evidence of the existence of beings from other worlds, so the space agency has not destroyed anything relevant. Perhaps the organic molecules could be the result of terrestrial contamination.
As we can see, controversy is served. Although most curious of all is that the “w̳a̳r̳” is no longer between conspiracy theorists and scientists, it is scientists against scientists. It seems that we have taken a step in the so-called “alternative news”, because more and more scientists who dare to denounce how NASA is certainly hiding important data about the existence of ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ life is intelligent or not.
And maybe conspirasionists aren\’t just crazy or narcissistic, as psychologists describe them. Whatever the case, this new NASA research data makes us ask the following question: could we already have evidence of ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ life hidden in some secret vault? Is NASA hiding information that could change the course of our history? Are we on the threshold of ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ disclosure?
