NASA Knew There Is Alien Life On Mars Since 1970, Says Former NASA Engineer

Gilbert Levin, a former NASA engineer who worked on the Viking missions, claims in an essay published in Scientific American on Tuesday (15) that the agency has known there is life on Mars since the 1970s.

Levin discloses in the essay that the two Viking ships, which landed in quite different regions on Mars, undertook a series of experiments to see whether there was life there. And one of these tests, which was based on scientist Louis Pasteur’s work to show the existence of germs, yielded a positive result for the presence of bacteria.

The outcome would have been validated by the Viking mission’s other ship, which repeated the results by doing the identical test almost 6,500 kilometers away from where the first ship landed.

The whole crew managed four tests that were positive for the presence of life on Mars, all with data curves that suggested the existence of microbial respiration on Mars, according to Levin, who claims to have spent the previous 43 years researching the mission’s results. Levin believed that the presence of microscopic life had been discovered on Mars since the results were remarkably similar to those observed when analyzing the presence of bacteria in terrestrial soil.

In the piece, he questions why, if the presence of life on Mars had already been established, the US government chose to keep this information hidden for decades.

However, this is not the case in reality. The results of experiments done by Vikings on the soil of Mars in the 1970s were not kept secret, and various experts have studied them over the previous four decades, but there is no consensus on whether they genuinely show the possibility of life on Earth. This is because detractors of the statement claim that the tests are non-specific, with findings that are inconsistent between studies and so inconclusive.

Levin even agrees with these comments, and it is here that the engineer expresses his greatest concern: the fact that the Viking missions’ discoveries were not backed up by further studies that could confirm the mission’s findings. And this casts doubt on NASA’s current plans, as the agency would be willing to send astronauts to a planet where no one knows whether or not germs exist, putting astronauts in danger. If there is microscopic life on Mars, it will take a lot of effort not only to avoid exposing them to possible microorganisms on the planet, but also to ensure that they do not bring any of these microorganisms back to Earth.

As a result, Levin concludes that, before sending astronauts to Mars, we must carefully examine the results of Viking’s experiments and compare them to the most recent evidence that life could exist on Mars, such as recent discoveries that the planet had an atmosphere and large reservoirs of water at some point during its evolution, leading many scientists to believe that, at least at some point, living organisms existed on Mars.

Despite the fact that there are numerous speculations and evidence that life once existed on Mars, no scientific agreement exists that any planet other than Earth has generated a life form. However, you must take Levin’s cautions seriously, since if there are live microbes in Mars’ soil, sending people there might be highly perilous, as it is impossible to predict how these germs and bacteria would behave. If these astronauts bring samples back to Earth, it will be crucial to know whether or not there is life on Mars before sending the first people out to investigate the Martian surface.
