The longstanding question about the existence of life on Mars may have been answered, but one source believes the official news may have been a slip of the tongue. UFO Globe uploaded a compelling video of NASA chief Charles Bolden from an October 9 interview on the Mars Mission. He confirmed that the space agency does believe life existed for a time on the red planet. But then, he hesitantly said there may be evidence of current life forms.
"People always ask the question 'Why Mars?' Several reasons: One, Mars is very Earth-like, or least used to be Earth-like. It is a planet, a sister planet to Earth. It is the most likely planet in our solar system, um, that had life at one time... may have life now, and we feel can definitely sustain life."
A UFO Sightings Daily blogger, who claims to have a Masters in counseling, says that the NASA head's body language shows that he was a bit ahead of himself in revealing the part about life possibly still existing on Mars. He points to a slight hesitation from Bolden when explaining the state of the mission.
"Bolden then went on to say that Mars may still have life on it, but did you notice his hesitation. He hesitated when he began saying the part, '...may have life now.' He even squinted his eyes and cringed (right side) as if it hurt him to say it. Deep down inside he was dying to tell the world and finally allowed himself to slip it out to the public."
Nonetheless, the writer claims that the NASA chief's revelations are victories to UFO enthusiasts, who now have more reason to believe in extraterrestrial life. Moreover, Bolden's statements, according to the writer, validate what conspiracy theorists have held all along: Unidentified flying objects were not mere figments of Astro-biologists' imaginations after all.
Bolden is challenged with efforts to explore the crimson planet with a goal of landing manned assets on Mars. The multinational efforts are underway, but much work has to be done in terms of studying the impact of non-Earth environments and ecosystems on the human body. Much of the interdisciplinary preparation for a successful Mars landing should be done on the moon's surface.
Suddenly, ET and UFOs have taken on other meanings, perhaps, from science fiction to reality? Do you believe biological life forms exist on Mars?
