Barry DiGregorio, a scientist, called out NASA for trying to conceal the truth about the possible existence of alien life on Mars. He alleged that the agency deliberately disregarded the photos showing what looks like to be trace fossils created by soft-bodied life forms.
The scientist revealed that the pictures were taken by NASA's own space explorer, called the Curiosity Rover, but the agency seems to be hiding the details of what they actually found -- a bunch of fossilized tracks or footprints.
DiGregorio asserted that he would drop the bomb very soon. On that day, he will disclose how the U.S. science agency is keeping its findings a secret to the public.
The former research fellow at the University of Buckingham further stated that NASA is very aware about the alien life on Mars but it is not saying anything because they want to carry out an in-depth exploration of the planet through a manned mission, supposedly scheduled for 2030.
Last month, NASA released photos of what they claimed to be rock crystals that formed in the red planet. The agency relayed that they are currently examining the "star-shaped and swallowtail-shaped tiny, dark bumps in fine-layered bright bedrock of a Martian ridge." However, Barry DiGregorio insists that these are not rock crystals but traces of alien fossils.
"If you look at the images more closely, the sticks merge into the host rock, this actually has features in it that are reminiscent of trace fossils," the researcher told the Daily Star Online.
"He added, 'Crystals don't add up. Crystals don't branch or twist. We're talking about something that might have been equivalent to the Ordovician period on Earth.'"
