Nasa forced to deny there was a long-lost ‘civilisation’ on Mars after questioning by Republican congressman
NASA was forced to confirm that there is almost certainly a lost civilization long ago on Mars.
During a hearing in the US Congress, senior space agency officials were asked if there could be people living on the red planet.
California Republican Dana Rohrabacher asked if the fact that Mars had a very different atmosphere since it meant that it could also support a civilization that was now lost.
“You have indicated that Mars was completely different there for thousands of years,” he said. “Is it possible that a civilization on Mars existed for thousands of years?”
His question was answered by Kenneth Farley, a mission project scientist in the March 2020 explorer and professor of geochemistry at the California Institute of Technology and was one of the scientists who answered questions from politicians.

He emphasized that “the evidence is that Mars was different there a billion years ago.There are not thousands of years.”
He also said that “there is no evidence that I know,” that the planet was once inhabited.
It was not enough for M. Rohrabacher, who asked, “Do you want me to exclude it? Look, there are people … Well, anyway?”
Professor Farley said that possibility was “very unlikely”.
It is not clear who speaks when M. Rohrabacher suggested that “some people” believe there was a civilization on the planet.
However, there are a limited number of people who have offered what they believe to be proof not only of the ancient but existing civilizations – including a guest on the infowars program Alex Jones who suggested that NASA has put sex slaves for the Children on the red planet.
Otherwise, the audience focused on NASA’s plans to explore Mars, which will include the search for life on the planet. Some evidence has shown that Mars could be home to some life – but not a civilization.
The mission will be launched in 2019 and will arrive in Mars the following February. It will remain there – in search of life and the accomplishment of another work – by a Martian year, or approximately two terrestrial years.
