Just as NASA’s Apollo was brqanded a hoax by many physicists and critics, the current Curisoity rover gong around Mars surface and keeping enthusiasts on their toes about water, methane and possible life on Mars has led many to believe that it was a concocted story.
Some conspiracy theorists have said that alients were on Mars and helping Curiosity to detect the whereabouts of life and they cite a picture that was sent by Curiosity showing a human-like silhoutte. (See picture below).
The UFO afficianados have suggested that aliens were recruited by the US government and Gary MicKinnon, a cyber hacker, who reportedly got some classified information and documents of the US government said he has proof to show that there were ‘extra-terrestrial officers’.
The shadow of human-like figure is allegedly leaning over NASA’s Curiosity Rover on Mars, perhaps to repair it, hinting at the possibility that it was very much on an isolated place on Earth beaming nothing but our own planet’s surface that could be in our neighbourhood.
The website UFO Sightings Daily said, “This came in the email this morning. Someone who wants to remain nameless has found a shadow of a human-like being messing with the Mars Curiosity rover.”
the website said the person has no helmet, sports short hair and has air tanks on his back. It predicted that this could be because “the rover is on Earth and not Mars and humans are cleaning it off and performing maintenance” with a question tag. Secondly, it suggested that it woulc be another proof that humans are living on Mars in bases perhaps abandoned by aliens. Hacker Gary Mckinnon said that he found such evidence.
Thirdly, some aliens could be messing around with the rover, suggesting that life could be there on Mars already. However, the website escapes responsibility with the remark that NASA will not share or speak about it.
Whether NASA confirms or not, this could be a hoax that was being churned every week about Mars giving out extraneous angles to Mars and rumors about UFOs in general.
