Re: [ufodiscussion] Methane On Mars: The Plot Thickens/Corpses I have seen in Mars Rovers pics
- Before I was politely calling them fossils,but since no-one else seems to
find them but me,I'll describe the very human -looking corpses on Mars.I
have already described some LIVE ONES.Yes,I'm saying people live on Mars.The
corpses I have seen are mostly laying flat on the ground either face up or
face down.There is a distinctive CROWN marking on some of them where the top
of the forehead seems like a cleft ,darkened,as if split open,and the cleft
runs along the top of the head like a MOHAWK. A child,male,looking
about 10 years of age is dressed in a white space suit and white boots (or
other bright color) and has much darker skin than his suit.He has no hair
that I can see.A hat lays nearby. A female corpse with similar
head markings and within a thousand feet of the male child corpse is
actually closer to a small one or two seater flying vehichle about the size
of an average car ,but more missile shaped(aerodynamic,but without
wings).Her clothes are pretty worn away and what appears to be a "pet"
dragon corpse is resting at her side staring at her face,as if waiting for
her master to awaken.The female corpse appears mid-twenties,and breasts are
evident.She is face up,though facial features have been worn away by time.
Another ,less recognizable female corpse is mostly eaten away. Those are the
human-looking species. The more alien-looking species corpses are more
varied and harder to identify,yet some seem well-preserved as if they all
were caught up in some catacalism that wiped them out instantly.Some wear
goggles,and some others have much larger heads that are more triangular like
the ET Movie alien. There is one of these ET-style aliens half buried on the
rim of a small crater who was very musculat like an athlete and well
preserved and defined,without clothes.He was about average human size by my
estimate ,but could have been much stronger.Yet there are other ET-style
aliens that wouldnt rival him size and strenght-wise.It's as if he were the
alpha male,and I'm seeing younger versions or females. The famed
Dracos were at least at one time on Mars,I assume from one huge head in the
sand.If you saw a movie called "Enemy Mine" then this Draco was more robust
than the movie version,judging from the head(gorilla -sized). I'm
writing this now in 2005 to see how my observations size up against later
reports.If there are this many corpses along the trails of Spirit Rover then
much more info needs to be gathered to compare and challenge the
long-standing errors about the LACK of Life on Mars. Jerry Lehane III

Methane on Mars: the plot thickens
Discoveries of methane on Mars suggest it is actively being replenished -
but the source is a mystery (Image: ESA/DLR/FU Berlin, G Neukum)
Methane on Mars may be produced at rates 3000 times higher than previously
thought and partially destroyed by dust storms, controversial new research
The work is sure to reignite the debate over a possible biological origin
for the gas, but another team reports that subsurface volcanism alone - and
not life - can account for the gas.
Sunlight is thought to destroy methane molecules in Mars's atmosphere over
about 300 years. So recent discoveries of the gas by space- and ground-based
instruments suggested it is actively being replenished by geological
processes or - possibly - living microbes.
The mystery deepened when some researchers claimed to find methane
concentrated in certain locations on Mars. That is a puzzle because
atmospheric currents are expected to spread the gas evenly around the planet
in a matter of weeks or months.
Now, a team led by Michael Mumma of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in
Greenbelt, Maryland, US, reports further evidence of the phenomenon. Using
an infrared telescope in Hawaii and the Gemini South telescope in Chile, the
group found concentrations of methane ranging from zero to more than 250
parts per billion across Mars.
Such a drastic difference suggests something must be destroying the methane
before it can be mixed uniformly through the atmosphere, says Mumma. And if
it is destroyed in one month, he says, that implies it must be replenished
3000 times faster than current estimates suggest.
"There's a very significant increase required. But I think it's premature to
draw conclusions [about a biological source]," says Mumma, who will present
the results at a planetary sciences meeting in Cambridge, UK, in September
Still, he says the research begs the question of what - besides sunlight -
could be destroying the methane. Sushil Atreya of the University of Michigan
in Ann Arbor, US, and colleagues may have an answer and will be presenting
their work at the same meeting.
They say dust particles that collide during Martian dust storms can become
charged, with smaller particles gaining electrons and rising on air
currents. This creates a large electric field that can accelerate electrons
until they break apart water molecules in the atmosphere. The detritus from
this smash-up can then oxidise, or destroy, methane molecules.
It is not clear how large this dust-storm effect is, "but it does establish
for the first time that there are other mechanisms for producing oxidants",
Jim Lyons, a planetary scientist at the University of California in Los
Angeles, US, agrees. "It doesn't look to me like you have enough dust
activity to produce the electric fields you want to produce," he told New
Scientist. "But it's probably the best idea if we really do need a mechanism
for destroying methane in the atmosphere."
But he is sceptical that any methane exists on Mars - much less in different
concentrations across its surface. Still, he and colleagues have just
published a study showing that geological activity could explain any methane
that is present.
Recent high-resolution images of Mars reveal crater-free surfaces that may
have been covered by lava within the last 2 million years. That suggests
magma could still be flowing below the surface today, says Lyons.
He and colleagues say magma welling up about 10 kilometres below the surface
could melt any subsurface water ice and infuse it with carbon dioxide. As
the water cools, it would release methane to seep upwards into the
He says a patch of subsurface magma just 1 km wide could account for methane
at the 10 parts per billion level seen by some groups, and that a larger
patch could account for Mumma's reported values.
