NASA Denies to Accept It Discovered Life on Mars, Defying Claims of Former Employee

Science

Reportedly, NASA has denied accepting an explosive claim from an ex-employee that it had found life on Mars in the 1970s. NASA’s representative Allard Beutel said the collective general opinion of the large majority of the scientific community does not believe the results of the Viking experiments alone rise to the level of extraordinary evidence. He added one of NASA’s primary aim is to search the existence of life in the universe. As per the executive, they have not yet found signs of extraterrestrial life. Currently, the American space agency is exploring the solar system and beyond to assist fundamental questions. It also includes efforts to know whether Earth is the only planet to have life over it.

Allard said NASA’s science space missions are functioning together with an aim to discover unmistakable signs of life in neighboring planets. The efforts range from studying water on Mars, probing promising ‘oceans worlds,’ such as Enceladus and Europa, to looking for biosignatures in the atmospheres of planets outside our solar system. The reliable denial statement arrives just after an ex-NASA employee Gilbert Levin, released ab op-ed which revealed he believes data from the Labeled Release (LR) in 1976 was supportive of finding life.

Dr. Gilbert has worked with the American space agency on the Viking Mars landers in the 1970s. He claims NASA had already answered the “ultimate question”, that is, that Mars supports alien life. Even more, the scientist claims the rover he worked on has discovered biological formations that have shown the presence of microbial organisms. As per Dr. Gilbert, a total of four positive results relayed from the spacecraft that suggested there was life on Mars. Even more, as the study progressed, a total of four positive results, supported by five different controls, relayed from the twin Viking spacecraft landed some 4,000 miles apart. The information curves had indicated the direction of microbial respiration on Mars. Apart from this, the curves from the Red Planet were the same as the results of LR tests of soils on Earth. The researcher also noted that despite having supportive readings, NASA has dismissed the finding as false readings.
