Disclosure Starting in Mainstream Media: Viking Robots Found Life on Mars, Scientists Say
Posted by John MacHaffie
Viking robots found life on Mars in 1976, scientists say
Researchers put data into sets of numbers, then analyzed the results for complexity
New analysis of 36-year-old data, resuscitated from printouts, shows that
NASA found life on Mars, an international team of mathematicians and
scientists conclude in a paper published this week.
Further, NASA doesn’t need a human expedition to Mars to nail down the claim,
neuropharmacologist and biologist Joseph Miller, with the University ofSouthern California‘s Keck School of Medicine, told Discovery News.
“The ultimate proof is to take a video of a Martian bacteria. They should
send a microscope — watch the bacteria move,” Miller said.
“On the basis of what we’ve done so far, I’d say I’m 99 percent sure there’s life there,” he added.
Miller’s confidence stems in part from a new study that reanalyzed results from a
life-detection experiment conducted by NASA’s Viking Mars robots in
Researchers crunched raw data collected during runs of the Labeled Release
experiment, which looked for signs of microbial metabolism in soil
samples scooped up and processed by the two Viking landers. General
consensus of scientists has been that the experiment found geological,
not biological, activity.
The new study took a different approach. Researchers distilled the Viking
Labeled Release data, provided as hard copies by the original
researchers, into sets of numbers and analyzed the results for
complexity. Since living systems are more complicated than
non-biological processes, the idea was to look at the experiment results
from a purely numerical perspective.
They found close correlations between the Viking experiment results’
complexity and those of terrestrial biological data sets. They say the
high degree of order is more characteristic of biological, rather than
purely physical, processes. …
