UFO hunters have long targeted Mars as the place where they are most likely to find alien life. One alien enthusiast believes he has now found that elusive evidence which would indicate intelligent life on the Red Planet.
Prominent conspiracy theorist Scott C Waring has claimed that he has found a piece of technology on Mars which came from an advanced aircraft.
The finding appears to be a smooth rock, but Mr Waring believes that the smoothness indicates that it is a manufactured item.
In turn, Mr Waring argues, this suggests that an intelligent species resides, or resided, on the Red Planet and built the spaceship.
The alien enthusiast found the items while browsing through NASA’s Midnightplanets site, and was quick to share his supposed discovery on his blog.
Mr Waring wrote on ET Database: “I found this strange part of a structure in a Mars sol 3 photo. The photo is on the NASA site Midnightplanets, an official site run by scientists working at NASA.
“The object I found has smooth edges and is rounded at its ends, almost like part of a wing from an aircraft that has been perfectly sliced open. “
“The object is too smooth and too perfectly proportioned to be a natural.
“There is a rock like substance that appears to have flowed out of the inside of the wing and solidified into a solid hard substance.
“This is absolute proof that an intelligent civilization once thrived on Mars.”
However, sceptics and NASA would say the item and other similar findings are just the effects of pareidolia – a psychological phenomenon when the brain tricks the eyes into seeing familiar objects or shapes in patterns or textures such as a rock surface.
“NASA really doesn’t care about finding life, or proving that life once existed on other planets.
“They only want to drip feed the public boring science facts to satisfy the public’s curiosity.
“Its called the trickle down theory and NASA perfected it.
“There is no doubt in my mind that this is a ancient fossil.”
