NASA Warns: We are ‘Not Prepared’ for News Coming About Life Mars

Alien life is a popular science fiction trope. However, what if it’s not fiction at all? There’s a lot of space out there that has gone undiscovered, so it would be naive to consider that Earth is the only planet that has life on it. With new rovers heading to Mars, scientists warn that we are not prepared to learn that there may be alien life on the red planet.

Over the past few years, NASA has been working to learn more about Mars. As the chief scientist warns, we might not be prepared for what we actually find.

Dr. Jim Green believes that we could be overwhelmed by what the various studies produce. This is all as two rovers from the European Space Agency and NASA prepare to embark on the planet next summer.

The potential discoveries are being compared to what Nicolaus Copernicus discussed during the Renaissance era. Copernicus hypothesized that the earth revolves around the sun instead of the sun revolving around the earth. Many people thought that he was mad. However, it was his model that helped to revolutionize science in the 16th century. It also caused him to be condemned by the Roman Catholic Church because of how the model went against the doctrines as they related to astronomy.

Copernicus was responsible for causing the world to look at science in a different way. It caused people to create a whole new way of thinking.

That’s what life on Mars could result in, too. NASA scientists worry about what they’ll find because it’s going to cause people to rethink what they know about space and the unknown. Dr. Jim Green says that he believes they’re close to finding it and making announcements.

NASA will be launching Mars 2020 while the ESA will be launching ExoMars Rover. They’re going to drill about six and a half feet into the core of Mars so that samples can be taken. The hope is that these samples will provide evidence of life.

Samples will be processed and examined in a mobile lab. The goal is to find some kind of trace of organic material.

The ESA’s rover is already assembled and heading into testing. Legs and wheels will help it to maneuver on the red planet and obtain all of the needed samples.

If there are any biosignatures of life found on the crust of Mars, it will establish a new level of astrobiology. It will lead to even more questions including how life is like life on earth and what the relations are. After that, there will be the question of whether it’s possible to move from planet to planet or if there is a specific chemical environment on a planet that only allows certain types of life to thrive.

The trek to mars is 140 million miles away. NASA will be launching the Mars 2020 rover next July so that it can land on the Jezero Crater of the red planet by February 2021. This means that it will take approximately seven months for the rover to travel that amount of distance before any real research can begin.

The rovers have been built to collect an unprecedented amount of data. This includes visual data and images of the terrain on Mars. The Mars 2020 will be equipped with a detachable helicopter drone as well as two high-definition cameras. The amount of information will allow scientists to comb over the data for years to examine all sorts of information.

All of this, too, is based on the assumption that the life on Mars would be carbon-based like it is on Earth. There is always the possibility that the samples will yield other results, too.

There have already been some details captured from previous missions. An ancient stream was discovered on Mars, with many believing that it once flowed with water. The Mars 2020 will collect samples to make it easier to know if it was, in fact, water that used to flow on the planet.

While many scientists will pass off the mission in 2020 as purely scientific, the basic mission is simple: Find signs of life. This means that the rovers, while still producing amazing photos of the cliffs and caverns of Mars, will also be collecting rock so that they can identify if there are any biosignatures –also known as signs of life.

NASA believes that they’re only a mission a way of finding civilizations existing on other planets, and the mission to Mars is a great place to start.

  1. They must be impeached both and put them in jail and trow away the keys for ever. That is the best thing they deserve. I never like people who lied. They do not know how to loose. They do not accept the defeat. Pelosi, should be home taking care of her great,great grand kids. She should hang it up go home and rest.

  2. The trouble with Socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.

    Political Philosophies Explained
    in Simple, “TWO COW” TERMS.

    SOCIALISM:
    You have two cows; You keep one and give one to your neighbor.

    COMMUNISM;
    You have two cows; The Government takes them both and
    provides you with milk.

    Fascism:
    You have two cows; The Government takes them both and
    sells you the milk.

    Bureaucracy:
    You have two cows; The Government takes them both,
    shoots one, milks the other, pays you for the milk, and
    then pours it down the drain.

    Corporate:
    You have two cows: You sell one, force the other to produce the milk of
    FOUR cows; and then act surprised when it drops dead.

    Democracy:
    You have two cows: The Government taxes you to the
    point that you must sell them both in order to support a man in a
    Foreign Country who has only ONE COW, which was a gift from
    your Government.

    Capitalism:
    You have two cows; You sell one and buy a bull.

  3. It still doesn’t sound like they think that there is sentient life on Mars. Big deal. There is still less life in Bernie S than on Mars.

  4. From the headline, the article made noise like something that hasn’t already been hashed over and over was to be discussed. Nothing ground shaking here. Old news. Time and effort wasted.
    Thank you very little 😊.

  5. S chiff is a dangerous man, he must step down and out. Pelosi
    is over the hill, she should go home to all her wealth.

  6. Why are all professional sports engaged in that venture with very few caucasions when in their beginnings were white? Blacks comprise roughly 13- 15 percent of the population and over 90% of players. Is everybody afraid to sue over racial quotas. All professional players were white until legal action was taken by progressive lawyers. Again, why?

  7. for how many years, the rovers found no actual life on mars. i think their, fantasy optimism is greater than reality.

  8. Why would we not be prepared for learning that there is life on Mars . We hear about aliens and ET ‘s everyday on TV everyday. The only ones not prepared for outspace life is the government. Everyone else is realistic!

    youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
