Physicist Claims Evidence Ancient Nuclear Explosions Ended Life On Mars

Brandenburg believes nuclear events wiped out all life on Mars.

A plasma physicist is advancing a theory in which he claims to have evidence of two ancient nuclear explosions on Mars, events that he believes wiped out an ancient civilization on the red planet.

According to the Daily Mail, Dr. John Brandenburg is set to present his theory at the 2014 Annual Fall Meeting of the American Physical Society in Illinois, which will be held this Saturday. His lecture, Evidence of Massive Thermonuclear Explosions in Mars Past, The Cydonian Hypothesis, and Fermi’s Paradox, will examine the theory, which he also advances in a paper set to be published in the Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle physics.

“Given the large amount of nuclear isotopes in Mars atmosphere resembling those from hydrogen bomb tests on Earth, Mars may present an example of civilization wiped out by a nuclear attack from space,” he wrote.

Brandenburg’s research centers around a high concentration of Xenon-129 in the atmosphere of Mars, as well as an abundance of Uranium and Thorium on the planet’s surface, as Vice notes. He claims that Mars was the site of several “massive radiological events,” which were responsible for the current concentrations of radioactive elements.
“This pattern of phenomenon can be explained as due to two large anomalous nuclear explosions on Mars in the past.”
Brandenburg, who holds a degree from UC Davis, has previously claimed that Mars was once home to two ancient civilizations, known as Cydonia and Utopia, which possessed a level of technology similar to that of the ancient Egyptians.

“Analysis of new images from Odyssey, MRO and Mars Express orbiters now show strong evidence of eroded archeological objects at these sites,” he wrote. “Taken together, the data requires that the hypothesis of Mars as the site of an ancient planetary nuclear massacre, must now be considered.”

Observers have long claimed to see evidence of ancient civilizations in photos sent back by rovers on the surface of Mars, as the Inquisitr has previously noted. Brandenburg asserts that the infamous “face on Mars,” which was found in the Cydoina region, is an artifact from an ancient alien race.

Brandenburg also believes that his theory could explain the Fermi Paradox, which questions why humanity has yet to contact alien life, despite the mathematically high probability of its existence. Warning that mankind should be wary of such an attack on our own planet, he advocates a manned mission to Mars in order to study any remaining evidence.

The upcoming book Death on Mars: The Discovery of a Planetary Nuclear Massacre is authored by Brandenburg and further details his theories.

On a More Positive Scientific Note...

CERN scientists discover 2 new subatomic particles

Associated Press
GENEVA (AP) — Scientists at the world's largest smasher said Wednesday they have discovered two new subatomic particles never seen before that could widen our understanding of the universe.
An experiment using the European Organization for Nuclear Research's Large Hadron Collider found the new particles, which were predicted to exist, and are both baryons made from three quarks bound together by a strong force.

In a statement Wednesday, officials at the lab known by its French acronym CERN announced the discovery, which could shed more light on how things work beyond the "Standard Model" physics theory explaining the basic building blocks of matter. The results also were submitted to the publication Physical Review Letters.

"Nature was kind and gave us two particles for the price of one," said one of the CERN collaborators, Matthew Charles, of the CNRS's LPNHE laboratory at Paris VI University.

The new particles are more than six times as massive as the protons that scientists have been deliberately crashing into each other in a 17-mile (27-kilometer) tunnel on the Swiss-French border near Geneva to see what they can discover about the makeup of the universe and its tiniest particles.

The heavier weight of the two particles is due in part to their "spins" in opposite directions which is "an exciting result," said Steven Blusk of Syracuse University in New York.

CERN-based physicist Patrick Koppenburg said the study, using data taken during 2011 and 2012, could help differentiate between Standard Model effects and "anything new or unexpected in the future."

Teams of thousands of CERN scientists also used the state-of-the-art particle accelerator to discover the subatomic particle known as the Higgs boson, without which particles wouldn't hold together and there would be no matter. The discovery helped Peter Higgs win the Nobel Prize by proving his theories right.

Incredible Explosion Over Russian Sky...

I don't think this is a laughing matter (not that anyone is laughing) but in a nuclear age, when relationships between Russia & America are @ their all-time lowest, since the beginning of the cold war...we have this spectacular explosion over Russia's sky...

NATO reports 'large scale' Russian air activity in European airspace

Brussels (AFP) - NATO said Wednesday it had tracked and intercepted four groups of Russian warplanes "conducting significant military manoeuvres" in European airspace over the past two days.
"These sizeable Russian flights represent an unusual level of air activity over European airspace," NATO said.

The planes, which included strategic bombers, fighters and tanker aircraft, were detected over the Baltic Sea, North Sea/Atlantic Ocean and the Black Sea on Tuesday and Wednesday, it said.
NATO allies sent up aircraft to intercept and identify the Russian planes which were continually tracked on the ground as well, it said in a report from its SHAPE military headquarters in Mons, western Belgium.

The report made no mention of the Ukraine crisis nor linked the increased activity to it.
However, Russia's intervention in Ukraine, which NATO has said constitutes the most serious threat to US-Europe security since the Cold War, has sent tensions soaring.

NATO's eastern members, many of them such as Poland and the Baltic states once ruled from Moscow, have been particularly nervous and the US-led alliance has put in place additional aircraft and personnel on a rotating basis to reassure them.

At a summit last month, the 28 NATO leaders agreed the alliance would have to step up its readiness levels in response.

Russia's intervention and the speed with which it was able to bring military pressure to bear on Kiev in support of pro-Moscow rebels in the east surprised many and badly rattled countries on NATO's eastern flank.

- Sharp increase in NATO intercepts -

In a breakdown of the incidents, NATO said that in the early hours Wednesday, eight Russian aircraft -- four TU-95 strategic bombers, capable of carrying nuclear weapons, and four tankers -- were detected over the North Sea, flying in international airspace.

Four Norwegian F-16 fighters were sent up to intercept them.

Six of the aircraft then turned back towards Russia while two TU-95s continued over the North Sea, with British Typhoon fighters called in.

The two planes then flew down into the Atlantic, where Portuguese F-16s picked them up.
The two bombers subsequently turned around, flying west of Britain, apparently heading back to Russia, it said.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday afternoon, a mixed force of at least seven Russian warplanes were intercepted over the Baltic Sea, while another two TU-95s and two Su-27 Flanker fighters were intercepted by Turkish fighters over the Black Sea.

On Tuesday, another seven Russian planes flew over the Gulf of Finland and Baltic Sea where they were intercepted by German Typhoon fighters, deployed as part of NATO's support efforts for its eastern allies.

In this case, the Russian aircraft had filed a flight plan with air traffic control authorities, were using transponders, but did not maintain radio contact with civilian air traffic control.

Unannounced flights "pose a potential risk to civil aviation... (as) civilian air traffic control cannot detect these aircraft nor ensure there is no interference with civilian air traffic," it said.

NATO said there had been more than 100 intercepts of Russian aircraft in 2014 to date, about three times more than in 2013.

"Scrambles and intercepts are standard procedure when an unknown aircraft approaches NATO airspace," it said.
