Scientist sues NASA, alleges it’s failing to investigate alien life on Mars

Scientist sues NASA, alleges it's failing to investigate alien life on Mars 2

A self-described scientist has filed a lawsuit alleging NASA is failing to properly investigate alien life.

Rhawn Joseph, who’s written several books on extraterrestrial activity, wants the space agency to further analyze a strange rock on Mars, which he believes is proof of Martian activity.

The author claims researchers have not properly analyzed the stone, which somehow appeared in front of the Opportunity rover last week.

The jelly doughnut-shaped rock initially baffled scientists after it mysteriously showed up in images taken less than two weeks apart.

It’s now believed it was simply knocked out of the ground by the planetary explorer.

But Joseph, a key writer with the online Journal of Cosmology, says the rock is “a living thing” and has now filed a lawsuit in a California court to make NASA examine it more closely.

Aimed at the agency and its Administrator Charles Bolden, Popular Science reports the suit requests NASA “perform a public, scientific, and statutory duty.”

To do this, it says, NASA needs to “closely photograph and thoroughly scientifically examine and investigate a putative biological organism.”

Joseph claims the rock was there the whole time, but that it just grew before it became visible.

“The refusal to take close up photos from various angles … to take microscopic images of the specimen … to release high resolution photos, is inexplicable, recklessly negligent, and bizarre,” his suit adds.

Joseph now wants Bolden and his rover team to take 100 high resolution close-up in focus photos of the rock from all sides under appropriate lighting conditions with minimum glare.

He also wants to see 24 microscopic, in-focus images of the exterior, lip, walls and interior of the specimen under appropriate lighting conditions.

And, finally, he wants the rover team to make all of the pictures available to him so he can analyze them himself.

NASA has yet to comment on the suit.

What is it?


They will never expose the truth to the public. Which is sad. I think we could progress as a civilization if everyone knew.


What’s the use of research and discovery if they keep us uninformed and enlightened? Waste of money, this is only purely for their own purposes.


They are robbing mankind of our natural evolution by keeping the truth from us about discoveries and technological advances.

Thank you. I have seen for myself a ufo and it actually made the newspaper so I know I’m not crazy. And just the impact it had on my way of thinking I think was a positive impact. I just don’t see how it could be a negative outcome to anyone. It would open up another world of learning and I think it’s exciting. My father in law says government in India is now in debate on if they will release what they know of other life forms. I really hope they do. Like I said I already know what… Read more »

So true, I agree


What do you expect on a dead planet like Mars.


They do but need to be cautious on what to tell the public who knows what the repercussions may be


Panic morals religion it is very selfish to think we are the only life in the vastness of the universe and surprisingly even the Catholic Church recognises this


So true. One repercussion could be panic. Well that’s one I can think of atm.


Ok , the first one to say something this scientist is over doing trying too sue NASA it a little ridiculous , NASA will say something about their findings when they are ready


Everyone has a right to their opinions


Every now and then a real special one pipes up on here to show the world why we are fucked. You my man are today’s fucken stupid person. Congrats.
