‘A civilization on Mars thousands of years ago’: Congressman stuns NASA scientists

A California congressman baffled a panel of space experts testifying in Washington when he asked if it was possible that Mars was home to an ancient alien civilization. The panel told him that there was “no evidence” and it would be “extremely unlikely.”

hearing before the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology on Tuesday was interrupted when Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-California) requested additional time to ask the panel of scientists with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) if there was any evidence of archaic extraterrestrials living on the red planet.

‘A civilization on Mars thousands of years ago’: Congressman stuns NASA scientists

“You have indicated that Mars was totally different thousands of years ago,” said Rohrabacher, who is the vice chairman of the Science, Space and Technology Committee and a member of the Space and Aeronautics Subcommittee since he first entered Congress in 1989.

“Is it possible that there was a civilization on Mars thousands of years ago?” he asked.

Kenneth Farley, a professor of geochemistry at California Institute of Technology who worked on the Mars 2020 rover mission, fielded Rohrabacher’s question by first clarifying that “the evidence is that Mars was different billions of years ago, not thousands of years ago.”

“Billions… Well, yes,” Rohrabacher responded.

“There’s no evidence that I’m aware of,” Farley added before Rohrabacher interrupted.

“Would you rule that out? See, there’s some people… Well, anyway,”Rohrabacher said before being interrupted by Farley.

“I would say that is extremely unlikely,” Farley responded.

While it is unclear what Rohrabacher meant by “some people,” NASA recently had to respond to comments made by an InfoWars guest who claimed that there was a colony of kidnapped child slaves on Mars. NASA denied that there are any humans on the red planet.

Twitter erupted on Tuesday with many ridiculing Rohrabacher over his question.

Some Twitter users were even able to combine Rohrabacher’s comments on Mars to previous comments he made that have led some to accuse him of being soft on Russia.

He said there is no colony on Mars because it’s in Mars and he thinks he’s so smart to word it that way.

NASA scientists are talking like lawyers! What are they protecting – their knowledge, or their ignorance?

Guest

Why would nasa be stunned about something they already knew but aren’t telling us

Guest

This looks like John Crichton’s ship from the series Farscape

Guest

I didn’t realize it was heresy to ask if there was life on Mars or else where. The universe is infinite and with that infinite possibilities.

Guest

Not heresy. If u ask about potential for microbial life its a serious question. Ask about a civillization? I wouldnt advertise my ignorance like dat

Guest

My belief is that most red-haired Irish … reincarnated from ancient Martian civilizations .
If anyone ELSE wants to pursue my theory , you’re welcome to ….

Guest

Stupid question by a stupid man

Guest

Before I read is this more tripe??

Guest

Apparently he watched the justice league and thought Martian man hunter is real.

Guest

Why not and does it really matter now anyway?

Guest

Boeing and NASA has been working on setting up Space Station’s through out Space for Refueling stations for Future Space Exploration using NASA’s 2nd Space Craft did you know??¿¿.JW

Guest

It’s no doubt Aliens have inhabited every Planet in our Solar System and beyond,Mankind is the only intelligence species that’s still using Rockets to get from point A to B the Earth is the youngest Planet in our Solar System,Plus NASA only talks about where the Shuttle Program went,You don’t here about where NASA’s 2nd Space Program has Been know one knew about it did you 2 different Space Programs with your Tax dollars did you know ??¿¿,JW

Guest

“Everybody knows that there was a civilization on Mars. He just wanted to get their official denial on record!”

Guest

It’s pretty crazy when you ask any NASA scientist about life on mars or anywhere else they seem to get mad. They know Mars contains small life. There’s a high possibility that Mars had life long before that. According to the Annunaki Mars was a weigh station for when they used to ship the gold they stole from the Earth. I believe they annihilated the planet in order to hide they were ever there.

Guest
Well yes there is liffe on mars but most life on mars are sub terrean because of it out side atmosphere. Most planets provide life energy from the core/star/heart of that planet. Soon from now we on earth have to go back inner earth after our gods/leader or so called ‘higher man’ have finish instructed us to cause selfdestruction to ourselves, atmosphere and the known surface world . That’s why a lot research is going on to inner earth. That’s y I give kudos to hitler and sorry to who offend by saying this but he succeeded at what world… Read more »

Matthew Di Cesare… Your are work is equivalent to pre elementary student. I have no jealous towards your crapy art and can say in terms you can understand your drawings FUCKING SUCK! You simply have no talent. Artist think out of the box and you are NO Artist. The only box you look at is on a dudes croch. Matthew Di Cesare you have such unreachable goals and lack the ability to see you delusional reality. Cut that stupid hair and trim that beard and get a job, move out of your mom’s house and stop smoking crack.
Guest

Samuel Louis bro it must b fun to have the kind of brain that can come up with this shit

Guest

Matthew Di Cesare
Sanskrit is Hindu
Sumerian is cuneiform.
There’s a huge difference in the text.
And the Vedas are a verbal history.
There are some written down which have been translated.
And there’s Sumerian tablets that have been translated , can be found all over.
And no I don’t have a degree.
Ancient history is my hobby.
I took two semester of Greek and Egyptian history.
It’s what got me into Sumerian tablets.
Not to many classes on Sumerian

Guest

Christopher Rogers so you read sandscrit and read them huh? Well that’s cool. Where’s your degree from? Who did you study under?

Guest

Eric Myers so you read sandscrit and read them huh? Well that’s cool. Where’s your degree from? Who did you study under?

Guest

Spot on Eric Myers anyone that noes ancient history an as study the sumerian an maya cultures an many more will no the is no don’t about this the annunaki used Mars as a gold storage place on there way back an to from nibru study the tablets an the artfacts that go with the culture an many more cultures ………

Guest

Anyone who has read any of the Sumerian tablets can’t deny the anunnaki exist.
The details are to accurate and the descriptions of the solar system wasn’t even know to modern science till the 20th century.

Guest

More of an artist than stitchin was an archeologist:)

Guest

Jim Burnett what ever helps you feel better about yourself 😉

Guest

Oh and your artwork is of a slightly dark nature. And is good for a high school student.with no drive.. go back to the coffee shop and call yourself an artist.

Guest

Matthew Di Cesare there is nothing passive-agressive about me..I seen bullshit and I called it out.. I used my comprehensive skills of the English language.. and did it in a way that was politically correct.. but since it was used against you then you labeled it in the most negative way your limited education allowed.. I feel sorry for you.. had to grow long hair and the beard to stay in fashion.. just to be relevant for another day..

Guest

Jim Burnett what ever makes you feel better about yourself. Don’t be blind to your Passive aggressive nature.

Guest

No Matthew Di Cesare no one here is even in the slightest way envious of you and your “talent”. And it’s very comparable to your opinion.. uneducated and without any practical purposes..by the way I didn’t drop to your level.. I actually contribute to society in a positive way.. keep on in your way sir..it has you going places.. hahahaha

Guest

Slade Zorn lmao after looking at your “artwork” your jealousy is blatant. You’ll get better, just keep practicing. However, if I were you, I’d get my money back. Really hope you have a great day.

Guest

Jim Burnett btw, classy way of dropping to ones lvl

Guest

Jim Burnett aww you guys are hurt huh. It’s okay stitchin has about as much education in deciphering as I do in artwork. All things in due time, I’m only 31 orbits in after all 😉

Guest

Slade Zorn that really hit you in the chest huh. I’m sorry you don’t understand the term nefelibata. You only see what you want to see, but a true artist distinguishes between fantasy and reality. But like stitchin, you’ll believe what ever you want to. I’m glad you liked my artwork, be sure not to steal it 😉

Guest

Slade Zorni thought the same of his creations, but don’t drop to his level.. he knows it’s trash that’s why even with that remarkable name no one has heard if him.. I repeat don’t drop to his uneducated level

Guest

Indeed, why send rovers there if you’re not thinking you might find something?

Guest

To Matthew Di Cesare… Despite if you believe that stitching was not creditable. Your beliefs are irrelevant. Evidence is out there and has already happened. For an artist you sure are blind. And as an long time artist/ painter/ musician here at age 58 you should take some constructive criticism… take some art lessons because your paintings like technique and lack of creativity, it definitely shows in your worthless most unconstructive blind opinion. An artist thinks out of the box and learn some Sumerian art history.

Guest

Mars does have life, NASA knows that and it is a problem for their rover, Curiosity, its tires are being eaten by bacterias and fungi,just look up curiosity wheel damage

Guest

Wow seriously Matthew Di Cesare that man had more brains and vision,not to mention dedication to a subject he was passionate about..what do you do? And notice I didn’t go all toddler and call names.

Guest

Stichin was a brainless fraud. like a toddler trying to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphs
