Alien Genocide? Nuclear War Wiped Out Ancient Civilizations on Mars, Says Scientist Brandenburg (PHOTOS, VIDEOS)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

As Earthlings struggle for power and the new arms race has become a race to stop neighboring countries from owning nuclear power, have you ever thought about the future of the Earth and its inhabitants? Nuclear war is a possibility that has troubled mankind for decades and we’ve seen the after affects of dropping “The Bomb.” Could Mars have been the home planet of a civilization that was decimated by nuclear war?

John Brandenburg, a plasma physicist at Orbital Technologies in Madison, Wisc. believes the Martian race was wiped out by nuclear explosion. In 2011, Brandenburg introduced the theory that the red color on Mars is due to a naturally occurring thermonuclear explosion,according to Daily Mail.

“The Martian surface is covered with a thin layer of radioactive substances including uranium, thorium and radioactive potassium – and this pattern radiates from a hot spot on Mars,” Brandenburg previously said. “A nuclear explosion could have sent debris all around the planet.”
However, the scientist with a PhD in Theoretical Plasma Physics from the University of California at Davis now believes ancient Martians – known as Cydonians and Utopians – were victims of genocide.


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, Brandenburg wrote in a paper he shared with Vice.
“It is possible the Fermi Paradox means that our interstellar neighborhood contains forces hostile to young, noisy, civilizations such as ourselves,” the paper continued. ”Such hostile forces could range from things as alien as AI (Artificial Intelligence) ‘with a grudge’ against flesh and blood, as in the movie Terminator, all the way to things as sadly familiar to us as a mindless humanoid bureaucrat like Governor Tarkin in Star Wars, eager to destroy planet Alderann as an example to other worlds.”


A video posted by a French YouTube channel depicts the “cloud of smoke” on Valles Marineris, a 2,500-mile (4,000km) long canyon on Mars. ”The image shows a huge mushroom cloud and we may wonder whether it is an enormous rare dust wind cloud, or caused due to a nuclear or methane explosion,” the video said.


An astronomer at the University of Southern Queensland, Australia, Jonti Horner, told the Express“Fun as it would be to imagine that this is evidence of nuclear weapons on Mars, or even the impact of a chunk of Comet Siding Spring smashing into the planet, that’s sadly just not the case.”
According to Horner, the “cloud” is merely an optical illusion.
Brandenburg, whose next paper is set to be published in the Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics, claims that Mars was once Earth-like with advanced civilizations like the ancient Egyptians. Brandenburg claims his theory is supported by the ‘high concentration’ of Xenon-129 in the Martian atmosphere, plus surface uranium and thorium, as seen by Nasa’s Mars Odyssey spacecraft, according to Daily Mail.
Brandenburg also used data from his studies of two sections of the Red Planet to support his theories, including Cydonia, where the now-discredited “face on Mars” was discovered. Brandenburg claims the face is an ancient artifact from the Martians that previously inhabited the planet.


Brandenburg believes the face on Mars is an artifact left by ancient Martians.


Later, the face on Mars was discredited as just a shift in the dunes.

One of the alleged nuclear explosions occurred at Cydonia Mensa and a smaller explosion destroyed a civilization at a region called Galaxias Chaos, according to Daily Mail.
“Analysis of new images from Odyssey, MRO and Mars Express orbiters now show strong evidence of eroded archeological objects at these sites,” Brandenburg wrote in an abstract, according to Daily Mail. “Taken together, the data requires that the hypothesis of Mars as the site of an ancient planetary nuclear massacre must now be considered.”
Brandenburg asserts the Fermi Paradox – why, if there is life out there, have we not run into any alien life forms – could be explained by his theory. Or, as Eric M. Jones wrote in “An Account of Fermi’s Question,” “Where is Everybody?”

    The explosion on Mars was water vapor. Much of the water on Mars is under the surface. Generators are being used to return the water to the atmosphere. The Human/Reptilian cities on Mars are working to restore more amenable conditions for life on the planet. Oxygen in the atmosphere is 18%, high enough to support the human and reptilian life.

    Mars is 13 kilometers thicker on one side than the other. Planet Marduk was blown up sometime in the past and the resulting debris field hit Mars and ripped off it’s atmosphere. The Saturn moon Iapetus was also hit by the Marduk debris field and that is why it is dark on one side and light on the other.

    Thanks for providing the flat projection of mars’ surface… NOW LOOKE AT IT! The blue below the equator shows a large impact site… 180 degrees to the left (west?) above the equator is where the crust rises/erupts from the shock of being impacted… like a gunshot wound on a massive scale… the event (no doubt) blew whatever atmosphere mars had away… along with whatever surface water, lifeforms, etc… the two moons are nothing more than large remnants of the impact object (if not crust) ejected from the impact but did not have the speed to escape what gravity remained. Look at it!!! Common sense is not hard… works every time its tried. Oh, and you’re welcome, now you know more than all the P.h.D’s whose degrees aren’t worth the paper they are written on (they can’t find their own asses with both hands on them).

    Next week I will solve the nation’s debt crisis with a nickel and a chain letter (channeling my inner democrat party nonsense).

    Most of the devastation on Mars could be explained by the destruction that created the asteroid belt. However, the radioactive isotopes present were something I did not know.

    As soon as I started watching the video, I was impressed by the assertion that Mars was destroyed by an external alien civilization from space. Most people reading this have been warned somewhere that whoever is running this planet has planned an alien false flag attack to unite Earth into one world government. If there is any credibility to his assertion that Mars was destroyed by a nuclear war, there is still none to require that it must have been done by an outside alien attack. I suspect that this scientist has deeper connections.

    Remember on 16 March 2015, the top scumbag military General over all the military gave orders to his military below him launch a first strike nuclear attack to Russia, which was stopped by a honorable Capt who refused to give the launch codes to start it. This was the 2nd time 0bama gave such a order in the last 18 months; with the 1st one being dropped on Charleston SC in Oct 2013. See link below for all the news.

    The same war that destroyed the fifth planet also destroyed life on Mars. And wiped out ancient cultures on earth like Atlantis and Ur.

    The Hindu writings record wars with modern weapons.

    The writer of this needs to read Richard Hoaland’s site. The “Face on Mars” is NOT discredited.
