Why is Mars red? The question has baffled scientists for decades, but a new theory by Dr. John Brandenburg is beginning to shed light on the complex mystery.
According to Brandenburg, there was an atomic nuclear explosion, equivalent to a 1 million mega-ton bomb, that took place in the northern Mare Acidalium region of the planet. It left the face of Mars scarred from pole to pole, leaving the regions nearest the explosion with high levels of radiation.
The chemical composition and atmosphere changed. The release from the explosion charged the atmosphere, producing unusually violent thunder strikes and lighting formations. The end result of these atmospheric changes lead to the red planet we see today.
Aliens push the big red button
Scientists say the blast was natural, but some are skeptic. How could such a powerful blast have been caused by natural reasons? An alternate theory is that an advanced alien race produced the mega-ton nuclear explosion that wiped off all life on the planet.
The theory relates to what we as humans face in the challenge of surviving in the nuclear age. The United States and its allies fear rogue nations and organizations gaining access to nuclear weapons and wiping out millions of people. The same situation could have taken place on Mars, with a much more advanced society that was able to produce a much bigger bomb.
Alien outlaws or cosmic greed?
Were the aliens intergalactic terrorists, or was it an accidental explosion of a planetary nuclear reactor? Mars may have only been used by the aliens as a mining resource, extracting minerals and geothermal heat from inside the planet. When the reactor went up in flames, the aliens wrote the planet off as a loss on their budget sheet and moved on, much like how the same happened with Halliburton and the explosion of the oil rig.
If people continue to hurt others on this planet for power and monetary gain, Mars may be a mirror into Earth’s distant future.
