In a controversial reveal made by a scientist from Ohio University in the United States, indications that life on Mars exists in the form of insect-like critter appeared. However, NASA dismissed the recently elaborated theory.
What the scientist thinks that he has spotted regarding life on Mars
Professor Emeritus William Romoser analyzed several photos taken by the various Mars rovers that explored the planet in time. According to the scientist, there is evidence that insect-like creatures, looking like bees, and reptile-like critter roam the Red Planet.
“There has been and still is life on Mars. There is apparent diversity among the Martian insect-like fauna, which displays many features similar to Terran insects that are interpreted as advanced groups – for example, the presence of wings, wing flexion, agile gliding/flight, and variously structured leg elements,” William Romoser said.
He added that several photos, including some taken by Curiosity Rover, reveal that life on Mars is real and exists in the form of insects and reptiles. The researcher’s study on potential Martian organisms was presented during the Entomological Society of America national meeting.
NASA disagrees the theory elaborated by Professor Romoser
As we already know, many scientists hypothesized that life on Mars exists. However, until now, nobody could present irrefutable evidence that there are living organisms on the Red Planet.
NASA, as well as other space agencies, has sent many rovers and orbiters to study Mars. There are many intriguing findings regarding the planet, including the mysterious methane level spikes that could be the result of microbial life. However, there is no proof that life on Mars is real.
As regarding the most recent theory that there are insect- and reptile-like critters on Mars, NASA said that something like that is not possible, and Mars rovers would’ve already found it if it were.
