Recently, a paper by John E. Brandenburg was published about two possible massive nuclear explosions on Mars. It shows that there are levels of isotopes present on Mars that are present during nuclear explosions here on Earth. He also tries to show that the faces on Mars are still real leftovers from an old civilization, and that aliens destroyed them. The civilization could have been destroyed for being too noisy, became too advanced and could have posed a threat, or were exterminated just like how we exterminate insects for being pests. It is easy for us to destroy an ant hill, and we don't give it a second thought.

Here is the paper.

The analysis of the isotopes and radiation on mars is rather interesting. However, I am skeptical about the section where he deals with the faces and pyramids on Mars. Just like how people see shapes and animals in the clouds, I think he is seeing something in simple random hills, mountains, and rocks.

Aliens destroying the old civilization on Mars is not the only explanation of the nuclear explosions. If there was an old civilization, nuclear war could have destroyed everything. One nation fires a nuclear weapon at another, the other retaliates, and they end up destroying each other. The explosions were powerful enough to end life across the entire planet.

Concerning the Fermi Paradox, could this be the Great Filter? The "Primitive" civilizations destroyed by aliens or destroying themselves in war or accidents? An interesting thought is the analogy of Earth to Milky Way. There could be one dominant species that controls/eliminates all others to continue to dominate and survive.

I'm sure this is all bogus but there was one set of images from the surface of Mars that got my attention. A plateau that had what looked like corner stones on three of the corners at almost perfect 90 degree angles. There were other features that made it appear to be some sort of structure.

I don't know what is more silly, people saying the new high resolution images of the "face" confirms their theory, or people saying a ray of light hitting a dirty spot on a camera lens on the ISS is an alien ship.

The point is that there are many tens of thousands of people that WANT there to be evidence of aliens, alien craft, and humanoids on Mars, and they will grab the slightest straw that seems to say that they've found it. The reasons for this are many.
    Conspiracy theories that the government is suppressing the truth
    The UFO brigade who have convinced themselves these things are real
    People who have just simply lost touch with reality
    Pseudo science mags make a good living pandering to them

This Brandenburg chappie will earn more money this year by his paper than you or I will, so who is the fool, him or us?
