On Mars , the same ingredients of groundwater and uranium are present and it is likely that similar natural nuclear reactors formed and operated in Mars distant past .
Evidence exists that a large natural nuclear reactor formed and operated on Mars in the northern Mare Acidalium region of Mars. However, unlike its terrestrial analogs this natural nuclear reactor was apparently much larger, bred 233 U off of thorium, and apparently underwent explosive disassembly, ejecting large amounts of radioactive material over Mars surface
Natural Nuclear Reactors formed and operated on Earth, there is no reason this could not have happened on Mars. Conditions on Mars : lack of plate tectonics, and nearness to the asteroid belt, may have favored such occurrences in larger size and duration than on Earth. Changes in groundwater distribution, due to either climate change or loss of geothermal heat, may have triggered this event.
EVIDENCE FOR A LARGE, NATURAL, PALEO - NUCLEAR REACTOR ON MARS
The radioactivity being natural has the benefit of not indicating a past high tech civilization on or around Mars ... so there is that. It is a far, far simpler answer.
It supposes that there is NO life on Mars, now, to speak of due to it being nuked back to the stone-age...
well, if it was nuked IN the stone-age, that throws a wrench into that whole "stone-age" terminology, no?

I, too, would feel less forlorn if there were little wiggly lives on Mars... but that ain't the thread's contention. It supposes that there is NO life on Mars, now, to speak of due to it being nuked back to the stone-age... well, if it was nuked IN the stone-age, that throws a wrench into that whole "stone-age" terminology, no?

Chavez descendant good aliens told the truth, and in part it is killed, he's one of them as Fidel Che Gaddafi, Saddam Isabella Ivan the Terrible Dracula Caligula, Nero, Stalin Kennedy, etc. They want a good life for Aboriginal people of this planet against them in their countries and peoples waging war vile part of the descendants of aliens and there is no crime for which they will not go
