How do I put this? Dr. John Brandenburg is a plasma physicist. He has good credentials, and has done consulting work on propulsion systems and space
missile defense systems (including directed energy weapons). And so, he very much has a DoD mindset.
As far as his speculations regarding advanced Martian civilizations and nuclear "airburst" detonations leading to their demise goes, he has met
considerable resistance from most of the scientific community. However, certain aspects of his proposal regarding nuclear reactions taking place on
the planet have met with much less resistance. Other scientists have proposd that naturally occurring nuclear processes may account for the
observations. In any case, more investigation is required.
I must say, while suggesting an advanced Martian civilization destroyed itself in a nuclear holocaust is much more appealing to the imagination, a
more scientific approach would be to rule out natural causes first.
The thing is, a person can be both an established scientific authority on certain aspects of nature and a certified whack-job on others.
analysis of the distribution of radioactive nuclear isotopes present on Mars and in it’s atmosphere may be groundbreaking, while his speculations
about their origin may be more suitable in an Immanuel Velikovsky type novel.
Personally, I have strong feelings about the Biker Chicks On Mars
. In some of those NASA images I know I’ve seen tire tracks in the dirt, and
in one of them just as clear as day their was a pair of panties right next to a rock. Hey, seeing is believing. Can’t argue facts...
