They (NASA) have failed too many times recently in advising of apperance of and incoming meteors, asteroids, etc. Because...they didn't see them coming.

Nonsense , TB145 was 1.5 lunar distances from Earth , it was nowhere near us.

Do you think they are trying to fool us into justifying the $Billions they get in state funding, which in real terms is just added to the national debt, which in real terms keeps the taxes flooding in, thereby keeping the wealthy wealthier?

Is the confirmation breaking news?

I thought it's been common knowledge for the past twenty or thirty years that the lack of a strong magnetic field is what cost our red neighbor their atmosphere...I never knew it wasn't a confirmed thing and just a theory. How many millions of NASA funds went to confirming what they already knew?


More like $Billions.

That's the cost of discovery in our solar system and beyond.

I don't even know why we are looking for another planet, when we can't take care of the one we inhabit.


Sympathy with that
although I think humans as bad custodians syndrome gets overplayed, while some countries do pollute a lot, some are making strides to end the pollution. I mean most of the world is uninhabited, you could fit the world's population in the UK, while in space you can barely see it on the globe. Not very subtle I know, but at least it's some comfort to know that the Mars inhabitants didn't destroy themselves from within!

if only Tesla was alive today, he would be figuring out a way to rebuild Mars magnetic field.


That's possible, although he might have considered a way of electrocuting some of the scientists of the day..just to get them off his back.

So.... Obviously it does not have a molten iron core any more. (And probably has no volcanic activity on the surface any more either)

Anyone for playing with some nukes? I'll get the core red hot again for ya 😀

No, wait , it does have volcanic activity.
www.volcanodiscovery.com...

The core must have stopped rotating, oh well still an excuse to Nuke something.

This is very significant news because our own magnetic field is getting weaker.


If our magnetic field was gone tomorrow it would still take millions and millions of years to strip away our atmosphere to the point where it would threaten our existence.


Moreover, just because this news is "official" is hardly a guarantee of it being the truth.

I know there are some countries taking the whole sustainability and economics of the utilities required to run a semi civil society, seriously.

But for me fracking could be our undoing. I don't believe in the man made climate change, but Mother Earth will bite back on this. Injecting chemicals into the very Earth we rely on for our sustenance.

It won't end well.

Why?

There's no reason to suspect that they haven't been telling the truth as far as the condition of Mars and its history.

Too well named, in plain sight.

How wrong you are. Without a magnetic field / shield are eaths atmosphere would be so dramatically different that humans would have to find a way to live in the sea in order to survive.

No..We wouldn't.

I'd suggest reading up on the subject a bit more.

Obviously, those silly Martians didn't raise their taxes high or fast enough to save their planet.

Please stop giving the IRS any ideas..

What is your reason to assume they have been? Because government never lies to you? Because your 4th grade science book is gospel? NASA is infamous for hiding the truth about space.

There's no need to be condescending.

I just don't think YouTube "Anomaly" videos, random conspiracy internet posts, wild speculation, and deliberately bias attitudes and accusations are valid.

Yep, let's save a planet with nukes. It will be fun, and if Hollywood did it, it's proven science right?

Nukes for peace !

So can we deduce from this that all Mars sized planets are doomed early on or did our Mars lose its magnetic field through unusual circumstances ?



Not sure, but a smaller molten core on a smaller sphere would tend to cool off faster I should think.
