I'd say he's jumping the gun on exo-biology just a bit. But interesting how he sees this from the view of his expertise. I imagine anyone from any branch of biology could see things related to their area of interest.

What we need is to study is some real ET life, even if it's just microbes. However, it doesn't seem like finding life on other worlds is a big priority of the current space missions.

There is this weird thing happening with some scientists getting old. They start to entertain, let's say, more fringe ideas. This looks like one of such cases.

I think it is called philosopause.

PS: being a scientist doesn't mean he is right




It depends whether he confirms a majority held belief. That's how we distinguish the "good" ones.

in any case, I support this man, since I'm convinced of life on Mars anyway.

Interesting that Dr. Romoser used to work for the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID).

Dr. William Romoser (ResearchGate)

USAMRIID Wiki

It's a good job that he's independent now really, as his job could be on rocky ground for making such wild and outlandish claims.

See what I did there? 'Rocky groun,......?

Oh never mind, I'll just see myself out.

He actually said they live "in cliffs"!!


I have pondered before that there may be life in the gaps between the layers of the outcrops.

That's where I try to look for interesting stuff, sticking out from the layers.

WTF! NASA felt they actually had to respond to this.


IMO the chances of this being true have increased dramatically...

NASA denies there are living 'insect- and reptile-like creatures' on Mars



NASA has vehemently denied that there are living "insect- and reptile-like creatures" on Mars, after a professor at Ohio University made the controversial claim earlier this week.

"The collective general opinion of the large majority of the scientific community is that current conditions on the surface of Mars are not suitable for liquid water or complex life," Alana Johnson, NASA's Public Affairs Officer, said in a statement to Fox News.

Johnson added that one of NASA's objectives is "the search for life in the universe" and with the upcoming Mars 2020 rover, the government space agency hopes to take the next steps "in exploring the potential of past life on the Red Planet."


"NASA has vehemently denied that there are living "insect- and reptile-like creatures" on Mars". Note they did not deny dead "insect- and reptile-like creatures" on Mars".

How come that gets published on Phys.org, but they refuse my Singular Particle hypothesis, and my dark matter prediction that has been supported by observation of black holes accretion disk spectrum?

It's high in minerals! And low in calories. I could suggest they look like Kim Kardashian by now, but that would an insult to the insects

I don't know the URL for the original press release, but both the phys.org link on the opening post and the EurekaAlert one were saved by archive.org, so they are not completely missing.

If you go to the link in my last post you will see screen caps of the 404 at Ohio University.

Really, archive.org archived it. Good to know, who would of thunk it. So did I.


The point is not that it has been removed from the internet, that is very hard to do.

NASA didn't like it. It was 404'ed at many places. Why is that?

I don't think it was a question of NASA liking it or not, for them is just another nutty professor.

The link you posted says that "the faculty member no longer wishes to engage with media regarding this research, so we have opted to remove the story from our website and EurekAlert", so it sounds to me like he was expecting a different reception for his work.

Then why did NASA make a big deal of denying it. Plenty of nutty professors say plenty of nutty things and NASA does not comment nor deny them.

I don't see NASA's answer as a "big deal".

NASA's answer was a "statement to Fox News", given by Alana Johnson, NASA's Public Affairs Officer. And the answer was only that "the collective general opinion of the large majority of the scientific community is that current conditions on the surface of Mars are not suitable for liquid water or complex life", they didn't "vehemently denied it", like Fox News says in their first paragraph on the article about NASA's answer.

To me, a big deal would have been a public announcement by NASA's chief scientist for Mars or something like that.

You are right they didn't really make that big of a deal about it, my bad on the hype.


Just seems strange they even commented on it to me.
