Who are these very intelligent people anyway? Do we have the letters from these 'highly intelligent' people? No, "unfortunately they were lost".... yeah ... VERY MYSTERIOUS.... April fools!
Don't ignore the fact that there aren't many facts to this...
World renowned astrobiologist Chandra Wickramasinghe is spitting mad. The eminent scientist recently reiterated the charge he made against the National Aeronautics and Space Administration back in 2008. Life on the Red Planet
The discovery of liquid water on Mars combined with earlier discoveries of organic substances in a meteorite that came from Mars, and also of methane in the Martian atmosphere all point to the existence of life—contemporary life—on the Red Planet," the scientist asserted.
NASA scientists believe that it is technologically possible at the present time to create considerable global climate changes, allowing humans to live on Mars. But this will not be by any means an easy task. Raising the atmospheric pressure and surface temperature alone could be achieved in a few decades.
The increasing temperature would vaporize some of the carbon dioxide in the south polar cap. Introducing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere would produce additional warming, melting more of the polar cap until it has been vaporized completely. This would produce an average temperature rise of 70 degrees Celsius.

It's not really a hoax "per se" though is it? It's a spoof documentary made for April fool's, it was never meant to be passed of as truth exposed as lies was it? As lies passed of as truth is the definition of a hoax...(even though it wasnt aired in April)

The full length video is fake. Listen to the dialogue at 12 minutes. There's no "uh" "um" or any sort of stutters at all... That's not normal speech.

Ok probably a dumb question....I know an astronaut would probably think of this..
But could they just be space dust reflecting the sun?
He does say it happens at each sunrise?
The answer wasn’t confirmed until the next Mercury mission, Aurora 7, with astronaut Scott Carpenter on board in May 1962. Carpenter also saw the fireflies, or snowflakes, as he called them, and quickly could identify the source. They were tiny white pieces of frost from the side of the spacecraft. Condensation gathered on the outside of the spacecraft as the capsule passed from the cold orbital darkness and warm sunlight, and then froze again, creating a layer of frost. As the spacecraft again came into sunlight, the frost flakes would come off and float around the capsule. The sunlight also illuminated them, making them “luminescent.” When Carpenter banged on the side of the capsule, more flakes came off and were visible.

This is a great story, but I adamantly believe this entire thing is a hoax. The video especially is a hoax. I love the bad, over-the-top acting present in this and other hoaxed films. While I think it is possible that the government has another space program that we don't know about, I don't find it all that likely. They are much too concerned about overseas issues centered around conflict.
