A former NASA scientist, in a fantastic op-ed, said that he is 100% certain that NASA has found pieces of evidence of life on Mars back in the 1970s. Gilbert Levin worked on the Viking missions to Mars during those ten years, and he was sure that the data that was nicknamed Labeled Release (LR) in 1976 was all about life on Mars.
On the 30th of July, 1976, the LR came back from its initial results from Mars. Levin wrote this in the op-ed, which is named “I’m Convinced We Found Evidence of Life on Mars in the 1970s.”. as the experiment developed, they got four positive results, which were supported by five various controls, coming from the twin Viking spacecraft which landed 4,000 miles away.
He proceeded to say that the data curves showed microbial respiration on the Red Planet. These curves are quite similar to those that are produced by the LR tests of soil on our planet. The LR was led by Levin, who took samples of the land of Mars, which had in their composition contained organic compounds, and started to look for carbon dioxide. Apparently, the results showed that the carbon dioxide was regenerating, by microorganisms as on Earth
Fox News has asked NASA for comments on this story.
Levin actually criticized the space agency for not taking into account the RL findings, even if the company said that they found a substance that’s mimicking life, but it’s not actually life.
At about more than 43 years since Viking, none of NASA’s Mars lander has got a life-detection instrument to follow the exciting results. Instead of following those findings, the company launched some missions to Mars in order to find out if the planet is livable.
