London: A leading scientist has claimed that life on Mars was eradicated by bomb-weilding aliens and Earth should be ready for a similar nuke.
Plasma physicist, Brandenburg, said that they need to find out more about what happened to avoid the same terrifying ending to life on Earth, the Daily Star reported.
According to Brandenburg, the high concentration of Xenon-129 in the atmosphere on Mars and uranium and thorium on its surface, which were picked up by NASA's Mars Odyssey spacecraft, came from a nuclear explosion and didn't occur naturally.
He stated that Mars was inhabited by Cydonians and Utopians, who survived in an Earth-like climate with an abudance of animals and plants.
He added that given the large amount of nuclear isotopes in Mars atmosphere resembling those from hydrogen bomb tests on Earth, Mars may present an example of civilization wiped out by a nuclear attack from space.
The scientist continued that it is possible the Fermi Paradox means that Earth's interstellar neighborhood contains forces hostile to young, noisy, civilizations.
He added that such hostile forces could range from things as alien as AI (Artificial Intelligence) "with a grudge" against flesh and blood, as in the movie Terminator, all the way to things as sadly familiar to people on Earth as a mindless humanoid bureaucrat like Governor Tarkin in Star Wars, eager to destroy planet Alderann as an example to other worlds.
