The atmosphere of Mars is very dry and it is so thin that there is no chance of the existence of water.
But the alien hunters claimed that they have found proof there was once green vegetation-‘the petrified remnants of a Martian tree’.
Curiosity rover on Sol 164 clicked an image that has suggested that there is an ancient tree stump on the red planet which stands about three feet high. They alleged the image is an evidence that a variety of plants “either existed or still exist” on the planet.
Paranormal Crucible first published the sighting on YouTube. The alien hunter and YouTuber wrote in the video description, “This object definitely looks out of place and in my opinion could be the petrified remnants of a Martian tree.”
It also said, “Object is around 3 feet in height, and with numerous discoveries of plant and animal life on mars, it would be logical to assume, that a variety of tree either existed, or still exists on this enigmatic planet.”
NASA said that the image was snapped by the Mastcam onboard NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity on Sol 1647 in March.
But it may be just a theory, it may be just one of the many rocks found on the planet. Conspiracy theories believe that the image could prove that life was present at some point on the Red Planet.
Martian researcher Scott C Warning said on UFO Sightings Daily, “It is a good assumption since NASA themselves said Mars was Earth-like when a solar explosion hit the planet, stripping the atmosphere and oceans from the surface.”
If trees still existed on the Red Planet then it would need enough source of water. Others claimed that last year they have seen the evidence of water in NASA images.
Will Farrar who runs the YouTube channel said he believed they showed the images of water taken by NASA’s Mars Global Surveyor.
“It is a good assumption since NASA themselves said Mars was Earth-like when a solar explosion hit the planet, stripping the atmosphere and oceans from the surface. This has never been addressed by NASA since we are still looking for these ‘minuscule’ traces of life and water. I ask you to use your judgement on this one. What does this look like to you?”
Despite this evidence, NASA said it has yet to find out the proof for significant levels of liquid water.
There is a hope that water ice may exist in craters close to the poles and possibly buried under the surface in the planet’s soil.
