NASA forced to deny conspiracy theory of slave colony in Mars !!

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is an independent agency of the executive branch of the United States federal government responsible for the civilian space program, as well as aeronautics and aerospace research.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower established NASA in 1958 with a distinctly civilian orientation encouraging peaceful applications in space science.   Since its beginning, most US space exploration efforts have been led by NASA, including the Apollo Moon landing missions, the Skylab space station, and later the Space Shuttle. Currently, NASA is supporting the International Space Station and is overseeing the development of the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle, the Space Launch System and Commercial Crew vehicles.  NASA science is focused on better understanding Earth through the Earth Observing System, advancing heliophysics through the efforts of the Science Mission Directorate's Heliophysics Research Program, exploring bodies throughout the Solar System with advanced robotic spacecraft missions such as New Horizons, and researching astrophysics topics, such as the Big Bang, through the Great Observatories and associated programs.

For a month or so,  NASA had been waiting for the right moment to launch clouds of red and blue-green vapor out into space.  On June 29, that moment finally came. A NASA sounding rocket launched at 4:25 a.m. EST from the agency's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia,  shot out 10 canisters about the size of a soda can, according to the agency.   The cans deployed blue-green and red vapor, which brightly colored puffs of " tracer vapors " that were seen from New York to North Carolina.  These clouds allow scientists on the ground to visually track how and where particles move in space.

The rocket was originally supposed to launch on May 31, but poor visibility and bad weather conditions delayed the mission a number of times. These space clouds weren't merely for show, however. The experiment was one of many missions in an international " Grand Challenge " initiative aimed at helping scientists probe two gaping holes in Earth's protective magnetic shield, called cusps.  The magnetic bubble that surrounds our planet is vital to life, since it deflects the sun's constant wind of high-energy particles - and protects against the occasional solar storm . Without this invisible force field, Earth may have gone the way of Mars, which lost its magnetic dynamo billions of years ago. That allowed the sun to blow most of the Martian atmosphere into deep space , turning a once wet and potentially habitable world into a dry and nearly airless global desert .

After launch, the rocket flew to an altitude of 118 miles, according to NASA.  According to NASA, the facility received nearly 2,000 reports of the cloud sightings from New York, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina.  While that is interesting the following news is not amusing ! -  Nasa has been forced to deny a bizarre conspiracy theory that it is running a child slave colony on Mars.

The theory was cooked up by an ex-CIA case officer who made the wild allegations on a US national radio show yesterday. In response, a Nasa spokesman said that 'there are no humans on Mars', and dispelled another rumour that the agency faked sending rovers to the red planet. The agency's statement comes just days after a rumour surfaced that it was soon to announce the discovery of alien life. The hacker collective Anonymous set conspiracy theorists abuzz this week after it claimed Nasa is on the verge of announcing the discovery of alien life.

In a video, shared to an unofficial YouTube channel said to be affiliated with the vigilante group, a masked presenter cited snippets of a recent talk by Nasa Associate Administrator Dr Thomas Zurbuchen to support their prediction. But shortly afterwards Nasa confirmed that no such announcement is on the way. Dr Zurbuchen took to Twitter on Tuesday to assure that the reports were false, and said that we still do not know if we are alone in the universe. Guy Webster, a spokesman for Nasa on Mars exploration, told the Daily Beast: 'There are no humans on Mars. There are active rovers on Mars. There was a rumor going around last week that there weren't. There are.

'But there are no humans.'  The child colony rumour surfaced on the national radio programme The Alex Jones Show, hosted by an eccentric conspiracy theorist of the same name.  Mr Jones has previously claimed that the notorious Sandy Hook shooting never happened and that the Boston bombings were a government hoax.  The bizarre Mars colony comments were made by Robert David Steele, a former CIA case officer who was a guest on this week's programme. Mr Steele, who runs his own conspiracy theory blog, claimed that children have been secretly shipped to Mars over the last two decades to work as slaves. 'We actually believe that there is a colony on Mars that is populated by children who were kidnapped and sent into space on a 20-year ride,' Mr Steele said.

'So that once they get to Mars they have no alternative but to be slaves on the Mars colony.' Mr Jones agreed, saying 'clearly they don't want us looking into what is happening' because 'every time probes go over they turn them off.' 'Look, I know that 90 per cent of the Nasa missions are secret and I've been told by high level Nasa engineers that you have no idea. There is so much stuff going on,' he said.

Nasa has been forced to deny a bizarre conspiracy theory that it is running a child slave colony on Mars. The theory was cooked up by ex-CIA case officer who spouted the wild allegations on a US national radio show on Thursday.  Nasa rarely comments on wild conspiracy theories, and the agency's statement comes just days after a rumour surfaced that it was soon to announce the discovery of alien life.  A spokesperson of  Nasa Science Mission Directorate stated - ‘Are we alone in the universe? While we do not know yet, we have missions moving forward that may help answer that fundamental question.’
