Mars Attacks everything!

marsThe exploration of Mars seems to have raised more questions than answers. The latest gathering Martian storm, that may engulf both planets, comes from geological evidence that seems to blow apart all scientific theories to do with the formation of planets, our solar system and geology.

Is Mars, the planet and god of war, about to attack science and everything we think we know and understand? Mars Attacks!

The dilemma has been building for years: Evidence about factors that affect surface temperatures – mainly the energy received from the young sun and the blanketing provided by the planet’s atmosphere – adds up to a mismatch with widespread evidence for river networks and lakes on ancient Mars.

Clues such as isotope ratios in today’s Martian atmosphere indicate the planet once held a much denser atmosphere than it does now. Yet theoretical models of the ancient Martian climate struggle to produce conditions that would allow liquid water on the Martian surface for many millions of years.

mars bedrock lake water
The Curiosity rover has not discovered any carbonate minerals in large enough detectable amounts, in what geologists describe as ancient lake bedrock. Meaning that there was insignificant carbon dioxide in Mars atmosphere at the time, they suggest 3.5 billion years ago.

When this is combined with the faint young sun paradox it is a real puzzle and seems to destroy the scientific mathematical computer models and explanations.

We’ve been particularly struck with the absence of carbonate minerals in sedimentary rock the rover has examined, said Thomas Bristow of NASA’s Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, California. It would be really hard to get liquid water even if there were a hundred times more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere than what the mineral evidence in the rock tells us …

For the past two decades, researchers have used spectrometers on Mars orbiters to search for carbonate that could have resulted from an early era of more abundant carbon dioxide. They have found far less than anticipated.

It’s been a mystery why there hasn’t been much carbonate seen from orbit, Bristow said. You could get out of the quandary by saying the carbonates may still be there, but we just can’t see them from orbit because they’re covered by dust, or buried, or we’re not looking in the right place. The Curiosity results bring the paradox to a focus. This is the first time we’ve checked for carbonates on the ground in a rock we know formed from sediments deposited under water.

Mars Attacks geology and … everything?

Could geomorphology, the explanation of geology everywhere else in our solar system and the universe based on our planet’s environment and especially water erosion and features, be wrong? Why we find geological features on all other space bodies that are totally confusing and mostly reasonably unexplainable? Such as water erosion features on the asteroid Vesta?

Could Mars have suffered a massive planetary wide catastrophe, or a series of catastrophic events, as suggested by some comparative mythology investigators?

Which would help to explain its rock shattered look and the Valles Marinius, Martian meteorites still landing on planet Earth, Mars sand on our globe?
