Methane On Mars (Keeps Increasing!)

  1. May 18, 2004 #1
    Every time a measurement is made – the methane level rises.

    Most people on this Forum think I’m a loon. I’m a loon that gets it right an awful lot of the time;
    From the below Physics link;

    “Anyone wanna take a guess?”

    I wrote;
    ”Groundwater (or Methane)”.

    Gee, I got BOTH right.

    Methane dismissed by “stooge” Vittorio Formisani (what a NASA MUPPET!);

    Clouds near Viking 2 Lander’s Landing Site;

    That MGS (MOC) image clears up nicely some of my “outstanding” claims from 1989 (that atmospheric water vapour, ie. Clouds, was detected by Viking 2 Lander).

    Viking 2 Lander Methane Detection on Mars (Buried for 27 Years)

    The following passage comes from page 190 of the book “Mars At Last!” by Mark Washburn, 1977.

    “Around JPL, there were rumours that methane had been found in the Martian atmosphere – a biologically produced gas. ‘The CIA is not involved in this,’ said Tobey Owen. ‘We didn’t see any methane.’”

    Well, they not only measured the methane, they BURIED the results.
    Denials that lasted 27 years, doesn’t make the truth any easier for “Scientists” who proclaim they seek truth.

    Jim Martin (Viking Project Leader) was on the payroll of the CIA.

    Or maybe they didn't measure any methane and the rumors are just that - rumors. Is this the strongest evidence you can find?

    Evidence? A quick google turns up no relevant results.

    A Quick Google Search??????????????????????????????

    A quick Google Search (you've got to be Sh**ing me).

    Since when has the CIA payroll been on the Internet?

    Saddam Hussein was also on the CIA payroll in the 80s, as was Manuel Noriega etc. etc.

    You've got to do some RESEARCH (NOT on the Internet, you monkey).

    Go back to bed...

    Ask Mr Owen, whether he said the remarks or not (HE DID).
    Ask Mr Martin about his military background etc. etc.
