Scientist sues NASA over alien life on Mars

Rhawn Joseph is taking legal action on the basis that NASA isn't doing enough to investigate alien life.
The author and researcher has filed the unusual lawsuit because he doesn't believe that NASA is doing everything possible to investigate potential signs of extraterrestrial life on Mars.

Joseph's main argument centers around the recent photographs taken by the Opportunity rover that show a strange rock appearing on the ground between shots. At the time, NASA scientists concluded that the rock had been kicked in to frame by the rover's wheels, but Joseph maintains that there is something more to it and believes NASA should have conducted a more thorough investigation.

"The refusal to take close up photos from various angles... to take microscopic images of the specimen... to release high resolution photos, is inexplicable, recklessly negligent, and bizarre," he wrote.

NASA has yet to comment on the lawsuit.

'Have you ruled out Martian rock throwers?' William Shatner joins calls for Nasa to investigate 'alien doughnut' on Mars and midway down that page... "Popular Science reports that Joseph has blasted the rock theory, since his examination found 'the same structure in miniature was clearly visible upon magnification and appears to have just germinated from spores'. In other words, it grew there. The suit adds: 'The refusal to take close up photos from various angles, the refusal to take microscopic images of the specimen, the refusal to release high resolution ph... [More]

Very normal, from Apollo's sighting in the moon to sightings here on earth they just neglect it and even covering up, why what is the government is doing?

? What "Apollo sighting in the moon"? Who is neglecting or covering up what? NASA has posted images of this bizarre rock, and has already undertaken scientific examination of it. If that's a case of neglect or cover-up it's a very odd version.

Just because people believe doesn't effect how the government is going to react too it. The government wants order and peace, thay want people to not have to worry. They want us To be a small peice in an "economic board game." Eat, sleep, shop, work, reproduce, get married and keep spending. If they could think of any way the news would effect there "game" they would stop that news from ever reaching us. Everything is based around money. As president you make 400,000 a year I do belive and candidates pay millions of there own money just to fund the campaign to work a jo... [More]

erm the Brookings Report was from the 60's, so was hippies, star trek and chopper bikes! Things change, specially attitudes and beliefs, whatever whoever may have thought back in the 60's is hardly relevant to today's people. The Vatican's astronomers went on record as saying 'they believe there could be ET out there' what happened? Did religion collapse? Did society collapse? Was there mass panic BIG FAT NO! Nothing changed at all...

Yeah. It grew there and dislodged a trail of pebbles leading back to the Rover doing so. If NASA wanted to cover it up, they'd have never announced anything about it. They would never have announced the chemical makeup they found.
