An ex-NASA employee has insisted that humans walked on the surface of Mars more than 35 years ago.
The remarkable claim comes courtesy of a woman known only as 'Jackie' who called in to the US radio show Coast to Coast AM to reveal that she had witnessed a live feed showing space-suited humans on Mars all the way back in 1979.
The woman maintained that she had been working on the downlink telemetry from the original Viking lander on Mars when two men in space suits appeared on the feed walking towards the spacecraft.
"I saw two men in space suits - not the bulky suits we normally used, but they looked protective," she said. "They came over the horizon walking to the Viking Explorer."
When she and her team went to report what they'd witnessed to their superiors however they were refused an audience and nothing more was ever mentioned about the incident.
"We ran upstairs - but they locked the door, and taped paper over the door so we couldn’t see," she said. "My question is - were they our guys?’"
The woman's claims however have been met with an extremely high degree of skepticism, not least because the Viking lander didn't even have a video feed as she has suggested.
For all intents and purposes her story appears to be little more than a hoax.
