‘I saw men walking on Mars in 1979’: ‘Former Nasa employee’ claims there was a secret manned mission to the red planet
Woman, named ‘Jackie’, called in to US radio station, Coast to Coast AM
Jackie said she was downloading telemetry from a Nasa Viking Lander
She claims that’s when she saw two humans walking on Martian surface
According to Jackie, six other Nasa employees witnessed the same thing
Conspiracy theorists say this is evidence of a ‘secret space programme.
Conspiracy theory forums and websites have been set a blaze after a women that claims to be a former NASA employee said that she had seen humans on Mars.
The women who was named ‘Jackie’ called in to the radio station Coast to Coast AM, with a supposed confession that she had witnessed suited men running on the red planet in 1979.
Jackie claims to of been working as part of a ‘downstairs’ team downloading telemetry from a viking lander when she saw the humans by live feed.
Nasa has not responded or corroborated to the claims but this has not stopped conspiracy theorists from claiming it as evidence for a secret space programme and withholding of knowledge of life out in our solar system and beyond.
Jackie said ‘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 Viking Mars mission was performed by two spacecraft, Viking 1 and Viking 2, launched within a couple of weeks of each other in the 1970s.
The orbiters continued imaging and, between Viking 1 and Viking 2, imaged the entire planet at what was then high resolution.
‘Although no traces of life were found, Viking found all elements essential to life on Earth – carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen and phosphorus – were present on Mars,’ said Nasa.
There are, however discrepancies in ‘Jackie’s story on the recollections of technology used at that time and some of her testament was positively hazy interviewers claim. It’s almost impossible to find out whether ‘Jackie’s claims are true or not and even if she ever worked for NASA as she remained anonymous. One things for sure, there’s something going on and it’s up to you to deicide what. After claims that NASA cut live feed earlier in 2015, there has been speculation for quite sometime now among conspiracists that NASA is hiding alien life and secret missions and projects from the rest of the world and maybe this story is just another spec of evidence to suggest this.
