Evidence of Extant Insect-Like Organisms on Mars + Supplemental Material
  • November 2020
  • DOI:
  • 10.13140/RG.2.2.23630.89924
  • Conference: This presentation was accepted as a poster and displayed on the Entomological Society of America site: Entomology 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting on Nov. 11 & 12. It was removed from the online meeting site, against my wishes, late on Nov. 12. I requested that it be put back up, but was refused.

Last year I presented a poster describing evidence of higher life forms in NASA/JPL rover photographs relayed to Earth from Mars. In this poster, I focus solely on evidence of extant insect-like organisms on Mars and include significant new material. Evidence to be presented supports the presence of extant insect-like ("insectoid") forms on Mars; the ability of these to walk, run, glide, and fly; the occurrence of sheltering/nesting behavior; and the presence of immature forms. Among the apparent diversity of organic forms that can be seen in the rover photos, there are two particularly common insect-like types, a relatively smaller "bee-like" (in the Earth sense) form, and a larger form. These are not necessarily insects in the Earth sense and do not necessarily represent discrete taxa, but within each group they are very similar. For convenience the Martian forms will be referred to as "bee-like insectoid" and "large insectoid". Critics of this research reject the possibility of higher life forms on Mars largely because, according to NASA, the conditions are simply too harsh to support higher life forms, and because NASA has not acknowledged their presence. Neither of these reasons should prevent an established scientist from presenting evidence to the contrary.

I have studied photographs transmitted to Earth from surface vehicles sent to Mars by NASAJPL, Curiosity Rover in particular. These photos are publicly available on the internet. My study began with casual curiosity, but eventually and unexpectedly, clear and consistent images became increasingly apparent. It became clear to me that the Mars rover photos contain images of metazoan life forms (insect In this rep ort I focus solely on extant insect-- and reptilelike) both as fossils and alive. like forms and provide evidence in support of the hypothesis that there are extant insectlike forms on Mars. General Earth criteria have been applied in order to reach the judgment of “insectlike”. insect anatomical These criteria include recognition of general insectan characteristics: a segmented exoskeleton, three body regions ( a head, thorax, and abdomen); one pair of antennae on the head, three pairs of jointed legs; and wings that articulate with one or more th oracic segments. Claims of anomalies in photographs transmitted from Mars are typically met with accusations of pareidolia, that is, seeing what one wishes to see or imagines they see, but really isn’t there. Though a valid concern, it is often misapplie d in a dismissive way. Consistent repetition of form down to relatively fine detail mitigates against the judgment of pareidolia as an explanation/criticism. Such is the case regarding the material in this report where the recognition of relatively fine supports the validity of the findings. Although a number of possibly different insectanatomical detail like types can be seen, two particularly common forms are the focus of this report. One is larger and roughly resembles a carpenter bee, at least in s ome postures, and a smaller type, more honey bee different specimens of each type are presented and analyzed.like in appearance. Several Evidence for the presence of higher metazoan organisms on Mars implies the presence of suitable physical environmental conditions as well as the biological complexities of food chains and webs operating in survivable, if extreme, ecological settings. Further, the evidence presented provides a compelling basis for more study and raises many important biological, social , and political questions.

The material analyzed in this report is from NASA-JPL photos sent back to Earth primarily by Curiosity Rover. Two earlier presentations [“Unidentified Aerial Phenomena on Mars” and “Additional Evidence for Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs; UFOs) on Mars & Possible Grounded Aerial Craft”] on this topic have become outdated in light of evidence of flying insect-like forms on Mars as presented in my poster at the 2019 meeting of the Entomological Society of America. Accordingly, I have merged the two earlier presentations and added material pertinent to the putative presence of flying insect-like life forms. Topics include: (1) Dark objects in contrast with the light sky. (2) Insect-like flying forms. (3) Insect-like Forms Caught in Flight Sequence. (4) An artificial structure on the ground? Grounded aircraft? (5) Mysterious glowing objects. Examples of spherical, disc-shaped, chevron-shaped, and triangular entities in the skies of Mars can be seen in contrast with the Martian sky. Evidence supports the idea that flying insect-like creatures are among these entities, and perhaps account for most of them. Two putatively artificial items are identified that could be vehicles, one ground-based and the other possibly aerial. The idea of artificial vehicles being present doesn’t seem unfeasible since NASA/JPL have accomplished placement of mechanical rovers on Mars. The presence of artificial vehicles is consistent with the idea of some sort of involvement of an advanced civilization.

This slide presentation is my response to the not unexpected negative press generated, in my now infamous poster presented at the annual meeting of the Entomological Society of America (ESA) on November 19, 2019, in St. Louis, MO.
