Mysterious Mars.
#1
This article is very informative about Mars. Yes Mars more than likely has a Large Body of Water deep beneath the surface and then how about a Very Magnetic Surface and More!

Quote:Mysterious magnetic pulses discovered on Mars

Wait,,, Magnetic Pulses???? How is that possible? mars is a Dead Barren Planet!!
Quote:AT MIDNIGHT ON Mars, the red planet’s magnetic field sometimes starts to pulsate in ways that have never before been observed. The cause is currently unknown
But, But, But,,,,, were we not taught Mars had a Nearly Non-Existent Magnetic Field?
 
Quote:That’s just one of the stunning preliminary findings from NASA’s very first robotic geophysicist there, the InSight lander. Since touching down in November 2018, this spacecraft has been gathering intel to help scientists better understand our neighboring planet’s innards and evolution, such as taking the temperature of its upper crust, recording the sounds of alien quakes, and measuring the strength and direction of the planet’s magnetic field.
I was under the impression to have Quakes, you needed to have Plates Moving Under and Over each other because of a Molten Core Melting Rocks and Rotating and Moving.
You also need a Iron Molten Core Rotating to have a Magnetic Field,,,,,, Am I Wrong?
I guess I could be, but we have always been told, Mars has no Molten Core.
AWWWWWWW, My World Has Ended!!!! smalltappinghead  Mars may be Very Much like Earth!!  tinywhat 


Quote:In addition to the odd magnetic pulsations, the lander’s data show that the Martian crust is far more powerfully magnetic than scientists expected.
What’s more, the lander has picked up on a very peculiar electrically conductive layer, about 2.5 miles thick, deep beneath the planet’s surface.
It’s far too early to say with any certainty, but there is a chance that this layer could represent a global reservoir of liquid water.
  
What do they mean,,,,,,,,,, Electrical Conductive Layer??
High Speed Electric Trains running under the Martian Surface,,,, A Inner Mars Civilization?? 
Quote:Earth has a major global magnetic field thanks to its rotation and churning, iron-rich, liquid outer core.

We know that this field has been around for a while and that it has shifted about fairly dramatically across geological epochs, based on natural records of its strength and direction trapped in specific minerals within the crust.

The history of Mars’s magnetic field is similarly archived in its crust, as scientists learned in 1997 thanks to data from the Mars Global Surveyor orbiter.
So, Mars does have a Magnetic Field.


Quote:“The same zoo of magnetic minerals that exist on Earth exist on Mars,” says Robert Lillis, a planetary space physicist at the University of California, Berkeley, who wasn’t involved with the new research.
OK!  minusculebiggrin  That could mean Life,,, right?

Quote:The orbiter detected the red planet’s magnetism from 60 to 250 miles above the surface, and it found that the crustal magnetic field is ten times stronger than Earth’s is when measured from the same height above the surface.
This suggests that, once upon a time, Mars also had a major global magnetic field.

Unlike Earth, though, Mars got unlucky. Around four billion years ago, its convulsing outer core appears to have seized up, causing a collapse in its global magnetic field.

Left with a weak magnetic shield to defend itself, an outpouring of radiation from the sun—known as the solar wind—gradually stripped away much of its ancient atmosphere, turning a potentially life-supporting, water-rich world into a cold desert.

Ok, enough of this BulShit.
Sounds like they are saying, Mars has a Magnetic Field and it is at some point, Stronger Than Earths,,, But some time in the Past, the Molten Core Stopped or something and for a while allowed Mars to Cook from the Sun's Radiation.

But now Mars has a Strong Field again.
So,,,, I think there is life inside or on Mars, What Do YOU Think?
Once A Rogue, Always A Rogue!

@guohua. No problems, I've just simply moved the article to here!


Quote:Mysterious magnetic pulses discovered on Mars.

The nighttime events are among initial results from the InSight lander, which also found hints that the
red planet may host a global reservoir of liquid water deep below the surface.

'At midnight on Mars, the red planet’s magnetic field sometimes starts to pulsate in ways that have never before
been observed. The cause is currently unknown.

That’s just one of the stunning preliminary findings from NASA’s very first robotic geophysicist there, the InSight lander.
Since touching down in November 2018, this spacecraft has been gathering intel to help scientists better understand
our neighbouring planet’s innards and evolution, such as taking the temperature of its upper crust, recording the sounds
of alien quakes, and measuring the strength and direction of the planet’s magnetic field.

As revealed during a handful of presentations this week at a joint meeting of the European Planetary Science Congress
and the American Astronomical Society, the early data suggest the magnetic machinations of Mars are marvelously mad.

In addition to the odd magnetic pulsations, the lander’s data show that the Martian crust is far more powerfully magnetic
than scientists expected. What’s more, the lander has picked up on a very peculiar electrically conductive layer, about 2.5
miles thick, deep beneath the planet’s surface.
It’s far too early to say with any certainty, but there is a chance that this layer could represent a global reservoir of liquid water.

On Earth, groundwater is a hidden sea locked up in sand, soil, and rocks. If something similar is found on Mars, then “we
shouldn’t be surprised,” says Jani Radebaugh, a planetary scientist at Brigham Young University who was not involved with
the work.

But if these results bear out, a liquid region at this scale on modern Mars has enormous implications for the potential for life,
past or present. (Get the facts about previous evidence for an underground lake on Mars.)

So far, none of these data have been through peer review, and details about the initial findings and interpretations will
undoubtedly be tweaked over time. Still, the revelations provide a stunning showcase for InSight, a robot that has the
potential to revolutionize our comprehension of Mars and other rocky worlds across the galaxy.

“We’re getting an insight into Mars’s magnetic history in a way we’ve never had before,” says Paul Byrne, a planetary geologist
at North Carolina State University who was not involved with the work.

A tale of two worlds
Earth has a major global magnetic field thanks to its rotation and churning, iron-rich, liquid outer core.
We know that this field has been around for a while and that it has shifted about fairly dramatically across geological epochs,
based on natural records of its strength and direction trapped in specific minerals within the crust. The history of Mars’s
magnetic field is similarly archived in its crust, as scientists learned in 1997 thanks to data from the Mars Global Surveyor
orbiter.

“The same zoo of magnetic minerals that exist on Earth exist on Mars,” says Robert Lillis, a planetary space physicist at the
University of California, Berkeley, who wasn’t involved with the new research.

The orbiter detected the red planet’s magnetism from 60 to 250 miles above the surface, and it found that the crustal magnetic
field is ten times stronger than Earth’s is when measured from the same height above the surface. This suggests that, once
upon a time, Mars also had a major global magnetic field.

Unlike Earth, though, Mars got unlucky. Around four billion years ago, its convulsing outer core appears to have seized up,
causing a collapse in its global magnetic field. Left with a weak magnetic shield to defend itself, an outpouring of radiation
from the sun—known as the solar wind—gradually stripped away much of its ancient atmosphere, turning a potentially
life-supporting, water-rich world into a cold desert.

Grasping why these two planets had such different fates requires the best possible measurements of Mars’ magnetic ghosts,
but from orbit, the strength of this remnant magnetic field has poor resolution. It’s like looking at a crowd of people from far
away: If many are wearing red shirts and a few are wearing blue, a camera at a distance will largely register the preponderance
of red. But get close with the same camera, and those all-important blue hues will be more clearly seen.

“The same is true for magnetic measurements,” says Dave Brain, a researcher of atmospheric and space physics from the
University of Colorado not involved with the work. “The closer you get, the more structure you are able to pick out.”

Mysteries at midnight
InSight’s magnetometer, the first placed on the Martian surface, gave scientists their best look yet at the crustal magnetic
field, and it gave them a bit of a shock: The magnetic field near the robot was around 20 times stronger than what had been
predicted based on past orbital measurements.

Brain, who is familiar with the InSight data, says that this strong, stable magnetic signal is coming from rocks near InSight,
but whether they are deep underground or nearer to the surface is currently unclear. That identification matters, Byrne says,
because if it’s coming from younger rocks near the surface, it would imply that a strong magnetic field persisted around
Mars for longer than we currently think.

Perhaps even more puzzling, InSight also found that the crustal magnetic field near its location jiggled about every now and
then. This wobbling is known as a magnetic pulsation, explains Matthew Fillingim, a space physicist at the University of
California, Berkeley, and a member of the InSight science team.

These pulses are fluctuations in the strength or direction of the magnetic field, and they are not entirely unusual.
Plenty of them happen on Earth and Mars triggered by upper atmospheric chaos, the action of the solar wind, and kinks in
the planets’ magnetic bubbles, among other things.

What’s strange is that these Martian wobbles happen at local midnight, as if responding to the demands of an unseen, nocturnal
timer.

InSight is near Mars’ equator, and in the same geographic position on Earth, at that time of night, you don’t see these types of
magnetic pulsations. Night-time pulsations on Earth tend to happen at higher latitudes and are linked to the northern and southern
lights. Right now, the ones on Mars have no clear source, but scientists have at least one suspect in mind.

Although it no longer has a potent global magnetic field, Mars is surrounded by a weak magnetic bubble created as the solar wind
interacts with its thin atmosphere. This bubble is in turn compressed by the solar wind’s magnetic field, causing part of the bubble
to take on a tail-like shape.
At midnight, InSight’s spot on Mars is aligned with this tail, and as it passes through, the tail may be plucking the surface magnetic
field like a guitar string.

If a high-altitude spacecraft, like NASA’s Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution, or MAVEN, orbiter, can swing above InSight at
just the right time, it might show this to be the case. For now, though, it’s a puzzle without an answer.

Making a splash
During one of the presentations about Mars’ magnetism, scientists also mentioned that features in the magnetic signals appear to
be registering an electrically conductive layer somewhere beneath the Martian surface. While the team can’t yet pinpoint an exact
depth, they think it wouldn’t be any deeper than 62 miles.

Tests in deserts on Earth have shown how magnetometers are able to tell you whether there is water at depth, Brain explains.
The same applies to InSight’s magnetometer, and it is possible that the layer it spotted is an aquifer of water with dissolved solids,
or an ice and water layer, that could stretch around the entire planet.

It’s unclear how long bodies of surface water persisted in lakes, rivers, and even oceans in Mars’ past, but there is some evidence
that the subsurface contains briny reservoirs today. Mars’s crust also gets warmer as you go deeper, Radebaugh says.
And given the strong evidence for widespread ground ice on Mars, it is reasonable to think that subterranean aquifers of liquid water
exist, too.

But the devil is in the details, and all other causes of such a signal still need to be ruled out, Brain says. The InSight lander has a drill,
but it can only dig down about 16 feet below the surface, so scientists may have to find other ways—perhaps via future Mars missions
—to test the watery layer theory.

Whether this Martian aquifer’s existence is ultimately verified or rebuffed, Brain adds, the invaluable nature of InSight’s measurements,
including its magnetic ones, is already clear. Even rooted to a single spot in Elysium Planitia, this robotic emissary is beginning to
dig up all kinds of buried Martian marvels...'

If what the whistle-blowers say is true, then, yes, there is life on Mars; and it's not just microorganisms. SSP insiders say there is an alien race that lives there, the Mantis race, I believe it is.  Also, there are humans who were taken years ago to make sure our race continues should a nuclear war destroy life on Earth.

President Trump must know more than he's saying, otherwise why is he ready to send us to Mars?
