The NASA conspiracy theory October 28, 2010

Posted by Simon in Uncategorized.

Here’s fairly nutty view on the life-on-Mars controversy: Chandra Wickramasinghe from the University of Cardiff claims that NASA has evidence for life on Mars, but they’re hiding it.

Phil Plait at Bad Astronomy gets into the details of some other nutty Wickramasinghe claims, and why this one in particular just doesn’t make sense. If you want to learn more about Wickramasinghe’s claims about extraterrestrial life in the Indian red rain incident, check out Rocco Mancinelli’s talk at Stanford (the red rain discussion is at the end, at about the 1:05 mark), where he dissects Wickramasinghe’s published paper.
