Alien hunters claim to have found “mechanical devices” on Mars which are “clear indications” that intelligent extraterrestrials live, or lived, there. While browsing NASA images, eagle-eyed conspiracy theorists spotted two strange objects in the dusty terrain. One of the objects looks like a jar which has fallen on its side, but the object also looks as if it has machinery on it. Another of the objects looks similar to a radiator.
Prominent alien hunter Scott C Waring wrote on the blog ET Database: “Here are some cool ancient alien artefacts. The objects are clear indications that intelligent beings once thrived on this planet.
“One of the objects has a jar shape, but is fallen over on its side. It not a jar of course, its clear that its more high tech than that with all its pipes and tubes moving down its side.
“It looks very similar to a lot of jars seen recored from old roman digs. The other object has a lot layers and was obviously some kind of mechanical device.”
Another recent finding was that of a large black rock which was supposedly such strong evidence of alien life that NASA was accused of misleading the public.
Mr Waring wrote on his blog: “While looking at the front page of the Mars Science Laboratory website, I noticed that they placed a photo with a huge black fossil right on the freaking front page!
“How could anyone who has any experience at ancient fossils and artefacts have even possibly have missed that?”
However, sceptics and NASA would say the object and other similar findings are just the effects of pareidolia – a psychological phenomenon when the brain tricks the eyes into seeing familiar objects or shapes in patterns or textures such as a rock surface.
This would mean that the Martian ‘artefacts’ are likely just misshapen rocks
NASA’s Curiosity Rover has been exploring Mars since it landed inside the Red Planet’s Gale Crater in August 2012. The NASA Mars rover has since then covered 12.99 miles (20.91km) for its primary objective to identify biosignatures of basic molecular life. But an intelligent alien life conspiracy theorist now believes Curiosity has uncovered conclusive photographic proof that technologically advanced alien life once existed on Mars.
Whatsupinthesky27 Youtube channel’s presenter Will claims to have discovered an object resembling part of a statue amongst the desolate Martian landscape.
He said: “What makes this really interesting is you have a connecting block resembling a Rubik’s Cube to its top left.”
He goes on to speculate his latest “find” is yet more evidence of ancient, possibly now extinct, alien activity on Mars.
He said: “Mars got destroyed by something. Some people say it was an interplanetary war, others say it was an asteroid. But something jacked it-up.
“This was definitely an area which had water.
“Obviously we know something was on Mars and the Moon.”
Well-known UFO conspiracy theorist Scott Waring hosted the video on his popular etdatabase.com site.
And Mr Waring shares Whatsupinthesky27’s outlandish interpretation for the rock-shaped anomaly.
He wrote: “The object is a clear indication intelligent beings once thrived on this planet.
“One of the objects has a jar shape that has fallen on its side.
“It not a jar of course, its clear that its more high tech than that with all its pipes and tubes moving down its side.
“It has a lot layers and was obviously some kind of mechanical device.”
Along with pointing out the oddly-shaped anomaly among the Red Planet’s rubble, Whatsupinthesky27 also critiques the apparent blurring of areas in this image and others on Mars.
The YouTube presenter said: “They don’t seem to be here for any reason at all, other than either NASA put them there or Curiosity’s camera just can’t deal with them.
“I have always said, any time you get these straight blur lines, the images appear to have been doctored.
“Every time we see these blur marks, it upsets me, because who knows what was there?
“Squaring off the blocks just doesn’t make any sense to me, unless it occurs automatically.”
One Youtuber discovered what looks like a strange circle in the middle of a Nevada desert, leading to theories that it is a UFO located inside the top secret military base. Area 51 – a high security US military post – has long been associated with alien activity, and this discovery will not do anything to dampen that conspiracy theory. In the video, uploaded by channel TheLifeBeyondEarth, the narrator gives the coordinates as 37°18’20.41”N 116°28’21.13”W.
Those coordinates when placed on Google Earth take one to a spot in a desert in Nevada where a white circle can be seen.
Popular conspiracy theorist Scott C Waring believes the location is inside top-secret military base Area 51.
Mr Waring wrote on his blog UFO Sightings Daily: “Using Google Ruler we see that the UFO is 31.36 feet across or 9.5 meters. Its shadow is 8.15 meters across or 27.8 feet across.
“The UFO is 36.17 miles (58.22 km) from Area 51.
“The area where this UFO is hovering at is all part of Area 51 which covers hundreds of square miles. I checked out the UFOs on Google earth and they are there.”
However, many people commented saying that they were not buying into Mr Waring’s theory.
Youtuber VWman100 said: “If you look at the images on Google Earth, and scroll through times and years, they’re still there, so it’s obviously fake or some kind of structure.”
Ted Richards loves parrots.
In fact, the resident of Bristol, U.K., is so batty for the birds that he has gone through extensive and extreme body modification surgery to look like them.
First, the self-described “Parrotman” had his face tattooed to look like he has feathers in the five colors of his parrots.
Then he risked going blind by having his eyes colored with tattoo ink.
After that, he had his ears cut off ― a process that helped him better resemble the birds but impaired his hearing, according to an episode of “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!” that aired on Sunday night on the Travel Channel.
“Parrots only got little holes anyways, so I had them cut off,” he said in the preview clip above. “You know, it’s your body at the end of the day. You should be able to do whatever you want with it.”
Richards, who professionally goes by the name “Ted Parrotman,” admits he didn’t let the risks stop him from altering his body.
“I didn’t think about the complications, you know? I just never thought about that. Because if you looked at negative all the time, you’d never do anything,” he said.
You can see how extreme Richards’ love for birds goes in the clip above.

Malaysia Airlines flight 370 went missing on March 8, 2014, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. What exactly happened to the jetliner remains a mystery, but communications with a satellite called 3F1 give some clues. For example, the communications with 3F1 show that the satellite data unit (SDU) was initially turned off and then turned on again.
Jeff Wise, author of the 2015 book ‘The Plane That Wasn’t There’, claimed hijackers may have been using the SDU to send out fake data.
British telecommunications company Inmarsat used Burst Frequency Offset (BFO) and Burst Timing Offset (BTO) values to work out where the plane went after it disappeared from air traffic control radar.
BTO is a measure of the time taken for a transmission round trip and can be used to calculate the distance between the satellite and the aircraft.
Meanwhile, BFO data is a measure of the relative motion of the satellite and the aeroplane.
Combined, these can be used to piece together an estimated track of the plane.
The data seems to indicate that the plane flew out over the Indian Ocean before crashing into the sea west of Australia.
However, there are certain discrepancies in MH370’s case that mean these values are somewhat contradictory.
Mr Wise suggested that the BFO data could be a “false trail of breadcrumbs” used to put investigators off the scent.
He said: “This is a classic con artist technique – when you pull a ruse on a victim you can’t just walk away, you have to make sure they don’t come after you.”
He used an example from World War 2 when British intelligence carried out Operation Mincemeat – the body of a British officer washed up on the Spanish coast and on his person there were secrets about a planned assault from north Africa.
Documents on the body indicated the assault would be on Sardinia instead of Sicily.
The authenticity of the body, the clothes, the personal possessions and documents on the corpse led the Germans to believe it was real and moved forces to Sardinia.
However, it had been a ruse all along and the real invasion was in Sicily.
Similarly, if hijackers could make MH370 as inconspicuous as possible by providing fake data, it could slip away unnoticed.
Mr Wise said: “Given the oddities surrounding the case, MH370 may represent a deception crafted at the same level of complexity.
“For this plan to work out however, a very specific set of criteria would have to be met.
“As we’ve seen, the hijacked plane would have to be Boeing not an Airbus and it would have to be equipped with a Honeywell SDU not a Rockwell Collins one.
“What’s more, in order for the BFO spoof to clearly imply that the plane was traveling in the opposite of its true direction the flight would have to start close to the equator and the implied direction would have to be towards an oceanic basin in which the plane could we lost.
“MH370 of course met all these criteria.”
There was just one flaw in the plan: Inmarsat was also collecting BTO values that contradict with the BFO values and ultimately gave a more accurate indication as to the flight path of the plane.
However, this is just one theory and not one currently endorsed by the official investigation.
Malaysia Airlines flight 370 went missing on March 8, 2014, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. It is still unclear what exactly happened to the plane and those on board, but a crucial data clue was only made possible by a previous investigation. This investigation was the disappearance of Air France flight 447, which vanished on June 1, 2009 en route from Rio de Janeiro to Paris.
AF447 was eventually found to have crashed into the Atlantic Ocean killing 228 people.
In his 2015 book ‘The Plane That Wasn’t There’, science journalist and aviation expert Jeff Wise explained that lessons were learned from AF447 to “make sure nothing like it ever happened again”.
It was as a result of the 2009 tragedy that satellite telecommunications company Inmarsat started recording Burst Timing Offset (BTO) values, which ended up being central to the MH370 investigation.
The hardware for this was installed just a year before MH370 disappeared.
Along with Burst Frequency Offset (BFO) values, the BTO values allowed investigators to map out a route of MH370 over the Indian Ocean.
Mr Wise wrote: “It’s no understatement to say that if Air France 447 hadn’t happened, we wouldn’t have any pings today for MH370.”
These ‘pings’ are communications between MH370 and Inmarsat’s satellite 3F1.
On the other hand, there is a chance that hijackers may have also learned from the first disaster.
Mr Wise said: “As the search for MH370 unfolded however, I wondered if the case of the missing French jetliner might have supplied negative as well as positive inspiration.
“What if – I wondered – someone had taken Air France 447 as a lesson in how to make other airliners disappear?”
This might explain why there are so many “uncanny” similarities between the two plane catastrophes.
Mr Wise explained: “In both cases, the planes vanished after venturing beyond the range of land-based radar in the middle of the night.
“And in both cases air traffic control were late in realising that something untoward had happened, because their screens continued to display the aircraft symbol as if everything were normal.”
The main difference between the two incidents is that AF447 was eventually found.
The aircraft had been sending regular maintenance update to Air France HQ, which included GPS data.
This meant the airline company could track the exact location of its aeroplane when it disappeared.
The black boxes were eventually retrieved after around two years.
The BTO and BFO data seem to indicate that MH370 crashed into the southern Indian Ocean.
While a wreckage has yet to be discovered, this remains the most likely scenario.
If a future expedition proves successful, it will have been down to this satellite data.
