According to an Ohio University Emeritus Professor who reviewed innumerable photos from Mars, “there has been and still is life on Mars.” Some of these living forms are plainly evident in photographs returned from Mars.

Emeritus Professor William Romoser of Ohio University opted to investigate and evaluate a collection of images obtained from the surface of Mars by several NASA rovers. Following a detailed examination of the photographic material collected from the surface, the researcher concluded that the data could possibly lead to the presence of life on Mars’ surface.
According to a release from the University of Ohio, the Emeritus professor claimed that some of the photographs appear to depict insect-like and reptile-like shapes, indicating that life exists on Mars.
Life on Mars
According to the Ohio entomologist, we already have more than enough evidence to demonstrate the existence of life on Mars, and we can thank NASA‘s rovers on the red planet for that.
This unexpected revelation comes from an arbovirology and general/medical entomology specialist.
Dr. Romoser has spent years examining photos from Mars, which are freely available on NASA’s website.
During his quest, he discovered evidence of a variety of insect-like lifeforms that appear to be related to bees. He also claims to have discovered reptile-like forms in the form of fossils and living species.
“There has been and still is life on Mars,” Romoser claimed in an essay that Ohio University has since removed, adding that the photographs appear to depict both fossilized and living animals.
“There is obvious diversity among the Martian insect-like fauna, which exhibit several properties comparable to Terran insects that are viewed as advanced groupings, such as the presence of wings, wing bending, swift gliding/flight, and variably formed leg parts.”
Although scientists continue to argue that no conclusive evidence of life on Mars has been found, Professor Dr. Romoser claims that NASA’s rovers, particularly Curiosity, have taken a number of photographs of the Martian surface “where arthropod body segments, legs, antennae, and wings can be picked out from the surrounding area.”
One of the photographs appears to show insects in a steep dive, just before pulling up and avoiding contact with the ground.
Dr. Romoser said that the photos of Mars were thoroughly examined while photography characteristics such as brightness, contrast, saturation, inversion, and so on were changed.
According to the researcher, no content was added or taken from the photographs, and they were all published in the same way in the study.
Dr. Romoser employed the following criteria to detect anomalies on Mars: “dramatic departure from the surroundings, clarity of form, bodily symmetry, segmentation of body parts, recurring shape, skeletal remnants, and observation of forms in close proximity to one another.” Particular postures, evidence of motion, flight, apparent contact as indicated by relative locations, and shining eyes were seen as consistent with the existence of live forms.”
The entomologist from Ohio University goes on to say that different flying patterns can be seen in several of the photos from Mars. The creatures he says he has identified resemble bumblebees and carpenter bees, both of which are found on Earth.
Some of the photographs from Mars appear to show insects departing their cave shelters or nests. According to the specialist, there are photos of fossilized organisms that resemble snakes.
“Once a clear image of a specific form was found and characterized,” Romoser explained, “it proved valuable in easing recognition of additional less clear, but still valid, representations of the same basic form.”
“An exoskeleton and jointed appendages are sufficient to identify an arthropod.” Three bodily areas, one, a pair of antennae and six legs are generally enough to identify an insect. These traits should also be sufficient to identify an insect-like life on Mars. “Arthropod, insect-like creatures can be spotted on these bases in Mars rover photographs,” the entomologist noted.
UFO investigators and alien enthusiasts have sifted through innumerable photos taken on Mars in quest of alien evidence. Some of them, like this one, are truly rather convincing.
Aside from extraterrestrial hunters, scientists have made assertions concerning Mars, claiming that there is life there.
Gilbert V. Levin, for example, was the chief investigator of an experiment on NASA’s Viking expedition to Mars. Mr. Levin claims that NASA discovered proof of alien life on Mars in the 1970s.
