Mushrooms grow on Mars

(ORDO NEWS) — Scientists believe that these photos depict mushrooms on Mars and this is 100% proof of the existence of alien life.

Could there be mushrooms on Mars? In the new work, an international team of scientists from the United States, France and China collected and compared photographs that, in their opinion, indicate the growth of mushroom-like objects on the Red Planet.

In their paper, published in Advances in Microbiology by Scientific Research Publishing, scientists analyze images taken by NASA’s Opportunity and Curiosity rovers, as well as the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter HiRISE camera. The images show “chalky-white spherical specimens,” which the Mars Opportunity team originally named a mineral called hematite.

Later studies refuted the claim about hematite. Soon, some scientists coined the term “Martian mushrooms” to describe mysterious objects because they resemble lichens and mushrooms, and in another study, experts on mushrooms and lichens classified the spheres as “plump balls” – a white globular mushroom belonging to the phylum Basidiomycota found on Earth …

In the new work, scientists point to a set of photographs of Opportunity, which show nine spheres increase in size, and 12 more spheres emerge from under the soil within three days. The researchers argue that the Martian wind did not open up the amorphous spheres, and that they “grow in size or, conversely, change shape, move to new places, and / or shrink and almost disappear.”

“Many of these terrestrial globular specimens also have stems or have shed some of their outer membrane – possibly crusting – and are surrounded by white lumps and fluffy spore-like material that may consist of leprosy.”

Corkosis and leprosy are types of surface textures of the fungus where crust or scales form that can flake off.

The presence of these peripheral parts is important, scientists say, because it helps them prove that what we see is indeed a mushroom and not just ball-shaped stones. Mushrooms grow and multiply – this is one of the defining characteristics of the entire family of mushrooms. Small mushrooms grow in about a day, while large mushrooms take up to 4 days.

In their research, scientists carefully document all the ways fungi change from one photo to another. “The white amorphous mass changes shape, location and almost completely disappears from within the crevice of the rock shelter within three days,” they explain one of the sets of images.

In addition to blowing away loose sand, mushrooms are one of the only living things that can experience such noticeable growth and change in just a few days.”

“Growth, movement, change in location and shape, behavior, combined with life-like morphology, strongly support the hypothesis of the existence of life on Mars.”
