Blogging From Mars

Today I am with sci fi and fantasy author Damien Larkin from Dublin, Ireland. His blog: Mars Occupation Force – Press Office: He often features writer interviews. Today I am discussing The Choctaw, the Cherokee’s friends and neighbors. Please join us, maybe even learn a thing or two and have some fun. (I also discuss Stone Man and the Trail of Tears, which will be released October 8)

Amazonis Planitia: the photo with craters. Ancient lava flows.

Life on Mars Shocker!

NASA’s Curiosity Rover has recently detected high levels of methane gas! (telescopes have also detected methane) The main component of swamp gas is methane, which is produced by decaying living matter. (methane can be produced by inorganic means, too)

Join the Mars watch! We will not let Martians take us by surprise!

DUST DEVILS? MARS INVASION?

NASA’s InSight landed on Mars November 26, 2018 at a lava plain called Elysium Planitia. Though they are still testing it, it has recorded the first audio of Martian winds. Some of InSight’s equipment has been affected by something NASA engineers call a Dust Devil.

Sorry—no photos of the Dust Devils. Could Dust Devils invade Earth? Stay tuned. Be vigilant.

Today, Mars is perilously close to Earth (a scant 34 million miles away). 2018 is a close year for Mars. It hasn’t been this close in 60,000 years & won’t be this close again for 269 years. This is an excellent time for a Martian invasion.

Be on the lookout for red flying saucers & little green men with antennae & bug eyes. (Women, too, but they all look the same to me) Do not PANIC. Just run for your life.

I am sending this from my underground bunker at an undisclosed location.

The European Space Agency’s Mars Express used radar to locate liquid water below the ice of the Southern Polar Ice Cap. About 12 miles across, the lake is probably a brine of sodium, magnesium, and calcium. Be sure to wear warm clothes and take along a little oxygen.

Meet you there!

Wait a minute—Antarctica has similar lakes with microbial life present! We may soon find life on Mars!

Hey, I think I see a Martian. Will he let me write about him?

Organic molecules were found on Mars! Methane gas was discovered by Curiosity Rover. It also drilled ancient rocks & found thiophenes, benzene, toluene, and small carbon chains, such as propane or butane. This is not proof of life, but it suggests the possibility of life now & or long ago.

(okay, my warning was premature, but better safe than sorry)

I have written about Mars, and I just mat do it again!
