Scientist sues NASA for withholding evidence of alien life on Mars

Rhawn Joseph is taking legal action on the basis that NASA isn't doing enough to investigate alien life. The author and researcher has filed the unusual lawsuit because he doesn't believe that NASA is doing everything possible to investigate potential signs of extraterrestrial life on Mars.

Joseph's main argument centers around the recent photographs taken by the Opportunity rover that show a strange rock appearing on the ground between shots [above]. At the time, NASA scientists concluded that the rock had been kicked in to frame by the rover's wheels, but Joseph maintains that there is something more to it and believes NASA should have conducted a more thorough investigation.

Here's the original announcement as it appeared in Al Jazeera news:

Scientists are baffled by a peculiar discovery made by NASA's Opportunity rover

January 22, 2014

Scientists are stumped as to how a rock resembling a jelly doughnut mysteriously appeared on the surface of Mars as if out of nowhere, as discovered by NASA's Opportunity rover.

The rover, which landed on Mars in 2004, took an image earlier this month of the peculiar rock, which was white around the outside and dark red in the middle. The rock was not present in earlier images of the same spot, located at the rim of Endeavour Crater.

Chief NASA scientist Steve Squyres has a likely explanation. He said in a presentation last week that one of Opportunity's wheels probably kicked up the rock, which then slid into its field of view.

Early testing of the "jelly" section of the rock revealed characteristics unlike any other rock the rover has discovered during its decade on Mars. The rock is high in sulfur and magnesium, and scientists are still trying to figure out why.

Either way, the rock, dubbed "Pinnacle Island," is providing an unexpected science bonus.

"Much of the rock is bright-toned, nearly white," NASA said in a statement on Tuesday. "A portion is deep red in color. Pinnacle Island may have been flipped upside-down when a wheel dislodged it, providing an unusual circumstance for examining the underside of a Martian rock."

Opportunity landed on Mars in January 2004 on what was intended to be a three-month mission, but the rover ended up outstaying its original mission and has explored the planet for 10 years.

Another rover, Curiosity, touched down on the opposite side of the Red Planet in 2012 to search for evidence of habitable environments in Mars' past.


According to Joseph:

"The refusal to take close up photos from various angles... to take microscopic images of the specimen... to release high resolution photos, is inexplicable, recklessly negligent, and bizarre."

NASA has yet to comment on the lawsuit.

Ken Pfeifer has been discovering strange objects on various planets and our own Moon. Below he describes (and shows) what he has found.

This is the perfect lead into my discoveries on Mars, Moon and Saturn. I have been discovering strange objects and buildings for years.

NASA has made it so hard to find these images but the information is hidden in plain sight on the Web. Google Moon and Mars have been a large help in finding these hi-definition images. Its hard to believe that there are only a few people who are willing to spend the time to find these objects.

It takes approximately 5 hours to scan each photo but the rewards are great.  If anyone has any strange findings on the planets and Moon, send them to me at and I will publish them on my web site Please make a notation on the photos as to when you discovered the object and the location on the plants or the Moon. You can use my photos as an example on how to do that.

This image [above] is from our Moon. It seems to show a strange building near the Zeeman U crater.

Editor's note: I found this one from an image of the surface of Mercury. It appears to show a saucer shaped object embedded in the dirt of that planet.

As you can see I only publish something that is definitely a strange artifact. Too many published photos show blurry structures and hard to see things that are not good examples of findings on the Planets. I am enclosing a few of the findings I have made and would like your opinion.  Debunkers stay away. Your opinion is not worth the time to read. 

I want further investigation into these photos and someone with the equipment to do so. I welcome researchers and professionals to look further into these images and maybe get a better view or image of my findings.

These are only a few of the discoveries I have made. Most UFO organizations area afraid to publish an article like this. This also make me wonder if they have their own agenda or maybe they are afraid of the truth.

The more information that we can supply to the public will increase our odds of making the government finally disclose what they know. Right now they look stupid because we all know, that they know, what's going on. Some will say I have no qualifications to do this but I say, "I do have eyes and I do have the passion to find out the truth." You do not have to be a doctor, professor, astronomer or scientist to find these things. All you need is the will to do it.





Existence of life on Mars is about to be revealed. Yes! Another shocking revelation has raised many questions for the exo-planet experts.

Recently, an ancient tomb has been revealed on Mars. In terms of architecture, this tomb is totally similar to Japanese tomb of Konfun. How could this be?

Persistent revelations of unprecedented things on Mars raise many questions for humankind. Indeed, John Lash has suggested that manipulative aliens have been responsible for the development of many essentially oppressive and bigoted organized religions on Earth.

Previously, a metallic cable was discovered from the surface of this planet. And, it was supposed to be a cable of Alien's space ship. Experts have found enough evidence to determine whether life was there on Mars or not. This is not a fantasy. You may check this tomb by yourself, said UFOs online blog UFO Sightings Daily. This news agency reported to have said "If you want a look for yourself, just copy/paste the coordinates given below into the Google search box, but you must hit the button on the bar at the top of the screen to switch from Earth view to Mars view."

Japanese Coordinates: 36° 7'45.64"N 139°28'52.95"E Mars Coordinates: 6° 3'57.07"N 92° 4'13.22"E Inevitably, this is the biggest revelation so far of Mars. It has yet to investigate whether the revealed tomb had been manufactured from the same concrete material that was used for building ancient Japanese tomb of Konfun. The abrupt revelations raise questions for our exo planet experts. And, unless this tomb is not closely probed, it could remain a mystery for the people living on Earth.

KEN'S NOTE: New images of discoveries on Mars are being revealed every day. Its just a matter of time before the government admits that there are strange things on Mars. We know it. They know it. Its time to admit that apparently past civilizations have lived on Mars.

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden (above) has been named in the lawsuit from Rhawn Joseph accusing the agency of not investigating alien life.

A self-described scientist has filed a lawsuit alleging NASA is failing to properly investigate alien life.

Rhawn Joseph, who's written several books on extraterrestrial activity, wants the space agency to further analyze a strange rock on Mars, which he believes is proof of Martian activity.

The author claims researchers have not properly analyzed the stone, which somehow appeared in front of the Opportunity rover last week.

The jelly doughnut-shaped rock initially baffled scientists after it mysteriously showed up in images taken less than two weeks apart.

It's now believed it was simply knocked out of the ground by the planetary explorer.

But Joseph, a key writer with the online Journal of Cosmology, says the rock is "a living thing" and has now filed a lawsuit in a California court to make NASA examine it more closely.

Aimed at the agency and its Administrator Charles Bolden, Popular Science reports the suit requests NASA "perform a public, scientific, and statutory duty."

To do this, it says, NASA needs to "closely photograph and thoroughly scientifically examine and investigate a putative biological organism."

Joseph claims the rock was there the whole time, but that it just grew before it became visible.

The refusal to take close up photos from various angles ... to take microscopic images of the specimen ... to release high resolution photos, is inexplicable, recklessly negligent, and bizarre," his suit adds.

Joseph now wants Bolden and his rover team to take 100 high resolution close-up in focus photos of the rock from all sides under appropriate lightning conditions with minimum glare.

He also wants to see 24 microscopic, in-focus images of the exterior, lip, walls and interior of the specimen under appropriate lighting conditions.

And, finally, he wants the rover team to make all of the pictures available to him so he can analyze them himself.

NASA has yet to comment on the suit.
