There are some who believe that there was a secret space programme and that humans actually landed on Mars in the late 60s or early 70s.
A film was allegedly leaked from NASA. The footage which is not very clear is apparantly from a manned mission to Mars – in 1973.
The film, which shows some wobbly-cam footage of the planet, begins with a sign saying, ‘Not for public distribution.’
Must be real, then.
Conspiracy theorists believe that there was a ‘secret space programme’, codenamed Project Redsun, when humans landed on Mars in the late 60s or early 70s.
Conspiracy theorists believe that this is being kept from the ordinary public for various sinister reasons – and that NASA and other governments are covertly in contact with aliens.
Some of these theorists believe that the current Curiosity Rover is a giant hoax – pointing to the vehicle’s shiny solar panels as ‘evidence’ that they are being polished by humans already on Mars.
Nigel Watson, author of the Haynes UFO Investigations Manual, says, ‘These accounts of secret space missions seem to be growing in number and remind me of the infamous Project Serpo.’
‘In November 2005, a contact called ‘anonymous’, who said they worked for the US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) started sending information about an extraordinary alien exchange programme, called Project Serpo. Basing his claims on a 3,000-page document written in the late 1970s, he boldly claimed that six aliens were recovered from the Roswell crash.’
‘Claims that aliens living and/or dead were recovered from the Roswell crash are nothing new, but in this case it was stated that an alien survivor from the crash, called EBE 1, helped to organise twelve specially trained people to visit his home planet Serpo in the Zeta Reticuli solar system. This mission occurred in 1965 and they remained there until 1978. During their stay two of them died, two remained on the planet and the rest, after returning to Earth, have died because of the high levels of radiation they were exposed to on Serpo.’
‘Bill Ryan who posted these claims online concluded that ‘the Serpo story is a mixture of disinformation (i.e. truth mixed with added fictional elements) and naturally occurring compounded errors…surrounding a core of extraordinary truth.’
