Cartoons but people will believe these things will happen,! Everyone needs to look on YouTube for, ‘Real stars and planets’ It will blow your mind I promise! It’s video footage from the legendary Nikon P900 high powered zoom camera of the luminaries😍 Tesla said it was an electric universe and once you see these images you’ll definitely agree. Or just type in Mars P 900 and tell me you think fElony Musk could shoot his load to a luminary! Also ask yourself that this flat and stationary viewing platform looks like from Mars P900!?

So where are the HD images of the structures, statues and figures found by Anomaly hunters within NASA images, where are the images of obvious tampering done by NASA to hide the reality of Mars. Programs such as this support the governments narrative and until we get a Mainstream Media outlet that will ask the tough questions we will continue to be lied to about what's really on the Moon and Mars. Regarding the Moon, What NASA doesn't tell us is there are ancient Sumerian texts which tell of a time when there was no moon in the sky. NASA Doesn't tell us why all the creators on the moon are the same depth as if a shell lay beneath the surface. NASA doesn't tell us why most of the mass of the moon is on the far side as if material was removed from the inside to the outside. NASA doesn't tell us why the moon rings like a bell when impacted. NASA doesn't tell us why they manipulated images to remove structures and other made objects before release to the public. NASA doesn't tells us why there are more creators on one side of the moon than the other as if at sometime in the past the moon moved through space colliding with objects in it's path. NASA doesn't tell us why energy waves are seen by amateur astronomers periodically covering the Moon's surface. NASA doesn't tell us why lights of different colors have been seen on the surface for 100's of years. These would be tough questions for NASA to answer and the same goes for the questions regarding Mars, and until the media wakes up and realizes the lies we'll never get the truth. Why don't they just tell us the truth?

24:39 There is no literal fact that this will ever happen yet and to believe it would happen within the next 50 years is unrealistic daydreaming. And we both know, Mr. Boyskins, that you show this enthusiasm for nothing but the PR because if you don´t catch some morons time to time to believe in this crazy nonsense the whole Mars exploration project would die faster than you can say "Borderwall".

If you think it takes a lot of time to drive a rover from point A to point B, try driving with a woman to find a place to eat.

14k mph relatively to Mars? Earth? The Solar System? The Milky Way? Again no velocity tag. It may become very useful for inter planetary travel. It may be as important as accounting for time zones for international travel. At least. Why 14k mph? Mars and Earth are not moving simultaneously. Niether is anything else in the Universe. Velocity must be relatively tagged to be defined. The Earth is not the central point in the Universe for measuring velocity. If this is the way velocity is measured our only colonization will continue to be on Earth. The Earth is revolving around the Sun at 100k mph and you say you are going at 14k or 16k. Are you? Where is your velocity tag?
Bijoux Art Jewellery und Kunst (9 days ago)
16k mph relative to...Earth? Mars? The Solar System? The Milky Way? Because the Earth and Mars are not moving simultaneously. Are they? No they aren't. Forgot to tag the velocity.

It said by NASA that before 15 to 20 lucks years, water level of the see's are raise too high even 5 miters or high due to global warming. It also estimated that  creation of life begins in this glob before 50 cores of years. One may presume during the period of global warming of the said 15 - 20 lucks years back , temperature of the mars was habitual to begins the lives. According to Indian Mythology, In satyaJuga 20 crore years back, one person can alive 1700 years. is it the life of the Mar's ?03 05 2019

Why is an african representing NASA when the africans couldn't even invent the WHEEL !! The only thing that the africans ever invented is the knock out game ! The africans, without help from other races, will need another 300.000 years to reach this level of technology ! So why is an african representing NASA, when they only contributed with washing the floors and the windows ?
