Congressman Rohrabacher (R-CA) is a member of House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. Speaking to the panel of NASA scientists, the Congressman asked, “You have indicated that Mars had, was totally different thousands of years ago. Is it possible that there was a civilization on Mars thousands of years ago?”
Dr. Kenneth Farley, a project manager behind Mars Rover 2020, said the question was premised incorrectly since the Mars was totally several different billion years ago, not thousands of years ago.
In answering the Congressman’s direct question, Mr. Farley said that it was “extremely unlikely” that ancient alien civilizations lived on Mars billions of years ago.
