This is exciting stuff!

The co-author of this paper is Ron Levin whose father is Gilbert
Levin, principal investigator of the 1976 Viking Mars lander's
'Labeled Release' experiment which did indeed discover life on
Mars - after the 1976 Viking data is reinterpretated in light on
what we now know 3 decades later regarding the high surface
temperatures, soil composition and the abundance of liquid water
on Mars just below the ground (see URL below).

Ron was a 20 year-old graduate student and at JPL when the first
color images came in from the Viking Mars lander. He said those
original images showed a blue sky and rocks with greenish
patches on them but that those images were quickly adjusted so
that the sky and the rocks all had the same reddish tint. Ron
got into trouble with the JPL staff when he re-set the monitors
to the original colour settings.

Ron later speculated that the colour of the Viking Mars images
were made to look much redder because the greenish patches
evident on the Martian rocks strongly suggested to scientists
that plants were growing on them - all under a blue Earth-like
sky - and they "knew" this was not possible...

For further evidence as to why I believe that the original
colour Viking images were the correct ones you simply have to
look at the red, white and blue U.S. flag printed on the two
Viking Mars landers. The U.S. flag's colours look much closer to
the true colours when seen in the original images than in those
corrected reddish tinted ones.

Of course, I am not suggesting that NASA participated or is
involved in an ongoing cover-up regarding the discovery of ET
life on Mars, but it does seems that way.

Maybe the next Mars lander, Phoenix, whose mission it is to
'follow the water' will allow us to determine which views
regarding liquid water and present-day life on Mars are the
correct ones.
