The possibility of existence of life forms on other planets has always charmed men. But only in fairly recent times the means with which we can explore celestial bodies in a scientific manner have become available. Countless probes have been launched toward planets belonging to our solar system, to study their characteristics and to understand if any form of life may have developed on them. Among planets, Mars is still the more studied planet, both for the proximity to the Earth and mainly because it is the most Earth-similar celestial body and maybe it's able to receive any type of living organism.
There's an opinion shared among scientists by now that says that if we'll find life on Mars, it surely won't have an evolutionary stage higher than the one of a bacterium. It's an opinion that has become a dogma with the passing of time, supported even in the presence of photographic documents, still without explanation, that could invalidate it.
It's the case of a photo taken
by MOC (Mars Orbiter Camera), a satellite for photographical mapping
of Mars that, at latitude -82.02°, longitude 284.38° (near to the
Martian south pole) has filmed something totally incredible, but still
neglected: it's some form of vegetation on Mars.
As one can see in the image,
shapes very similar to big trees (with branches) seen by above are
Here's the complete "strip" taken by MOC, that shows plants becoming more and more thick, actually creating a forest. A geological phenomenon vaguely similar to this doesn't quite exists. The high resolution photo is visible by clicking here (259Kb)
But then, what is the explanation? The simplest explanation is that some vegetable life forms (perhaps dating back to times when water was abundant on Mars) continue to grow on the planet, probably sinking their roots in a partially frozen water layer and able to bear strong changes in temperature.
In regard to their size, the
biggest trees visible in the image have a diameter of about 1 kilometer.
obviously may seem too much, if it's compared with a terrestrial tree.
But if we consider that:
then their huge dimensions become more acceptable. Anyway in the photo we can see also more "normal-sized" trees.
Unfortunately no scientist accurately studied this document, because the "official science" says we cannot find trees there. Stop. But the "martian forest" continue to grow regardless.

This isn't the only evidence of vegetable life on the red planet, other images taken by MOC exist which show what could be brushes grown among dunes.
Let's compare it with this satellite photo showing a desertic area of Australia:
In this image of the martian surface we can observe what is resembling a wood seen from above:
Here we see what really seems to be a lake (photo MOC m0901354, 2.75m/pixel):
Here too (MOC m0902042):
The following picture was
acquired by the Opportunity probe on December, 19 2004 and it needs no
comments (to the right there is a zoom of the yellow box). The original
photo is visible by clicking HERE.
Here we have two other meaningful images which show the growth of vegetation on the red planet (MOC m1001442):
It must be noted that unfortunately the Mars Global Surveyor has a camera (MOC) that shows only the red and the blue color, but not the green. It's probably the only camera ever constructed that has this feature, and I leave to your imagination what may be the reason for this technological choice....
Final note: probably
not all people know that a certain amount of methane has
been found in the Martian atmosphere (it was detected by Mars Express,
by NASA's Infrared Telescope Facility in Hawaii, by International Gemini
South observatory in Chile, by Mars Express Planetary Fourier Spectrometer
