In 2015, a newly published book by plasma physicist John Brandenburg, Ph.D., was entitled, “Death On Mars: The Discovery of A Planetary Nuclear Massacre.”
Sixty-five-year-old John Brandenburg received his Ph.D. in Theoretical Plasma Physics at the University of California-Davis extension campus at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, California, in 1981. His Ph.D. thesis was about magnetic confinement of plasmas for controlled nuclear fusion. For his book, he analyzed United States 1976 Viking spacecraft data about the Martian atmosphere.
John Brandenburg dug deeply into original Viking 1976 atmospheric data that showed the amount of Xenon-129 on Mars was 2.5 times more abundant than the Xenon-129 to Xenon-132 ratio here on Earth.To read more, click here.
