The history of the Red Planet features enchanted fiction, diabolical deception, frustrated hopes, cutting-edge science, and dark occult beliefs. Over the past half-century, this story intensified as the exploration of our planetary neighbor expanded with satellite photo-flybys and robotic science labs creeping across the Martian surface. Despite discovering Mars’ unsuitability for life of most every kind, myths continue to flourish about intelligent life once present there, channeled encounters with aliens, rapid space travel back and forth to Mars, and a massive military base some ancient alien theorists believe exists below its surface. “(Woodward) hits every important topic regarding the burgeoning UFO phenomena in what may become a researcher’s go-to guide for UFOs, ET, and whether intelligent life ever existed (or exists today!) on Mars.“— L. A. Marzulli, (from the Foreword). S. Douglas Woodward has written seven books on alternate history, biblical eschatology, religion, and philosophy.
