A Nuclear Explosion on Mars

It has long been a mystery of why there is a super-abundance of uranium, thorium, and potassium on the Martian surface concentrated near Mare Acidalium in the region of the large, shallow depression. Also, the Martian atmosphere has an unusual amount of radiogenic isotopes.

An explanation for this Martian mystery was presented by Space Physicist John Brandenburg at the 42nd Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in Houston, TX this month. According to the press release, Brandenburg suggests, “evidence shows that approximately 180 million years ago the planet Mars was devastated by a massive natural nuclear explosion. This natural event filled its atmosphere with radio-isotopes, irradiated its soil and atmosphere with neutrons, and spread a layer of radioactive material on the surface of Mars. His analysis estimates the force of the explosion to have been in excess of 1 million one megaton hydrogen bombs. This explosion created a region of enhanced radioactivity centered in the northern Mare Acidalium region at approximately 55N and 15 W.” You can read Brandenburg’s paper here.

If you think Brandenburg’s proposal is far-fetched, consider that something similar almost happened in Africa about two billion years ago.

In 1956, uranium was discovered in Oklo, Gabon, then a French colony. The uranium was mined and used in French nuclear reactors. Most uranium is the stable heavy isotope U-238 and has to be refined to recover the fissionable U-235. It was found that the uranium from Gabon was unusually depleted in U-235. Geologists investigated and in 1972 proposed that the U-235 was depleted because the Gabon deposits were the remains of a natural spontaneous nuclear reactor.


Perhaps the Martians got to a certain point of technological knowledge and blew them selves into oblivion?

Or, it came from planetary wars. :think: Mebbe.

not nuclear, but neutron

wipes out life for thousands of years, unlike hiroshima where is only took a few decades to rebuild

"red mercury" neutron bombs can do this

seen it in the movie Red 2..the government denies it exists

hollywood teaches alot of cool secret stuff...

Everything comes from stars. Debris from an exploded star hit the planet. Nothing more to see here. Move on.

Interesting theory.

I don't think there was civilization on Mars but I would believe some kind of activity of some sort happen once upon a time.
