MAIN DOCUMENTS SUPPORTING OUR POSITION THAT ALL NASA MARS WEATHER DATA IS FLAWED: HOTTEST CURRENT FINDINGS
AUGUST 6, 2017: MARS CORRECT – CRITIQUE OF ALL NASA MARS WEATHER DATA.  This report now include analysis of 1,760 sols (over 2.6 Martian years) of Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) weather data.
MAY 12, 2017: PowerPoint entitled Mars is wet! This is the PowerPoint version of our Basic Report (Mars Correct – Critique of All NASA Mars Weather Data).
JULY 21, 2017: Dr. Desai’s Martian Atmosphere Model Challenge and Loss of the Schiaparelli Lander.JUNE 23, 2017: Pressure Drops as MSL Climbs Mt. Sharp vs. Scale Height Predictions.MAY 7, 2017: Unrealistic MSL ground temperature lows. Temperatures are correlated with Curiosity positions between Sols 1635 and 1659. The tree stump-like object’s position is noted.APRIL 4, 2017: Rebuttal to the REMS Weather Report for Mars Year 33 Month 10.

 

FEBRUARY 19, 2017: New report sections 14.4 to 14.5 detail MSL Air and Ground Temperature Differences, MSL Diurnal Temperature Variation.

FEBRUARY 10, 2017: Comparison of diurnal temperature changes for MSL summer (Year 2) with MSL winter (Year 2 to 3). 

FEBRUARY 2, 2017: We rexamine Dr. Prasun Desai’s ask for help with Martian atmosphere models and look at the ExoMars 2016 crash.

DECEMBER 15, 2016: Frozen Sea at Utopia PLanitia, Mars

OCTOBER 20, 2016: ExoMars 2016 Attempted Landing on Mars fails.

OCTOBER 19, 2016: It looks like the joint European-Russian Space Agency ExoMars mission attained orbit but the Shiaparelli lander signal was lost during the landing sequence. Too bad.  The lander has a Dreams-P pressure sensor that apparently was supposed to measure pressures up to 50 hPa (millibars). That’s still too low according to our math, but we looked forward to seeing some useful data soon.  Information on the weather package may be found at http://ssed.gsfc.nasa.gov/IPM/PDF/1035.pdf.

OCTOBER 15, 2016: KEVIN GALLAGHER INTERVIEWS BARRY ROFFMAN ON THE TOPIC OF MARS CORRECT RESEARCH.

 

 

APRIL 7, 2016: The REMS Team again publishes bizarre pressure spikes at MSL – including one on Sol 1301 above the capacity of the pressure sensor. Will they alter their data again now that we point it out? APRIL 11, 2016: The answer to the above question is yes. What we do here looks like meteorological prediction. But it’s really behavioral and political analysis.

Also see MSL Sol 370, 1160, 1161, 1300 and 1301 Pressure Anomalies. Note the prediction that we expect the REMS Team to publish an MSL Year 2 minimum pressure – likely 726 to 730 Pa – around Ls 150 on May 10, 2016.

MARCH 9, 2016: Comparison of Ultraviolet Radiation at Gale Crater, Mars for MSL Years 1 and 2. This page underwent major revisions on 2/22/2016 after the FMI/REMS Team/JPL read the issues we raised about low UV and then tossed out all low UV data. More and more REMS data seems to be a reaction to critiques on our Report and on this site rather than an illustration of actual conditions found on Mars.

FEBRUARY 16, 2016: Warm Winter Ground Temperatures (many above freezing) at MSL and Possible Life Seen In Conjunction With Them. We look at whether slope plays a role in the warm temperatures as is the case with Recurring Slope Lineae associated with running water on Mars.
JANUARY 17, 2016: Possible spherical life spotted on Mars by MSL.
