One prominent physicist Enrico Fermi entered into a dispute with a theoretical physicist and UFOlogist convinced Edward Teller. Future developer of thermonuclear weapons launched into the argument that many star systems have to be "on the principle of similarity" inhabited by aliens. What Fermi threw sarcastic remark: "Have you thought about the fact that if aliens exist, where are they?"

This issue with the passage of time took shape paradox and has nearly 65 years is haunted enthusiasts interplanetary contacts. Not only to be explained! And the unique version of earthlings, and the idea of ​​space reserve, and the assumption of "non-technological" other civilizations ....

One of the latest hypotheses associated with the probe-berserkers. These "space conquistadors", according to the California physicist John Brandenburg, could destroy the Martian civilization, and possibly destroy neighboring planet Phaeton.

Initially, Professor Brandenburg inclined to believe that a few hundred million years ago on Mars occurred colossal explosion of natural nuclear reactor, covered planet radioactive debris and dust. In his discussion, he relied on the opening in the bowels of the Oklo mine Gabonese underground nuclear reactor running nature about a billion years ago. Then in the rocks of West Africa underground stream washed the Uranium deposit, playing the role of a cooler and a neutron moderator.

Explosion in Atsidaliyskom Sea

In the model of Brandenburg about a billion years km depth beneath the Martian Atsidaliyskim sea existed extensive ore body of converging lived Uranium-235, thorium and potassium. Infiltrated groundwater launched a nuclear reaction, for which the concentration of Uranium was to be within 3%.

A few hundred million years Atsidaliysky reactor began to produce nuclear fuel in the form of Uranium-233 and plutonium-239 faster than burn it. Strong neutron flux has also led to the formation of large amounts of radioactive isotopes of potassium. At some point in the reactor went critical regime - the water has boiled away, which led to an increase in the neutron flux and the launch of a spontaneous chain reaction involving Uranium-233 and plutonium-239.

Because of the large size of the ore body and its position on the kilometer depth reaction continued without explosive destruction to a sufficiently high degree of burnout.

According to the calculations of Brandenburg energy of the explosion was equivalent to the energy of the fall of the 30-kilometer asteroid. However, unlike the asteroid impact explosion hearth located closer to the surface, and a cavity formed by them were much smaller in depth than the impact craters.

Region with a high concentration of thorium is in the northwest Atsidaliyskogo sea in a wide shallow trough. The content of trace thorium and radioactive isotopes of potassium indicates that the nuclear accident occurred a few hundred million years ago.

According to planetary scientists studying the surface structure of the Red Planet, its features are associated with "normal" geological processes, rather than with the old atomic explosion. In this they are supported by researchers Martian meteorites, which do not find any anomalies their isotopic composition.

Reasoned criticism hypothesis explosion "natural Martian reactor" made Professor Brandenburg to change their point of view and assume that once in the atmosphere of Mars, there were two powerful thermonuclear explosion. A new hypothesis American physicist based not only on the old arguments raised concentration of xenon-129 gas in the atmosphere, but also on the new data on the presence on the surface of the isotopes of Uranium, thorium and potassium.

Based on the patterns of gamma radiation radioactive elements, Brandenburg believes that the epicenter of the explosion is in the north sea and Atsidaliyskogo Utopia Planitia. The spectrum of xenon isotopes in the Martian atmosphere reminiscent of similar parameters in the fission of fast neutrons in nuclear tests in the world. At the same time, the absence of significant craters in these areas suggests that the explosion occurred on the surface, like the famous Tunguska meteorite. Thermonuclear bombs dropped on Mars, a thoUSAnd times superior to the most powerful terrestrial counterparts. Brandenburg even tried to calculate the dimensions for the most "alien bomb" and got a huge device with a diameter of one hundred and fifty meters.
Martian gas xenon isotopes resemble components of the earth's atmosphere, recorded in the explosions of atomic and thermonuclear bombs. Another sign of a powerful explosion of a hydrogen bomb on Mars is an anomaly isotopes of heavy inert gases. For example, the spread of the Martian isotopes of krypton is somewhat similar to their distribution on the solar surface, which is raging in the depths of thermonuclear reaction.

Professor Brandenburg believes that thermonuclear strikes on Mars were not accidental. In the past, the red planet could well be close to the earth's climate and biological evolution - lead to a humanoid civilization. Maybe the famous "ruins" in the Cydonia region, where the eroded hill "Martian Sphinx" and rock formations resembling the "five-pointed pyramid" of artificial origin?

If so, then these archaeological artifacts indicate the existence of an ancient Martian civilization level of the Bronze Age. Perhaps these germs extraterrestrial intelligence uproot some ruthless hand as a result of terrible planetary catastrophe. Ultimately, in a very short period of time vanished Martian biosphere, and the climate became quite different from Earth's. But what could destroy the hypothetical Martian civilization?

The famous British astronomer Edward Harrison believed that the old galactic civilization should make every effort to try to seize valuable resources neighbors and destroy them in their "galactic expansion".

Harrison suggested that hostile probes reached and the solar system. At the same time, they destroyed not only primitive culture of Mars, but also high-tech civilization Phaeton - planets that between Jupiter and Mars.

For a long time in the scientific and popular literature strongly debated hypothesis destruction of the planet Phaeton, torn gravity of Mars and Jupiter. It was believed that this is what could be the main asteroid belt. However, some modern computer models have questioned this original hypothesis. The main counterargument here is associated with the estimates of the total mass of the asteroid is too small.

In this case, one of the catastrophic scenarios gravitational interaction planetoid, like Phaeton, and asteroids implies a sharp change in their orbits. Most likely, here and lie causes catastrophic bombing billions of years ago, when a part of the asteroid became dangerous to cross the orbit of Mars, Earth and the Moon, falling on their surface. The very same Phaeton, making chaos in the inner solar system, has disappeared: moving on highly elongated orbit, the planet could dangerously closer to the Sun and be absorbed by them. In recent years, there is another version of this hypothesis, according to which Phaeton died, but because of the effect of "gravitational slingshot" was thrown to the outskirts of the solar system, adding to the population of Kuiper Belt or Oort cloud.

Harrison, along with associates from the University of Massachusetts has developed the hypothesis that life on Mars has destroyed a large shard of Phaeton, the size of a Martian Moon. Blow like planetoid could disrupt the atmosphere and evaporate sea.

It is still hard to tell which version of plausible - blow (or more) of giant asteroid or a thermonuclear attack from space. In any case, if the Martian civilization existed (and it rightly denies official science), its destruction is terrible sign of the presence of hostile cosmic forces of natural or artificial origin. In the latter case we have another version of the explanation of the Fermi paradox, including the scenario of "star Wars."

Does this mean that the main threat to human civilization can create other intelligent life, far ahead of us in development?
