by Alfred Lambremont Webre, JD, MEd
The discovery of life on Mars by Andrew D. Basiago has been chosen as the #1 UFO story of 2008.
This reporter notified of the award by veteran broadcaster Jerry Pippin in a May 10, 2009 email statement, “We made your [EXOPOLITICS RADIO with Alfred Lambremont Webre] broadcast story on the discovery of life on Mars the top UFO event of 2008.”
In a 41-page paper dated Dec. 12, 2008, Washington State trial lawyer and environmental scholar Andrew D. Basiago sets out analysis and photographs identifying 3 species of humanoid beings, numerous species of animals, structures and statues on the surface of Mars. These photographs are images isolated by Andrew D. Basiago from within NASA rover Spirit photograph PIA 10214 , a composite photograph taken in November 2007 in the Columbia basin on Mars, and released public by NASA on its website in January 2008.
Top 5 UFO stories of 2008
The top 5 UFO stories of 2008 as chosen by Jerry Pippin include:
“1. Life on Mars? NASA [rover Spirit] photos seem to show statues, totem poles and other evidence of life.
“2. Needles UFO Crash or was it something from Black Ops?
“3. Death of Mr. X- UFO whistle blower, who did a series of shows on top secret papers involving military knowledge of UFOs dies mysteriously in December.
“4. Gary McKinnon, the UFO hacker battles extradition to the US for cyber terrorism - He just received a judicial review slated for Mid-March in his fight to stay in the UK
“5. The Stephenville, Texas UFO sighting - UFOs near the Bush Vacation White House, hundreds see them.”
On learning of the award, Basiago praised the work of other Mars anomaly researchers including Schiaparelli, Lowell, Tesla, Di Pietro, Molinar, Carlotto, Hoagland, Drasin, McDaniel, Pillinger, Hancock, Van Flanderen, Skipper, Brown, and Webre.
"Yes! Mars is inhabited!" - Andrew D. Basiago
Reached at his law office in southwest Washington State, Mr. Basiago stated, "I am delighted and honored that Jerry Pippin has selected my discovery of life on Mars as the top UFO story of 2008.
"When I was writing my paper The Discovery of Life on Mars in 2008, I knew that I was standing on the shoulders of giants.
"For more than a century, many dedicated and diligent investigators have endeavored to enlighten human beings on Earth about the fact that life exists on Mars.
"I would include in this tradition such individuals as Schiaparelli, Lowell, Tesla, DiPietro, Molenaar, Carlotto, Hoagland, Drasin, McDaniel, Pillinger, Hancock, Van Flanderen, Skipper, Brown, and Webre.
"These Mars researchers have posed to humanity a question of vital significance, namely, "Does the planet that every two years comes closest to Earth harbor life?," and with it, by implication, the question, "Do we live in an inhabited Universe?"
"I was the individual given the cosmic privilege to discover in NASA's own photographs dispositive evidence of life on Mars, and affirm the question long posed by these earlier researchers, and declare, at last, "Yes! Mars is inhabited!"
"The Discovery of Life on Mars is the first work in natural history to analyze evidence of life forms and ancient artifacts on Mars in such a way as to demonstrably prove that Mars is inhabited.
"Now that humanity has this information available to us, we must move beyond the debate over whether Mars is inhabited and begin the debate about what we should do about the discovery that Mars is inhabited.
"The United States and Russia are presently planning manned missions to Mars, and even as distinguished a space scientist as astronaut Buzz Aldrin has called for the placement of human settlements on Mars.
"Since Mars does not belong to us -- since Mars belongs to the Martians -- such proposals are fraught with scientific, diplomatic and environmental implications that we have not even begun to ponder, much less publicly debate.
"We must now decide whether such visits to Mars should even take place, and if they do take place, how they might take place without causing irreparable harm to the environment of Mars or untoward disruption of its indigenous civilization."

Programs on the award-winning discovery of life on Mars by Andrew D. Basiago include the following:
(1) EXOPOLITICS RADIO: The Discovery of Life on Mars by Andrew D. Basiago with Alfred Lambremont Webre --
Part I: The Beings on the Edge and the Humanoid Beings in the Rock Garden and on Tsiolkovski Ridge
Summary of program: Part I of a conversation with Andrew D. Basiago about his discovery of life on Mars in NASA photograph PIA10214, which is a panoramic montage of a series of snapshots of the Martian surface that were taken by NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit in 2007, when Spirit was perched on the western edge of the Home Plate plateau in the inner basin of the Columbia Hills range of the Gusev Crater on Mars. How NASA photograph PIA10214 contains evidence of four different types of humanoid beings, animal species that exist, once existed, or have never existed on Earth, carved statues, built structures, and dead bodies. How the iconic figure of a human female found jutting from the edge of a plateau in the NASA photo is actually part of a complex statue that combines human male and female figures, a pediment, and a painted rock carving of a plumed serpent biting the neck of a bearded male human. How humanoid beings with bulbous heads and spindly bodies are plainly visible in The Rock Garden and on Tsiolkovski Ridge.

2. EXOPOLITICS RADIO: The Discovery of Life on Mars by Andrew D. Basiago with Alfred Lambremont Webre
-- Part II: Typologies of Martian humanoids
Summary of program: Part II of a conversation with American lawyer Andrew D. Basiago about his discovery of life on Mars in NASA photographs PIA10214, which is a panoramic montage of a series of snapshots of the Martian surface that were taken by NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit in 2007, when Spirit was perched on the western edge of the Home Plate Plateau in the inner basin of the Columbia Hills range inside the Gusev Crater on Mars.
How four typologies of possible humanoids have been identified in the NASA photograph:
(1) First typology: Humanoid beings with bulbous heads and spindly bodies, like the Gray "extraterrestrials" of the UFO literature;
(2) Second typology: Transparent forms, like glass totems;
(3) Third typology: Human-insect hybrids, such as The Scorpion Man that can be seen in The Turquoise Field; Human-reptile hybrids, such as the Gumby Lizards that can be seen in and around The Rock Garden; and beings with humanoid heads and larval, worm-like, or slug-like bodies that can be seen throughout photograph PIA10214;
(4) Fourth typology: The forms that are almost "all head," like the comedic form christened Mr. Potato Head, which might not be a life form but a building.
How the evidence of intelligent humanoid life on Mars suppressed by NASA includes:
(1) Abstract artwork, with many carved heads and faces formed from indigenous rocks predominating; bas reliefs and intaglios on the sides of rocks, which are also ubiquitous; and ground drawings seen in the far distance from both the western edge of the Home Plate Plateau in PIA10214 and the southern edge of the Home Plate Plateau in PIA11049;
(2) Architecture, including The Face of the Bull that can be seen on the right edge of the Home Plate Plateau, which is a terraced, multi-leveled platform that might have once have served as a home or a viewing platform at a natural vista point that overlooks the valley terrain depicted in PIA10214.

Part III: Typologies of Martian animals
Summary of program: Part III of a conversation with American lawyer Andrew D. Basiago about his discovery of life on Mars in NASA photograph PIA10214, which is a panoramic montage of a series of snapshots of the Martian surface that were taken by NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit in 2007, when Spirit was perched on the western edge of the Home Plate Plateau in the inner basin of the Columbia Hills range of the Gusev Crater on Mars.
How NASA photograph PIA10214 contains evidence of animal species that exist, once existed, or have never existed on Earth.
These include animal species of the:
(1) First category - Animals that presently exist on Earth. The first category consists of animals that resemble species that presently live on Earth. This category includes elephants, platypuses, horses, cows, frogs, turtles, snakes, slugs, and snails;
(2) Second category - Hybrids of living Earth species. The second category is those animals that combine elements of species that inhabit Earth at this time in Earth's biological history and that from our perspective would be viewed as hybrids of living animal species. This category is exemplified by one species on Mars that combines the bodily shape of an octopus with the face of a lion or a dog;
(3) Third category - Extinct Earth species. The third category includes those animals that resemble dinosaur and reptile species that are extinct on Earth. In this category, we can place the plesiosaur, which has been proposed as a solution to the Loch Ness, Lake Champlain, and Lake Okanogan mysteries. Plesiosaurus, a reptile species, is quite common on Mars, but did not survive the K-T extinction on Earth. The plesiosaurs on Mars resemble the dinosaur species brachiosaurus or a long-necked tortoise;
(4) Fourth category - Animals that have never existed on Earth. The fourth category encompasses those animals that are unlike anything that has ever lived on planet Earth. Into this category, we can place the human-lizard hybrids seen resting on the ground, as if cold-blooded and fairly immobile by nature. How reptilian species appear to predominate on Mars. How, as confirmed by Mars anomalists working separately, predation of humanoids by reptoids and serpents is extensive on Mars and how, in this way, the balance of nature on Mars diverges from that on Earth.

EXOPOLITICS: The Discovery of Life on Mars by Andrew D. Basiago with Alfred Lambremont Webre
Part IV: Martian structures; NASA's cover-up of life on Mars
Summary of program: Part IV of a conversation with American lawyer Andrew D. Basiago about his discovery of life on Mars in NASA photograph PIA10214, which is a panoramic montage of a series of snapshots of the Martian surface that were taken by NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit in 2007, when Spirit was perched on the western edge of the Home Plate Plateau in the inner basin of the Columbia Hills range of the Gusev Crater on Mars.
How the evidence of built structures on Mars found in NASA PIA10214 is so strong that it proves that Mars is – or once was – inhabited by beings capable of building things.
How some of the best evidence for built structures is lying within plain sight, on the right side of the cliff directly in front of Spirit. There, laid out like a child's toys, are The Sarcophagus of a King, an aqueduct shaped like a Water Sprite, and the scaffolding of a long-ago abandoned building crafted to resemble The Face of a Bull.
How the sarcophagus resembles a tin soldier and has the head and body of a king in the Egyptian style. We can readily see the king's eye, ear, and beard. Amazingly, his thin neck remains intact. The king is wearing a hat identical to the banked, cylindrical type worn by the Great Royal Wife of the Sun King Pharaoh Akhenaton, Queen Nefertiti, as depicted in the iconic bust of her discovered by Ludwig Borchardt at Amarna, Egypt in 1912.
How, as with the sarcophagus, an Egyptian hat sits atop one of the stone heads on Tsiolkovski Ridge and The Queen at the Outcropping, whose "Gray" face and mitered hat blend into the terrain because they were carved from the same amber-colored rock. Curiously, the statues on the ridge and the sarcophagus have been placed true north, which suggests that the entire area might once have served as a funereal site.
Metaphorically, they also point to Egypt and the historical linkage between Ancient Egypt and Ancient Mars.
How cat statues on Mars also reveal this connection to Ancient Egypt, where cats were commonplace in statuary and worshiped during the reign of the Pharaohs.
How NASA, which was charged in the National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958 with exploring space on behalf of humankind and informing all humanity of its discoveries, is now engaged in a cover-up of the fact that life exists on Mars.
How NASA is engaged in a strategy of disinformation, in which it periodically releases news of small, incremental discoveries that it is making on Mars, such as the existence of ice or methane, while concealing the fact that evidence that life exists on Mars is to be found in the photographs of the Red Planet taken by Spirit.

About award-winning discoverer Andrew D. Basiago
The discoverer of life on Mars, Andrew D. Basiago, 47, is an American trial lawyer, writer, and environmental scholar. He was born on September 18, 1961 in Morristown, New Jersey, the youngest of five children, and grew up in New Jersey and California. Andy was one of the “whiz kids” who served from 1969 to 1972 in DARPA’s time-space exploration program, Project Pegasus.
A past member of Mensa, the high IQ society, he holds five degrees, including a BA in History from UCLA and a Master of Philosophy from the University of Cambridge. While an undergraduate at UCLA, Andy became a journalist and a protégé of editor Norman Cousins of the Saturday Review, who once compared him to Robert Hutchins and nominated him to be the Editor of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. He was inspired by a meeting with architect Buckminster Fuller in 1981 to pursue a career in environmental policy. After their meeting, Fuller wrote: “Andrew Basiago’s integrity augurs well for humanity’s continuance in (the) Universe.”
Andy began his career writing articles about the urban environment for Los Angeles newspapers, national periodicals, and the Cousteau Society magazine Calypso Log. He studied environmental law at Northwestern School of Law of Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon, and then went on to design nature-friendly urban plans for cities in California and study environmental law and policy with Professor Malcolm Grant at Cambridge. His papers about the theory and practice of urban sustainability have been published in international, peer-reviewed journals in Australia, Britain, and the United States, cited widely, and placed in the environmental policy collections of major university libraries.
Andy was admitted to the Washington State Bar Association in 1996. A lawyer in private practice, he represents and collaborates with writers and filmmakers in the development of books, TV shows, and feature films with planetary and interplanetary themes. Recently, he edited several major works related to humanity’s contact with extraterrestrial life. He was the editor of Alfred Lambremont Webre’s book, Exopolitics: Politics, Government and Law in the Universe (Universe Books, 2005), which uses as a case study human contact with an advanced civilization on Mars. He also edited The Fátima Trilogy by Joaquim Fernandes, Fina d’Armada, and other scholars (Anomalist Books, 2007), a definitive history of the Fátima Incident of 1917 that explores its extraterrestrial aspects.
Andy founded the Mars Anomaly Research Society (MARS) in 2008 after discovering abundant evidence of life in a photograph of the Red Planet beamed back to Earth by NASA’s Mars Exploration Rover Spirit. His discovery of life on Mars might be an epochal event in human history. His crusade to evaluate and prove his findings and bring them to public light has been called “heroic.” About his discovery, Andy stated: “NASA-JPL photograph PIA10214 is going to spark a second Copernican revolution on our planet, and it was my cosmic privilege to discover that it contained evidence of life on Mars. Society will be transformed – I think, for the better – by the revelation of the fact that we are not alone in the Universe, indeed, that we are not even alone in our own solar system.”
