Researchers have yet to find any evidence of life on any other planet, including Mars.

But that hasn’t stopped some rogue scientists from making outlandish claims and self-publishing “evidence” of the existence of a microbiological presence on the Red Planet, as CNET’s Jackson Ryan reports in an outstanding feature.

Self-described neurobiologist Rhawn Gabriel Joseph — a man referred to by Ryan as the “Space Tiger King,” a nod to the popular Netflix docuseries — is convinced that life already exists on Mars and Venus, and that we already have the evidence to back it up.

The roots of Joseph’s school of thought first started with the “labeled release” (LR) experiments on Mars in the 1970s, when NASA’s Viking lander looked for biosignatures on the planet by carrying out a series of tests.
