WATCH: GOP Congressman Seriously Asks NASA If People Lived On Mars (VIDEO)


Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a member of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology’s subcommittee on space, had a perplexing question for NASA scientists: Did people ever live on Mars thousands of years ago?

As he asks the question, you can see a guy behind him try to keep from smiling.

The panel of scientists seated in front of him, however, did a better job of hiding their laughter. With that said, Dr. Farley, had to correct him immediately.

“So, the evidence is Mars was different billions of years ago. Not thousands of years ago. Umm…there’s no evidence that I’m aware of. I would say that’s extremely unlikely.”

While an interesting question, it just goes to show how Republicans in key science positions in Congress have no idea what’s going on in the world – and the Universe. Not a clue.

Just earlier this month, this same GOP Congressman praised President Trump for withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement, saying he seriously doubts 97% of scientists wh0 say CO2 in the atmosphere was leading to climate change, a position NASA is in virtual agreement on.

Here were some reactions from people regarding his question:
