US Scientist Has Technology To Teleport Aliens From Mars To Earth

Recently, on the FOI request into the Pentagon’s secretive UFO program, the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP) by the British newspaper the Sun, extraordinary information has been revealed. The newly published document says that time travel and anti-gravity technology is possible and could be harnessed by humans to visit other worlds. Amazingly, in 2013, the US scientist and businessman Dr. Craig Venter claimed to have the technology to teleport Martian life to Earth.

John Craig Venter is an American biotechnologist and businessman. He is known for leading the first draft sequence of the human genome and assembled the first team to transfect a cell with a synthetic chromosome.

Back in 2013, Dr. Venter said that he is confident there is life on Mars and announced his plans to send a “biological teleporter” to the Red Planet to find Martian DNA and beam it back to Earth.

According to him, “Not only his invention will detect and decode DNA hiding in otherworldly soil or water samples – proving once and for all that we are not alone in the universe – it would also beam the information back to Earth and allow scientists to reconstruct living copies in a biosafety facility.” He wants to detect life on Mars and bring it to Earth using a machine called a “digital-to-biological converter” (DBC), or biological teleporter.

Dr. Venter’s machine would merely create a copy of an organism from a distant location, more like a biological “fax machine.” Storing genetic code in a computer and transmitting it just like any other data is the basic idea.

In 2013, Dr. Venter’s team and scientists from NASA’s Ames Research Center, conducted field-testing of this technology in the Mojave Desert south of Baker, California: a dry environment similar to Mars. Researchers tested the unit that would, in theory, send data back from Mars. But according to Dr. Venter, a prototype of the unit that would receive the transmitted data here on Earth exists as well.

Teleportati on is real

Dr. Venter, the genetics maverick who created the first synthetic life form in 2016, beaming aliens back to recreate on Earth may sound like science fiction, but is “potentially real.”

Imagine this scenario — a novel virus is discovered with characteristics that cause scientists to worry about its impact on the world. Those scientists sequence the virus and understand its exact genetic makeup. They share that information with other scientists across the world via email, and those scientists then synthesize a replica of the virus in a controlled lab environment so they can study what makes it unique. Suddenly, we do not just have two replicas of a virus, but have genetically identical versions of the same virus. We have achieved biological teleportation.

Dr. Venter even published a prototype DBC capable of downloading digitized DNA instructions and synthesizing biomolecules from scratch. At the basis of Venter’s foray into “biological teleportation” is the idea that all life forms — at least on Earth — are essentially DNA software systems. DNA directs and creates the more tangible biological “hardware” made of proteins, cells, and tissues.

Back in 2010, researchers led by Dr. Venter at the J. Craig Venter Institute in San Diego, California, announced that they had created synthetic “minimal” cells. The genome in each cell contained just 473 key genes thought to be essential for life.

The DBC is Venter’s attempt to transfer and manufacture life. Standing at eight feet long and six feet tall, the machine is a Frankenstein beast of mechanical blocks and wires splayed out across a double-deck table. “We’re working on the portability of the machine using new technologies such as microfluidic chips and microarrays,” explained the authors.

Equipped with an ethernet hub, the DBC downloads DNA files from the Internet and prints the code using the four chemical bases of DNA — adenosine, guanine, thymine, and cytosine (A, G, T, C).

“It’s packaging complex biology that each of our tiny cells do remarkably well at a much, much smaller scale,” explained Dr. Venter.

Dr. Venter imagines combining the DBC with technologies from his synthetic organisms to construct a “blank slate” recipient cell capable of producing food, oxygen, and fuel — the perfect workhorse to send around the world or into space.

In theory, the cell would be capable of receiving any synthetic genome designed to produce life-supporting molecules. Venter says that these cells have to be engineered but notes that it can be done.

Having a DBC onboard means a crew hurtling through space would no longer rely on supply ship rendezvous — and we will never have a real life Mark Watney starved and stranded on Mars.

“People are worried about the Andromeda Strain. We can rebuild the Martians in a P-4 spacesuit lab instead of having them land in the ocean,” Dr. Venter said.

It is possible that bringing alien life forms here to Earth in a digital form, and then being brought to life by the assembly in some genomics lab, has enormous potential for accidental release into the world where that form of life may be beyond the capacity of native species to fight, including our own.
