Mars: Will scientists have the Curiosity to question longstanding assumptions?

For reasons that no planetary scientist has explained, the crust of the northern hemisphere has been excavated. It’s been eaten away, up to six miles deep. And there is one force only that could achieve hemispheric excavation of a planet. That force is “electric discharge” in an age of planetary instability and violence. (…) If NASA would open to an electrical interpretation, a different picture of solar system history is certain to follow.” –  David Talbott

Within the theoretical sciences today, curiosity is absent. Here we have a laboratory in space, the planet Mars, which offers such a unique opportunity for discovery in the sciences. But the questions are not being asked. Just consider, for example, the mystery of the Martian profile as a whole, where you have a split-personality, completely unexplained. Two hemispheres so radically different: in the north, virtually no craters; in the south, dense cratering. How could that be? We make assumptions about planetary evolution and hold on to those assumptions for decades after they have stopped working.” (1)
