NASA denies Infowars claim that the agency runs a child slave colony on Mars

When Alex Jones hosted a guest who swore NASA uses children as sex slaves on Mars, the agency responded

NASA assured the public on Thursday that there was no child slave colony on the planet Mars, refuting a claim recently made by a guest on the popular "The Alex Jones Show."

“There are no humans on Mars," NASA spokesperson Guy Webster told The Daily Beast in a statement. "There are active rovers on Mars. There was a rumor going around last week that there weren’t. There are."

"But there are no humans,” he added.

According to Robert David Steele, a former CIA officer who appeared on Alex Jones' show this week, NASA had been shuttling children to the distant red planet for their blood, bone marrow and sexual exploitation.

“We actually believe that there is a colony on Mars that is populated by children who were kidnapped and sent into space on a 20-year ride,” Steele said this week on Infowars. “So that once they get to Mars they have no alternative but to be slaves on the Mars colony.”

“Look, I know that 90 percent of the NASA missions are secret and I’ve been told by high level NASA engineers that you have no idea," Jones said in response to the outlandish allegation. "There is so much stuff going on.”

Accustomed to dealing with conspiracy theories (and the bunk claims of certain websites owned by certain Oscar Award-winning actors), NASA provided a statement Thursday clearly explaining to the American people that no human, let alone no child, had ever touched foot on the planet Mars.

Infowars listeners will likely disregard the denial. A child slave colony on Mars might not even be the most absurd conspiracy theory floated on "The Alex Jones Show."
