Your Quote"A scientist examines the possibility of finding mirages on Mars, written in 1977, yet to date not a single mirage has been observed on Mars."
Of course, there is a problem there, because this scientist, is not standing on the surface of Mars, looking at a distance and seeing these mirages. This is only a theory and/or speculation.
