NASA as an organization, is/are like the alchemists of old. Looking for that formula to make gold!

"What if?"... "If?".. "Theory has it!...." "I believe (have faith) there's life out there!"... We just need a couple billion more $$$$ for "research"!

"According to our mathematical calculations,....There's a wishing well, on Uranus.".... No educated person takes them seriously.

All of man's "science" is geared towards, disproving how we came to exist. Trying to disprove facts, is always an expensive endeavor.

Here's a hint. It will always come back to that "book of nonsense".

Sad fact is, people that believe in the "book of nonsense", have to help pay for their "outreach programs". Gets really old, saying I told you so.

It's not a misconception, it does not have a magnetosphere that protects the planet. Nowhere in your source does it make the claim that you make that some areas are protected and could support life. If you think it does and I missed it please quote it.

Radiation resistant, they do not thrive on it. The word thrive in this case is indicating the microbes are able to reproduce and live in this environment. The environment in this example is NOT Mars, nor is it Mars like. Testing has shown it's possible for microbes to have survived in Permafrost on Mars for millions of years, but it's been BILLIONS, not millions.

Please tell me what life found on Earth can survive on Mars and source it.


Cyanobacteria has been shown to e able to survive on mars. in fact its a possibility for terraforming the planet since it produces oxygen. the reason it can survive is it doesnt have a nucleus. Cyanobacteria have the genetic material distributed all over the inside of the cell, rather than specialized compartments. Meaning radiation cant destroy their ability to reproduce. They are extremely temperature resistant and do not require pressure remember mars is almost a vacuum.

The key with any type of life formed will be water and on mars if there is underground water supplies life may exist. But lets be honest here Cyanobacteria is the lowest possible form of life.

Now for you mars magnetosphere is not sufficient to protect organisms from radiation. And because of this Radiation will kill any life form that relies on replication using RNA or DNA. Meaning only the most basic forms of life could survive such as viruses.

Not really.

So now we have examples of both cyanobacteria and lichens that could survive on Mars for at least a month.

www.planetary.org...


“Low-light adapted organisms, such as the cyanobacteria we’ve been studying, can grow under rocks and potentially survive the harsh conditions on the red planet.”

cosmosmagazine.com...

To date there is nothing definitive.

But I like how you said underground water, that I agree. I was very careful to say nothing can survive on the SURFACE of MArs (where the test was conducted). Underground is a whole new ballgame.
