Hydrothermal Vents on Mars could have supported life


www.space.com

Scientists have found signs that water may once have gurgled up through the Martian soil in hydrothermal vents similar to those in Yellowstone National Park.The site of these proposed vents could possibly contain preserved traces of ancient Martian life, scientists say.

Just adding another small piece of the puzzle which will one day form the picture of there having been life on Mars.

Snippet from the second article:



A megaflood seems to have scoured a canyon on Earth which, interestingly, looks a lot like canyons on Mars. And that new conclusion, researchers say, could help figure out whether there was ever life on Mars.

Seriously,,,,, who honestly cares what Mars could have done a long time ago. What possible bearing on today's life on Earth could this have? Everytime you turn around someone else is freaking over something else they think they saw in some pictures of Mars. What difference does it make?

Simple, If life could arise not only on Earth but also on another planetary body in our own solar system, then its pretty much a foregone conclusion that life should be rather abundant throught the universe. The problem is finding the first trace of life off our planet and hopefully Mars will provide that.

Edit: However, by studying the best possible areas for life on earth that might translate to harsh conditions in space, gives a good idea of where to start looking.
