Is life bubbling up in Mars?


www.newscientist.com

IS LIFE bubbling onto the Martian surface in muddy squirts? The discovery of what could be mud volcanoes on the planet suggest it is possible, providing a new focus in the hunt for alien microbes.

Three plumes have recently been identified as sources of methane in Mars's atmosphere . This has led to suggestions that the gas could have been produced by microbes living a few kilometres beneath the surface, where it could be warm enough for liquid water to persis

While not as fascinating as the search for intelligent life, the quest for "non-intelligent' life in our solar system has been a remarkable jouney.

So the question is, if life is found on Mars (lets say some microbes) - then what next? Will we bring those life forms to earth? Or transfer some earth based microbes to Mars? Or maybe have a hybrid variety !

Since man is aiming to colonize Mars in the long term, any discovery of life on Mars becomes significant to us. Maybe we can harvet these life forms to create the right atmosphere for us on Mars, or we may use them to grow food on Mars?

The possibiites are endless.

Given the selfish nature of humans, life anywhere else doesn't matter.

It seems to me, all the effort put into space program, are looking for things we can use, not life.

Oh, is there gold over there? LOL, think we'd ever hear about the true search of it all?

It isn't for life, it is for the raping of another planet, since our resources are finite.

THEY have known about life elsewhere for many many years.

They are however, very quickly comming to the point of releasing it to the public. First it will be a microbe, then something bigger....and then the BIG whopper!

Can you give specific examples? Who are these "They" and why are they hiding the truth from us.

Are you talking about whistleblowers such as Bob Lazar, Michael Wolf or Philip Corso?

I couldn't agree with you more.
The information that has been presented through out the field of Ufology has, in my opinion, proved the existence of extraterrestrials.
So, why does the government waste all of this money, time and resources on discovering something that we already know is there?
One reason is that by discovering micro lifeforms in our own backyard, the population would probably be more comfortable with full on dis closer.
Another reason, as in what Blanda Rose said, is for resources. If the government out right said they were going to another planet to research certain elements that we do not understand, can cause a few issues. What if they discover an element that when used as a weapon can take out a whole country, people won't be to comfortable with it's discovery.
Finally, the last idea that I can think of is probably most likely. Disinformation. They need to keep up the image that our tech is increasing at a steady rate, not jumping around. If we found out that we could alter space time and that the ancients of Peru saw flying craft, that would contradict every history and science book that we have.

First they will check its dna code and see if it's related to life on Earth. I for one am very interested in the results.

"They" are the ones who have held back the info.

There are paintings with UFO's on them from the Dark Ages.

Considering Mars cooled first, developed first and more likely had life first, that it stands to reason that through impact debris flung out from Mars made their way to early Earth and seeded stuff here.

Many different theories on that though.

Life is life, regardless of level of intelligence.


Cheers!!!!

Richard C Hoagland argues that the life on Mars, that apparently created the Cydonia face and other artificial features, probably exited the planet (or extinction) is no longer present.

Plant life and insects may be present in some regions
