No, I assure you, I was not.

Mr Mask, you seem to be missing the point a little in your criticism of other posters.
It "does" prove life existed on another planet. No one (not NASA, not me) are saying the "origin of life is coming from NASA any time soon.
What they were pointing out is that this - if this find indeed turns out to be proof of life on Mars - it isn't necessarily proof of an independent genesis of life on another planet.
Again, proving that life existed on another planet...and again, no one claimed this breaking news has anything to do with "pin pointing" life's ultimate origin.
On the contrary, if a sample of bacteria from Mars has found its wau here this time, then it is likely that this has happened many times before. And it is therefore possible that life started on one planet and then jumped to another planet via meteor collision.
I do not know the meaning of the word "seperately", and I am still sure it was not my original point.
So while I agree that this is a massive discovery and conclusion, I think you are drawing inaccurate conclusions if you think that this proves life on Mars and earth originated seperately.

didnt read all comments, but did anyone have a wtf moment?
1) how do they know where the rock came from. I know they theorize where meteorites come from based on factors such as crystal growth and such that is barely science imo (read it..its very shaky science)
2) 16 million years ago the solar system was formed almost as it is today...what the hell are they talking about anyhow. from what my science class taught me, the solar system is several billion years old...well, the sun anyhow, and the planets not too far after that event.
this is like saying 30 years ago when the united states was forming...
According to scientists, the meteorite was broken off the surface of Mars by the impact of an asteroid, and reached Earth after floating through space for about 16 million years. It landed in Allan Hills in Antarctica. Scientists were able to trace the meteorite back to Mars, as its chemical composition matched the relative proportions of various gases measured in observations of the atmosphere of Mars made by the Viking spacecraft in the 1970s.

Some of you sharp-shooters are forgetting that the British million is an American billion, among other things. Remember, we're dealing with two different languages that appear quite similar
Very cool, and IF true, the greatest news I have ever heard from any scientific study ever produced from anywhere. And...again...IN YOUR FACE anti-disclosure people (me included, I laughed at the disclosure people, just not openly).

Mars was inhabited,and many fossils have been found,and ALL of you came from "Seeds" that were your familys heritage here. There was no creation event here,everyone came here originally in a lifter.
There is no big bang that created the universe,men did, I assure you,scientists,real scientists.
Lifters are everywhere and people arrive here and deploy out weekly,I assure you.
You cannot rely on a radar signature with a frequency field providing anti grav for a lifter,I assure you.
Check out the book on Vimanas found in India and deciphered into English from old sanscrit,it will give you a bit of foundation,but tht is old tech.
Each genetic field was originally protocoled in a different universe or galaxy and each was brought here as miners.
Now here is a statement that I can prove very easily with a conversation,"There are NO natural mountains on this planet" and each place such as the great salt lake was built here for those processes.
I can also accurately explain hthe what ,why and how of the Nazca lines,but usually get a large amount of static attack when I make statements of fact.
Im from a specific science department that is constantly under siege here,were from here,and task here to try and keep processes whole for the systems and eco-systems.
Knowing how to identify lifters would help the nay sayers discern better and just simply shut up..They are all over the planet and the cloaking mechanism is very,very simple as well as the anti -grav system.
The Gov. has re-completed them and the boys from somewhere else control that faction of the system now,therefore absolutely no dis-closure.
