hi ats ers just found this from a uk newspaper THE SUN, what you guys fink? is disclosure just around the corner?
NASA scientists last night unveiled compelling evidence of life on Mars. A special mission to the Red Planet has revealed the likely presence of a
form of pond scum - the building blocks of life as we know it. NASA unveiled the results of the recent Opportunity and Spirit probes sent millions of
miles through the solar system to discover signs of extraterrestrial life. The results are so promising boffins have already planned a host of other
missions to discover whether there is extraterrestrial life in the universe. The recent missions have gathered evidence of sulphates on Mars, a strong
indication there is water on the planet and therefore life. Previous missions to Mars have concluded there is probably water on the planet. But the
NASA boffins said the recent missions have gone further than any others in proving there is life on Mars. They were particularly excited about the
discovery of a sulphate called gypsum which, it has emerged recently, is found in large quantities among fossils in the Mediterranean. Jack Farmer,
researcher at the Arizona State University, in Tempe, Arizona, said he was "optimistic" there was - or had been - life on Mars. Another of the
scientists Bill Schopf, researcher at the University of California in Los Angeles, added: "One, thanks to Opportunity and the rovers and orbital
imaging it is clear that there are literally vast areas of Mars that are carpeted with various sorts of sulphates, including gypsum. "Two, it turns
out on earth there just hasn't been hardly any work done at all to show whether gypsum ever includes within it preserved evidence of former life.
"The age doesn't matter. We just didn't know that fossils and organic matter and things like that were well preserved within gypsum. "So, three,
it turns out that now we have made that first step we are going to find out how widespread it is in other sulphate deposits on earth. "And those
lines of evidence will then give us a way to justify going to Mars and looking at gypsum because it looks as though based on these find
