We've heard of these sort of findings before, but these are even older than anything discovered previously.


Preserved as tiny spheres and tubes, the newly described “microfossils” hail from 200 million years earlier than the next oldest example of fossil microbes, which were announced last year.

It is posible that another planet was hit
by some thing as big as the moon.
and a big bit then hit earth.

But I do agrees the earth had life that long ago.

Once we find life on mars humans will be there shortly afterwards to conquer it as we do with everything else. I always wanted to be a space marine.
