Strongest evidence yet to there being life on Mars'


www.telegraph.co.uk

Martian rocks from a crater hit by a meteorite may contain the strongest evidence yet that there is life on Mars.Prof John Parnell, 55, has co-written a theory with Dr Joseph Michalski, a planetary geologist at the Natural History Museum, that suggests they have discovered the best signs of life in the huge McLaughlin Crater on the surface of Mars.The document, published today in Nature Geoscience journal, describes how they assessed the crater, created by a meteorite which smashed into the surf

As usual, did the search and couldn't find this.


I find this to be more Confirmation of what most of us already assumed.What I find interesting is that they admit the liklihood that there is still a chance of bacteria and Microbes still living in subterranean Cracks. These would be living off hydrogen just like on Earth. Seems like They say no animals would be living underground,but fungi could possibly still exist.

Not that I think this yet how could they know if there was a community living deep under ground like the humans from Zion in The Matrix, LOL

I'm with you on that. Pretty egotistical to think its just us. What an awful waste of space

I have no doubt that there is life out there.
I remember seeing a nature show in which they described the discovery of small living creatures living at the bottom of the ocean on hot volcanic vents.The creatures didn`t need oxygen they live on these hot volcanic vents and survive from the sulfur coming out of the vents.

oxygen isn`t necessary for life and I doubt that water is even necessary, there is no limit as to what kind of lifeforms may have evolved in the universe.

Yep. I'm a big Mars Geek.

I just know I'm going to bust out with excitement if they ever do find microbes still surviving or even something as complex as moss or lichen on a rock there.

Rest of my family is most likely going to give the the Mr. Spock eyebrow treatment over it. But I'll still be excited.

I think there's tons of life all throughout the universe. We just have to find it. :-)

Or has it already found us

What is the significance? If there is actual life found on mars, what does it matter in the grand scheme of our lives here on earth?

I dunno how a meteorite striking the surface of Mars can shoot into atmopsphere and the debris float to earth.

It's like a grape fruit and an apple 150 miles away (comparative) and squishing the apple and the juice floating that far and hitting it (even in zero gravity)

Religious Impacts I would think.


All life Was created by God(as it goes) . therefore if life exists elsewhere it changes things doesn't it?

Not necessarily. I never heard god proclaim in the bible that we were the first life he created, or even the only life

Of course someone might verywell put up some scripture and have me eating my words

I'm like 80% gore but I easily could be wrong.I really feel life existing elsewhere would really be a shellshock to the religious community

So if they do find microbes on Mars will it be the same species as Earths, being a basic lifeform?
Or having evolved on Mars would they be their own type of Martian beast?

Iwould have to assume Martian. But They say these live off hydrogen like on Earth so who Knows

In the Bible, God created angels and life on Earth. That's all it mentions.

Yes But wasn't the idea of a geocentric universe the result of religion assuming life only existed here

The thread title threw me off a bit. It says "best evidence," but the quoted text reads "theory." =(
