No, this is not the news most of you are interested in, you want to hear about Aliens standing in front of the Rover Cam and saying Hello or saying goodbye before blowing the Rover off, but this a important find.

California (Reuters) -- NASA scientists are excitedly speculating that discoveries made by a Mars rover over the weekend will help them finally unravel whether water played a role in the red planet's geologic history, a science team member said on Monday.

The rover has yet to climb out of the small crater onto the flat Meridiani Planum to examine a large deposit of what may be water-formed hematite.

"Guess what we Found" California Scientists

Now we know something about the water, maybe this will spark a Alien life discovery on Mars. By life I mean the lowest form of single-celled Bacteria, not Martians.

Nasa is fairly convinced that bacteria WERE present on Mars at one time or another:


In the latest study of a 4.5 billion-year-old Martian meteorite, researchers have presented new evidence confirming that 25 percent of the magnetic material in the meteorite was produced by ancient bacteria on Mars. These latest results were published in the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology

the meteorite suggests simple non-terrestial bacteria

but to explain it as being 'Mars fossils' is a s-t-r-e-t-c-h

another candidate is the Exploded Planet, which Mars was a moon to before the cataclysm, any water or
fossil records of life on the planet there as
debris from the exploded planet (now asteroid belt)


This hypothesis is a very long way from being
accepted by the scientific commumity...they will
have to first concede prior pre-biotic mars First,

then onwards & upwards, as the saying goes

The boulder-strewn landscape becomes more treacherous the closer Spirit gets to the crater, which ejected boulders into the surrounding area when a meteor slammed into it eons ago, Manning said.

"We may see craters launched off from well below Gusev crater that may have had some contact with ancient water," Manning said

I think he meant to say boulders here.
Was Manning misquoted, or did he just misspeak?
