Life on Mars Update

Nasa: compelling evidence of life on Mars - Telegraph: "A research team at Johnson Space Centre in Houston has been re-examining a meteorite that hit Antarctica 13,000 years ago, and found the most compelling evidence yet that the planet once harboured bacterial life.

The team says that microscopic crystals found in the rock are almost certainly fossilised bacteria that have many characteristics in common with bacteria found on Earth."

One does have to wonder how other factors might've caused these formations. Finding evidence of Martian life on Mars would be harder to second-guess...
